What our Employees Say

Carlos

RN

I started my nursing career in 2010, at the time I did not know anything about hospice or palliative care. I can tell you now that working as a hospice nurse has been one of the best decisions I have made in my life — I wouldn’t change it in a million years. I have been very blessed to be able to care for my patients and family members throughout these difficult times during the end-of-life process. As a hospice nurse, I appreciate that being able to treat them as family is something that aligns with the Kaiser Permanente core values.

Becky

PT, Riverside

It’s humbling to be able to work with people during some of their toughest days. Being a home health physical therapist for Kaiser Permanente gives me opportunities to connect with members and their family to improve their mobility. It is a rewarding experience to be able to help someone improve their overall health at home.

Jennifer

PTA, Riverside

I’m proud to assist patients in a unique setting within Kaiser Permanente health care — at a patient’s home. I can work with them in their own environment to address their specific needs during their physical rehabilitation. Being a part of Kaiser Permanente’s home care rehab team that delivers the highest quality care and compassion is an honor and I look forward to the rest of my career here.

Ali

PT, San Diego

I love being a part of the dedicated team at KP Care at Home. We’re a home health agency that exemplifies the high-quality care our communities deserve. We pride ourselves on extending Kaiser Permanente's incredible care into the home and to optimize recovery in one's comfortable surroundings. As a caring and compassionate person, KP Care at Home has supported me in being the best for my patients.

Michelle

LVN

Having been in health care for over 17 years in the home care setting, one thing that stands out in working for KP Care at Home is the ability to grow within the team. I love being able to hone in and master your skills and building such a great support system with colleagues. Teamwork is what makes an entity function like a well-oiled machine, and I’m proud to say that we have that in this team.
