About Our Staff
Jessica Fairbanks – Client Care Manager / Owner
What started as a part-time medical receptionist job at a durable medical company over 10 years ago turned into a love for the industry. After receiving my degree in medical billing, I landed at NuCara, which exposed me to the vast area of pharmacy. All these experiences have fueled my desire to help people stay independent in their homes.
Sara Wegmann – Employee Care Manager
I’m incredibly excited to join the Homecare Assistance team, as I love helping people. I have discovered a true passion for my elderly cliental in real estate, and am excited to further assist some of that older generation with even more detail assistance. I also love working with providers and family members, who are making decisions for this elderly generation. I love the loyalty that can be found with this more seasoned generation, and love knowing this company will give comfort to families knowing their loved one will be personally cared for, just like family. I have a very close relationship with my grandmother and love knowing that I will give care to other families, just as I would expect for my own grandmother.
I also, love knowing we as a community and business, will be providing a service to the healthcare industry which will provide a win-win option. When older patients have medical needs, most of the time they desire to recover and be at home. Homecare Assistance will give patients the ability to recover and enjoy the comfort of their home, sometimes during some vital resting and recovering times. In turn, Homecare Assistance will have an opportunity to save our healthcare industry, a substantial amount of money by avoiding extended hospital stays, for patients who truly desire to recover at their home.
I’m also excited to influence provider motivation and create a true sense of purpose in their job, including job satisfaction. I believe employees who feel appreciated and are making a true difference in their careers, have a more loyal attitude towards their employers, such as Homecare Assistance. I have always loved encouraging people, and would love the opportunity to become a team leader, not only thru title, but MOSTLY thru example. These employees are truly the ‘salt of the earth’ and need to know, their impact is much greater than any paycheck amount. J
Erin Wilmot – Employee Care Manager
Hi, my name is Erin Wilmot and I am an Employee Care Manager with Home Care Assistance. My job consists of hiring new employees and scheduling current employees. I am truly excited about taking on more roles as this company continues to grow. I have worked other jobs outside this profession chasing the almighty dollar, but my heart keeps me on this career path because senior home care truly is my passion. I think our field is exciting and full of compassion, and seeing how we can put a smile on someone’s face while helping with the simplest of challenges in life is the reason I choose to continue to do this. I have worked in this field over the last 14 years for Country View as a caregiver, Goodwill in various roles, including job coach, one-on-ones, and house manager, and Serving Hands as a manager. I was born and raised in a small town where my parents instilled in me the importance of hard work and trustworthiness. My family is very important to me, but especially my two teenage boys Landen and Aedin, who are my life. I guess we can’t forget about our dog Stanley Brown either. One of my favorite things is hanging out with my family up at the lake on the pontoon.
