My name is Jeannie Schmid. My calling to serve in the Adult Family Home / Long Term Care industry came to me Initially from my desire to stay at home after my daughter, Katie, was born. I left my job as an administrator in California when the Navy transferred my husband to Washington. Katie was bom shortly after we were settled in Washington and I opened a child daycare center to be able to work and stay home with our daughter.
I enjoyed that experience so much I began to explore larger housing options so that I might expand. During that search I received numerous suggestions and encouragement from family, friends, fellow church members and the community that my caregiving skills were needed in the Adult Family Home area.
After much prayer, I decided this was my path and have never regretted it. In addition to opening 3 Adult Family Homes, I am very active in the Adult Family Home arena in Olympia and throughout the State of Washington. Locally, I have served as the Vice President of the Kitsap Peninsula Adult Family Home Association as well as serving on the board for the AFHC (Adult Family Home Council) since 2001. I am committed to the Adult Family Home industry to provide the highest quality care through accredited education.
I love this profession and am grateful every day to be so fortunate as to make a difference to each person who comes into my life. I believe that just because you are unable to live at your own house any longer, doesn't mean you have to give up being at home. Being in a small home environment enables us to provide personalized care with lots of smiles and hugs. Family is so important and a home should be filled with laughter, family & friends. Once you move in you will never be alone again.
