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.
