The 2018 Home Care and Hospice Conference & Expo, organized by the National Association for Home Care  & Hospice (NAHC), takes place October 7-9 in Grapevine, Texas. This is where more than 2,000 professionals involved in the home health care and hospice sector have a chance to meet and network with industry leaders, service providers/vendors and others; as well as learn more about the industry, its opportunities and challenges.  Manchester Specialty Programs, an NAHC affinity partner, will be exhibiting at the conference (booth #1133), and encourages insurance agents specializing in home health care/hospice, or looking to expand their footprint in this growth industry, to attend.
