Wichita Nurse Manager Handoff

It is a time of mixed emotions as we say goodbye to one of our employees, Lindsay McLean, Wichita Nurse Manager. We are sad to see her go and wish her and her family nothing but the best as they move to Oregon! We are very excited to have our very own Ruthy Bonilla step in and take over running the Wichita office. Many of the employees already know Ruthy, as she has been the Assistant Nurse Manager in Wichita, and we are very lucky to have her!

Ottawa County Parade

The Ottawa County Annual fair was July 19th-22nd. This year the theme was “FairAdise” for the parade that kicks off the week of activities. This is the second year that Accessible Home Health entered a float in the parade. Keeping with the theme of the fair, the team decorated the trailer (driven by Tyler Crosson) with pools, palm trees, and beach accessories. The hits of the parade were the super soaker water guns that the staff used to cool down the lines of people watching the parade and the buckets full of candy and chilled water. Showing support to the community and giving back is a great attribute and trait within the company.

PEDALFEST

PEDALFEST WICHITA

Gear up to Give Back

Employees from the Wichita branch of Accessible Home Health were pleased to have been a part of PedalFest with Heartspring Pediatric Services on August 22nd of this year.  Last year, PedalFest raised over $69,000 for the Pediatric Services Financial Assistance Fund, which provides financial support for therapies and services at Heartspring. Heartspring provided $101,000 in financial support to local families, providing life-changing therapies to 135 children.

Riders had the option of participating in one of 4 races, including a 25K, 50K, 100K, or a 5-mile family ride.  The Accessible Home Health booth provided information to passers-by about the availability of services to families with special needs children.  The kids who joined their families at PedalFest
enjoyed the candy and balloons at the booth! We met a multitude of generous and kind people and cannot wait to participate in PedalFest 2016!
