Ellen Read


"33 years ago when my mother, Betty Read, founded Wisdom Eldercare, she had a vision and a mission as follows:
  • To provide superior care and services.
  • To maintain outstanding professional standards.
  • To provide care with compassion and respect for the dignity of each client.
  • To help each senior feel loved, valued, and important.
  • To also provide support and guidance for client's families.

I am proud to say that we have never deviated from my mother's mission. The integrity that was so important to her has remained intact. My mother is 93 years old and still remains active in Wisdom Eldercare."
