About Susan

Hello, I want to be a caregiver because I enjoy loving and caring for people. There are wonderful elderly people who are seeking good conversations who are lonely and want to be around fun and happy caring people. I had two children now grown and moved across the country so I have been looking for a rewarding job to care for others the way I cared for my own family. I love to cook great meals, help people who need care regardless of what it is? I love being a helper and have several elderly friends I spend time with. I enjoy driving, playing music (piano and guitar)! I love reading and hearing other peoples stories as so many just want to share parts of their lives.
