The reason our home health, hospice and orthopedic clients choose us, is because we have the best therapists on our team. Truly. We scout the best and then before hiring, we require evaluations to understand strengths and weaknesses and from there, provide additional training. It doesn’t stop once they’re on board though. We know the best in their fields never stop learning. To encourage continual knowledge, we continue training and even have a mentorship program.

All of that being said, we want to introduce you to one of our amazing therapists–Irene Jimenez. She’s a selfless caregiver who goes above and beyond for her home health patients. She has even independently purchased equipment and household items for patients who can’t afford what they need.

We asked Irene a few questions, so we can all learn a bit more about our therapist of the month.

Q: How long have you been practicing therapy?

A: Nearly 30 years. And I’ve been with YTS for almost two years.

Q: How long have you been in the home health setting?

A: 20 Years–so the majority of my career. I initially switched to working in home care so I could have more flexibility with my children. But, I soon discovered my passion for working with the elderly. I adore every single patient I see. I love each and every one of them.  I can’t believe I get paid to do something that I enjoy so much.

Q: What do you like to do when you’re not working?

A: I love Professional Football, Basketball and baseball.  We try to go see as many games as we can. I am married with three children–two are actually twins. They are all in college.

Thank you for providing quality and impassioned care, Irene. We’re so happy to have you on our team.
