Governor Branstad Proclaims November Home Care Month

Governor Terry Branstad proclaimed November as Home Care Month for the state of Iowa.  Working with IAHC, the governor stated in the document that the purpose of the official proclamation was to “encourage the support and participation of all citizens in learning more about the home care and hospice concepts of the elderly, disabled and infirm.”  The governor’s office presented a copy of the proclamation to IAHC Executive Director Greg Boattenhamer, signed by both Governor Branstad and Secretary of State Matt Schultz.
