Hi! I am in my (youthful) 60's. My husband and I moved to Florida 4 years ago after raising our family in Vermont. I am a very cheerful, outgoing person and able to quickly establish rapport. I am a college graduate. I worked for a computer company for 11 yrs and 10 yrs in Inpatient Rehab. I cared for my Grandmother, and Mother at various stages of aging. I loved them both very much. I provided over 5 years of total care to a quadriplegic woman with CP. My most recent assignment was with a lovely 85 yr old woman with Stage 4 cancer, hearing loss, altered mental state and mobility/safety issues. For three months we had a "Saturday Night Date" and watched all the old movies. I covered both days and overnights providing assistance with personal care, medication reminders / administration, food-prep (I Love to cook!), light housekeeping, and companionship. I bring thoughtful, compassionate care to the lives of the seniors I serve.
