Meet Brooke Schiltz
Just down the road from Carroll, in Breda, Iowa, resides new member of the Hospice of the Midwest family, Brooke Schiltz. Despite being new to the hospice field, Brooke’s hospice heart and dedication to helping patients at the end of life is already prevalent.
Brooke comes from a long line of healthcare workers and knew her calling in the field as early as high school. After receiving her CNA certification, Brooke began her career in caring for others as a high schooler, working at a local nursing home for two years. After working at a hospital in Des Moines and with a nursing agency for most of her career, Brooke has made the transition to Hospice of the Midwest in order to be closer to home.
Eager to begin her hospice career and serve the Carroll area, Brooke has a passion for keeping patients comfortable during their last days and assisting in lessening their pain. After hearing her fellow coworker, Barbara’s, praises about the hospice field, Brooke is also ready to learn from her peers and gain experience through hospice.
Brooke would urge those seeking hospice services to choose Hospice of the Midwest because of the dedication our nurses demonstrate. She explains,
“Our nurses will sit down and spend time with their patients, even after all their required tasks are finished. They truly care about the patients’ life experiences and always do more than just the bare minimum.”
If you or anyone you know is in need of hospice services in the Carroll area, please contact Hospice of the Midwest at (641) 332-3006.
