Meet Our New Board Member

Michele A. Boone, PT, NHA  of Columbia County started her career as a physical therapist in 1984 after graduating from the University of Scranton. In 1986, she opened her own physical therapy company, Valley Rehabilitation, specializing in providing rehabilitation services to residents in long-term care facilities and helping them to enjoy a better quality of life. That same year she became licensed as a Nursing Home Administrator.  Years later, Michele expanded on her passion for helping the residents of long-term care facilities by becoming the Nursing Home Administrator for her family’s business, Grandview Health Homes, Inc.

Michele grew up surrounded by the business after her parents bought a 15-bed nursing home facility when she was a young child. Michele’s fondest memories were of spending her holidays, birthdays and special occasions with the residents of the nursing home that she considered part of her own family. She developed a fondness for the many residents she called friends and decided that she wanted to give back and could do so through her work at Grandview.

Michele now spends her days running the Grandview business, along with her brother Michael, and helping to provide an environment for the residents and their families that they can proudly call home. She oversees a staff and helps to assure that residents are provided the highest quality of care in a safe, comfortable environment. Michele believes that these residents have taught her and her generation so much that it is important to give back just as much to them.

In addition to Grandview, Michele still provides physical, occupational and speech therapy services through Valley Rehabilitation, only now to younger children in school districts as well as long-term care facilities.

Michele is a member of the American Physical Therapy Association (APTA) and the Pennsylvania Department of Directors of Nursing Administrators (PADONA). In her free time, she loves the outdoors and enjoys camping, mountain biking and traveling. Michele resides in Stillwater, Columbia County.

Updated Health and Human Services Resource Guide
Now Available


An updated version of the state’s Health and Human Services Resource Guide is now online at www.health.state.pa.us under the Quick Links tab.

The guide summarizes information about available services and resources for all Pennsylvanians and provides contact information for more than 100 state programs.

“We remain committed to streamlining information about state programs and making our services easy for all residents to access,” said Governor Edward G. Rendell. “We hope this updated all-in-one guide helps Pennsylvanians, in all 67 counties, be healthy and live life to the fullest.”

Residents can find information about available services such as childcare options, immunization programs, medical assistance, obesity prevention and wellness, and the Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program, or LIHEAP.

The guide was first released in 2006 and mailed to nearly one million low-income households throughout the state. The updated guide is available online for download.

Pennsylvanians can also find information about the state’s social services at www.COMPASS.state.pa.us or by calling 1-800-692-7462 from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday – Friday or 9 a.m. – 3 p.m. on Saturday.
