About Rick

I am out-going and would make a good companion for your family member. I enjoy people and like to engage in conversation. I am trustworthy and reliable, but my strength is my patience. I know from taking care of my own mother that events often take a little longer and I am perfectly fine with approaching the day at the pace that is most comfortable to my client. I am not a nurse, nor am I comfortable with tasks that are personal in nature. But when it comes to shopping, transportation, doctors visits and light home duties, I am your guy.

Experience & Education

Care giver.

Aug 2010 - Mar 2018
When my Dad passed away I moved back home and took on the role of care giver for my aging Mother. She had poor vision and needed someone to live with her to maintain her quality of life in the home she loved. She has since passed away, but I learned that I have a natural ability to provide quality care and companionship. My responsibilities included chauffeur to all kinds of events / vacations / doctors appointments, TV and dinner companion, daily conversation, shopping, medication, run errands, help with coat/shoes, basic cooking, house work, and some technology assistance.
