I am a 53 year old retired speech pathologist who has worked for over 25 years with patients experiencing a variety of medical diagnosis and needs. I've had experience working in nursing homes, doing private care, care in individuals' homes, and private practice as well as home health care services. My primary area of specialty was speech language services, but I have supported elderly with Alzheimer/dementia/stroke with not only communication but self help skills; taking them to doctors appointment; cooking and socializing with them etc. I believe that each person, no matter what their disability deserves love and respect, especially at this time of their lives. I work with the individual and family to help provide the best, most respectful, peaceful, communicative life they can have now, where they are.
