Employee Newsletter – February 2021


February’s Top News

Kennedy Care clients are starting to request caregivers who are immunized against Covid-19. While KC has not yet made the vaccine mandatory, we anticipate that even more of our clients will ask for vaccinated caregivers. We strongly encourage you to get the vaccine to protect your clients, family, and yourself! 

As a reminder, several retail pharmacy chains have partnered with the federal government to help with immunizations. The list of pharmacies is expected to grow, but you can now schedule appointments at most Meijer and Rite-Aid pharmacies.

After both doses, send a photo of your COVID-19 Vaccination Record Card to hr@kennedycare.com.

Concerned about the vaccine?

Check out some of these resources that address legitimate concerns, unfounded myths, and understandable fears. 

Remember, if you know someone who could be a great Life Care Professional, you will earn $150 for a successful referral. 

Ready for work?

Home care is in demand! If you are ready to return to work after time away, please reach out to HR@kennedycare.com. We have numerous opportunities available for our LCPs.

Life Care Professionals of the Month are chosen by their respective teams and each brings amazing caregiving, compassion, and love to our clients and families. Thank you for going the extra mile with your care!

Patriot Care: Regina Gittings
Catastrophic Care: Ashley Patterson
Complete Care: Rebekah Busscher
Safe at Home: Haylee Peterman

Congratulations, LCP’s!

Patriot Care brought in a record 154 referrals this past quarter! Not all of them started care but this shows that PC’s reputation for quality caregiving is growing.

Program Director Jessica Rock said, “We have had caregivers go above and beyond in navigating tough situations and couldn’t do this without them.”

In addition, the PC administrative team grew to eight people, compared to two people this time last year. Great job, team!

Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

February is Black History Month! Also known as African American History Month, this annual celebration has been officially recognized since 1976 but began in 1915. This year’s theme is “Black Family: Representation, Identity, and Diversity.”

As always, the intention of Black History month is not to “dictate or limit the exploration of the Black experience, but to bring to the public’s attention important developments that merit emphasis” (Association for the Study of African American Life and History).

Kennedy Care’s Diversity, Equity and Inclusion committee was founded in June 2020 during the national shockwave and outrage following the death of George Floyd. Since then, a show of Black excellence has risen to the forefront of our American Conscience, and our BIPOC caregivers have proven themselves up for the task. Please join us in celebrating Black History Month by reviewing the links below and getting involved in your communities!

Happy Birthday!

Please join us in celebrating the February  birthdays of our employees!
