To help seniors and the disabled experience the best quality of life possible. Being less able does not make one a second-class citizen, and should not sentence one to an insular, home-bound life without any joy or companionship. I enjoy seeing my clients being able to retain, or in some cases, obtain the freedom to go on outings, etc., and become as much a part of society as is possible within their individual limitations. I like engaging clients in conversation, playing card games, board games, chess, etc.; activities which stimulate the brain or encourage physical dexterity are great confidence builders, and mood-elevators. I like to keep a tidy house, and I'm pet-friendly; having three cats and four small dogs of my own means that I'm very comfortable around animals. I'm adaptable and trainable, and try to take the unexpected with a liberal dose of humor. Some clients may prefer more attention from me than others, and I try to be respectful of their wishes; we all need alone time from time to time. However, I have the capability to turn my back while keeping my ears open for problems. In summary, I believe in helping out as much or as little as the client thinks they need, while ensuring their overall safety and well-being. I do have a fully insured new six-passenger insured/licensed van for use with client for outings and errands.
