Tall and stylish, with a contralto voice and a ready laugh, Towana has entered into our mother's life with care-giving curiosity. She problem-solves, understanding that to bring stability and safety requires not just correct diagnoses, but also constant observation of her client's body, mind, and spirit. She has brought stability and precision as well as the lightness of surprise: "You said you wanted to go out. Well, today we're going. Come on!" Mom depends on her. Organizing meds; wake-up calls on her days off; errands; light housework and ongoing home decorating (Oy!); trips outdoors; trips to the nurse; re-iterating messages of medical professionals; encouraging exercise; attention to Mom's concentric circles of complicated relationships: Towana brings emotional intelligence as well as hustle. What does this particular elder need on this particular day. That's real care. Towana has helped pull my mother from depressed back to feisty.

I've had the opportunity to work part-time with a gentleman with a form of progressive MS for the past 10 years. My goal is to enhance his quality of life by assisting him with everyday activities and promoting his physical well being. Daily activities include: Providing physical therapy exercises for strength and range of motion, as well as massage and acupressure; assisting him at breakfast; transferring him from bed to his wheelchair, and from wheelchair to toilet and back; hand washing, shampooing, shaving, brushing teeth and dressing; assisting him with a hand urinal; administering medications and vitamin supplements; setting up and assisting with his computer and pretty much whatever he may need at the time. I deeply value the bond and friendship that has developed over the years and have had the privilege of helping this kind, determined, and courageous man. I feel a personal mission to support his well being in any way that I can. I also had the joy of working with a gentleman with Alzheimer's, until his recent passing. My role with hm included working with his family to monitor his overall care at a memory care facility. My goal was to enhance his quality of life, encourage his interest in the world around him, and promote his mental and physical well being. Daily activities included: Walking with him indoors and outdoors to promote his balance and strength while securing his safety; engaging him verbally and with pictures and music to enrich his experience and maximize his mental ability; using my experience as a massage therapist - providing him with physical therapy exercises for strength, range of motion, and balance, as well as acupressure and massage; assisting him at meal times to encourage his independence, as well as social skills in the dining room. I would also assist with traveling to doctor appointments, grocery shopping, some light cooking, making sure he was adequately hydrated, art and music, and some personal care.

Hello! I would love the chance to help maintain the highest quality of life for your loved one as they age. I have a special place in my heart for the elderly as I spent time as a live-in care taker for my sweet grandmother who suffered from dementia and other chronic health conditions. I have experience with bathing/changing/dressing , medication management, scheduling/accompanying to al types of appointments, and assisting with errands, like grocery shopping . I have reliable transportation, and am a very tidy and organized person. I have nutrition education appropriate to support healthy food preparation, weight management and overall monitoring of chronic conditions (such as heart disease, diabetes, kidney disease, high blood pressure, obesity). On a professional level, I have over 5 years of experience working in a long term care facility as the sole clinical dietitian. I have been trained in Alzheimer's and dementia care, and am CPR/first aid.

Alisha cares so deeply for people in general, but especially seniors, who are often overlooked in our society. She wants them to enjoy their remaining years--living how they want to, but she also wants them to be healthy and live long, meaningful lives. She is extremely helpful & accommodating. She is the first to jump in and help friends and families at social gatherings. She is a wonderful listener, and has the biggest heart of anyone I've ever met. When she tries anything, she gives 100% and doesn't leave tasks unfinished. I'd trust her to care for my aging loved ones, and would trust her to take care of myself if I was unable to.
