Meet Shirley

Taking care of the elderly has been a very rewarding experience for me. I am blessed to be able to work with loving families who care for their needy member. For almost 5 years, I have accumulated experiences that enhanced my skills with dealing with the elderly, at the same time enriching my life.

I have cared for clients with Alzheimer's, Dementia, Parkinson's, cancer, depression, COPD. I have been a Companion/Sitter for the last 2 1/2 years. I provided ADLs, medical reminders, meal preparation, transportation to doctor's appointment, errands to store, beauty/barber shop, dry cleaners, gym and has engaged my clients to social interaction like dining out, movies, visit to museums, attending musical recitals and concerts and playing word/board/card games at home.

I take care of my clients like family because at the end of the day, we are just one family.

J P. Hired Shirley
Mar 31, 2015
Shirley is an excellent caregiver. I would hire her again before looking elsewhere. We loved having her care for my father who is 92 and was extremely particular about who was helping him. She was able to come in and quickly access the situation for him, help us figure out what sort of care he would need, and provide advice and help over and beyond our expectations. She is worth every penny of as many hours as you can afford to have her around. My father left his home where he had been living independently with Shirley's help, and went into an assisted living facility, so we no longer need her to help with him. She is a sensitive and caring soul. We would trust her judgment in helping in all decision matters. A nice person (a godsend) to help us in a very trying time with our elderly, needy father. The best imaginable help for an elderly family member.
