I have been told how my love for people, animals, and life shows through the way I speak and live day to day. I find joy in helping the elderly. It truly has been a double blessing since 2004. I have been trained by the best and constantly schooling myself in subjects pertaining to aging. Most of my jobs have had situations with such cases. I had no problem connecting, relating and reversing the moments of confusion and fear. I was able to help guide them in making their own decisions; whether it was about what to wear, how we got mentally ready for the shower or the stairs, what to eat, and how they could help in the preparation. I am an engaging personality and my clients seem to appreciate that. I include them rather than to let them sit idle. As a chef, I have dealt with many dietary needs and health challenges over the years none too great or small.
