Meet the A -Team

"What we know matters, but who we are matters more."   

Brene Brown 

Our TEAM consists of nursing assistants, all who are licensed by the state of Washington,

have completed extensive state and national background checks, and hold certifications in Emergency First Aid/CPR, Food Handling, Nurse Delegation, Diabetes Management, Fundamentals of Caregiving, Mental Health, Dementia Care, Traumatic Brain Injury and support of people living with Intellectual Disabilities.

 

Proudly serving our community with over 130 years of collective experience!

"It is an honor to be so involved towards the care needs of the two most important women in my life - as they have been there every step of the way in mine. When the news was shared that my mom would thrive best in an intimate care environment, we couldn't locate anything that met our standards... hence, we created Adkinson Estates! My vision is to offer a safe and supportive setting that helps people living with differently abled abilities or disease flourish by receiving progressive care approaches from healthy-minded staff, stimulating life enrichment options and cohesive camaraderie that enhances the quality-of-life experience for all who are involved."

"For me, becoming a caregiver meant being able to step in and lend a hand when needed. I am not the kind of person who can sit on the sidelines and watch someone in need struggle."

Sabrina, NAC

Serving our elders & individuals living with disabilities since 1999

"I like caregiving because I want to help people who can't help themselves in certain areas - no matter the reason, whether it be family, disability, age - at the end of the day, it makes me feel good knowing I helped change somebody’s day for the better. 

 Nobody should ever feel alone - no matter what stage in life they are in!"

"Caregiving is by far one of the most rewarding paths I have taken in life. The feeling of being able to help improve the quality of someone’s life is very important to me. I have proudly worked in various roles with all ages and needs; ultimately finding my passion with the senior community - I feel seniors have so much to teach and I am eager to listen and learn.

So, for me caregiving is a lifelong passion that I will forever cherish."

"I love being able to make an impact - just one act of kindness can make their whole day. And be there for them (residents) like they were your own parents or grandparents - laughing is awesome!"

Katie, HCA 

Serving our elders & individuals living with disabilities since 2009

"At first, getting into the caregiving field was just for a paycheck. That quickly changed for me when I realized how fulfilling this "job" is - I have received such a gift in helping others live their best lives."

Sarg & Bart are Pomskie (Pomeranian - Husky) brothers

born in 2019 and their little sister, Tinker "Tink" Belle,

a Pomeranian,  joined the crew in 2023. 

 

They come by to visit about once or twice a week and LOVE attention from our residents, staff - and of course - lots of treats! 

Friendly reminder we LOVE when pets come to visit and are required by DSHS to obtain a copy of their updated vaccines! 

       

"We love the residents and A-Team at Adkinson Estates!"
