About James

I'm a dedicated, loyal, dependable mature adult and I love working with older adults and interacting with older adults. I have worked with older adults in a veteran's clinic, and also in two assisted living facilities. I have worked, volunteered, and practiced as a personal care provider, activities assistance, and patient services assistant. What has really made me proud in the past, is when a resident asks for me by name to be their sole caregiver because he/she was really pleased with the consistently outstanding service I delivered.
