I do love caring for hospice clients. I am not accepting any new clients at this time.
I enjoy elder care and consider it an opportunity to be a blessing. I am low key, reassuring, and gentle. I am glad to do light housekeeping, simple meal prep, dressing, bathing, and hair; play games, offer companionship, and pick up groceries. I have had clients needing regular B/P checks and/or oxygen. I would prefer no smoking or pets, but let’s talk. I will usually be available 8 am-10 pm with flexibility in an emergency. I also did transcription for years and would enjoy recording and transcribing clients’ memories for family posterity.
I hope my education, training and life experience can support you, your health and living the life you want. Sometimes we need help from our community to make it through each day. I have been blessed by the Orcas Community when I was in need. Now, I can share even more deeply with those who need support. Feel free to contact me by phone 206-930-5704. Thank you.
