About Lynne

I'm an open-minded, friendly, compassionate woman with personal & professional integrity. Empathy and reliability, patience and the ability to laugh at myself & situations (instead of stewing about them) makes me a great caregiver. The safety of a client is of utmost importance. I've always liked to help the elderly to enrich their lives .
