Meet Sarah

I'm an Occupational Therapist currently looking for a change of pace while providing quality, individualized care for your loved one. Since graduating with my Master's Degree in OT, I have provided care for the adult/geriatric community working in both home health care and skilled nursing facility/rehab settings. With all the recent craziness in our city/country, I've come to realize the value of companionship more than ever; I'm seeking this change in professional setting in order to be able to focus less on paperwork and more on providing an individual/family with a better quality of life. This includes but is not limited to: assistance with activities of daily living (bathing, dressing, feeding), functional mobility, and engagement in meaningful activities. I am CPR trained, have an active state and national OT license, and can provide reliable resources upon request. I'm also a pet lover, with a 20-lb ball of fur of my own. Looking forward to this next chapter/opportunity.

Jena C. Hired Sarah
Apr 10, 2021
I hired Sarah to help my active 81-year-old mother. Our biggest need was meal planning, grocery shopping, and meal prep. I liked the idea of having an OT to help Mom build strength and balance, so I agreed to pay $30 per hour (more than other caregivers charge in the Nashville area). Sarah worked about two weeks before something came up which caused her to move back to her hometown. During that time, I discovered that she does not know how to cook! This was most frustrating because I had clearly defined the job duties and Sarah told me with confidence that she could do everything we had asked for. She is very personable, seems to be a good occupational therapist, and always arrived within 10 minutes of the expected time. Sadly she was not a good match for us and I had to start my search all over again and train a new caregiver. I caution others to ask more specific questions in the interview and carefully consider how much you feel that Sarah's services are worth.
