I started off helping out a friend of the family who was diagnosed with Alzheimer's, That was one of the most rewarding positions that I have ever worked. I enjoy helping people and giving them the quality care that they deserve. In 1989 I was able to help my father after he fell 100' down a mountain cliff. We were able to view the whole rescue on TV with my Dad because the show Emergency 911 was filming and had been interviewing Rescue Air 5. It was great being a part of all the people who were able to respond and help as a team to save my Dads life. In 2010 I helped manage care for a quadriplegic, We developed a relationship and working with Gordon was a pleasure.

I've work worked in short and long term care in facilities, rehabilitations and also in seniors private home. Assisting seniors with ADLs, exercise, transferring, grooming, light housekeeping, and offer assistant with other tasks. I enjoy helping clients achieve short or long term goal, talk with them and find out what's their favorite book, show on tv, music they like. I love cooking and baking by following recipes online or cookbook or whatever the clients wants. In my spare time I love watching documentaries, read autobiography books, hanging out with my families and friends, go to movies, and love listening to classical music. Thank you, have a wonderful day. Renee
