Immaculate Homecare Services recognizes that Skilled Nursing Care has become more complex, intensive, and long-lasting than in the past, and there is barely enough preparation for this role. From the physical health, psychological, emotional, and social effects, caregivers give a lot more than is expected of them, at least theoretically. To honor caregivers, the American Health Care Association (AHCA) established the National Skilled Care Week, which recognizes the essential role of skilled nursing care agencies and centers in caring for America’s elderly, disabled and ailing. In solidarity, we hosted a car parade this year as we celebrated our caregivers and all the healthcare heroes around the Woburn area in Massachusetts.
Appreciating our Healthcare Heroes
This year’s celebration was met with several challenges due to the COVID-19 social distancing rules and the inability of family and friends to enter the caregiving centers. Uncertainties on how long this will continue have changed the daily activities of the caregivers and our clients. However, one certain thing is our caregivers are playing a crucial part in passionately providing exemplary homecare services and saving lives. Immaculate Homecare Services partnered with a number of nursing centers around Woburn, where our car parade would pass by these centers and honor our healthcare heroes from their respective centers. We appreciate all healthcare heroes around the country.
