Jason Wu – President
I first became aware of the devastating effects of Alzheimer’s disease ten years ago when my grandmother was diagnosed with this disease. I saw firsthand how critical it was to have a loving family or caregiver to ensure my grandmother’s safety and daily well-being. My grandmother was fortunate enough to have close family members who cared for her as her Alzheimer’s disease progressed.
Since then, I have had a strong interest in helping and supporting our senior community as they age and are unable to care for themselves. Coming from a family of physicians, I am excited to be involved in the medical community by providing the highest levels of non-clinical in-home care to our clients and their families. With my work experience, I firmly believe that ApexCare can touch many lives and have a great impact on our local senior community.
Prior to joining ApexCare, I worked in a wide variety of industries and have owned multiple businesses ranging from construction to mortgage banking. Outside of work, I am an active youth soccer and basketball coach, having coached recreational soccer for over 8 years and elementary school basketball for over 4 years. I graduated with a BS in Economics from the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania and received a Masters of Management degree from the Kellogg Graduate School of Management at Northwestern University. My career has been focused on building great organizations that deliver the highest absolute levels of service to our clients. I look forward to continuing this passion with ApexCare.
Katie S. – Director of Client Relations
Growing up, I was lucky enough to have a very close relationship with my grandmother that helped shape my respect and admiration for seniors. Over time, she developed dementia, and I saw her go through various stages of care. That acted as my introduction to the field of senior care.
During my time in college, I had a challenging time trying to determine what area of the healthcare industry I wanted to focus on. When I was finally introduced to the Gerontology program, I knew I had found my calling. I graduated with my BS in Gerontology in 2005 and started my career in the industry working at an Adult Day Health Center where I worked for six years. I achieved my Certified Senior Advisor status in 2013.
Throughout my career I have seen how important it is for seniors and caregivers to have a strong support system and that is why I am thrilled to be a part of the ApexCare team.
Angela T. – Senior Care Coordinator
My love for the elderly started when I cared for my father-in-law, who suffered from Diabetes, dementia, and kidney failure. I was blessed again when I was able to care for my own father who suffered from CHF, a stroke, paralysis, and a feeding tube. During this time caring for my father-in-law and father, I was committed to giving them the most loving care possible.
Following this experience, I decided to become a professional caregiver. I worked for a few home care agencies in the Sacramento area for a period of 5 years. Although I truly enjoyed working as a caregiver, I was offered an opportunity to work as a Care Coordinator, which I eagerly accepted. This role was a wonderful opportunity for me to utilize my direct caregiving experience helping new caregivers and our older adult clients. Given my many years as a caregiver, I knew that this role would be a perfect fit for me.
I started working for ApexCare as a Care Coordinator in 2014 and I have truly enjoyed my time with the company. ApexCare is not just an agency. We are a family. I love coming to work every morning knowing that I am making a difference in the lives of our clients and caregivers. I am very proud to be a part of the ApexCare family and look forward to many years to come.
Irene Wu – Vice President
I have seen firsthand how quality care can make a huge impact on seniors’ lives. My grandfather, who is 100 years old, has been fortunate enough to have the same full-time caregiver for over five years now. His caregiver has become a part of our family and we are grateful that her compassionate care has truly enhanced my grandfather’s quality of life. Through ApexCare, my goal is to provide the highest level of care to clients just like my grandfather.
Prior to joining the ApexCare team, I graduated from UCLA with a BA in Business Economics and earned a Masters of Management from Northwestern University. I have worked in a variety of industries and companies, including Deloitte as a CPA and Hewlett Packard as a marketing and product manager. Most recently, I owned a lifelong learning business for six years in Sacramento. One of my strengths was finding the best instructors in the area and working with them to provide relevant and enriching classes to adult learners. I also enjoy volunteering at our children’s school and am currently President of the school’s Parent Association.
I look forward to bringing my experience and skills to ApexCare and making a difference in the lives of our clients!
April C. – Community Relations Manager
Ever since I can remember, I have always had a connection with people who were older than me. I truly enjoyed spending time with my grandparents. The things I remember the most were listening to their fascinating stories, playing games, and most importantly, learning valuable lessons from their experiences.
Given my passion for working with people, it is quite natural and logical that my career evolved and led me to working in the senior care industry. I found my first professional opportunities in the staffing and recruiting industry and ended up specializing in staffing for healthcare companies. I truly enjoyed this experience and believe that it positioned me well to understand the needs of our clients and referral partners.
After working in the healthcare staffing industry, I also worked as a Field Care Manager in the in-home care industry for 3 years. In this capacity, I provided customer service for seniors and their families, wrote care plans, and conducted quality assurance home visits among other things. Currently, I am honored to be working as the Client Service Manager for ApexCare, which provides me with opportunities to promote seniors’ health and independence.
Brenda J. – Staffing Manager
I have a great tenderness for the elderly which goes back to my childhood and the influences of not only grandparents, but great- and great-great grandparents. That influence has given me deep-rooted feelings of love and respect for the elderly. My affection and passion has continued as I have worked in the senior care field for over 15 years.
My background ranges from serving in the private sector (one-on-one within private homes), to facility experience in both Assisted Living and Memory Care as a Med Tech, to supervising caregivers at the in-home care agency level.
Having the background of personally caring for and interacting with seniors has given me insight to understand care needs as well as personality differences between our Home Care Aides and clients, and the importance of making a good match. I am proud to be a part of ApexCare, the premier home care agency of this area, and look forward to serving the needs of our Home Care Aides and clients for many years to come.
