“We love the enthusiasm and energy from our
20 – 40 year old caregivers but we want to make this a school that helps and encourages everyone.”
Lois Etienne, RN; Co-Owner & Instructor
Co-owner Lois Etienne, an RN who worked almost ten years at Stevens Hospital's ICU, started Home Instead Senior Care, a WA State licensed Home Care Agency, in the greater Seattle area in 1996. She served on the Home Care Association of Washington's board for four years. She was the first President of the Washington Home Care Association, formed to give a voice to private duty agencies.
When the state voters decided to require that all home care caregivers needed to have the new 75 hour educational requirement designated as a Home Care Aide Certified, it changed the industry. We couldn’t draw the 40-65 year old women in to work like we had in the past. And many of the existing schools were too fast paced and demanding for most 60 year olds. So, we decided to start our own school, Professional Momentum Partners, so that we could hand hold people through the process if necessary.
Professional Momentum Partners, even though we’re a fairly new school, we are committed to helping folks move forward in their life’s choices. Caregiving can be a fulfilling career, as well as monetarily sufficient if your desire is to work almost full time. Let us be your partners, let us help keep you in a forward, upward motion towards a better life and career.
