Meet Our TeamYour Trusted Aging Care Professionals.
One reason Allegiance stands out from our competitors is the experience and expertise of our Leadership Team. We are able to support and guide our clients with the combined knowledge base of over 50 years in the long term care industry.
Pam has spent almost fifteen years working in senior care including long term care facilities and home health care. Her higher education is in Social Work, and she has been credentialed as both a certified Geriatric Care Manager and Licensed Assisted Living Administrator.
She has spent years counseling seniors and their families and connecting them with the resources they need. Pam believe in a team approach, that it takes a “village” to promote the health and welfare of seniors in the community. In 2013 she opened Allegiance with the primary goal of providing support and guidance to seniors who want to age in place in their homes. Although she is a certified care manager, she focuses on the operations of her business and does not practice in that capacity. It is her belief that seniors should have a choice in where and how they want to live as they age and should be able to do so in a happy and healthy way!
Dr. Rahel Yirga

clinical assessment and a collaborative, holistic
approach to patient care. Experienced in hospital,
rehabilitation, nursing home and assisted living care, she was
drawn to the geriatric field because of her caring
personality and desire to help seniors achieve the
highest quality of life possible. She has been
providing direct home medical care since 2013,
enabling seniors to live independently by bringing
the care they need to the comfort of their own
homes. She is recognized by her patients for
being on the cutting edge of medicine and being
their “Guardian Angel.” She makes herself readily
accessible to meet the needs of her patients.
