Senator Louis P. DiPalma honored by Rhode Island Partnership for Home Care

STATE HOUSE - On Thursday, May 7, the Rhode Island Partnership for Home
Care honored Sen. Louis P. DiPalma (D-Dist. 12, Middletown, Newport,
Little Compton, Tiverton) under the State House rotunda.  Sen. DiPalma
was honored due to his tireless efforts in advocating for the hard
working home health care professionals of the state.

"Our state's home healthcare providers are an essential component to the
well being of so many of our residents.  Unfortunately, they, and their
vital work, are too often forgotten with the constant changes to our
healthcare system," said Sen. DiPalma.  "I am honored to advocate on
their behalf to make sure their critical services to those that are most
in need are duly recognized and compensated," added Sen. DiPalma.

"Senator DiPalma believes that CNA's should not be earning close to
minimum wage for healthcare services in which they deliver in the homes
of our eldest, poorest and sickest Rhode Islanders.  He believes they
deserve a competitive wage and access to the same quality healthcare
that they provide in the community.  For these reasons, we would like to
recognize Senator DiPalma as an advocate for the home healthcare
community," said Nicholas Oliver, Executive Director of the Rhode Island
Partnership for Home Care.

The Rhode Island Partnership for Home Care (RIPHC) was established in
1990 and is the only organization in the state dedicated to "advancing
quality healthcare at home". RIPHC represents home care, home nursing
care, and hospice provider agencies licensed by the Rhode Island
Department of Health to serve patients and clients in every Rhode Island
community.
