About Tara

I became a Caregiver because I had always wanted to nurture others and treat their physical/emotional wounds. Being a Caregiver is so fulfilling because of the positive difference you can make in others' lives. I am proud of my years with the Residents and realizing how much they taught me about worth and living life fully even with debilitating conditions. I greatly enjoy learning people's histories. Everyone has a story to share.
