I like and have experience interacting with elderly individuals and providing companion services. I have provided personal care, including bathing and dressing for a woman who was recovering from a heart attack. I am MAP and First Aid/CPR certified. I enjoy hearing about people's lives and fostering as much independence as possible. I play tolerable bridge and love learning about the world and different phenomena. Walking, gardening and reducing carbon footprint are some of my passions. I am respectful and appreciative and am seeking to work with someone with similar values. I am an excellent cook for food of all types.
