About Torri

I (Torri) became a Caregiver, because it has became a passion of mine. Since caring for my great Grandmother till her last day. I've felt a need to help the elderly that simply cannot do it themselves. I've worked in many care facilities and also did in home care on the side. The feeling of accomplishment, love, and someone genuinely caring for him/her that I see from a resident/client is the reason why I love doing this action. It's not just a "job" you're a huge deal in this persons life and that is a privilege. I've done the House Keeping shifts, Care Companion shifts, Med Aid shift, and in home care shifts. ALL give me a sense of fulfilment, which I always want to have in my life. I'm going to further my career based in Elder care. I've worked in a Facility that partakes in Dementia, Alzheimers, Hospice, and more. This is my PASSION and i'd love to further it.

    I have always wanted to help people with special needs; perhaps because I had a sibling who was born with severe disabilities, so I know first hand the difficulties and challenges faced by these individuals and their families. There was very little help available when I was a child, so we relied mainly on our family for the help and support we needed. Back then, there were no respite services or in-home caregiver services. You took your chances on finding a trustworthy stranger (if you could afford one). Now, it is very gratifying to me to be able to help other people who are dealing with illness or disability in any way I can. I like to make jewelry and craft items, and I like to share those hobbies with my clients, if they're interested. Many of them seem to enjoy these activities and find them gratifying. I also love to read, and some clients enjoy being read to, which I also enjoy. I've been told I'm a good listener and a pretty good companion, as I can adapt to whatever my client is capable of and willing to do. I am experienced, caring, and am a retired social worker.
