Central Vermont Home Health & Hospice (CVHHH) recently wecomed Jewelene Griffin, RN, to head its Hospice & Palliative Care Program. Jewelene, a Georgia native, has almost 20 years of experience working in for-profit hospice management.
Over the course of her career, Jewelene has served in operations and compliance oversight and in regional and national management roles serving both rural and urban markets. In her most recent position, Jewelene served as the Vice President of Hospice, managing 10 hospice agencies in five states.
Shortly after earning her Nursing license, Jewelene began working in hospice. “From the beginning, I have loved the one-on-one relationships that I am able to form with patients,” she says. “I feel it is a privilege, as a hospice provider, to be a part of a patient’s and family’s life and to be a member of the team wrapping individuals in compassionate care at the end of life.”
In her role at CVHHH, Jewelene looks forward to helping central Vermonters understand the benefits of hospice. “I want to help people understand what they don’t know about end of life care and to empower them to get the kind of care they want and need. I am passionate about dispelling common myths about hospice and helping patents and their families connect with resources when it’s right for them.”
Jewelene lives with her husband, a Waterbury native, in Pomfret.
