I am a 47 year old mother of 6. I have an associates degree from schoolcraft college in liberal arts. I also have a bachelors degree in gerontology from Madonna University with a minor in business administration. I am also certified in activity therapy. I have been working with the elderly and those with disabilities for the past 22 years. I have a strong desire to help those in need. I believe that everyone should be treated with respect and dignity. I have worked with elderly alzheimers patients as well as stroke victims and am currently still visiting a former client with Huntingtons disease who recently had to be admitted into a nursing home. I often visit local nursing homes (2x a week) just to visit and try to bring comfort to those in need. I hope that it makes a difference in their day. Although I hope to help those I work for, generally I am the one who receives the most reward for this. Knowing you are making the difference in someone's life is extremely rewarding. I also do volunteer work for my church in our assigned nursing home praying with the residents there.
