About Carol

My philosophy is that every single client deserves to be treated with the utmost respect and dignity. I am a dedicated professional who has the desire to give loving one on one care to the client. I have been a registered nurse for 22 years. I have worked at a variety of nursing jobs during this time. For the last 7 years I have been taking care of my elderly father-in -law, who recently passed at the age of 94. I truly cherished my time as his caregiver. I feel I am an excellent caregiver with a wide range of experience , a nurturing personality and am very patient with people. I am confident that I can communicate and gain rapport with the client and their family members. I am a good listener, very responsible, and dependable. I am seeking the opportunity to provide your loved one with a caring and safe invironment!
