About Maryellen

I am a lifetime caregiver, as I am the second of nine children. Caring for others is at my core. Of course helping out with younger siblings was a part of every day routine. However, I realized my passion early in life while visiting and listening to 3 elderly aunts, all sisters, who lived together. Fortunate to spend time with my aunts as a young girl, I realized early on that I truly enjoyed their company. Helping to care for them as they aged together ignited a passion for caring for the elderly that has been fanned by each senior's life story I have been privileged to hear. I spent 5 years in an emergency room as a medical tech. This allowed me to spend time with many age groups at a very stressful time. I especially enjoyed providing comfort and guidance to seniors and their families in my role. I cared for my own mother who was diagnosed with Alzheimer's for close to 12 years. After my mom passed, I was contacted by a family in MA whose Mother was suffering similarly. I was privileged to care for their mother for just over a year, when the family determined it was in her best interest to have facility-based care.
