Meet Theresa

My passion stems from growing up with my maternal grandmother living in my household. I developed a special affection for seniors due to my close relationship with her. In her later years I provided personal care; medication reminders, ran errands and companionship for her. My sister was suffering with Lewy Body Dementia. Her husband provided for her to live at home. On many occasions I provided respite care for her which included personal care; meal prep; administering oral medications and insuring her safety at all times. Sadly, she passed 22 months ago at the age of 61. More recently I was companion to an 80-year-old woman with dementia who was living in a facility. During our time together we participated in activities provided by the facility as well as activities I designed to met her needs and desires. Part of my diverse work experiences were working in an assisted living facility and a nursing home.
