I worked for Alive for four years before leaving to take care of my husband. Ten years later I returned after losing him. I love that I not only get to make sure that my patients are taken care of, but also that I can give patients and their families the experience that my husband and our family were not as fortunate to receive when losing him. We care as much for making sure the family is comfortable and being taken care of as we do the patients and I love that! – Lesley Yoho, Registered Nurse


I have worked at Alive for many years. The one thing that has kept me here is that over all those years, our mission has been the same. Care of our patients and their loved one is our top priority and has always been.Jill Cornwell, Director of Clinical Care
