This Home Health Revealed episode takes place ON THE ROAD!
Michael Greenlee and Hannah Vale set up the recording booth in the middle of
the Missouri Alliance for Home Care Annual Conference to hear from home health leaders
and committee members who are in the trenches of home health. Hear their
challenges and some of the creative solutions they are using to meet those
Brooke Kendrick with NorthEast
Independent Living of Hannibal Missouri is on the task force at the
Missouri Alliance for HomeCare. She discusses leadership challenges that come
with staffing and how her agency is taking advantage of state regs that have
lowered initial training requirements. She is working to meet increasing
demands and get workers in homes quicker.
Her agency has also been able to raise wages to attract and
retain staff. Her commitment to the industry is making a difference in the care
offered in Missouri.
Carol Hudspeth from MAHC (Missouri Alliance for Home
Care) gives insight into the consideration and prep it takes to create the
experience for the annual conference. MAHC members have access to educational
opportunities and advocacy. Check out information about membership and resources
at Homecaremissouri.org. And
plan ahead for the 2024 gathering at Margaritaville.
Stephanie Truex from Johnson County Community Health Services
is working hard to overcome the discrepancy between reimbursement and staffing
wages. She has particular interest in data and the home health value based purchasing
model that is impacting her agency.
In the effort to hire and keep talent,
when hiring, she looks for some particular attributes that might be surprising.
Peggy Bone with Elara Caring, (who also happened
to be our “home room mother” for our conference presentation) has a drive to
help her team be the best PEOPLE they can be by proving flexibility within home
health. Elara Caring has put talent acquisition and referral programs in place
that are helping their agencies across the US. And if that isn’t enough, she is also star of
the “Peggy Road Show!” to check in on clinicians in a more personal manner and
give them shouts on the FOND board!
She is on the MAHC board and in charge of membership. If you’re interested in learning more about the
benefits of membership, she’s the one you want to talk to!
