Each month, we share the story of one of Humana’s employees who is caring for a loved one. Meet Scott, this month’s Humana Hero.
Scott Menne is a son, husband, father, soccer coach, Humana associate and a caregiver. He’s been with Humana for ten years and works as a consultant in provider analytics to look at data to make sure the doctors in Humana’s provider network are efficient and work for the best outcomes.
Menne’s experience as a caregiver began after his estranged father had emergency surgery in March 2014. “I didn’t think I could do it,” he said. Menne says he began managing his father’s life: paying bills, taxes, doctor’s appointments, cleaning the house. During his caregiver journey, Scott himself became ill.
“I let go of myself and things I needed and became what others needed.” He now manages his father’s care with his sister and wife as a team, each with unique roles. He cites communication and the ability to ask for help as one of the best ways for caregivers to manage. “I stretched myself beyond my normal comfort to play the role and it brings me comfort knowing I’m helping my dad,” he said.
