About Francesca

I have beena medical assistant for 9 years - became a caregiver about 8 years ago after my grandmother who was diagnosed with Alzheimer's. After caring for her I got a job at an assisted living facility for memory care. I fell in love even more with the field. I took care of 28 residents and loved everyone of them. I truly have a passion for taking care of people. I then started working for an agency with home health to where I started to take care of loved ones inside the comfort of their own home and this was exactly what I wanted. They were inside their own element and comfortable rather than being inside a facility. I then loved this field even more because I was working one on one with Alzheimer/Dementia patients. I would assist them with their daily medications, bathing, light house cleaning, meal preps, grocery shop, doctor appointments, activities. I made sure they kept their minds busy and most importantly comfortable.
