About Darlene

I have been a caregiver for over 25 years and I love it. My mother was a Home Health Nurse and took me with her sometimes and I would see how just little things would make her clients so happy and knew that is what I wanted to do. I have worked for Visiting Angels for almost 8 years and I'm still there, but they don't have many hours right now. I am certified on Alzhelimer and Dementia care, I also have my CPR certification. I can take your loved one to Doctor Appointments and report the doctor's instructions to the family, go on outing and doing whatever they choose to do. I have multiple letters from family members about how well I take care of their family members and they have also sent the letters to Visiting Angels. I love what I do so I guess that's why I don't look at it as just a job. I have always treated my clients as I would want someone to treat my loved one
