About Christine

I have over 20 years experience taking care of the elderly. I worked at Vi At Bentley Village in Naples, Florida for 21 years. I worked on the total care unit and in the home health department. I was first attracted to being a caregiver when I was a young child. I always looked forward to going over to my Grandma's house and helping her with cleaning, brushing her hair, soaking her feet and putting lotion on them for her. After many years of care giving, I still have the passion I started with as a youth and really enjoy helping people.
