"My job is about building relationships with patients and their families. I give them my attention, my ear, and my advice. I love what I do.”
Ayisha Home Health Aide, Home Care
As a Health Aide in Home Care, Ayisha is so grateful for the one-on-one time she has with patients. She wasn’t used to that when she worked all day in a facility setting. “My job is about building relationships and getting to know patients and their families. I give them my attention, my ear, and my advice.” Ayisha always finds a way to laugh with her patients, too. “I love what I do.”
“It is a privilege to be a part of someone's end-of-life journey. It's a really important and beautiful time. It's rewarding."
Iris Home Health Aide, Hospice
Working as a Home Health Aide in Hospice, Iris gets to meet many different people in many different settings. Patients at this stage in their journey reflect a lot on their lives, and Iris is grateful to witness it all. “I’m there when a patient wants to share stories and advice. It’s an opportunity for me to learn.”
Iris always considers it a privilege to be a part of someone’s end-of-life journey. “It’s a really important and beautiful time. It’s rewarding.”
“At Horizon, I’m a part of something bigger. I’m proud to wear the purple.”
Annette Home Health Aide, Private Duty
Working as a Home Health Aide in Horizon’s Supportive Home Care program is a role that Annette says “goes beyond caregiving.” As a Private Duty Home Health Aide, she gives her undivided attention to one patient, over a longer period. “I spend time in their space, and experience how they live. I sense right away when something is wrong. Knowing someone so well takes my care to another level.”
Annette loves knowing that her coworkers are creating bonds and providing loving care just like she is, all over the community. “At Horizon, I’m a part of something bigger. I’m proud to wear the purple.”
“You’re never alone—everyone is so good about helping each other out. There’s a real sense of cohesion; I feel the camaraderie.”
Susan Homemaker Companion, Supportive Home Care
What does a Homemaker Companion do? “Make life better,” says Susan, who's been with Horizon for over four years. Whether it’s helping a patient with tasks so that they can continue to live independently in their own home, or even serving as a confidante with whom a patient can share their thoughts and feelings, Susan makes an impact on the job every day. And the best part is, she knows that the rest of the care team has her back. “You’re never alone—everyone is so good about helping each other out. There’s a real sense of cohesion,” she says, “and I feel the camaraderie.”
"I truly appreciate the undivided attention I can provide patients in a one-on-one home setting. You’re reaching someone who might not seek care otherwise.”
Margaret RN Case Manager Home Care
For Milwaukee RN Case Manager Margaret, working at Horizon Home Care & Hospice is a family affair. Her mom is a retired Horizon nurse, and her daughter is a current Horizon nurse. All three of them truly appreciate the undivided attention they can provide patients in a one-on-one home setting. “You’re reaching someone who might not seek care otherwise. And, without any distractions, we can work on a plan of care together.”
“Home care allows us the opportunity to work in so many diverse areas. The sky’s the limit in this profession.”
Keisha Home Care RN Clinical Supervisor
Keisha loves that her job doesn’t confine her to one location. “Home care allows us the opportunity to work in so many diverse areas. We are not pigeonholed into just the hospital—the sky’s the limit in this profession.”
While she’s out in the field, she makes a personal connection with every patient she sees, and leaves a lasting impression. “No matter how long it’s been, my patients remember me. They may or may not remember my name, but they remember my smile, touch…the fact that I cared for them. It’s a legacy that will live on long beyond my time with them.”
“Horizon offered flexibility to change my hours and position several times while obtaining my Master's in Nursing degree, to support my family and graduate on time.”
Erika Hospice and Palliative Nurse Practitioner at Horizon
It was always her dream to earn her Masters in the Science of Nursing and obtain her family nurse practitioner license, and working at Horizon helped her do just that. "I can say with 100% certainty that without Horizon as my employer, this would not have been possible. Horizon allowed me the flexibility to change my hours and position several times over the course of obtaining my degree to remain full-time to support my family and also graduate on time."
"Horizon recognizes that we all need work/life balance, and they work hard to help us achieve it."
“I can provide support when my patients and their families may not have that support elsewhere.”
Sean Medical Social Worker
According to Sean, the most enjoyable part of his job as a Medical Social Worker is the people, and getting to play a significant role in their lives. “I can provide support when my patients and their families may not have that support elsewhere.”
Sean worked in a different role for Horizon before joining the Social Work team. Experiencing different areas of the organization helped him see where he thrives. As a MSW, he visits patients in a variety of settings, rather than staying in one location all day. “A field-based job fits much better with my personality.”
“I love that I get to help so many people in their own home, and I'm proud of being able to make patients comfortable during their end-of-life journey.”
Mai See RN Visit Nurse Hospice
Many Horizon employees know firsthand what it’s like to have a loved one in home care or hospice. Mai See was inspired to pursue a career in healthcare after her grandfather passed. She has been a Horizon Hospice Visit Nurse for four years.
“I love that I get to help so many people in their own home,” she says, and she’s most proud of being able to make patients comfortable during their end-of-life journey.
Along the way, her supervisors and colleagues are her support system. “Horizon is like family.”
“I thrive on doing different things, and being out and about. That’s why, for me, Horizon was ‘meant to be’. I’ve never left, and never will.”
Coral Physical Therapist, Rehab
For Coral, being a Physical Therapist with Horizon means lifting people out of crisis in various ways. There’s the actual physical therapy and rehab, but there are also emotional support and preventive education components to her job that keep her interested and engaged. “I thrive on doing different things, and being out and about. That’s why, for me, Horizon was ‘meant to be’. I’ve never left, and never will.”
“As big as we are as a company, we still feel like a family. I really love helping my coworkers as much as I can.”
