About Amber

I'm a Dental assistant who loves caring and helping the older generation! My step mother was diagnosed with MS (multiple sclerosis) in 2005 and she is currently bed bound, and has been for 5 years. Taking care of her motivated me to become more active in the community by helping someone on my time away from my dental office! In 2017 I joined a company and was assigned to a couple. I've been taking care of them since! They fill my heart with joy every time I see them!

32 year old, Private Aide/Nurse, with broad range of skills and experience. My first caretaking experience was with my great ant, who had dementia and was 96 years old. I cared for her at the age of 14 and knew that's what I would do for the rest of my life. I started my first job at a nursing home as a CNA when I was 20 years old in Brooklyn NY. I worked there for 4 years and moved on to private duty. My day is complete knowing I can help someone and their loved ones.

Greetings! I am Mary Van Gorp, I am fun loving, energetic, compassionate, caring person who is a believer in a compassionate savior. I have been a caregiver with 6 + years experience with a dear lady that had Alzheimers. I loved caring for her in her daughters home. Where I was able to minister to her. Take her for rides and walks two to three times per day. I prepared breakfast and lunch for Kathleen. Helped bath her and get her dressed for the day. I was able to give Kathleen all my attention, and all the attention she deserved because she was in her daughters home. I became part of the family. Once a month I would stay for 4 days & nights so the family could have a break. By caregiving Kathleen in her daughters home I was able to practice my Nutritional Health coaching skills. Like giving Kathleen her medication. I also added supplements she was missing. I also improved her diet and fluid intake which stoped the UTI's which was an ongoing problem when I started taking care of her. All this was documented on a time chart that was filled out daily. Giving feed back to daughter on her mothers health and behavior through the day. Toward the end I transitioned to hospice care of Kathleen before I had to leave her care because we moved from the area. I moved from Kansas to Jacksonville 18 months ago. I loved caring for Kathleen and helping her connect with her past. She loved to dance so I would play the big band music and we would dance around the house. It kept her moving and I tried to keep her mind engaged. My goal was to make her last days as pleasant for her and her family as possible while she was in my care. My goal in caregiving is to give my next family pleasant and personal care.
