Profile

I have experience working with a quad in the past and more recently with seniors suffering from COPD, depression, heart issues, dementia and loss of ability to perform activities of daily living. I enjoy the opportunity to care for others and make a person feel important and valued. I am a very easy going, responsible, caring and attentive worker. I understand and am sensitive to the needs of those requiring assistance. I have a history of education, social services and insurance sales specializing in the senior market. I lost my husband about a year ago after caring for him the last couple of years of his life. He was a Vietnam Veteran and suffered from COPD, depression and heart issues. I have a very special spot in my heart for Veterans. I have a great amount of patience, experience and skill to offer and especially enjoy the rewards that come from helping others
