Sam Vanini is a #HomeCareHero. Read his story.
Sam Vanini is a full time Physical Therapist in the eastern region of Monroe County.
He has been in home health care for a few years and is a high achiever. He won Rochester Regional Lifetime Care's rookie home health care clinician of the year during his first year. He is extremely personable, hardworking, kind, and caring. Sam covers a busy case load.
During the early stages of the COVID-19 pandemic, Lifetime Care supported the Rochester Regional Health system in many areas. When some clinicians were redeployed to assist other departments, including skilled nursing facilities, Sam stayed in home health care and absorbed multiple clinicians' caseloads. He ensured continuity of care for all of his patients and allowed a smooth transition for their care.
During recent months, Sam has worked with a few patients that were COVID-19-positive or under investigation as suspected of having the illness. He wore additional Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) and carefully followed all infection control guidelines.
Sam is an excellent home care therapist. He has maintained a positive attitude as he has worked through the challenges of the pandemic, allowing Rochester Regional Lifetime Care to maintain caseloads and timely care during this challenging time by going above and beyond for home care patients.
