About Wendy

I had a wonderful experience as a child with awesome grandparents. As I got older and became an adult I cared for each of them at some point. I enjoy listening to their life lessons and respect them for their sacrifices. I have alot of experience with Alzheimers and can listen to the same stories & questions over & over. I like being able to make their day, wether it be reading to them or stopping by Krispy Kreme and bringing them their favorite doughnut. My proudest moment was when I was a caregiver for a stubborn, hard to get along with kind of gentleman. One day his daughter asked him why he loved Wendy so much? And he replied, "because she loves me and doesn't have too." I am happily married to my high school sweetheart of 32 years. We have 2 adult children and 2 granddaughters. .I was a stay at home / homeschooling mom for 20 years. We are enjoying our empty nest. I am just happy with life.

I care about people and especially older people. I know what it means to be loved and cared for, such as family and friends. I was given the talent of caring and helping others and to be able to allow an elderly person the blessing of living in their own home is rewarding to me. I'm a widow of three years and looking for a job that I can live comfortable witching my means and I wasn't getting paid by the hour in this last job, barely scraping by and I want to keep caregiving but make a rewarding happy life for myself so I can be at peace and less stress. I have references of older people on my church that can tell you all about the live I have for older people.

1.I like to alleviate patients pain while making their lives comfortable whenever I can.I believe that when you take good care of others the same will be your portion. 2.I like the fact that I can bring a smile to a patients face and make life easier on them and their loved ones. 3.An achievement I am proud of is that of a patient remembering me when I've moved on to others when they made a great recovery. 4 I am a compassionate person whose desire is to help others when i can to bring a smile to others.
