November is National Home Care Month, a special time to recognize and celebrate the practice of home care and all the individuals who make it possible. The National Association for Home Care & Hospice (NAHC) is excited to partner with CellTrak to award deserving home care aides with the opportunity to pursue their educational goals and advance their careers.
This year, during the month of November, two scholarships will be granted to deserving home care aides. In addition, during Home Care Aide Week, November 8-14, two scholarships will be granted each day. That makes a total of 20 scholarships, each worth $500, over the course of National Home Care Month. Home care aides are vital to the transformation of our health system and this new scholarship program will afford twenty recipients the opportunity to continue their education.
“This scholarship is a proven way to help home care aides advance their careers, tell their stories of what caregiving means to them, and highlight the difference it has made in the lives of their patients,” says William A. Dombi, Esq., President of NAHC. “America needs to hear from the people who provide care to our most vulnerable citizens.”
“With the impact of COVID on our industry, we realized our commitment to the scholarship program for 2020 needed to be doubled, to 20 scholarships! In March, many of our home care aides found themselves forced to make tough choices, and yet they remained at the forefront of caring for our family and friends in their homes. Because of their dedication, we want to recognize and support their efforts in continuing a career path as a homecare hero!” Andrew Kaboff, Founder of CellTrak.
Applications for this home care aide-specific scholarship program must be completed by Friday, October 30 and scholarship recipients will be announced in November.
