#47 | Denise Helms and Paige Wolk | Combating Senior Isolation




Overture Home Care knows what it feels like to be worried about a loved one and to want your family to be safe and secure while giving them as much independence as possible. We are joined today by Denise Helms and Paige Wolk.


Denise Helms, RN, BSN, CDP, has over twenty five years of experience as a Registered Nurse. Mrs. Helms began caring for the elderly as a volunteer candy striper at a nursing home while still in middle school. When she reached high school, she became a nursing assistant and worked as such through college. The next logical step was to pursue a degree in nursing.


Paige Wolk, LBSW, CDP, has over twenty years of experience in the Senior Care Industry. She began her career as a Social Worker in a skilled nursing facility working with elderly, and found her passion. Mrs. Wolk has been active in the Social Work community, earning such distinctions as Social Worker of the Year by the National Association of Social Workers and Social Worker of the Year by the Society for Social Work Leadership in Healthcare, Texas Chapter.
