Making connections with others and sensing their needs comes naturally to me. In my career, connecting with people, especially seniors, has given me greater fulfillment and satisfaction than any other measure of success. In that way, care giving is more than a job to me. It is a calling to serve others and deepen my commitment to a joyful and compassionate life. Prior to becoming a caregiver and CNA, I was a licensed massage practitioner (LMP) in practice for 25 years. My years as a conscientious business owner further honed my customer service skills. I am an articulate communicator (English), reliabl e and trustworthy with strong organizational skills; warm and friendly, and have a knack for putting people at ease. As a trained CNA, I am skilled at performing the usual ADL's (activities of daily living) while preserving my client's dignity and sense of independence. I am available for errands, doctors appointments, and as a travel companion for special events. My small frame does not allow me to do transfers. I am a skilled scratch cook and enjoy the challenge of accommodating specific dietary needs without compromising flavor. Thank you for your consideration. I look forward to meeting you and learning more about your specific needs. Ellen Forgett, CNA Serving Shoreline, Edmonds, North Seattle, and surrounding communities. ... more

Licensed Massage Therapist

Self-employed

Jan 1991 - Jan 2017

My passion for people, healthcare, and problem solving was a perfect fit for my long and successful career as a massage therapist and business owner. I loved listening to my clients, assessing and meeting their needs, and sending them home relaxed and pain free. As a caregiver, in many ways, little has changed except now I care for them in the safety and comfort of their own home.
