Introducing Elaine Ellsworth, Des Moines Wellness Nurse

"I started at Wesley Terrace in 1982 as a NAC. I got my LPN license later that year and continued with Wesley until  2008 when I left and found that I missed Wesley Homes so much I came back in 2010. I like to think, I bring compassion and understanding to our residents with some of the problems they face.  Being older myself and the length of time I have worked here, it helps me to relate to some of the problems  the residents encounter during their daily routines. I try to help support the residents with the  transitions in their lives and the challenges they face. It is my goal to encourage our residents to take advantage of  the services we provide,  to help them retain a healthy, happy, extended life style here at Wesley Homes."
