Our Mission

Home Health Care Advocacy and You

BAYADA Hearts for Home Care (H4HC) is an advocacy organization made up of thousands of home care recipients, their friends and family members, and home care professionals concerned about the challenges facing home care today. 

Our advocacy in health care continues to push towards the ultimate goal: to improve the entire home care ecosystem and to make it more sustainable, particularly for seniors and individuals living with disabilities and medical complexities.

Creating Long-Lasting Change

Important Issues H4HC is Battling Today

  • Caregiver workforce shortage

    Children, adults, and seniors who are prescribed home care services struggle to find the care they need because of the shortage of professional in-home caregivers in the workforce.

  • Access to care issues

    As professional caregivers leave the home care industry to find jobs where they can earn more in wages, the home care workforce continues to shrink.

  • Bias favoring institutional care

    One of the most backwards aspects of these issues is that home care is well-known to be the patient-preferred and most cost-effective long-term care option. Additionally, the COVID-19 pandemic has shined a light on America’s overdependence on institutional care like hospitals and nursing homes.

Joining Together

We invite you to be a Heart for Home Care Advocate today, and join us in the fight to give home care the attention and support it deserves. Join today to help give more Americans access to quality health care in the place they most want to be – at home.
