Hello, I'm Ethel. I have worked in healthcare for over 20 years. I've worked in nursing homes and retirement homes. For the last 3 years I've been working privately in homes of families that hired me from references of friends of other families. I chose to work with dementia and Alzheimer's clients because that is who I've cared for so many years in facilities. I also have a patient and gentle understanding with Alzheimer's and dementia because it ran so close to my heart, my grandmother. Back then when I was growing up there's wasn't a name for these this illness so many suffer from. This is my calling in life. I have several letters of recommendations and contacts from families of the loved ones over time. I'm also a dietary cook and that is my second passion. I give showers, do hair-care, dress, groom. After my client is taken care of, l cook, clean, do laundry and make everything as comfortable as possible ( errands). I love caring for anyone that needs me.
