Linda is a caring and compassionate individual who truly believes that her calling in life is to work with and assist the elderly and their families. Her previous experiences, including working with children for twenty years, have taught Linda numerous, invaluable lessons. In fact, it was working in the teaching arena that helped her discover that possessing patience and understanding is key to working in the nursing profession as a caregiver. She draws on theses past experiences to compliment her current position. Linda also believes that it is extremely important to take into account the family members who want to assist their elderly relatives. Due to the fact that there is typically no one around to help with respite care, Linda understands that family members can become easily burned out. This is why Linda came up with an idea to fill that void and give the family relief when elderly relatives need caregivers or traveling companions. While this should not be confused with traveling nurse companies, Linda instead created L’elite Homemaker and Companion Services, Inc. to give families peace of mind when traveling and to provide someone to assist the elderly when they simply cannot travel on their own.
In 2007, she moved to Collier County in Southwest Florida where she became a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA). She then went on to earn her Bachelor of Science degree in Business Management from the University of Phoenix. She received a Master Degree in Social Work from Barry University with a focus on Medical Social Worker and Crisis Intervention. Linda Elisca has been working as a Medical Social Worker in two different hospital in Ft. Myers and Naples, Florida as an Emergency Department Trauma Social worker and also as Care Manager.
After all of her past experiences and numerous qualifications, Linda believes herself and her company to be dependable, trustworthy, and understanding. She is also highly motivated toward developing her business, and aspires to make a difference. As a professional caregiver, Linda finds that being able to work with this segment of the population is very rewarding, and creating this business has provided her with a sense of accomplishment and happiness at being able to help others in this unique way.
