About Janet

I first became interested in the Nursing field at the age of 12. I was in the 5th grade when I saw my little sister in the NICU for 9 days. It was amazing seeing the nurses provide the care. Looking at the wall of stories children wrote thanking them. The picture of how small they were and grew to become big and strong. As I got older I felt I would be too emotional and scared to handle loosing an such a small child. But, I still wanted to make a difference. I never had my grandparents and always felt like I was missing that love and companionship which is what switched me over to work with the elderly. I can help them as much as they help me. I never liked history in school but hearing my residents talk about their time in world war 1 and world war 2 fascinates me and actually motivated me to try harder in school. A lot of time the caregiver is more than just that; we become family. We see them more, we get to know what they like and don't like, what makes them happy or helps them calm down. It is an amazing bond and job.

I have been a senior companion for over 10 years. When I work with seniors, I take it very personal to see them satisfied and happy. I tune in with their personalities and preferences, and adjust our activities according to what they enjoy, what empowers them and what keeps their emotional, mental and health condition as good as possible. I am flexible, and adjust easily to what my clients need. I become their best friend and feel like a family. We have fun, stay safe and healthy. Caring for an elder person is a very personal business and their quality of life and health depend on it. I saved lives, made lives better and always have my client's best in heart. My career as a senior companion happened very naturally and holistically. It didn't start as a career but as a neighbor helping neighbor and friend helping friend. Helping "straight from my heart", with my natural tendency to be there for people in need, became a profession as a natural progression of what I love to do and what I am good at. So far all my clients have been very happy with my service and I am looking forward to helping you.
