About Carole

I have been a caregiver my entire adult life. As a retired RN, I have been focusing on caring for the senior population. This began with caring for my own mother for 5 years. Elder care is very rewarding. I love getting to know each client and try to personalize the care they receive. This often includes talking to family members and getting input as to what brings joy to each clients life, as well getting the clients to tell me about their lives. In other words each person has different likes and dislikes, and different physical and emotional needs. It is extremely important to me to treat each and every client with respect and dignity, and to help them maintain as much independence as they are capable of.

Visiting various facilities including hospitals, assisted living homes, rehab facilities, and doctors offices. My role was to introduce the senior services my company offered and guide caregivers to place appropriate patients to these programs. This often included interviewing the patient before discharge and making arrangements for the caregivers to work with the patient when they arrive home or to the facility in which they reside.

I'm an honest, reliable, gentle person who enjoys making someone feel cared for. I used to work in an office, but felt a calling to work with seniors instead, and it was the best decision I could have made. I'm happy to help with housework, errands, cooking, pet care, personal care - whatever is needed. I can be good company, or I can stay out of the way, but I will always do my best to make you comfortable and happy.
