Employee Spotlight! Welcome to LifeCare Family!

We are excited to introduce two new members who recently joined our LifeCare family.

Jennifer Alvarez - Medical Administrative Coordinator

Jennifer Alvarez – Medical Administrative Coordinator

Meet Jennifer Alvarez

Jennifer joined LifeCare in December of 2018 in the role of the Medical Administrative Coordinator. She is the voice and face of LifeCare and the first person you talk to when you call us! Jennifer will play a key role in ensuring that the needs of our clients, patients, and employees are met while creating a positive and memorable experience.

Jennifer has worked in the healthcare industry since her first job as a Pharmacy Technician at Walgreens.
Since then she has seen all sides of the industry while working in a variety of roles at the hospital and the healthcare insurance company. Jennifer chose to join LifeCare because one of her passions is being able to help others, and she feels that she is in the right place to do that.

When Jennifer is not working and has some free time, she loves to read: “I don’t like to read e-books, I like to actually have the books in hand. So because of that I now have a closet that is just full of books.”



Kassandra Collins, Client Care Manager

Kassandra Collins – Client Care Manager

Meet Kassandra (Kassie) Collins

Kassie joined LifeCare in December in the role of the Client Care Manager. In her role, Kassie will work with our clients to help define and implement solutions for short and long term care needs.
Kassie says that she has always found herself drawn to the older community, “as they always have a story to tell, and just need someone to lend a listening ear. Elders in today’s society have so much history to reveal and so much depth to their lives, that I feel we owe it to them to simply listen, and advocate for those who can’t advocate for themselves.”

Kassie comes to LifeCare with an extensive experience working in home care, senior living and rehabilitation environment.
In her spare time, Kassie loves spending time with her feisty 6-year-old son: “He’s an adventurous kid who is always eager to try anything. We love being outdoors, traveling near and far, spending time with our family in Iowa, and doing any and all things sports related! ” Kassie says that It’s important to her that he grows up in a kind, loving environment that is family-centered, which is why she finds it imperative that they always tend to their elders, and those in need, as it’s almost inevitable that will all reach that time in our lives.

Walter & Jane Shekman, Owners

LifeCare was founded by a husband and wife team, Walter and Jane Shekman, in 2006, as a small home health care agency that focused on the medical care at home and catered to the needs of the local community. Ever since its inception, Walter and Jane have had a vision to create a new type of at-home care company: a company that bridges existing gaps in care by placing the client at the center and integrating providers and all available at-home care services around the client depending on the current need.

Since then, LifeCare has grown to become a recognized and trusted leader in the comprehensive post-acute care services at home amongst our clients, patients and healthcare providers in the Chicagoland area. By combining medical and supportive care at home with innovative technologies we are enabling our clients to live safer and happier lives in the comfort of their home.
