Caregiver & Companionship
For the past 2 1/2 years I've been a respite caregiver for my 91-year-old mother with dementia at my sister's home in Annandale. More recently, I've also been providing the same services for my brother-in-law with Parkinson's. I've shared their ups and downs cognitively and physically, but it's been a pleasure to help them continue to do the things that give them joy.
My professional background has run the course from conservation projects in Latin America, insurance, and technical writing and translations. I hope to have the opportunity to meet with you and discuss how I can help with your needs.
