I am a graduate student working towards my Masters of Art in Gerontology at University of Southern California. I graduated with a B. A. in Human Development, Gerontology from East Bay University in 2018. As a current student I have all the latest research and evidence based programs available to me in order to help your elderly loved one lead a happy and fulfilled life. We learn about the psychological, biological and social aspects of aging and how to intervene in order to improve the life of the older person on so many levels. I am 60 years old, and I believe that my age, wisdom and ongoing education are all advantages that will help me to connect with your older relative, more so than a younger person may be able to. Ever since I was 20 and working in a nursing home I have had an affinity for the elderly. At the time it always saddened me that I was not allowed to spend much time with them, while bringing them treats at night. I just wanted to hold their hands and listen.
