About Shelly

I fell in love with caregiving while I was taking care of my mother at home and seemed like something I was very good at it. After she was placed in a nursing home, I worked as an activity asst for a year and continued to be my mom's advocate. From there I worked with Alzheimer's residents for about 3 years, then continued working off and on in elder care throughout most of my working history. I enjoy helping others that need the assisting. Being 1 of 3 caregivers chosen by a client for providing her cares only was to me quit an achievement!

As a licensed practical nurse I believe health encompasses the whole person and their support network. Without a sound support network you have a weakness, if I can help fill that area to give a better foundation of support to an individual and their network of support, I am more than willing to do so. I have always wanted to challenge myself to do more for my community, by helping others with their daily activities I feel I am bringing some semblance of independence and dignity back to those who may feel as though they have lost those critical pieces in their lives. This in turn brings back a piece of our community, making it whole once again. In my personal life I enjoy learning new skills. I tried my hand at gardening this summer and was able to grow plenty of food which in turn lead to me learning how to can some foods.

I am the mother to 10 children, 3 adopted with special needs. A foster mom, and a US Army Veteran, married to the love of my life. I have been a caregiver since I was 15 years old. I've worked in Nursing homes, hospitals, home care-private duty nursing, HHA, private pay care, and hospice. Caretaking is a huge part of who I am. I have a bubbly personality and find I can get along with just about anyone. I promise to take care of your loved one as if they are my own.
