Yolanda’s Home begins with a family story.
In 1984, Yolanda worked with her father David N. Elliott to build a ranch-style private home on the corner of Triadelphia Mill Road and Highland Road (Rt. 216). When construction finished, Yolanda bought the house, made it fully-accessible, and has made it home for herself, her family, and several cohorts of seniors since 1985.
That means Yolanda’s Home might be the only assisted living facility in the state of Maryland that was literally built by the caregiver who owns and still runs it.
Yolanda began working with seniors at the Williamsport Sanitarium while a teenager at Highland View Academy. She gained additional experience through the Adventist Nurses Registry and, after college, at Montgomery General Hospital and through private-duty nursing.
Yolanda now has nearly 40 years of experience in geriatric care.
