Thank you! A LITTLE ABOUT ME: I diligently ensure preventative health care, personal comfort and safety. I perform and/or assist with all activities of daily living while fostering independence & encouraging socialization. I approach daily life with positive energy & an attitude of service and compassion. I have a heightened awareness about the anxiety patients experience when they become less able to perform the tasks they once could - and the frustration they feel from a loss of independence. I have learned that I can make a difference in the course of a person's day; through a delicate balance of patience, respect and taking notice of the little things. I am flexible and willing to work evenings, overnights and weekends. I am domestically inclined, well read and I have never met a stranger!
