CellTrak and NAHC Renew Home Care Aide Scholarship for 2021
Schaumburg, Il & Washington, D.C. (July 29, 2021) – CellTrak, the provider of the industry’s leading mobile solution empowering better outcomes for home and community care, and the National Association for Home Care & Hospice (NAHC), announced today they’ll continue their joint scholarship program for home care aides that debuted in 2020.
Home care aides are the backbone of home and community-based services, providing patients with care that helps them reclaim their independence while staying comfortably in their homes. The recent coronavirus pandemic has proven our loved ones are safer and healthier when cared for in their homes. Without caregivers bravely venturing into patients homes during the height of the pandemic, no such care could be provided.
“NAHC is thrilled to be continuing our partnership with CellTrak. This scholarship is a proven way to help home care aides advance their careers, tell their stories of what caregiving means to them, and highlight the difference it has made in the lives of their patients,” says William A. Dombi, Esq., President of NAHC. “America needs to hear from the people who provide care to our most vulnerable citizens.”
November is National Home Care Month, a time to celebrate the practice of home care and all of the individuals who make it possible. Part of November's celebrations includes one week dedicated to home care aides, in particular. In honor of home care aide week, CellTrak and NAHC will offer twenty recipients a $500 scholarship to continue their educational efforts and further themselves in the industry.
This year, nominations open early and onsite during the Financial Management Conference in Chicago hosted by NAHC from August 1-3. Please make sure to stop in at the Marketplace booth #609 to register!
“We were very humbled last year as we received and read over 500 nominations of our homecare hero’s. Each nominee’s story was more touching than the next and through them we found our inspiration to be the best CellTrak team by continuing to support our caregivers through the holiday season. I couldn’t be prouder of the CellTrak team and the legacy we are leaving. We we are thrilled to be awarding another 20 Homecare Aide Scholarships in 2021.” said, Andrew Kaboff, Founder of CellTrak.
This will be the second year a scholarship program will be offered through NAHC for home care aides specifically. Aides awarded with scholarships will be announced during Home Care & Hospice Month in November 2021.
