Rachel Kruger RN, Executive Director

As Executive Director, I make sure the service we promise to our clients and their families is exactly what they experience. This is done by making sure our caregivers have the information and training they need to carry out their care plans and by fully supporting them throughout their time visiting our clients. I appreciate the opportunity to connect with so many people in my role, and I look forward to connecting with you.
