Profile

Born and Raised in Austin, my life changed completely right after college. I'll keep it simple -- I got sick. I never understood the importance of "helpers" until I needed assistance going to the restroom. I was humiliated --- UNTIL that calm and peaceful Helper talked to me in the nicest voice. "Its okay. I'm here for you," he kept saying over and over. My humiliation turned to appreciation. I was able to focus on getting well. Years later, I have since recovered. I went back to competitive martial arts and other sports. I rebuilt my health and wellness post-testicular cancer. But one thing never changed, my appreciation for the helpers. So for years, whether it's been to help care for my beloved dear dear Mom ( Full Dementia -- resident at Assisted Living Facility), or my visually impaired cousin, I know that using a cheerful yet calm tone of voice is a critical part of the relationship I try to build with them, and with others. Many people who need home health assistance may never "get well." So it's important to just be there for them.
