American As Apple Pie – Hats off to At Home Care
An interesting book is forthcoming from Eileen Boris and Jennifer Klein. It is :
“Caring for America: Home Care Workers Are Changing the Face of American Labor”

Making the Private Public
She is the face of home care: For forty-seven years, single mother Evelyn Hawks has looked after her developmentally disabled daughter, Hester Brown. A former data entry operator, Hawks, who is African American, provides the kind of care her adult child requires under California’s In Home Supportive Services (IHSS) program, which pays for her efforts.

As we head into the Memorial Holiday Weekend – we have much to be reminded of and mindful on – including the tremendous freedom that we enjoy as a result of the sacrifices made by so many in our military. Thank you, and a million ‘thank yous’ are not enough!
We are mindful of the many senior citizens and others receiving cost-effective home health and home care services in the home at home in Greensboro and surrounding areas in the Piedmont Triad!

Over this long weekend, or over the next month, consider taking time to talk with the legislators and lawmakers who represent your district, to tell them how important it is to you, a loved one, a parent, maybe your spouse, or even your sister or brother, to have properly funded home health and home care programs, and the positive difference this has made in your or their lives.
We at Hearthside Home Care in Greensboro NC Thank you, and God Bless America, and for the preservation of cost-saving Medicare and Medicaid programs! They are all about the right services at the right price, at the right time, and at the right place!
