Tabitha Receives Best of Grand Island Honors

Best of Grand Island

Tabitha, Nebraska’s industry-leading Senior Care provider, was voted Grand Island Independent’s annual best In-Home Care and runner up for Hospice Care by area residents. This is the fourth year in a row that both Tabitha services have been recognized at the top of these two categories. Tabitha Home Health and Hospice play an integral role in the lives of residents, especially in remote and/or underserved rural areas in the region as they serve clients wherever they call home.

Tabitha Home Health Care provides customized medical care as well as physical, occupational and speech therapies, medication management, personal care assistance and other medical services based on individual needs.

“To be honored by the friends and neighbors we care for and about is the greatest form of recognition,” said Tabitha Home Health Care Administrator Marci Whipple. “We understand the desire and importance of older adults remaining safe and independent in their own homes and are grateful for their strong support.”

Tabitha Hospice provides expert, compassionate care to those who have been diagnosed with a terminal illness. The program includes an interdisciplinary approach combining symptom control, pain management, personal care assistance, grief and bereavement support to clients and their families during and after the end-of-life journey.

Tabitha Hospice Administrator, Chris Wismer shared, “Tabitha is dedicated to providing exceptional care to Grand Island area Seniors and their families. It is an honor to be recognized as one of the top hospice providers in Hall County time and time again. We are Nebraska founded and based and are invested in the communities we serve as we work and live alongside those we serve.”
