How long have you been in Lincoln?
We’ve been in Lincoln over three years with hopes of our expansion office to be in Omaha by the 1st of 2020.
Who are the owners/important executives?
Grace Kats, RN/BSN is the director and Michelle Hill, AMA is the clinical intake coordinator. They work side by side running Graceful In-Home Healthcare.
Grace was born in Nigeria where her respect for elders was created at a young age. When she moved to Lincoln in 1999, she started working at Clark Jeary. She worked as a waiter in the dining room and got to know the elders on a personal level. It was at that point she decided to become more involved in their day-to-day life. Her CNA evolved into her nursing degree and her nursing degree evolved into Graceful In-Home Healthcare.
Michelle has been nursing for the past 21 years. She began as a means to provide for her family and worked her way up the ranks at Tabitha becoming the AMA charge nurse on the Solarium unit for Alzheimer patients. Her time at Tabitha also gave her several years of experience working with Hospice patients. Because of her experience, Michelle knows exactly what it takes to work with any client or potential client that walks through the door.
