Profile

I am an extremely energetic and very healthy 74 year old. The picture on my profile is quite recent although my hair color has changed. I have been caring for the same couple for the past three years. They both have Dementia and one has cancer. I have several years, approximately eight years, of experience caring for seniors. I am comfortable with seniors and understand their needs better than most since I am a senior. I can provide references if you like.
