Ellen has a lifetime of experience with assisting the elderly. It began with her grandmother. As a little girl, Ellen would spend every available opportunity to sit with, talk to, question and listen to her grandmother. She would “help” her grandmother with her medication, and had much delight in hearing what every tablet was for. Ellen would brush her grandmother’s hair and do anything she could to help her. She just LOVED her grandmother so much!
These precious moments had such a profound effect on Ellen and set off a lifetime of supporting the elderly in any way she could.
After Ellen's grandmother passed away she started voluntary work in an aged care facility during her secondary school years. Since then Ellen has always been assisting an elderly person in one way or another.
The one thing Ellen has learned while visiting the elderly is that they need, crave, companionship. They, like all of us, need someone to talk to, someone who is interested in them personally. Although now doing virtual work, Ellen can still assist the elderly through phone conversations and advocacy work.
