About Ellen

It has been my privilege to lovingly care for elderly people with dementia, starting with my mother-in-law. I enjoy entering their world and showing them the dignity, respect and gentle care our elders should have. I have become the trusted companion of each person I’ve cared for, and have served several of them for years at a time. Support for the family of the person I am companion to is a special part of my ministry. I am currently a part-time seminary student and simply love people. My desire is to bring joy and wisdom in caregiving to those I serve.

family of persons cared for
All of my caregiving has been with dear people who are older and have dementia. A number of my caregiving assignments have lasted for multiple years. The first woman I cared for the last 4 years of her life. I was with another woman for over 2 years. I cared for another woman the last 2 1/3 years of her life. Currently, I am caring for a couple part-time; the gentleman has dementia. I am a researcher, and have learned much from gerontologists, social workers, nurses, hospice nurses and other staff, books, videos offered by the county department of aging, and communities of caregivers. While I don't have formal credentials, I helped coordinate care for one woman, and trained other caregivers.

Is my belief that EMPATHY is the #1 core characteristic I have because I totally can put myself in the place of who I am caring for. I am a dependable and reliable caregiver. I have 2 years of experience on dementia patient. I am able to communicate effectively and make my client feel respected. I like to think of ways to ease tense moments when client is resistant to care. Responsibility and punctuality identify me. A plus is SPANISH as a native language. I want to make a difference in the lives of those in my care.
