These caregivers provide vital services to Americans who are aged, disabled, and ill. Some 12 million patients depend on home care and hospice providers. They, in turn, depend on NAHC for the best in advocacy, education, and information. NAHC is a nonprofit organization that strives for excellence in all respects. We help our members maintain the highest standards of care.
