About April

I'm a compassionate caregiver. Very loyal I enjoy caring for my clients. Each client is different, their personalities, their demeanors and their habits. I became a care giver because I am outgoing, very dependable. I am dedicated to their needs. I enjoy people. Kindness and attention is important to care for someone's loved one. Their needs come first. I am prompt and and very honest. I have handled money in the past as well. I like learning about the clients. their ways, their habits, what they enjoy, what they do not enjoy, just getting to know them as well. I think my greatest achievement is getting the clients to trust me in my care and that I'm there to help them in any way.

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.
