Get paid to learn! Kennedy Care Academy provides courses to help you meet compliance requirements, expand your professional skillset, and increase your paycheck. 

We are pleased to offer a COVID-19 Vaccine course where you’ll learn about phases of administration, availability, safety, frequently asked questions, and myths debunked.

The COVID-19 vaccine is not a KC requirement, but it is strongly encouraged. By getting vaccinated, you help keep our clients, families, and yourself protected. 

Email classroom_teachers@kennedycare if you have questions about the course.

We would like to recognize some of our very special Life Care Professionals! They 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!

Share the Care/All Seasons Update

All Seasons opens this week! All Seasons is a new luxury independent living community in Ann Arbor. The clients live independently but might need help with a few things such as shower assistance or medication assistance. We hope to get our first Share the Care (STC) client as residents begin to move in. For STC at All Seasons, we will be creating wellness packages based on individual needs, providing high-end quality care, and expanding the STC program.

Safe At Home Child Care Updates

Safe At Home is growing! The team reports starting five new, ongoing cases just this week! That number reflects continued growth from 2020, in which SAH worked with more than 400 new families. Great job, team!

Kennedy Care Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

Happy New Year, KC family! As we look forward to the new year and put the tumultuous 2020 in our rearview, a lot of people are bringing their focus to new beginnings, including New Year’s resolutions. This is a tradition that dates back several centuries, with the Roman God Janus representing gateways, doors and transitions. 

This year in particular, many of us are planning to bring light into 2021 in various ways – volunteering, giving blood (January is National Blood Donation month, after all!), mental health wellness and more. Below, we have included many ways that you can shape the New Year to fit your needs and expectations. The last link in this bunch even includes organizer templates to help guide you in achieving your personal and professional goals. 

From all of us at KC, thank you so much for your work and dedication throughout 2020, despite its many challenges – we cannot wait to see what 2021 has in store!
