Hello! I would love the chance to help maintain the highest quality of life for your loved one as they age. I have a special place in my heart for the elderly as I spent time as a live-in care taker for my sweet grandmother who suffered from dementia and other chronic health conditions. I have experience with bathing/changing/dressing , medication management, scheduling/accompanying to al types of appointments, and assisting with errands, like grocery shopping . I have reliable transportation, and am a very tidy and organized person. I have nutrition education appropriate to support healthy food preparation, weight management and overall monitoring of chronic conditions (such as heart disease, diabetes, kidney disease, high blood pressure, obesity). On a professional level, I have over 5 years of experience working in a long term care facility as the sole clinical dietitian. I have been trained in Alzheimer's and dementia care, and am CPR/first aid.

Alisha cares so deeply for people in general, but especially seniors, who are often overlooked in our society. She wants them to enjoy their remaining years--living how they want to, but she also wants them to be healthy and live long, meaningful lives. She is extremely helpful & accommodating. She is the first to jump in and help friends and families at social gatherings. She is a wonderful listener, and has the biggest heart of anyone I've ever met. When she tries anything, she gives 100% and doesn't leave tasks unfinished. I'd trust her to care for my aging loved ones, and would trust her to take care of myself if I was unable to.
