Rhonda Wehner joined Midwest CareCenter as Coordinator of Jewish Care Services in 2006. She educates others about hospice, palliative care and its benefits, as well as how our Jewish Care Services program can add another element of care to Jewish patients and families. The program works hand in hand with a person's hospice care team, offering Rabbinic presence if so desired, providing Jewish volunteers and guidance with understanding Jewish law with regard to medical care. "Being a teacher brings me great joy," Rhonda says, "and my role is all about teaching, whether it is our staff, the staff in the facilities we visit or—most importantly—teaching the members of the greater Jewish community about palliative care and hospice."
