About Mary

Dear Review Committee: I have spent my professional career as an attorney and have relocated to the Pinellas County area. The practice of law contains two components: advocating the law for your clients, and providing passionate, thorough, and devoted attention to your clients' personal needs as they relate to their legal issue. The second part of that equation is what called me to pick law as a profession and continues to guide me today----a caring and nurturing desire to help people. I believe my talents are uniquely suited to the Senior population at this point in my life. Having had a career, I can relate to others that have retired. I have a vast knowledge of different types of people, cultures and topics. So I find it easy to relate to almost anyone. I am an excellent listener and do not need to have the conversation center around my life/world. I understand that some seniors can be a bit set in their ways. As long as “their way” does not present a health or safety risk, “their way” it shall be. Also, and maybe most important, my background as a lawyer and own personal maturity give me a keen sense of professional boundaries. I understand that I am an employee providing companion services and in no way am I to service as a replacement for a client's family, loved ones, doctor, lawyer or spiritual adviser. While some level of intimacy is necessary to be successful at provided my services, professional distance must be maintained. Kindest regards, Mary “Blair” Carr

    Hello, I am an experienced care giver companion who genuinely likes helping people. My experience is with the elderly suffering from mid stage Alzheimer's, stroke recovery, vision impairment and limited mobility. I am very kind and compassionate as well as organized and trustworthy. I am intelligent and resourceful and I get along very well with my clients and their families. I like to work directly for clients, bypassing the agency mark up, establishing a semi permanent arrangement with the client/family. I have letters of recommendation from the two different out of town daughters. One of a couple I cared (89,92), who I eventually helped move to assisted living. I live in Largo FL adjacent to Indian Rocks Beach and Bellaire Beach. I have an AHCA level 2 backround check and my BLS. I completed a CNA prep course and I received a HHA through a local agency. I have an associate's degree + several courses at St. Petersburg College toward by BA. I do not have children which gives me a lot of flexibility. Thank you and I hope to hear from you soon.

    I am a Certified Patient Care Technician, CNA-HHA with CPR through American Heart Association. I have spent the past 12 years helping people with anything they may need. I have a very soft spot in my heart for people in need... anything from helping them with cooking, shopping, driving to doctor's appointment, personal care, medicines reminder, as well as just someone to spend time with. I have been known to be the sunshine to someone's day. I enjoy helping others and putting a smile on someone's face is the best reward anyone could ask for! Thank you.
