About Brook

My name is Brook, I am a 44 year old mother of 3, and I've been working as a caregiver for a few years. I love caregiving as I am a very friendly person who has always had a soft spot for elderly people and those who are in need. I'm vey patient and loving and have found that most of my elderly friends have become like family. I truly believe in treating others the way that I would want to be treated myself. I'm always on time and willing to help in any way that is needed from housework to running errands to cooking your favorite foods! I'm looking forward to my next caregiving experience, so if you think that I can be of service to you or your loved one, please do not hesitate to call me.
