BAYADA Hospice, a specialty of BAYADA Home Health Care, is proud to announce the appointment of Jeanne T. Comouche of South Burlington as hospice community liaison for its Burlington service office.
Comouche is responsible for educating the community about the benefits of hospice care and the comprehensive range of services BAYADA Hospice provides – not only for those at end-of-life but for the family and friends as well. BAYADA Hospice provides the highest quality end-of-life services so patients can remain at home with comfort, independence, and dignity.
Phyllis Tarbell, RN, BSN, director of BAYADA Hospice’s Burlington office, is thrilled to welcome Comouche to BAYADA. “Jeanne brings a wealth of experience and community relationships to her new position,” she said. “I’m confident that she will help us educate more people about how hospice can help, which will help us provide care to more people.”
Comouche has extensive experience serving the senior community. She is founder and president of Celebrating Seniors in Vermont, an innovative non-profit organization that provides fun and stimulating events for seniors. Prior to joining BAYADA, she worked for five years for Armistead Caregiver Services, first as a caregiver and then and outreach coordinator, where she organized activities in senior centers and residential communities, provided education regarding the services that Armistead offered, and built relationships through outreach efforts. Before working with seniors, Comouche spent more than a decade as an elementary school teacher.
“I was drawn to BAYADA because of its mission, values, professionalism, and commitment to quality,” Comouche said. “It’s a company that I am proud to work for, and I look forward to helping more people in Vermont understand the breadth of hospice services that are available to them.”
Comouche received a bachelor’s degree in elementary education from St. Michael’s College and a master’s degree in education from Southern New Hampshire University.
BAYADA Hospice provides hospice care to patients in Vermont and parts of New Hampshire, as well as in southeastern Pennsylvania.
