Story of Homewatch CareGivers of Evansville
Hello and welcome to our website! I’m Michell Ellis and I recently opened our Evansville location of Homewatch CareGivers, the premier Evansville home care agency. We proudly serve Evansville and the surrounding areas of Southern Indiana. I want you to find everything you need here. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
Keeping with our company’s guiding principle, of "letting our family care for yours," I’d like to tell you a little about mine. I was born and raised in 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 24 years. We have two amazing sons, 23-year-old Austin, who graduated from the University of Southern Indiana with a major in Industrial Supervision and Business, and 19-year-old Koltin, who is currently taking diesel mechanic courses at Wyotech, in Laramie, Wyoming. Our family is very close and we love spending time together, whether it’s taking long rides on our motorcycles, or going on tours of the many local wineries in Southern Indiana.
Many years ago, while substitute teaching, I was asked if I would mind subbing for a special needs class at the Chandler Elementary School. Little did I know that this one substitute job would create a lifelong passion. After working with children in special needs classes, I moved on to help those with special needs in their own homes. But I knew I wanted to reach a broader base and offer the best and most compassionate care possible in Southern Indiana. I also knew I could make a difference in the lives of not only those with special needs, but in the lives of seniors and anyone who might face challenges in their lives that required home-based care.
I’ve always felt passionate about providing the best care for my family, friends and clients. So when I decided to open my own business, I wanted a company that shares my beliefs – that team members, caregivers and clients alike, should all be treated as family. Homewatch CareGivers delivers on that promise. Since its founding more than 33 years ago, it continues to be the premier provider of home care worldwide. I am proud to represent the very first Homewatch CareGivers office in Southern Indiana.
Through my years of experience, working with many different people, including children, teens and adults, I feel I’ve discovered what most people want – to feel special, to feel safe and secure, and most importantly, to feel appreciated. As we age, we all want to maintain our dignity, while living as independently as possible. To provide these basic needs is the mission of Homewatch CareGivers of Evansville.
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 the highest quality of care that comes only from understanding the challenges our clients face every day, and knowing how best to help them thrive, despite their struggles.
Our mission is to help our clients live safely in their homes, no matter what their circumstance is, while knowing someone cares for and about them. We are here to help your family navigate through any challenges and changes that might be a part of aging, illness, and/or recovery.
