For nearly 8 years, I gave personal care to my father who had dementia. For 7+ years, I worked at Hope Haven Adult Home in Virginia Beach, VA as Activity Director, providing hours of fun and activities, plus, many one-on-one companionship experiences. I loved my residents and they loved me. They even pooled their money and presented me with a beautiful wood plaque of appreciation which is proudly displayed in my home. I have many references. I worked approximately 8 years for Central Union Mission in Washington, DC. One of my many hats was a program for seniors in the community. I was a caregiver for 2 families in SC and presently serve a wonderful couple 1-2 times a week locally and a very sweet lady with dementia twice a week. I have a heart to serve especially the senior population. Even though I'm a senior myself, I'm a "young" healthy senior and will make a great companion and friend for you or your loved one. I love pets, crafts and games. I'm CPR/AED certified.
