Jill Schmidt is employed as a Health Home Care Manager and oversees a large caseload throughout Cattaraugus County. Jill works in a professional manner with consumers and her interactions are always honest and direct, but allow for flexibility when it serves the individual needs of the person. Jill has a keen sense of understanding and awareness of the various psycho-physical-social needs of the individuals she serves and takes a genuine interest in improving their health. Jill has recently completed training on the NYS Eligibility Assessment, the NYS Community Mental Health Full Assessment and Plan of Care instruments which certifies her as a Home and Community Based (HCBS) assessor. Jill will be working closely with Managed Care Companies to finalize a person-centered Plan of Care which meets federal and state requirements. Bob Roth believes Jill has seized the HCBS assessor designation with vigor and resolve, and I am pleased to recognize Jill as someone who demonstrates outstanding service to the STEL agency.  Congratulations!
