In 2013, I founded Transitions Care Management. Since then, we have been honored to work with hundreds of individuals and families in the great Pacific Northwest. Specializing in the complex medical cases, we offered a vast range of services including patient advocacy, medication management, in-home care support and coordination, resources, counseling, and more, to provide the best quality of life possible during challenging times.
But, I saw a need to offer more.
The complexity of some of our cases required a higher level of care, which we provided excellent resources to fulfill, including skilled nursing services like wound care, anti-coagulation management, ostomy care, and more. It was a natural progression to pursue our home health license to offer those service in-house and create a more comprehensive array of services resulting in a more streamlined continuity of care.
Transitions Home Health Services was founded in 2020 to expand services offered to our care management clients and with a recognized need for people to recover at home.
Stephanie is from the Pacific Northwest and has worked in the health care industry for 12+ years. She began her career as a caregiver and quickly discovered her passion for providing care for an aging population. It was a natural progression that she would attend nursing school, and now holds a Registered Nurse degree from Lake Washington Institute of Technology. Stephanie was honored to be chosen by her peers to give the graduation speech.
Stephanie began her care management career immediately after graduating from nursing school and in 2015 she received her CCM (Certified Case Manager) certification. In 2016, she received her Certified Aging in Place Specialist certificate.
She is a member in good standing of the Aging Life Care Association and co-chair of the local unit chapter.
Understanding the need for professional care management services for a quickly expanding aging population, Stephanie founded Transitions Home Health Services.
In her spare time, Stephanie enjoys photography, playing in the garden, and spending time with her family and pets.
Karly Dicky, RN, BSN- Nurse Care Manager/Director of Clinical Services
Karly found her love of geriatrics in high school while volunteering at a retirement community in her home town of Pasadena, CA. After graduating from Seattle University with her Bachelors of Science in Nursing, Karly began work at a local Seattle retirement community in their skilled nursing unit.
She soon discovered her love of caring for patients throughout the care continuum, including end of life. A few years and job promotions later, Karly found herself as the Resident Care Manager at the same community, overseeing their Assisted Living and Memory Support. She gained valuable skills along the way in care planning, Dementia care and preventive interventions that allow elders to age in place successfully.
Karly is excited to be joining the Transitions team and to put her skills to good use helping our clients make informed decisions about all aspects of their life, not just their living environment.
In her free time, Karly loves spending time outdoors traveling, sailing, or gardening with her husband and their dog Goose. Karly is also a foster parent with PAWS, caring for cats and kittens in need to help prepare them for adoption. If you are ever in need of adorable kitten pictures as a pick-me-up, just ask!
