I come with a background in nutrition, massage, mind/body work and holistic therapies. My experience with seniors includes 10 years of direct personal care and, in cases where there was no family nearby, I have coordinated the home care services for them. I will do shopping, drive people to medical & recreational appointments, prepare healthy meals, light housekeeping, give medications, assist in walking and bathing, care for pets, accompany them to the ER in emergencies, visit and act as an advocate when they have to be in rehabilitation centers. I feel that seniors often fall through the cracks of our system when they become physically and mentally unable to fend for themselves. It gives me great satisfaction to help make their lives as comfortable and interesting as possible, and to enable them to remain in their own homes.
