New England Home Care Conference Has a New Name

NEHCC-2015-Logo-Square-TransparentThe 2015 six-state home care conference and trade show has changed its name to the New England Home Care & Hospice Conference and Trade Show.

“All of the past few conferences had workshops on hospice clinical and financial issues,” said Patricia Kelleher of the Home Care Alliance of Massachusetts, “so it made sense to showcase this in the title.”

Many of the state association partners — Vermont Association for Home Care & Hospice, Connecticut Association for Health Care at Home, Rhode Island Partnership for Home Care & Hospice and the Maine Alliance for Home Care & Hospice — have represented  hospice issues locally and on the federal level for years.

“We hope to have a keynote speaker that will address this important sector of our industry” said Deborah Hoyt of the Connecticut association.

Additionally, the Exhibit Hall will feature hospice products and services hospice.
