Vanessa’s Bio

Hi my name is Vanessa Durham owner of EldaCare Setvices for seniors. My back ground consists of attending Pierce College and getting my associates degree in business management. I than continued my education and attended Immaculata University in which I completed my BS degree. I work for Einstein Hospital in East Norriton Pa dealing with seniors who had Medicare and needed help with approvals with diabetic medication. I built personal relationships and I felt like I wanted to do more not only in my community but in my surrounding areas. Many Seniors need help not only with transportation but with other normal every day functions, housekeeping, meal preparation, errands runs, etc.
