My husband Dario and I have been married for 13 years. We have 2 children, Madison (17) and Lukas (13). I have always worked in a field where I was working with the elderly population. When I am not at work I enjoy spending time with my family and friends at our lake place in Devils Lake; we enjoy fishing, boat rides, and relaxing in the sun. My ultimate goal is to help elders age in place within their home environment. There is no better place than home. My elders will always be near and dear to my heart!

Roberta Hassett, Program Coordinator

My name is Roberta Hassett (Robbie) and I am the DD Program Coordinator at All Embracing Home Care. I started with All Embracing in June of 2023. It has been great transitioning into a role with such a positive and supportive team!

I strive to make sure that both our client care plans and services provided by care managers reflect All Embracing’s person centered and strength-based philosophy.

I was born and raised in Grand Forks, North Dakota. I am married and have a beautiful, blended family. My wife of over four years brought with her 3 amazing kids, 2 of whom are in High School and one who just turned 21. Together we have a 2-year-old and are expecting a baby in November 2023!

I went to the University of North Dakota and graduated with my BSW in 2019 and my MSW in 2021. I have experience working with many different populations.

My ideal work centers around working with vulnerable populations helping them to: improve their quality of life, execute their right to self-determination, and address injustices.
