Our elders deserve our respect and compassion! In my life I've had the pleasure of befriending many elderly folks. I'm a good listener who loves drawing people out and learning about their life journeys. When it's possible for them, I've witnessed how much seniors enjoy getting out of the house, whether it's to go shopping, eat out, or even just take a ride in the car. I was the primary caregiver for my grandmother during a lengthy decline before she died; among other things I managed her medications and accompanied her to all medical appointments. After she passed I remained friends with some of her friends, especially Billie , who lived to be 95.
My most recent job was 10+ years as a companion to a young woman with autism, so I understand the value of patience and empathy. I'm friendly, energetic, organized, and a good communicator who's also an exhibiting artist in the area. I'm currently single and live with my two cats. I'm an avid gardener during the growing season.
