About Christina

I believe in the dignity and value of each person, so I enjoy working with people to try to help them achieve good quality of life. Sometimes health issues get in the way of great quality of life, but with long-term issues, there are plenty of things to do to work towards the best quality of life possible. Being active physically and/or mentally is important for clients. And care tasks can be done in ways that seek to maintain safety, minimize risks, enhance dignity, and be engaging. If you would like to communicate further regarding specific ideas or requests, please let me know! Thank you.
