About Joan Helen

Hello I'm known as JoHelen, "Everyday I do what I love and I love what I do... my Vocation and my Purpose in life". I'm an Irish woman living in beautiful Winter Park for 25 years and Orlando for 5 years. With over 35 years experience in Europe & Florida in the Home Caregiving Industry within the Private Sector. My life has been blessed and is still a blessing, even during these most challenging times, the world over. I am Smoke Sensitive and Allergic to Cat's... so if you do smoke or have Cat's, then I'm unable to assist you - I've no Allergies or concerns to or with any Dogs though. I've been frequently COVID-19 Tested and I have also Completed the 2 Dose Vaccination. During all of these years I've personally provided & or supervised our wonderful senior community, both men and women with multiple types and disciplines of "Hands on Home Care, Health & Companion Care, Respite Care and all forms and facets of Private Duty Caregiving". Certified Medication Aide is also one of the multiple qualifications I hold, that allow me to assist you. Whilst within your home, I can safely administer any and all of your prescribed and or over the counter medications, be it daily or weekly. I've also played an active role in doing Physical Therapy / Occupational Therapy / Recreational Therapy and Speech Therapy Assistance. I can also provide Transportation for any of your Dr. Appointments, Errands and Social and Spiritual Activities, on an prn (as needed basis), whilst I am assisting you. Let me; help you, help you... be safe, be comfortable and be happy at home. Both my Personal and Professional references are available, upon request. Thank you for your consideration, I truly look forward to our talking about your needs and then meeting you. Regards, JoHelen
