I came to value time with and care for seniors through regular volunteering at a nursing home and hospice care facility with my trained therapy dog, Francis. As a writer and a part-time nonprofit consultant, my career has focused on serving vulnerable populations and I have had the privilege to bring dignity and respect to elders in diverse professional and service settings. I also grew up visiting my grandpa in a nursing home where he was treated for over a decade due to early onset Parkinson's disease. Watching his decline and then my grandmother's inability to live on without him was heartbreaking and touching and an experience I felt privileged to witness. They were brilliant and exceptional people who lived fascinating lives. I was inspired to volunteer at a nursing home and hospice with my service dog out of gratitude for the compassionate and dignified care that both my grandparents received in the sunset of their lives. I believe that I possess the maturity and perspective necessary to provide the sort of care I would want for the elders in my own family, and I believe there is much beauty and wisdom that elders can offer the loved ones and caregivers in their lives. I have a bright spirit and hope to bring vitality to those whose care I might be privileged to provide.
