About Cheryl

I love people and gain satisfaction from helping those in need. Dignity and respect are something everyone deserves. Therefore, I try to honor others by treating them the way I would want to be treated and the way I would wish my loved one to be treated as well. Caregiving affords me flexibility of schedule at a time in my life when it would be valued most. I had the privilege of being a caregiver for a gentleman who had Alzheimer's. He had been a school principal so it was a privilege for me to care for him and dignify him during his senior years, along with caring for his dear wife as well. I planned and prepared lunch and dinner for them and it was joy to see how they enjoyed the meals while I also cared for their home when they could no longer do it for themselves. I am a self starter and am able to multitask, thus accomplishing much during the course of a day much to the pleasure of my clients and their families. I hope to bring joy to those in my care.
