Since 1997, Jill Adank has served the region through various positions within the scope of respiratory care. Her passion for practicing within the senior community however, came when she least expected it.
"At my previous position, I had worked with a senior living community through a partnership with a hospital. That was my first experience with seniors as a respiratory therapist" said Adank.
Adank serves as a newly added discipline to Life Care Centers of the Willows as their official registered respiratory therapist (RRT). She currently works between but not limited to three Life Care Facilities: Willows, Michigan City, and Hammond-Whiting. Ultimately, Jill provides continuing education to staff in the field of respiratory care. She also makes recommendations based on needs.
"I provide education based on individual needs", Adank said. "My main focus is prevention through education".
Jill's passion for respiratory initially began when her mother started having trouble breathing. "It was hard to watch my mother struggle to breath for no apparent reason. It started getting really expensive and she wasn't getting better", Adank said. "it was something that struck my interest because I needed to make sure I could help her. Respiratory began very close to the heart".
"I enjoy people" Adank said. "People have a lot to offer and I feel I can make a difference. I enjoy being able to help people and provide assistance. It's so rewarding. Every day is unique and I jump in where ever I'm needed", Adank said. My passion is truly the senior community. I feel blessed to have been chosen for this position".
In her free time, Adank enjoys camping and fishing with her husband of 27 years, two daughters, four grandchildren and their husbands. Another passion is for dogs, she has 3 and supports rescue organizations.
