continued The Joubert family also noted the contributions of Inter-lakes Director of Activities Maria Waters, who has urged P.J. to retain faith and remain positive.
Before discharge, Cindy and P.J. met with his social worker, Heidi Schempp, and nurse manager, Jodie Ingleston, to plan for his return home.
“I truly felt supported and empowered,” Cindy said. “They provided us with all of the information regarding the resources that P.J. would need when he returned home.”
P.J. is now undergoing chemotherapy at Fletcher Allen Health Care. The relationship that Inter-Lakes Health has with FAHC allows him to have his lab work completed locally prior to making the trip to Burlington.
The Joubert family thanked all of the staff at Heritage Commons Residential Health Care for their support.
