HCR Salutes Veterans
By Dave Carro, Marketing ManagerVeteran’s Day was November 11, and HCR Home Care is proud to support, honor, and care for veterans. Veterans have served our country in a way only a select few Americans can claim. They’ve fought for our freedoms and interests worldwide, and did it with honor and dignity. The compassionate caregivers at HCR Home Care appreciate the sacrifices these brave men and women have made.
HCR recognizes the unique needs of our distinguished veterans, and has taken the steps necessary to create a veteran-friendly home care environment… one that provides vets with the best quality home care. Our skilled health care professionals offer expert home care to veterans with all types of health-related needs, including medical and surgical care, chronic disease care, and pain management. In addition, HCR provides a full complement of home health aide services. Working under the direction of our nurses and therapists, home health aides assist our veterans with activities of daily living such as bathing, dressing, meal preparation, laundry, coordinating appointments, running errands, and providing companionship.
In addition, the clinical care coordinators at HCR work in partnership with Veteran’s Administration personnel to maximize VA and Medicare benefits for veterans – ensuring they receive the full range of services to which they are entitled. The close relationship HCR has with the VA and regional VA health centers helps provide peace-of-mind for our veterans, and allows them to focus on improving their wellness.
Home care services are often recommended by VA discharge planners, physicians, or by a social workers at the hospital; these individuals will generally initiate referrals to HCR. However, veterans may contact HCR at any time at 585-272-1930 and ask for assistance in starting services.
