Lake Oswego's Hein elected to PRO board
Lake Oswego resident Jane Hein, director, business engineering for Cambia Health Services, has been elected as a board member for Parkinsons Resources of Oregon (PRO). Her official board title is first vice president.
I am honored to serve on PROs board of directors in order to further Cambias community investment and involvement. But I selfishly do so to honor my father-in-law, Paul Hensgen, whom we lost recently to Parkinsons disease, Hein said. The meaningful work PRO provides the Parkinsons community extended all the way from Oregon to Florida. I was able to apply practical information, services and support for my in-laws during a very difficult time when my father-in-laws suffering from late-stage Parkinsons meant that living at home was no longer an option.
Hein said her in-laws in Florida found it very difficult to find information to help with her father-in-laws advanced Parkinsons, so she became a long-distance caregiver.
Thanks to PRO, Hein was given critical information that she shared with her in-laws, including questions to ask, treatment, care and physical therapy options to consider, and assistance with complex financial and medication management coordination. The quality of PROs education materials alone was invaluable, she said.JW_DISQUS_ADD_A_COMMENT
