Meet Jeanne

Hello! My name is Jeanne and I have 2 paid years as a caregiver but have had extensive experience with two family members with Alzheimer. I worked as a caregiver at Norwood Senior Network from 2016 to 2018. During this time I was assigned to 3 ladies with with a variety of difficulties for in-home assistance. 2 of them with health problems and the last one with dementia issues. My duties included assistance with dressing, bathing, hygiene, medication reminders, housekeeping, laundry, meal preparation, occasional shopping, and doing errands. For my clients with pets, I also provided pet care. I would provide standby assistance and help with walking. I would give companionship by talking and reminiscing with them. We enjoyed watching movies and TV together. We would discuss the news, play games, and work on puzzles. I believe my experience would make me an ideal in-home caregiver for families who need relief from the daily care of a loved one. I look forward to hearing from you.

Jeanne worked for my family before my aunt Judy was moved into hospice care for her heart condition. She is one of the most flexible and positive people I know. She was always someone I could rely on, whether it be staying a few extra hours, driving her to an appointment, making a great dinner, or doing some extra things around the house with Rocky (her pup). Jeanne had no problems with my aunt's desire for regular showers and served as a huge part in helping her feel like herself. They even took trips to local stores and the hair salon Judy loved. Jeanne had a way of finding the greatest old movies to stay in and watch on the days when she was more fatigued. She was supportive emotionally and physically (stand-by assistance). Right before the transition period to hospice, she helped us with a really difficult ER trip by running back home to take care of Rocky. We truly appreciate all she did for Judy and all she did for our family during a really difficult time.
