President Jim Erickson C omIl]uni_i00 Carolyn Kirchner newest staff member Shetek Home Care wel- comes Carolyn Kirchner, RN as the newest staff member in the Home Health pro- gram. Shetek Home Care is a division of the Shetek Medical Services, working through the three hospitals of Westbrook, Slayton and Tracy. Department director for Home Health Care in all three facilities is Marianne Boerbom. Kirchner brings 25 years of valuable experience to her position in Home Health Care. She became very familiar with the Westbrook community as she worked as a Registered Nurse for the Westbrook hospital and clin- ic for 17 years. Kirchner then served as the Director of Nurses for the communi- ty's nursing home, for nearly four years. She most recent- ly worked with the Murray County Public Health pro- gram, which involved much home health care to begin with. "Public Health involved a lot of teaching programs. I worked with New-Mom vis- its, nutritional and WIC pro- grams, handicapped child care, ehings like that." explains Kirchner. "Now with Home Health Care. I will get-back to the more hands-on, clinical work. I realize that I missed the gerontology, I really enjoy the older age group." In explaining Shetek Home Care, Kirchner reminds the public that these services are available to all individuals regardless of their age. A physician's order does need to be obtained, but Kirchner can assist with that contact. An individual, relative or friend, may make request for Home Health Care for any variety of reasons. Home Health Care is useful when there has been a surgery and dressings need to be changed, IV therapy is required, or blood pressure or blood sugar needs to be monitored.

Shetek Therapy Services work closely with Home Health Care, in order to pro- vide any physical, occupa- tional or speech therapy that may be necessary. Again. communication with the doe- tor and client can be handled through the Home Health Care nurse. "We can assist with bathing and personal care", adds Kirehner. 'q'his service could allow a person to stay in their own home for a longer period of time." An important issue for any client, is how this service will be paid for. "Some peo- ple think that Home Health will be really expensive, but it doesn't have to be," assures Kirchner.
