About Christine

I have been giving personalized compassionate care for 24 yrs. I have experience in hospitals, nursing homes, assisted living and hospice facilities as well. I believe in caring for the individual as a whole, taking care to look as their physical needs, mental/emotional needs and spiritual needs.I can be a liaison between other care providers and your doctor if necessary, I will take clients to doctor appointments to convey progress or decline in health. I will ensure that their nutritional needs are met and work with my clients to help them achieve the highest quality of life through daily exercising whether lying in bed, in a chair or able to stand/walk. I focus on what my client is able to achieve rather than what they cannot. I truly believe it is in the best interest of my patients to remain in their familiar surroundings if at all possible. I have excellent references . I look forward to meeting with you to discuss your individual needs. Christ's Peace
