I want to help people stay in their home as long as possible, to feel that they have a friend that cares,and hopefully that someone feels the same when I need help. I love talking to the seniors hearing about their lives and what make happy. I have been able to take care of a few of the family and know that they received the best care I could give them and was also able to say goodbye to them. I always put other before myself.
