Eilis Minogue-Rose

Care Coordinator

Eilis and her family are newer to Fort Collins, having moved here in September 2020 from Maryland.  Having a love for the outdoors and for family, she enjoys anything from hiking to family game night on her spare time.  Growing up Eilis lived between Ireland, the US Virgin Island (St. Thomas) and Connecticut, which made for an exciting childhood.  As she entered her teenager years, her family settled down in Maryland to be near her grandparents. This is where her love for patient care began, as she spent her summers working with her grandmother who was a prominent doctor in Maryland and her mom who was a Registered Nurse. She loved getting to know each patient and helping them to receive the best care possible. Eilis has worked in several areas of medicine, from managing a veterinary clinic at the young age of 18yrs old, working at the hospital or outpatient lab as a certified phlebotomist, to now being at Talem Home Care of Fort Collins, she has loved every step along the way. She has a loving/caring heart and landed on Home Care due to letting people stay in the comfort of their own home. Eilis looks forward to continuing her education and knowledge in the home care field, and helping as many people as we can.
