About Marie

I am a retired LPN. Nurturing those who need help has been a driving force in my life throughout my 15+ years as a nurse. I have worked with the elderly most of this time, including experience with Alzheimer's and other forms of dementia. Small services seem to mean so much to these folks, and I find great fulfillment in providing for their needs and hopefully bringing some joy to their day. I have learned the nuance and approach necessary for communicating with and re-directing those whose memory and perceptions are impaired.
