I grew up in Virginia with a mother who cared for her mother-in-law, my grandmother, in our home. She was also a hospice nurse and later a school nurse, all while raising 5 daughters. She was a shining example of what it means to care for others. While raising 3 children, I worked at an audiology practice where I truly discovered my passion for caring for the older population. I love their life stories, their experiences and being able to "stand in the gap" to meet their care needs when family is not available or just needs a break. I have 7+ years experience with folks with dementia, have training in CPR and first aid and can help with the following needs: medication management, meal preparation, light cleaning, transportation, bathing and dressing and being a fun companion.
I look forward to speaking with you regarding your loved one and how my experience and skills can meet your needs.
