ABOUT ME

Carrie Velliquette, CDP, CADDCT

I began my career in health care over 17 years ago, but my passion for seniors began with my grandparents. I was fortunate enough to spend a wonderful amount of time with all of my grandparents not only from an early age, but into my adult life. I gained an understanding of the importance of being able to age gracefully and independently, reinforcing to me how crucial it is to treat each senior as an adult and an active participant in their own care.

My paternal grandmother suffered from Alzheimer's—and while at the time I did not fully understand the extent of her care and needs, it was truly the foundation for a future of helping and advocating for those with dementia and Alzheimer's.

TAKING THE HELM

Helm began with a vision of providing customized, hands-on life and care management for individuals and their caregivers. As an Executive Director in senior living for over 15 years, I have extensive experience helping others navigate every aspect of aging. It is my passion to treat seniors as individuals, and with this in mind to facilitate and support each person as they take the helm in their own care or allow me to take the helm on their behalf. Whether this means assisting an independent senior or as a caregiver and advocate, my number one priority is treating each client with dignity, respect, and services individualized to their needs.
