Elara Caring Adds Hospice Care to Home Health Offerings in Tinley Park, Illinois
Elara Caring, one of the nation’s leading providers of home-based health care, has added hospice care to its offerings at its location in Tinley Park, Illinois. The expansion of services will enhance community access to expert, compassionate, personalized care for those facing life-limiting illness.
Tinley Park’s growth represents the company’s continued commitment to De Novo or “from the ground up” location expansions to its patient service footprint, with more planned in the future.
“Fundamental to our work at Elara is to expand access to services like hospice care, which are profoundly needed in Tinley Park, across Illinois and in communities all throughout the country,” said Joe Cramer, Hospice and Behavioral Health President of Elara Caring. “We are extremely proud of the work we’re doing to organically grow our services in support of this mission.”
While demand for home care has long been on the rise – driven by our aging population and a rise in complex health conditions – the pandemic significantly accelerated this trend, spurring individuals to opt for care outside of hospitals and other institutional settings. This shift has further elevated the importance of organizations like Elara Caring which meet the needs of patients and clients wherever they call home.
“Expanding our footprint at Tinley Park will have a critical care impact in our community,” said Gina Munao, Greater Chicago Hospice Branch Director for Elara Caring. “We remain grateful for the trust placed in us by our patients and clients, their families and our referral sources.”
The Tinley Park site celebrated its expansion on October 25th with an open house event and ribbon cutting at its 18501 Maple Creek Drive address. In addition to hospice care, it will continue providing skilled home health and personal care services, serving patients and clients in such counties as: Cook, Dupage, Will, Kendall and Grundy.
