EveryStep announced the appointment of Jessica Hellwege as regional director, who will be overseeing growth of the organization’s hospice, home care and palliative care programs serving Adams, Adair, Audubon, Cass, Clarke, Decatur, Fremont, Harrison, Madison, Mills, Montgomery, Page, Pottawattamie, Ringgold, Shelby, Taylor and Union counties.
Hellwege will provide guidance to several EveryStep leaders whose teams serve Iowans in their homes and in facilities. The regional director role, of which there are three in the EveryStep organization, was created as a way to strengthen, streamline and create synergies among the non-profit’s programs and services. Hellwege will also lead growth of the organization’s palliative care program as it expands to Creston.
Prior to joining EveryStep, Hellwege served in regional administrator positions with two other hospice providers, and she most recently served as a consultant in the long-term care and home care industries.
