About Adela

I have always loved helping out the elderly I never really had grandparents near me, and I know how much wisdom older folks have. I love listening to them and showing them that they have one person to be able to help them. I have knowledge on how to take care of older people do to me being a oral surgery assistant where I have regularly deal with different types of medical issues, and meds to keep track of. Ever since I was young I was attracted to older people and made them my friends, they always had great advice and amazing stories. I love knowing that I can help put a smile on someone's face, that they have one person who hasn't turned away from them, they can always count on me to help them. I do light work around their homes and try to converse with them as much possible.
