Caregiver/Personal Assistant

I believe that my passion for caregiving started when my own mother became ill with cancer and I personally saw how demanding, but rewarding, working with elderly or sick people is. I am extremely nurturing and successfully raised three children who are independent and successful adults. I understand how hard it is to find trust and feel comfortable in leaving your loved ones with someone that you don't know. I have many different references, both job related and personal. I just recently ended a five month position taking care of a cancer patient that involved housekeeping, laundry, shopping, cooking and preparing meals, bathing, lifting and total end care responsibilities. Unfortunately, this position finished with her recent passing. I have now helped in getting the house organized and ready for garage sale as organizing is something I am very good at. Prior to this, for roughly two years I spent taking care of a woman with terminal brain cancer. I did everything from taking her to treatments and doctor's appointments, medication control, fun activities, cleaning, cooking and baking, dressing, bathing and end care services including diapering, bathing, transporting in wheelchair or hoyer lift. I became close with the family and helped with emotional support both during and after her death. I stayed on and helped the husband deal with organizing the house and dealing with the many insurance claims. I have years of experience in medical billing and can negotiate with most insurance carriers. I find that patience and compassion are my best qualities and am very energetic and love life. I would do the very best in helping you and your family member and am not afraid of work. I do housecleaning, laundry, pet sitting and walking and love to cook (and I am good at it). I like to eat healthy and love to try new things.

I can't think of anyone more kind, thoughtful, and compassionate than Evie. I feel extremely fortunate that she came into our lives. Evie was a wonderful companion for my 91-year-old father. Though Dad was particular about people he spent time with, Dad warmed up quickly to Evie. You can tell she truly enjoys the company of the people she cares for, making conversation easily, and earning their trust with her calm, sweet nature. She's a hard worker, always completing what needs to be done, and then looking for more she can do to help. She's also a wonderful cook, having had her help me with meals not just for Dad, but for my own family too. Dad is not always an easy person to get along with, but Evie was patient and caring, working through things with him whenever an issue would come up. She met his every need, and even rescued him once on her off hours when he fell and couldn't reach anyone else. She's a lifesaver, and I highly recommend her.

Experienced Caregiver/Personal Assistant

I have more energy than people half my age! I have been providing independent caregiving for more than 10 years. I was a medical assistant for 25 years before I started caregiving. I have a valid driver's license and a new SUV. I am extremely compassionate, detail oriented and well-organized. I provide emotional support not only for the patient but also the family. Being in the medical field I know how to schedule appointments, I understand medical terminology so that if I go to doctor's appointments I can relay what the doctor has said. I have done professional staging for a realtor for four years as well as working and I am moving company doing packing and unpacking. I am extremely organized. I can provide transportation to doctors appointments, shopping and general errands. I am extremely Hands-On in meal prep and cooking, laundry and perhaps some light housekeeping. My main service is to give my client the attention that they need.

Evie worked with our family from 2011-2020 doing errands and household jobs, cooking, pet and child care as well as elder care. Our family had complex dietary needs and Evie quickly learned where to shop, how to prep various configurations of meals to accommodate all. And always with a smile. Evie is generous, wholehearted and always engaging and fun. She was highly dependable and our family misses and loves her dearly!

Patricia was amazing and kind enough to adjust her schedule to come to our rescue on the first morning that we had mom home from rehab, after a very challenging night we had on our own, trying to learn all the ropes of caring for her. She even assisted us with making phone calls to the rehab center to help get our questions answered and referred us to an excellent medical team who now has us in their capable hands. I cannot recommend Patricia highly enough. Thank you Patricia, for saving the day!
