My grandparents were both in a nursing home in northeast Ohio for the last few years of their life; my grandfather with Alzheimer’s. My father-in-law was lost to cancer. All three of them went through their final weeks of life in hospice care. While the medical care given in all three situations was excellent, I strongly believe there are avenues we can take to improve the level of personalized care. Through all our family experiences combined with my passion for patient-centered healthcare, I’ve decided to commit my life to helping others improve the quality of their healthcare as well as the healthcare of their loved ones.
