Profile

I am a retired Licensed Professional Counselor. I am also a single adoptive mom. I adopted my daughter from Latvia when she was 6 months old, and I can't believe she is about to turn 17. Caring for your loved one is so much more than just taking care of their physical needs. It is equally important that they be treated with respect and patience, that their dignity is maintained, and that they be given choices whenever possible so they have some sense of control in their lives. They also need to know that they can trust and depend on their caretaker because that helps them to feel more secure. This is how I have cared for my own mother and grandmother, and I believe your loved one deserves nothing less.I strive to involve them in their care whenever possible, giving them choices that they are able to make, and being fully present when I care for them so they know they can depend on me. I am organized, punctual, reliable, and I am very calm and level headed in emergencies.
