About Elgin

I STARTED CARE GIVING AT 16 FOR MY GRANDFATHER WHO WAS PARALYZED ON ONE SIDE. I DIDN'T WANT HIM TO HAVE TO GO TO A NURSING HOME. IT WAS THE SAME FOR MY FATHER AND MOTHER. I AM ALSO THE WIFE OF AN UPPER BILATERAL AMPUTEE AND FULLY UNDERSTAND DISABILITIES IN WAYS OTHERS MIGHT NOT. I BELIEVE ITS MY CALLING IN LIFE TO CARE FOR THOSE WHO WANT TO STAY IN THEIR OWN HOME BUT JUST NEED A LITTLE ASSISTANCE WITH DAILY LIVING ACTIVITIES. I LOVE HELPING OTHERS. I AM VERY PROUD TO BE OF SERVICE TO FOLKS WHO NEED ME.

I am a family oriented person as well as caregiver. Positive character with significant experience with seniors. I am extremely enthusiastic about my clients and the amazing field of care-giving in general. I do have a varied background in the care giving industry, as well as the medical industry in general. Being a more experienced caregiver I tend get along with my clients very well. Seniors have always been a soft spot for me. In the beginning of my training when I was a CNA I had the privilege of being trained in a physical therapy dept, so I am very familiar with safe transfer techniques as well as good body mechanics. Stacey has been a Senior Caregiver for approximately 9 years now, I just finished working with an Alzheimer's client until the first week in Sept. Helping him to adjust to moving into a facility where he required day and night care. My work experiences here in Texas have been AMAZING!! I look forward to MY NEXT ADVENTURE!! OH and I LOVE ANIMALS TOO! My experience has been and IS these critters are a very important part of my clients and my family as well!! Care-giving in ALL ASPECTS is a RICH RICH EXPERIENCE that I LOVE VERY MUCH!!!
