Health care accounts for 30 percent of jobs created in west central Minnesota over past decade
WILLMAR — When Bev Werder started her own business, Compassionate Care, in 2002, she had just one employee — herself.
Now she has 60 full- and part-time staff who provide daily help and companionship to older adults living in their own homes. Five years ago she expanded by opening Compassionate Cottage, a board and care facility with services and all the comforts of home for her aging clients.
“It’s what I love to do, and it just evolved from there,” says Werder.
