It may seem as though there are recognitions, awards, and rewards for just about everything an individual or company can do in our modern society. While some of these honors may seem narrowly focused, they create a positive impression among the general public. Within the home care sector, the more positive stories reach the general public, especially the aging communities, the more it can have a rippling effect, especially as it pertains to perception.
There are numerous myths and misconceptions people have about home care services and some of those can lead seniors and/or their family to discount the value in lieu of the fear. When home health care agencies and companies receive recognition, either local, regional, or national, it paves the way for a positive perception among those who may be looking for these types of services for themselves, a family member, or a friend.
In the news blog published by The Herald Bulletin in Indiana, St. Vincent Home Health named a leading national care provider, written by Stuart Hirsch, it was noted:
““To have achieved this national level recognition for 10 years is such a tribute to our great team of caregivers, support staff and leadership,” Kim Jule, vice president of operations for St. Vincent Home Health, said in a prepared statement. “Our nurses, therapists and aides strive for excellence each day.”
“To be ranked among the top 25 percent of home health care agencies in the United States is an outstanding achievement, and we plan to continue to focus on excellence while providing compassionate, patient-centered, mission-driven care,” Jule added.
St. Vincent Home Health serves Blackford, Delaware, Grant, Hancock, Henry and Madison counties.
St. Vincent Home Health, part of Ascension, is Indiana’s largest faith-based provider of home care and currently serves a population of over 1,800 patients across Indiana.”
This article is, in no way, an endorsement of this home health provider or any of its affiliates, but rather is highlighting the impression that positive recognition, awards, and other accolades can have for the company itself. Getting media attention and also creating improved marketing strategies provide another way to reach out to those in the community who may need these types of services.
Home care agencies dedicated to providing the best care and support for its clients may do well to seek out the various certifications, awards, and other accolades it may well earn and not dismiss them outright. Even the smallest notable recognition can help to mold perception among the general public into a more positive light.
