I have hired Gina to help me care for my to in-laws in their 90s who both have dementia. She has been working with me for several months now and I find her to be knowledgeable, compassionate, and truly interested in listening to them and providing both what they need and want if she can. My father-in-law is a reluctant recipient of personal care though he needs it. Gina has patiently and respectfully (of both parents) worked with them until they trust her to take care of these needs. She knows that although they may not remember the particulars of disrespectful treatment, they will remember how they felt. She treats them with utmost respect and dignity. Together, at her suggestion, we have set up a way to track many things such as fluid intake, sleep/nap amounts, content of meals, meds, and general state of mind. This helps us find trends and take steps to improve their well being. She is an amazing resource for knowing what is available to provide them with the very best care possible. She also divides her time very well between cleaning the living area of my parents with providing companionship. In writing this I think back over all of the improvements she has helped me to make and the list goes on and on. She is communicative and for sure a problem-solver! I can highly recommend her to care for pets or people. She's great with our dogs and birds as well. She is professional and has good boundaries. And what a cleaner!! Our elderly living space does not smell like elderly people live here. Needless to say, I think, I don't worry at all when she's with them. I can go out and truly relax or take care of errands. You are not allowed to steal her from me! I write this review because I know my parents won't live forever... but for now they are in great hands.
