About Sherry

I am a great caregiver because I'm a very outgoing person and compassionate with a big heart for the elderly for they hold special place in my heart. I actually was a Nanny for 5yrs and when she started school I wasn't needed, but the family set me up as a caregiver with a friend of the family. She was 94 yrs and was a sweetheart with spunk. That's how I began my caregiving career. I enjoy taking care of people I'm a very nurturing person. It comes natural for me. I've learned a lot about myself doing this job. I learned that I need to be thankful every day for my good health. I've learned how to take care of catheters, feeding tubes, suction machines, colostomy patients, paralyzed patients, stroke patients. I took care of my Mom who had COPD until she passed and I worked night shift with another patient while doing that. Then When that patient passed away I started with another. Then I finally ended up having to take care of my Dad which I'm so fortunate I could. Now that he has passed I'm ready to start back caregiving for others. This experience allowed me to care for my parents who I loved with all my heart and so thankful that I could.

I have been a caregiver for over 10yrs. Unfortunately, my Dad became sick so I took a leave of absence to stay with him. He just recently passed away so it’s time for me to go back to work doing what I love best. I took him to dialysis 3 times a week and doctors appt. I bathe him, fed, gave medications took care of personal hygiene.

I took care of a male about 70yrs old due to a stroke it left him partially paralyzed, with a catheter and a feeding tube. I took care of his personal hygiene, medication, feeding tube, catheter and doctor appts , along with light housekeeping. His wife has Parkinson’s so I assisted her when needed. I stayed with that family until he passed away. All of my clients . I do not like switching from patient to patient I am a very loyal person and I stay employed until they pass away. This may sound strange but I consider it a privilege to be a part of their life and I love this type of work.
