About April

I am compassionate, empathetic, and a great listener. Over the past nine years I have worked in the mental and medical health industry, and have learned the importance of providing dignity, respect, and independence to the clients I serve. Because of my overall experience I have adopted a Holistic approach for health and wellness which includes yoga, meditation, and the preparation of healthy meals. Caregiving for me, is not a job. I love making my clients feel happy and comfortable while in their homes by providing them with the companionship they deserve.
