Employee Newsletter – March
KC is blooming as we prepare to welcome spring on March 20! The reputation of our amazing LCPs and their quality caregiving continues to spread through the state. You will see signs of our growth in all the program updates below.
The growth is a great sign, but staffing continues to be a challenge. Some LCPs have not worked through the pandemic for various reasons. We hope the arrival of the vaccine and change of seasons make this the right time for you to return. If you are ready, please contact email@example.com. We hope to see you soon!
Remember, LCPs earn $150 each time they help us grow our network of caregivers through a successful referral.
It is very exciting that vaccine production and distribution have increased significantly in the past few weeks. Kennedy Care continues to encourage all employees to schedule appointments as soon as possible to protect yourself, your loved, and our clients.
Schedule an appointment:
After both doses, send a photo of your COVID-19 Vaccination Record Card to firstname.lastname@example.org.
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!

Kennedy Care Diversity, Equity and Inclusion
This month, Kennedy Care would love for you to celebrate Women’s History Month with us! Starting as National Women’s History Week, March was officially designated as Women’s History Month in 1987 by Congress. This year’s theme is acting as an extension of last year’s due to COVID-19 causing many events to be canceled, and is being called “Valiant Women of the Vote: Refusing to be Silenced.”
As many of you are aware, caregiving is a female-dominated field, with around 60% of the workforce being women (AARP, 2020). This month, please join us in recognizing all of the wonderful women in your lives, as well as their accomplishments. Here are some links to get started:

CuraVitae is off to a strong start!
- Concierge Tamara Myles launched her first case, expanding CV’s reach from Ann Arbor to the tri-county Metro Detroit area.
- CV is launching an advertising campaign in the coming weeks. The goal is to bring in at least five new clients in the next few months.
- CV hired its first two caregivers and is building out a contingent pool (with two members so far) to support growth.
“We are continuing to learn as we go and grow,” said KC Director of Growth Zach Petroni. “We are feeling very positive about where things are headed with the new business.”
CAT Care is developing in several areas including:
- merging with Complete Care
- adding five new clients
- contracting with therapy companies to provide Physical Therapy, Occupational Therapy, and Speech Language Pathologists for unique client needs.
“We are excited about our new growth,” said Program Director Kim Newman. “We are working hard to improve our processes and increasing our qualified staff to meet the needs of high acuity clients.”
Newman welcomes current employees who know of CNAs, HHAs, or PCTs with experience caring for clients with spinal cord or brain injuries, to get in touch. In addition, she welcomes your client referrals if you know someone who has sustained a work-related or motor vehicle accident.

STC welcomed their first client at All Seasons! Congrats! 🥳
In addition, the team is working to improve internal processes and structures to support the program’s growth. They are also looking for Life Care Professionals and welcome your referrals.
PC started cases in Cheboygan and Traverse City which is the furthest North serviced, to date. PC also received 58 referrals for the month of February and is expecting an increase with Spring right around the corner.
