Thanks to caregivers

Chances are you or someone close to you has been in need of help from a caregiver. November is National Home Care and Hospice Month, and we want people to be aware that there are available services for those times we can’t do it ourselves.

The decision is usually difficult to make, but once made, it also is not easy to find quality care at an affordable price. The caregivers need to be recognized for their hard, often backbreaking work. It requires an enormous amount of compassion and patience serving the sick and elderly. While it is an energy-sapping job and the pay is usually meager, it gives one great satisfaction of helping by bringing care and comfort to those in need.

We congratulate the five home health care aides who were awarded this month by the Statewide Caregiver Recognition Program as “Heroes in the Home.” Honored for their dedication and tireless efforts in providing home care were Deborah Desrosier, Diane Buckley, Haley Burdash, Russel Lahart and Tracy Moses of North Country Home Services.

We hope that you or your family never need home care or hospice, but it is comforting knowing we have quality care available in our communities if needed. We appreciate those who have dedicated themselves to such a noble profession and hope more in the future answer the calling.
