Meet Niko

When my grandparents, who I cared for over the course of many years, passed away, I knew that I wanted to stay in senior care. It's so important for me to give back to my elders with time, care, companionship, and more. I have a good 4 years of experience working with Dementia and Alzheimer's patients. I also have experience dealing with clients who have Parkinson's and Lou Gehrig's disease. I have experience in taking vital signs, accomplishing G-Tube feeding, doing some light house keeping, making excellent meal prep, and keeping seniors alert and engaged. I'm passionate about making my clients as comfortable as they possibly can be, and enriching their lives in any way that I can.

Niko is an outstanding caregiver. In caring for my elderly parents, Niko has been able to manage complex needs including G-tube feeding and pump management, assistance with physical rehabilitation, and the challenges that dementia poses. Importantly, he has shown an ability and sincere dedication to interacting with them in a way that helps them to feel comfortable and well cared for.. so much so that my father (who ordinarily does not say much) enthusiastically volunteered that they think he is terrific. When Niko is with my parents, we not only have the relief of having help but the comfort of knowing that their quality of life is improved and what we hoped it could be despite their challenges. I would highly recommend Niko to anyone in caring for their loved ones.
