I love assisting the elderly because of their life experiences and all the stories they love to share. My goal is to give their last years with us respect,and treat them with all the compassion and love they truly deserve. I have worked in assisted living homes for 15 yrs with some time off to assist my son and his family when my oldest grandson was diagnosed with Leukemia,he is now in remission and doing well with God's help. I have worked primarily with Alzheimer's,dementia and have found how much fun and challenging this can be but they are my main interest in working with the elderly. I have a degree in Medical Assistance and worked for Clark Retirement Homes in Grand Rapids, MI. and Baruch Ministries both in Grand Rapids and Grand Haven. I also helped take care of my mother after she was diagnosed with Alzheimer's. I am looking to move on to a one on one situation for the personal satisfaction I would feel not only for me but for the person I would be able to help.
