Profile

I have worked with elders for 25 years in various capacities, from home health, Adult Day Services, Long Term Care, personal board and care homes. I have worked both the medical side and the psycho-social aspect. I prescribe to the belief of treating an elder with dignity and value, giving compassionate care, a hug and a chance to laugh, and encouraging as much independence with daily cares, that is appropriate for each individual. My specialization is working with elders with dementia. I took care of my Mom at the end of her lifes' journey, and I understand just how hard it can be to find the "right" fit for the ones we love. I hope to be your "right" fit!!

Other Information

I have spent much time working in "nursing homes", and although they are much better, I feel honored to be able to work in a venue that keeps elders at home as long as humanly possible.
