I come from a family who takes care of each other when we fall sick (short and long term) and our elderly. I have years of experience taking care of family members, including my own grandmother who lived with us until we lost her at the age of 87 due to various failing health issues, as well as my own mother whom we lost due to cancer. Most recently, I moved my husband's 88-year-old Grandmother in with us for a year until she could get on her feet and back into her own home after surgery. My mother was a registered nurse, and I grew up closely around the health-care field. My mother's passion was the elderly, and she passed that down to me. I enjoy helping and encouraging people. I enjoy going to bed at night feeling I made a difference in someone's life. While I don't have formal training, I especially love working with the elderly. I am patient, kind, empathetic, hard working, fun, and down to earth. I thrive in a field of work making others happy.
