Binghamton News Media Shine Light on HCA 'Home Care Proud' Winner: Lourdes at Home


The winning agency in HCA's 'Home Care Proud' contest, to recognize National Home Care Month, garnered some media attention from television and print news.

Lourdes at Home of Vestal was awarded the top honor in our 'Home Care Proud' contest based on a story about Lourdes Therapist Kim Jones who worked with a patient suffering from severe dementia that left the patient bedbound and mostly non-verbal. Through a series of therapies, both physical and cognitive, Ms. Jones was able to help the woman regain her ability to speak and carry on conversations with her husband.


In an interview with the Binghamton area's ABC affiliate, Ms. Jones explained: "We really focus on the patient as a whole. We don’t just look at them as a diagnosis. We get to know the patients, find out what they want to do, what they want to achieve, what their families want them to achieve, find out who they are as a person and work with them that way to help them achieve their goals."
