About Lonyea

I take great pleasure in being able to provide care to those whom are unable to care for themselves . After caring for my grandmother when she suffered a heart attack , my life was changed forever. I realized that everyone needs someone who genuinely cares and is willing to do the work for them when they can't do it themselves . That's person is me .
