Testimonials for Home Care & Hospice Conference & Expo

Of course we think our conference was a huge success, but don’t just take our word for it, hear what our attendees and exhibitors had to say.


“The 2018 NAHC Home Care and Hospice Conference had something for everyone. Educational topics were varied and I was able to bring back useful information about compliance, financial management, operations and leadership to my colleagues. The Expo provided a tremendous opportunity to network with industry professionals and to learn more about the products and services that are tailored to fit the needs of today’s home health and hospice businesses. For me, the conference was extremely beneficial and I am looking forward to attending the 2019 event in Seattle.”
– Zaundra Ellis, Hospice Product Manager, Axxess*

“This was an amazing learning opportunity for me as a Director of a small rural home health and hospice. Between Mary Carr and Theresa Forster, I felt like we had two intelligent individuals dissecting and interpreting all the changes for those of us that cannot spend time on regulatory issues.”
– Carol Whitehair, Director, Home Health and Hospice of Dickinson County


“The rate and constant change in the Home Health and Hospice industries requires access to vital information, education and collaboration.  The 2018 Home Care and Hospice Conference is the only place to gain access to industry experts, keep current on legislative/regulatory changes and exchange strategies and tactics with one’s peers.  It simple remains the best conference value available in the industry!”
– Mark Kulik, Managing Director, The Braff Group

“NAHC’s 2018 conference was beneficial to me, in many ways. It was nice to connect with others in the industry and network with other Presidents in organizations that are of, similar size.

– Jennie Perrelli, Director of Events, Education and Outreach, Simione Healthcare Consultants

“At NAHC, we engaged with over 50 high level home health agency executives and staff. In just the 48 hours after the event, we’ve booked follow up meetings with a great many of those. NAHC 2018 was a fantastic conference, so much so we’ve already booked to exhibit in 2019. The NAHC team does a fantastic job organizing the event. As a startup, we have to be very careful where we invest our capital, but the value for money was clear here.”
– Christopher McCann, CEO and founder of Snap40

“We have been part of NAHC for over eight years, and it’s always great to participate in the annual Conference.  This year’s event in Grapevine was a solid event for us.  In addition to catching up with existing clients, our team was able to engage at least a dozen different prospective clients that are just beginning to consider our alternative.  The expo was a great way to start this process. “We appreciate the opportunity to spend some quality time with current and future clients.”
– Joseph Stergios, Business Development Manager of Enterprise Fleet Management

“Thank you for your patience in working with us to get the booth set up at the 11th hour! Our clients from Saudi Arabia are interested in setting up the first home care agency in that country and they were very glad that they attended and met several people that are interested in the open positions AND moving to Saudi Arabia. We even made the Saudi news about their trip to the USA, also know that they are interested in attending the NAHC conference next year.

“I hope that from your perspective it was a great conference. It was from ours!”
