About Our Team
manda Derington is the multi-faceted Director of Home Care for the Talem Home Care - Englewood office. She oversees every aspect of the agency’s day to day operations.
Amanda was born in Ohio but considers herself a native of Colorado, as she moved to the high desert before her 1st birthday. Amanda graduated from Green Mountain High School and then attended the University of Phoenix where she earned an associate degree in psychology.
Since 2002, Amanda has worked in different areas of the healthcare field. Her healthcare experience began when she was recruited as a CNA for a hospital in Littleton, CO. From there, she branched out learning all aspects of patient-centered care. Amanda also worked in acute care, travel nursing, home health, and has provided expert incarceration care. Over the last 5 years, she has found her greatest passion to be in the non-medical home care arena of Colorado.
In 2015 Amanda began her home care career with an office in Denver, where she managed and successfully grew a new up-and-coming office. After spending most of 2018 at another new office in Longmont, she joined the ranks of Talem Home Care, managing every aspect of the Englewood office.
Today, Amanda Derington resides in Littleton with her loving husband and 3 precious young children. She has a true passion caring for others and it has been the driving force in behind her making a difference in the lives of her family members to the strangers she meets in her day to day role.
Amanda grew up as a primary caregiver for both an aunt and uncle who were wheel-chair and bed bound from a very young age. After losing her grandmother in 2016 she dedicated her life to assisting seniors in their homes. Her primary goal is to help people stay in their own homes as long and as safely possible. Amanda also feels strongly about helping family caregivers get the support that they need to be able to be family, not just a caregiver, and how to successfully ward off “caregiver burnout.”
Talem Home Care is honored to have Amanda Derington as part of their dynamic team and truly appreciates her unique instrumental gifts, talents, and leadership abilities across the spectrum of healthcare—and what she brings to the table both personally and professionally each and every day!
