About Penny

I've been a caregiver for 31 yrs. I started in this field when I was just 17. I love what I do. I come from a medical family and decided at a very young age that i wanted to be a doctor or nurse. I specialize in geriatric dementia and Alzheimers care. Every client needs to know they're truly cared for on every level with love, patience, and kindness. I enjoy learning from them ... they often have amazing histories, stories and lessons to share.I'm often with my clients for the duration of their lives.
