My passion stems partly from just who I am. I have 2 master's in counseling, and love people. However, all my relatives live into their 90's and even 100's. I come from a very close-knit family and have cared for seniors and adults with dementia, Alzheimer's, and various special needs. I have prepared meals, acted as a companion, and managed medication, as well as light cleaning, shopping, Dr.'s appointments and light household management. In addition, I have an adult son who is on the autism spectrum. Experience has taught me that I do develop deep bonds with those I care for, coming to view them as close friends who I would do anything in my power for. I quickly learn any special care needs, and would be an asset in the care of your loved one. You could not have a warmer, more caring individual working for and with your loved one than me!
