Hear from Yvonne

Find fulfillment through a career as a senior caregiver with Home Instead

Yvonne joined the Home Instead team in 2019. Yvonne started with healthcare as a private aide when she was only 15. She worked with a elderly couple until she had her children. After the birth of her children - classes became available to become a nurse’s aide and she immediately jumped at the opportunity. She continued working as a nurse’s aide and then began to work in EMS. Later on, she transitioned to home care to go back to a calmer environment and be able to grow close knit relationships with her clients.

Home Instead allowed Yvonne to see how versatile healthcare truly is. “It was simply different from the structured system of a nursing home”, says Wirthwein. “Being a Care Professional allowed a more involved family dynamic to be developed. Not only did Home Instead allow one on one time, but visits turned out to be more than just a job to be done. The clients became like family..” Wirthwein continued about the office stating, “The office family is just as amazing as the clients. They work with you to help build a schedule that fits you with flexible hours. Overall, the company feels a lot more home-y than my previous positions.” 

As a Care Professional, Yvonne helps with the following skills: being a positive force in someone’s life, assisting with bathing & hygiene, helping with activities of daily living, preparing meals and snacks, performing light household tasks, listening and chatting, assisting with transportation needs, building professional relationships with her clients, and being observant for changes in her clients health and well being.  

Today, Yvonne is on our team as our Lead Care Professional. She takes care of her clients with phenomenal and experienced care, and the Home Instead Jasper team raves about her. She is an asset to our mission by educating future Care Professionals with hands-on training, helping in projects, and being an exemplified Care Professional.


Professional Caregiving Q&A

A: Every day is different, and I love that variety! One day I might be cooking lunch and playing cards with a client, and the next day I may be helping a different client. No matter what tasks I’m performing, I leave each shift with a deep sense of accomplishment.
