About Darlene

I believe I am a great care giver because of my out going personality, my eagerness to assist others especially the elderly and my experience in care giving/companionship. I really enjoy being in the company of the elderly because they have so many stories, lots of wisdom and an innocence about them. I love kind people and most elderly are so kind!! When I worked with a Caregiving company I received 4 certificates for completion of courses in working with clients with Alzheimer's, personal care, working with clients with severe Alzheimer's and my assistance during the blizzard of one year.

    Assisted my client with housekeeping and meal preparation, personal care, ran errands for her and with her. Took her to scheduled appointments and just out for the day shopping or to parks. We were a good team and worked well with one another. We became very close friends and also kept a professional relationship. Sadly my client passed away.
