About Janice

I decided to become a caregiver after being hospitalized and realizing how crucial "TLC" is when one is in a fragile state. I enjoy the interpersonal bond and trust that forms between myself and my client. I am most proud of the undivided attention I embellish on my client. A little about me ... I am a native New Yorker; I was widowed at a young age; I have no children, however, I have two doggies (who are my kiddies!) I have very loving family and friends, who I socialize with regularly ... I am very blessed!
