Story of Homewatch CareGivers of Evansville
Hello and welcome to our website! I am Michell Ellis, owner of the Homewatch CareGivers office here in Evansville, Indiana. We proudly serve people in need of our care not only in Evansville but surrounding areas as well.
I was born and raised on the Evansville area and studied Early Childhood Education at the University of Southern Indiana. I met my husband, Rick, while we both worked with Sterling Boiler, and we’ve been married for more than 29 years. We have two amazing son, Austin who is a deputy Sherriff and has been married to Emily for 4 years and Koltin who is a diesel mechanic in Hamilton, MI. Our family is very close and we love spending time together.
What brought me into the world of in-home care was an experience when I was teaching. One day I was asked to substitute for a special needs class. Little did I know then that one day of substitute teaching would create a lifelong passion! After working with children in special needs classes, I moved on to helping those living special needs in their own homes. Still, I knew I wanted to reach more people and offer the best and most compassionate care in Southern Indiana. I also knew that I could make a difference in the lives of not only those with special needs, but in the lives of seniors and others who might face challenges living independently.
I brought my beliefs that team members—caregivers and clients alike—should all be treated as family. Along the way, working with children, teens and adults, I’ve discovered that regardless of age or ability or background, all people want the same things: to feel special, safe, secure and most importantly, to feel appreciated. As we age, we all want to maintain our dignity, while living as independently as possible.
Because of my commitment to quality care, I require our team of caregivers to take training and development with the most current and effective training in the industry. Their education is on-going and allows them to not only provide compassionate care but also the highest quality care that comes only from understanding the challenges our clients face every day and knowing how best to help them thrive.
Our mission is to help our clients live safely in their homes, no matter what their circumstance is, while feeling cared for and appreciated. We are here to help your family navigate through any challenges and changes that might be a part of aging, illness and/or recovery.
