Join us in congratulating Elsie, CAREGiver of the month! Elsie has been a CAREGiver with Home Instead Kelowna since July 2009.
I was born in Kelowna and lived here for most of my life. Having recently celebrated my 40th high school reunion, I am reminded of how quickly time goes by. I have three children (2 girls and a boy) and two granddaughters (ages 16 years, and 11 months). I enjoy spending time with them.
I found this job after my Mom passed away. I had been her home helper after my Dad passed away. This job seemed a good fit. I have been employed with HISC since July 2009. I graduated from Okanagan College in June 2010 as an RCA/HS worker. This extra training gave me more confidence in assisting clients. I enjoy helping clients with whatever their needs may be. I love to hear their life stories and their take on current events.
I am a homebody who enjoys reading, knitting, crocheting, watching movies (Netflix is a big time-waster) and walking for exercise. I have travelled to Hawaii and the Caribbean. I look forward to more trips in the future.
Every month, Home Instead Kelowna recognizes an outstanding CAREGiver for their dedication and excellent work.
Home Instead offers free monthly newsletters with tips and advice for caregivers of elderly loved ones.
