About Richard

I have been passionate about healthcare since I started as a Patient Care Assistant in 11th grade, way back in 1997. I worked in a busy post-surgical ward in a hospital setting for 17 years and have since found home healthcare incredibly rewarding. I have ample experience in assisting with post-orthopedic surgical patients, ambulation, dressing, bathing, toileting, catheter care, ostomy care, checking blood glucose levels, and vital signs. I spent over a year assisting a hemiplegic stroke patient I thoroughly enjoy helping others live how they wish to live. My goal is to help anyone in need get back to the best quality of life possible.

When I was 16 years old, my grandfather who was bedridden after many strokes, and also diagnosed with Alzheimer's and dementia moved into our home, and me and my mother took care of him until his last days. When he passed I realized I wanted to go into healthcare to make a difference in other people's lives the way he did for me.
