Understanding that as we age we are facing many unforeseen and often challenging circumstances which often require the assistance of other people. For some this is not always easy to accept, it can be a vulnerable stage in ones life. I feel it is my job as a caregiver to be sensitive, understanding, patient, and kind. Most of all I want to be helpful in any way I can to assist you in meeting your caregiving needs. I am easy to get along with and have a gentle disposition. Let me know if I can be of assistance to you.

My introduction to caregiving began with supporting my grandmother who has suffered from a number of health challenges including emotional and physical. Helping her to stay in the comforts of her home as she endured these life challenges was rewarding for both of us. I learned that my ability to offer emotional support was equally valuable to my ability to support her physical therapy and mobility.
In the years that followed, I have offered care coordination, diet planning and food preparation, yoga, assistance in travel and leisure activities, home decor., handyman support and general care to the elders of my community. My schedule is flexible and my commitment is to support your dignified process of aging with as much comfort and joy as possible.
