Why Did You Choose to Become a Home Health or Hospice Provider? Assisting others and providing exceptional service to clients has always been my passion.
Mentor Who Has Helped Me the Most in My Career: Carlotta Mason provided me with my first leadership training and led by setting a wonderful example.
How Do You See Your Profession Changing in the Next Few Years? Private duty care is always evolving to meet the needs of the client.
Why Are You a NAHCHA Member and What Value Do You Receive From Your Membership? Tabitha’s Home Health Care program and Home Care Specialties private duty look to NAHCHA as a resource partner addressing topics that are occurring in industry.

Career You’d Like to Try if You Weren’t a Home Health or Hospice Provider: Proof reader of books
Share a Story About Caring for a Patient that Was a Rewarding Experience: Being able to listen to a client’s story and learning their desire for the future, then being able to coordinate care among our services is so rewarding. An elder can experience care from our private duty and adult day programs then transition to home health care and hospice or an assisted living or skilled care. There is great satisfaction from knowing that we can provide the whole continuum of care to our elders.
