About Amanda

Growing up I always wanted to become a nurse or a special education teacher. I was surprised in 2015 when I gave birth to a daughter with significant special needs. God gave me a heart for caregiving, even from a young age. Our family has opened up to fostering medically fragile children, and to continue to financially meet that goal I am trying to get a caregiving job outside of our home. I love learning about medical equipment and expanding my knowledge on diagnosises that I may be unfamiliar with. But my favorite part of caregiving is making a meaningful connection with my clients. Every person is capable of making a connection, sometimes it's in grunts or hand squeezes. In my daughter's case it is clapping to a rhythm, whatever your loved ones way of communicating and connecting is I want to be able to met that need.

At 69 years old I am blessed to be able to continue with my choice of a care-giving career. Before retiring from teaching I decided to give care giving a try by working that summer with Home Instead Services. This experience prepared me and solidified the desire to offer my help to senior citizens. I am fulfilling a call to this area of service just like I did to teaching. I have made lasting and dear friendships through this choice.
