For 14 years, HomeCare Elite has annually identified the top 25 percent of Medicare-certified agencies and highlighted the top 100 and top 500 agencies overall.
HomeCare Elite agencies are determined by an analysis of performance measures in quality outcomes, best practices implementation, patient experience (HHCAHPS), quality improvement and consistency, and financial health. In order to be considered, an agency must be Medicare-certified and have data for at least three outcomes in Home Health Compare.
The ranking is developed by ABILITY® Network, a leading information technology company helping providers and payers simplify the administrative and clinical complexities of healthcare. It is sponsored by DecisionHealth, part of the H3.Group.

Jeff Kloer, Rehab Director
It is with bittersweet tears that we say goodbye to Jeff
Kloer today. Jeff has been successfully directing our rehab department for the
last three years. Two years prior, he joined our Physical Therapy Team when the
department only consisted of two other Therapists. With Jeff’s efforts, he expanded
our Therapy Team to include Speech Therapy and Occupational Therapy. As a
result, our Rehab department has grown from 3 to 12 Therapists! Which means,
month after month, year after year, our Therapy team has been caring for a
growing number of patients from our Taos Community and neighbors.
When asked about his Physical Therapy work, Jeff said that overcoming the challenges were rewarding and that he felt fortunate to meet and treat so many genuine and kind patients. They will always have a soft spot in his heart. As will you Jeff, always have a place in our hearts.
When a wind from Clovis whispered in Jeff’s ear about a new opportunity to develop a rehab program for treating pilot fatigue on Cannon Air Force Base, Jeff couldn’t resist. Packing up his moto-bike and leaving the wind to the dust, Jeff leaves Taos better than he found it. We’ll see you again Jeff, in Clovis, New Mexico!
Grief, Gratitude, and the Holiday Blues
Thanksgiving, Christmas, Chanukah, Easter and Passover. Holidays are associated with laughter and fun, celebration as well as reflection, times to spend with family and dear friends. For many of us they’re also associated with sorrow, grief, loneliness and stress. Add the death of a dear friend or family member to the mix and holidays can be harrowing.
Grief is a response to the love that existed and still exists between us and those who have gone on before us. Grief and love go hand in hand. Why pretend we’re not sad? Why pretend we don’t miss them?
When someone special dies our world might seem to crumble, and the demands of the holiday can heighten our sorrow. Celebrating when a loved one has died can feel like betrayal; as if enjoying life without them means we’ve forgotten them. But we haven’t. We can mix our grief with gratitude for those who’ve been in our lives and be reminded that life continues to offer goodness and blessings.
What can we do? How can we celebrate the holidays when we’re missing our loved one?
Consider these ideas. Then pick some things to do that seem authentic to you and your family –
Laugh when it’s time to laugh. Cry when tears are needed
Talk about them and the times you shared.
Make their favorite food. Their favorite food is sometimes banished from the holiday meal. Instead, eat it and enjoy it! Or laugh over the fact that it’s the one food you never did like very much.
Light a candle, say their name or say a prayer for them
Try continuing their favorite holiday activity
Dedicate a decoration on the Christmas tree in their honor
Decorate their grave site
If you scattered them to the winds, or a river […]

Say “Hello!” to Kayla Nichols, Mountain Home Health Care’s first Intern from UNM-Taos.
In my various administrative roles with MHHC over the last 18 months, especially those involving staff recruitment, I felt there was an opportunity to better prepare those in our community for the workforce, especially in an administrative office setting. I sat down with a small committee to design an internship program for our Agency and then met with UNM-Taos’s Career Development Facilitator to coordinate this inaugural program. The overall purpose of this internship, in addition to readying students for the administrative workforce, is to also give those with little or no prior office-related employment the experience that many companies require. Upon successful completion of the internship program, each student will have an administrative experience to list on their resume and a letter of recommendation for future employment. Students will also gain the experience of working with a community-related non-profit in the home health industry. Each internship is tailored to the student’s school and activities schedule and runs approximately the length of a UNM-Taos semester. The length of the program allows us to prepare a number of students each year for the workforce.
Although our current internship is filled we can always review applicants for the following semester’s program. Applicants must be current UNM-Taos students with a minimum GPA of 3.0. Internship hours are paid and the schedule is flexible. For more information, contact Nat at (575) 758-4786 or inquire through the Career Services at UNM-Taos.
