November, 2021 - Earlene
At the tender age of 10, Earlene Guel became a family caregiver, a role she has never stopped embracing. “I realized I was blessed with such a great heart since I was young,” said Earlene, who has spent her past two years with Home Instead® of Louisville, Colorado, which serves Boulder and Broomfield Counties as well as northwest Adams County. “Eventually, being a family caregiver for so long made me realize I should do this kind of job for a living, and here I am,” said Earlene, the award-winning franchise’s CAREGiver of the Month for November.
Whether serving as a family caregiver or professional senior-care specialist, Earlene has experienced the roller coaster of emotions involved with serving others. She pointed out she has “lost countless numbers” of people in her life, but she knows they are in a better place. Earlene said, “Knowledge of that fact has helped me push through in my career because I learned so much and continue to do so no matter the situation. In addition to my Home Instead clients, I have many more family members to whom I have dedicated my love and heart.”
