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.
