Although this winter has been fairly mild, New England weather can change rapidly. Seasonal storms can vary greatly from rain or freezing rain, to wind-driven snow and biting cold. These changing conditions can be especially worrisome to patients who are recuperating at home from an illness or injury, or dealing with an advanced illness. They rely on our agencies to provide the care they need, even during the most challenging travel situations.
If you are receiving home health or hospice care from any of the agencies of the Home Health Foundation, you can be confident that our committed staff will brave any weather to be at your door ready to meet your needs. And, if a storm is forecast, they’ll help you plan ahead, ensuring you have an emergency plan in place that includes non-perishable food, water, medications and other supplies. All staff has been thoroughly trained in how to prepare for any emergency situation, so you can be assured you will receive the care you need without interruption.
With 120 years of winter weather experience, we are renowned for our dedication to patients and their families, and pride ourselves on our ability to provide care 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Winter is no match for our determination and spirit of service to our patients.
