New Additions for Third Year of Home Care Services
MANKATO – September marks two years of home care services for the people of Southern Minnesota from locally-owned Freedom Home Care, LLC (FHC). In anticipation of services for year three, FHC has added staff and services to meet the needs of current and future clients.
FHC is now offering medication management services. These services include medication set-up and medication administration. This allows FHC to help monitor the medication a client is taking to ensure they are complying with their medication regimen. Overall the focus is to make sure the client is using their medications appropriately and safely.
Patty Christensen, long-time Registered Nurse and active community member has been hired to facilitate the medication management services in addition to assisting the comprehensive class of clients FHC serves.
Another new addition to the FHC team is Client Care Coordinator Jen Olson. Olson will be assisting clients and client families by performing initial home visits, customizing care plans, coordinating caregivers, maintaining communication and ensuring satisfaction with services.
“Over the past two years we have been dialed in to the needs of our clients and our community,” said Owner and Administrator Chris Mihm, “Medication management services have been requested on several occasions for families with loved ones in need of assistance in their homes. Patty and Jen bring with them experience, professionalism and compassion that will benefit all of our clients and their families.”
