Detroit, January 13, 2016 – Hospice of Michigan has promoted Mindy Talbert to statewide program manager of At Home Choices™, one of the organization’s palliative care programs.
In her new role, Talbert will manage a team of eight nurses while overseeing care for more than 300 patients currently enrolled in the At Home program. The palliative care program is available in 58 counties across the Lower Peninsula.
At Home Choices is one of a suite of advanced illness management programs developed by HOM to improve care, reduce costs and allow patients to remain in their homes for as long as possible. While not yet eligible for hospice, patients referred to the program have serious, life-limiting illnesses that would benefit from pain and symptom management and other palliative care services.
Talbert joined HOM in 2014 as a hospice registered nurse. In April 2015, she began working with the organization’s At Home Choices team, serving as an RN case manager and also focusing on program development.
Talbert has spent more than 15 years in the nursing field and has focused on palliative and hospice care for more than four years. Prior to joining HOM, she was a home hospice RN and case manager for Beaumont Health Systems.
Talbert holds a bachelor’s degree in nursing from Western Michigan University. She currently resides in South Lyon.
