CellTrak and NAHC Renew Home Care Aide Scholarship for 2021
Schaumburg, Il & Washington, D.C. – 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 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 that 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 the Marketplace booth #609 to register!
“We are incredibly happy to offer this scholarship program again this year,” said, Andrew Kaboff, Founder and CRO, CellTrak. “Last year it was quite humbling reading over 500 nominations to select our winners. As a company we took time to read over 30 of the sories to our staff to ensure they know why they work so hard each day to deliver an easy to use product for the frontline. Each story was more touching than the next. From a single mom working during COVID after losuing it all in a fire, to an eight-month pregnant CNA providing care even when there wasn’t enough PPE. We are truly inspired by the individuals and are very happy to award more deserving individuals this year.”
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 in during Home Care & Hospice Month November 2021.
