Meet Asta

I have been providing in-home caregiver services since 2002. I have cared for elderly people with moderate to severe medical conditions such as Parkinson's, Alzheimer's disease, ALS (Lou Gehrig's disease), diabetes, heart conditions, dementia, patients recovering after surgery and under hospice care. My medical background and excellent command of spoken and written English give me confidence in handling the demands and challenges of in-home care. Years of experience allow me to adapt quickly to specifics of a new case and to help the client and family members to work out a desired care plan that would encompass recommendations of medical professionals and the client's personal preferences. In addition to providing assistance with activities of daily living, serving as client's home care advocate is a very important aspect of my job as a caregiver something that I take pride in.

Asta was my mother's primary caregiver for the last four years of her life. She is very organized and helped greatly with coordinating my mother's household and care needs between herself and two weekend caregivers. She is a great communicator and kept all medications organized, accompanied my mother to medical visits and developed logs for all of my mother's health care needs. She cooked nutritious meals following the dietician's guidelines, kept the house clean and sanitary and made sure that my mother, who had limited mobility, walked every day. She was very flexible, adapting to my mother's ever increasing care needs as her dementia progressed, and made sure that the other caregivers were always briefed on new developments. She is meticulous and is very concerned to provide the utmost in care.
