Tell us Your Home Care Hero Stories

Home care and hospice aides, nurses, therapists, and other frontline staff have acted courageously in the face of America’s worst pandemic of our lifetime.

They’ve done so at the epicenter of this international crisis, in New York, through countless individual deeds of heroism that exemplify the true principles and spirit of home care and hospice. They’ve stepped up to treat and monitor the effects of a lethal new virus, serving the intensive post-acute needs of patients returning home from the hospital suffering with illness. They’ve reassured patients who are scared. They’ve taken every measure to keep patients safe – and to help them feel safe. They’ve adapted to a new reality and entirely new ways of practicing home care. 

Please tell us their stories by completing the online form below as part of HCA’s new Home Care Hero recognition campaign.

When HCA receives your entry, we’ll contact you by email to confirm receipt of your submission.  If you have submitted a photograph of your hero, both the photograph and the story will be featured on HCA's website as well as on social media.  If you prefer to submit a brief video rather than a photograph, please contact Jenny Kerbein at jkerbein@hcanys.org or at (518) 810-0659.  

We plan to feature several of these profiles at HCA’s Annual Conference on August 25 and 26. Individuals featured in our online profiles will also automatically receive a “Home Care Hero” button to wear proudly as they continue their great work in their community!
