With the holidays upon us, millions of Americans are gathering together to be with family and loved ones. It’s the most wonderful time of the year for a reason as people congregate and celebrate the season, religious observances, and what’s to come in the new year.
There’s no place like home for the holidays, and homecare plays an important role in uniting families enabling people to participate in holiday festivities.
I’ll be Home for Christmas
Perhaps your home medical equipment is helping you get home for the holidays? AAA reports that “more than 103 million Americans – the most on record—are expected to travel for the year-end holidays.”
This may not come as a surprise, but has not always been possible until the development of home medical equipment and other homecare devices.
Prior to modern-day homecare equipment, people with medical conditions would be forced to remain in hospitals and long-term care facilities– removed from those they love. But now, items like walkers, wheelchairs, and portable oxygen concentrators open up opportunities for all people to navigate busy airports, bus/train stations, and roads as they make their way through the winter wonderland back home.
No Place Like Home for the Holidays
For others, home medical equipment is what enables them to live safely and independently in their homes during the holidays and throughout the year. Homecare is about quality of life. Being with family and loved ones. Maintaining independence and managing health needs from the comfort and convenience of home. Dorothy said it best; there’s simply no place like home. And in the holiday season, that’s all the more true.
Homecare equipment is so much more than the products; it allows the beauty of the human experience to be shared by families and friends across the globe.
Happy holidays from all of us at People for Quality Care. We’re honored to have spent 2016 with you helping seniors, people with disabilities, and others get the home medical equipment they need so that they can be home during this season of love.
