27 yrs old
I am a student of Philosophy and Art at Wesleyan University, taking time off to take care of an older friend's land, living with my brother. We are creating a vegetable garden/homestead there, and I am in the process of building myself a painting studio, while my brother works to build himself a piano studio. I have experience caring for children from 8 to 16, as well as special needs care experience, and am now looking to move to work in elderly care. I am an avid gardener and artist (painter and paper maker), and I love to cook! I would be happy to help with meals, any gardening help, any general house or yard work, as well as being a companion for those living alone. I love a good conversation and to hear the stories that seniors have to tell. I also have quite a few of my own. I am anxious to learn what I can from my elders while giving back what I have in patience and compassion. I have been described as "an old soul" and very much enjoy the company of those much older than myself. I believe deeply in the value of the mutual benefit inherent in the care giving relationship of a young person caring for an elder.
