Other Information

I am seeking positions in respite care for families. 24, 48 or more hours per shift. I can also act as advocate for the patient. I am offering the families the advantage of having one person they know and trust, vs. an endless stream of unknown and marginally educated caregivers. I also offer a high level of home security and truly professional cooking. I am willing to cook for the entire family as part of the service. An additional goal is to provide stress relief for the other family members.
