When a life expectancy forecast of six months or less has been established, hospice care is complete end-of-life clinical, psychosocial, mental, and divine care that gives encouragement and safety to patients and caregivers. Nurses, medics, therapists, social services, home health aides, other professionals, and volunteers provide these services. Hospice Care at Home Agencies are employing VR technology to teach staff and comfort patients, and telemedicine to bring palliative care to rural areas, demonstrating how technology is transforming the way hospice care is given. Palliative care organizations now employ independent software designed exclusively for the delivery of this emerging style of treatment. As a result, it's critical for hospitals to have healthcare-specific tools that allow their team to focus on the outcomes, populations, and modeling characteristics necessary to train a model and enhance its hospice home care delivery rather than lower-level activities like data cleaning and normalization.

Fueling growth, advancing quality in health care, and advocating for the industry have been at the heart of what we do since 1982. This year, the National Association for Home Care & Hospice wants to celebrate one of the most meaningful touchstones of our industry – connection. The art of connecting is how we together support more than two million nurses, therapists, aides, and other caregivers that provide in-home services to 12 million Americans. Connection is key to promoting health and preventing illness – understanding experiences, perspectives, combined with the power of communication, is how we'll continue to impact home care and hospice. So let's link up, lead, and plan big changes in home care and hospice. Changes brought on by the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic have already accelerated developments in health care with at-home technologies and testing, telehealth, robots, and Zoom annual check-ups. This increase in interconnectivity has signaled significant changes in the industry while further underscoring the need for real human connections.

World Hospice and Palliative Care Day takes place on October 9 with the goal of improving the quality of life for people affected by serious health problems. Those that have life-limiting illnesses have the right to be cared for in the way that best suits their needs and this holiday emphasizes that. It draws attention to that belief in a myriad of ways; one of which is that every second year, a wave of concerts known as Voices for Hospices takes place to entertain and spread joy.
This year we would like to make it more special than ever as we are celebrating 40 years since we welcomed our first patients, remembering each person we’ve ever had the privilege of looking after and walking in tribute to them. The theme of this year’s event is 1982, the year Jersey Hospice Care began. It’s also when Madonna signed her first record contract, ET hit the big screen and Prince William was born! Then and ever since, our charity has kept going the extra mile to give outstanding, compassionate care and support to local families at the toughest time of their lives. It’s the continued kindness of people like you that makes this possible.

Join the Texas Association for Home Care & Hospice for a 2-day virtual conference that will provide fresh perspectives to empower leaders for successful policy and procedure transformations. The Public Health Emergency (PHE) due to the COVID-19 Pandemic lasted much longer than anyone anticipated or desired. Many regulations were adapted to assist agencies as they attempted to continue providing care in extraordinary circumstances. As the industry attempts to return to more normal operations we have to wonder if it will it ever be truly “normal” again? Do we really want it to be?
Some aspects, such as the ability to work remotely, have boosted employee satisfaction and increased productivity. Is bringing everyone back to in person working situations the best plan? Should we have clinicians back in the office for education, meetings and case conferences? Will changes impact my current staffing challenges, and how? This session will help you inspire your team, through culture and leadership, to begin the process of defining what the “new normal” looks and feels like for your organization.
