LEADERSHIP

Heather Hess

Written by: Sydney Clevenger

INTERIM DIRECTOR, SINAI IN-HOME CARE

Heather was recently tapped as interim director of Sinai In-Home Care. She joined Cedar Sinai Park eight years ago as a caregiver in the Harold Schnitzer Center for Living, and after a few years moved over to Sinai In-Home Care in 2019 as client care coordinator.

In 2022, Heather completed an intensive certification process to become a Positive Approach to Care (PAC) Certified Independent Trainer. She remains the only PAC-Certified trainer in the Portland-area. PAC is an organization founded by nationally-recognized dementia expert Teepa Snow, who has developed a widely-respected person-centered and engagement-driven philosophy designed to support those living with brain change in a more positive and respectful way.

To gain certification, Heather trained all of Sinai In-Home’s caregivers, so all In-Home staff now have advanced training in dementia care with consistent tools that set Cedar Sinai Park apart in the local senior living industry.

Heather has a bachelor of arts in early childhood development.
