In addition to being able to work with a patient one-on-one and without distractions, Susan, Director of Education, said that keeping the patient at home is the main goal. “We do not give up,” added Sharita, a Medical Social Worker. “We will work with you until you achieve your goal.”
Pedro works as a Registered Nurse for Kindred at Home. “I am very passionate about healthcare and have been since I was in elementary school in Cuba,” Pedro said. “My father was a doctor and my mother was a nurse. And where I come from, you don’t get into medicine for financial reward – you get into it because it’s what you really want to do," he said." I’ve been with Kindred for almost 7 years and it is the best company I’ve worked for."

Suzanne is a physical therapist with Kindred at Home in Orlando, Florida. She chose her career after enduring multiple knee surgeries when she was a young soccer player.
“Physical therapists gave me back my independence and inspired my passion to become a therapist myself,” she said.
Suzanne recently cared for a patient who had returned home from the hospital after being treated with radiation therapy for metastatic liver cancer.
“He was a very quiet and understanding person,” Suzanne reflected. “He also truly made the most of the time he had with his loved ones. For me, it was very rewarding to be a part of his care, and his family was appreciative of what we do. It melted my heart to be a part of this process – it’s why I do what I do.”

Kindred at Home and Kindred Hospice seek to deliver quality professional medical, rehabilitative, palliative and end-of-life care for all patients, including those with acute, long-term or terminal needs. Our experienced nurses, therapists and aides focus on each unique patient to deliver the appropriate care and emotional support to our patients and their families.
For our home health care patients, we enable them to remain at home – or safely return home - after a stay in another acute or post-acute setting - in familiar surroundings as they receive critical medical and rehabilitative care essential for full recovery and independence.
We provide the most cost-effective option for medical and rehabilitative care within the post-acute continuum and offer a seamless transition back home for patients following acute or other post-acute care, reducing costly rehospitalizations.
For our personal home care assistance and community care clients and families, we provide support with activities of daily living to help older adults remain in their homes as long as possible. Attentive care to prevent falls and reminders to adhere to medication regimens also prevent hospitalizations.
For our hospice patients and their families, our team of caregivers offers compassion, hope and the alleviation of pain and suffering in an environment of support that provides patients with dignity and recognizes their unique needs as well as the needs of their entire families.
We operate seamlessly across the care continuum to ensure smooth and less costly transitions.
