Meet Shari

One year ago my Mother lost her battle with Pulmonary Fibrosis. I cared for her at home for two years while she was on Hospice. I was her full time nurse and worked closely with her hospice team in managing medications, oxygen, meals, hospice visits, catheter care, toileting needs, and more. In short I learned the ropes of caring for someone on hospice. I became a model caregiver in the eyes of my Mom's hospice team. They said that it was due to the quality of her care at home that she lasted for 2 years. Before that, I cared for my Dad for 4 years while he suffered from Lewy Body Dementia. Although he lived in a facility, I was involved with his emotional needs and hospice care right down to the end. These were the most challenging years of my life, but I wouldn't trade them for anything. It's the most meaningful and rewarding work I've ever done. And now I'm ready to give care again. I know family members can become exhausted caring for a loved one. I can provide you extra help.
