A Massage Therapist for the past 13 years, Inga Jermaine brings a sincere understanding of people’s needs in relation to comfort and essential caring. She believes that a person is healthiest and happiest when they can live in their own home as they either enter into the later stages of life, recover from an injury/surgery or are living with a disability; she also believes that it can be an equally happy and healthy option to consider assisted living and/or memory care when the need arrives.
Inga’s own personal experience as the primary caregiver for her mom as she succumbed to breast cancer in February, 2009 as well as the experience of deep grief that followed, made her realize the importance of finding support and resources during these confusing and difficult times. This led her to pursue her Master’s of Business Administration in Health Care from Regis University graduating Summa Cum Laude in 2011 and then choose to purchase an Always Best Care Homecare and Assisted Living Placement business in the Boulder County area.
Roberta has extensive experience as a public school educator with an emphasis on working with students who have learning disabilities, as a leader of children’s and women’s ministry in her church for 25 years, as a private tutor, and as an office manager in an in-home health care agency. She is passionate about educating not only herself about the current changes in health care, but also about important issues facing the elderly in our culture today. She also believes in the development of strong training programs for caregivers, for an agency is only as strong as it’s weakest link, with education being the most effective change agent to promote success. Roberta’s educational background includes a Bachelor of Art in Communication from the University of Colorado in Boulder, and a Masters of Art in Education from the University of Phoenix. Prior to coming to Always Best Care, Roberta worked as a licensed social worker with the mentally disabled and chronically mentally ill and she has a love and expertise in working with those who suffer from any kind of cognitive impairment, especially Dementia and Alzheimer’s. Personally, she has been blessed to have the opportunity to help care for her mother of 88, who suffers from late stage Alzheimer’s. She is excited about overseeing the implementation of the new Medicaid acceptance for Always Best Care, as well as starting an Art Therapy group in Longmont.
