Ellie Home Caring was named in honor of my mother Eleanor “Ellie” Deister who faithfully provided compassionate care to my father as his Alzheimer’s progressed.
As caring for him became increasingly difficult, Ellie realized she needed help but couldn’t find anyone she trusted enough to care the way she did. She kept Dad’s shirts freshly pressed, knew his favorite music and shared his joy of long walks while stopping to enjoy the daisies. She loved to sit and read to him while he enjoyed a cup of tea and his favorite cookie – a “Lorna Doone”. Eventually, Ellie gave more energy than she had available, and actually laid down her life for Dad.
Inspired by Ellie’s loving commitment, our family is continuing her legacy by sending out “Ellies” that understand what is important to you … even before you know to ask. We provide the peace of mind that comes from a loving, safe environment because we are committed to … “Care as special as your loved one”.
