Meet Northern Colorado's Best Care Team
Pat and l have been together for over twenty years, merging our two families. We have four adult children, their spouses, and eight grandchildren. Ln the past few years we have had the opportunity to help our elderly parents. The unexpected death of my father left my mom, at the age of seventy wee, with a working farm. We gave support to mom, in the selling of equipment, cattle, and farm. During this time Pat's dad started lo really decline and would not accept help. It was a very sad and difficult situation for both the adult children and the parent. After several car accidents, he was evaluated and was admitted to a memory care unit, where he passed away. It is a sad thing to watch an individual lose their health and independence. If he would have accepted his limitations, and the help of a caregiver, we felt he could have stayed in his home at least another year.
From a career perspective, I have had the opportunity to gain knowledge and experience in several different fields that have prepared me well for home care. In my early working years, I spent 7 years in a management capacity for a non-profit organization as a humane educator and as a director of a humane society. Changing fields, I went to work with General Nutrition Center here in Fort Collins, opened a new store in Great Falls, Montana and then oversaw the operation of several stores in the district. Exploring still another employment field, I worked with Mountain States Personnel as an employment counselor and then specifically as a personnel recruiter for the restaurant business. I then eventually became an office manager working with a team of recruiters.
Perhaps the field I really enjoyed the most, was the medical field. My formal training was as a medical assistant. As such, I have had a chance to work in both the clinical and administrative aspects of a pain management clinic.
We are thrilled to be able to bring the many skills, life experiences, our energy, and our passion, to help support individuals in their ability to keep their independence, and improve their quality of life.
