 Suzanne Kennedy, RN

I am a 1994 graduate of St. Joseph Hospital School of Nursing and in 2006 obtained my Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree from Eastern Mennonite University. I am married to my husband Mike and we have two grown children and five amazing grandchildren. I have 20 years of work experience in community health and home care nursing. It is my passion to provide holistic care to the elderly, serve as an advocate, and offer support so they can maintain their independence and age in their homes for as long as possible. I view each day as an opportunity to positively impact our clients’ lives and it is a privilege to be part of the PA Home Care Team.

I was born and raised in Lancaster County.  This area has a very large elder population, and as a result, I grew up being in tune to the respective needs of my elder neighbors.  I studied Government and Economics at Millersville University, because I was interested in the way that people organize themselves.  I spent approximately three months as an intern in Harrisburg on the Independent Regulatory Review Commission.  I found my experience working in Harrisburg a bit unrewarding because I didn’t feel a personal enough connection to the constituents affected by the regulations and bills that were under review.  I have found a much more satisfying mission in elder care.  It gives me the opportunity to help people in need.  I am able to visit their homes, and I see the ways in which our assistance has relieved some of their hardship.  I am proud to help these folks age with dignity and maintain as much of their independence as possible, for as long as possible, in the comfort and safety of their own homes.

 

 Michelle Reinhart, Billing/Payroll Co-Ordinator Michelle 2015

I have lived in Lancaster County all my life.  I have two wonderful children who keep me very busy!  I have been employed by PA Home Care for many years.  I enjoy working with the caregivers and the clients.  Many things I do are behind the scenes.  Over the years I have helped with scheduling, processing timesheets, and working on payroll.  Currently I take care of billing and payroll needs. As well as help to get our quarterly trainings organized and documented, and help with tasks from document distribution to data processing to informational mailings.    It’s a blessing to have the opportunity to work for a company that helps so many people that are unable to help themselves.

 

BonnieLong Bonnie Long, Care Co-Ordinator

I was born and raised in Lancaster County and have lived here all of my life.  I’ve been happily married for the last seventeen years to my wonderful husband.  I first found my passion for caregiving in 2004, when my mother was diagnosed with a terminal brain tumor.  I moved in with my parents because my father was visually impaired and could not take care of all of my mothers’ needs.  That is when I was first introduced to Hospice.  They taught me how to bathe her, comfort her, and take care of all her daily needs, since she was bedbound.  She passed away two months later, then my father moved in with my husband and me.  We began to take care of him.  The first five years he was fairly independent, but during the last two years his congestive heart failure and his leukemia worsened.  He passed away in 2011.  I started working for PA Home Care in January 2009.  I wanted to do something part-time and since I had already been taking care of my parents, and enjoyed that, I knew this would be a perfect fit.  I am so glad that I have had the opportunity to help the elderly in our area be comfortable and assist them with all their daily needs.

 

SherriTwymanSherri Twyman, Care Co-Ordinator

I found my love for caregiving in 2002 when I began caring for a disabled family member.  In 2009 I was employed in a nursing facility.  It was there that I gained many certifications; Med-Tech, First Aid, CPR (adult and infant), Fire Safety, Silver Chair Classes, Direct Care, Diabetic Care, Abuse Training, and an Oxygen Machine Course.  When I found that I could care for those who need me the most in the comfort of their home, all of the pieces fit together.  It is truly my pleasure and privilege to serve the individuals that PA Home Care of Lancaster entrusts me with; I am proud to demonstrate that “With Hearts and Hands, We Care” and we’re happy to provide that help and care to those who need us.

 

imageLynn Greiner, Personnel

I have lived in Lancaster County my entire life. In fact, I took piano lessons as a young girl in the house that is now the PA Home Care office. My husband, Bruce and I have been married for 30 years and we have one son, Kyle and a cat, Richard. On my day’s off we enjoy going to antique stores and flea markets to look for old Pennsylvania bottles which my husband collects. I love to cook, read and work on crossword puzzles. I graduated from Millersville University with a degree in Business. This took me to managing a retail shop store for many years. In early 2013, the opportunity presented itself to switch career paths and I began caregiving for PA Home Care. I will continue to provide care to our wonderful clients for as long as my work in the office allows. Helping the elderly stay in their homes is a most rewarding feeling. The people I provide care for are so appreciative and thankful for everything I do for them. It is a joy to go to work every day and know you made a difference in someone’s day.
