About Grace

I have been a caregiver in some respects since 1981, when I had the first of my five children! I earned CNA licensure in 1993 or so, and worked in the hospital setting in various departments. I have spent the last 17 years in another form of caregiving -- that is, teaching Spanish in public high school , tutoring, and in industry. I re-certified my CNA licensure a few years ago, and am interested in finding part-time work at present. Thank you.

    I am compassionate, kind and reliable. I understand the importance of seniors remaining in the home they love and worked hard for . I have worked in homecare but also in assisted living. In either setting it is important for a caregiver to remember the elderly need to be treated with respect and dignity.

    It has been my privilege to lovingly care for elderly people with dementia, starting with my mother-in-law. I enjoy entering their world and showing them the dignity, respect and gentle care our elders should have. I have become the trusted companion of each person I’ve cared for, and have served several of them for years at a time. Support for the family of the person I am companion to is a special part of my ministry. I am currently a part-time seminary student and simply love people. My desire is to bring joy and wisdom in caregiving to those I serve.
