Home care provider joins in national observance

Gentiva Home Health in Grand Junction has joined in an observance of National Home Care & Hospice Month in November. The observance honors home health and hospice workers.

“We are so appreciative of the selflessness, compassion and commitment of our caregivers at Gentiva Home Health and always excited to recognize their efforts on behalf of others during National Home Care & Hospice Month,” said Rebecca Sterry, branch director.

Home care includes nursing and assistance in managing disease as well as help with nutrition, therapy and daily activities, Sterry said. “We make it possible for more of our citizens to recover from surgery or manage chronic illnesses at home — among family and friends — and avoid unnecessary visits to the hospital or other institutions.”

Gentiva Home Health is a division of Kindred Healthcare, a national home health care and hospice services provider. For more information, call 257-1275.
