Allied Services Staff help to educate Care Workers throughout Pennsylvania

Allied Services Integrated Health System has been chosen by the Pennsylvania Homecare Association (PHA) to provide expert insights for free training videos designed to improve home-based care across the Commonwealth. Allied Services staff contributed to three separate training videos that will be available to professional caregivers on the website www.pahomecare.org under ‘My Learning Center’.

Stephanie Falvo, RD, from Allied Services Home Health and Denise Piepoli, RN, BSN, CDE, from Allied Services Skilled Nursing and Rehab Center offered advice on the importance of good nutrition for diabetics and the identification of dehydration. Allied Services Home Health has earned the HomeCare Elite™ award for six consecutive years, recognizing them as one of the top-performing home health agencies in the United States.

Linda Rotundo, a Direct Care Worker for Allied Services In-Home Services shared experiences that will be part of a training video on the role of Direct Care Workers for consumers receiving palliative hospice care at home. When asked about appearing in the video, Linda commented “If it helps another caregiver to do their job better, I’m happy to help.”

Allied Services provides in-home care in 22 counties in the commonwealth, offering services that promote independence and assist with activities of daily living for persons with disabilities and older adults.
