I absolutely love helping others, working with our elderly and disabled and have been doing so since age 15, professionally for over 22 years. In our society it is now commonplace to toss them aside. Not so with me. I believe they deserve all of the love, respect and honor possible, especially for those on their journey "home". I believe in quality of life above anything else and will work tirelessly to ensure both you and your family get just that! My portfolio is large and my reputation for excellant care is well known in the Bay Area . My specialties are hospice care, advocacy between patients and their care team, care team/household management and assisting/managing detailed treatment plans for those who are terminally ill yet are "getting the cure"; particularly if travel is involved, as nearly ALL cures are banned from the U.S. I have a toy Chihuahua named Nutmeg; a registered and licensed service animal via the U.S.D.R., who's job is to put a smile on your face and contentment in your soul, that is of course if you desire the extra companionship. I care very much about people and I feel it is my calling to help those who can't help themselves. Peace and Light! ... more
