i many years of experience in caregiving, homecare, assisted living, correctional, quadraphelgics, trach, gt and much more, I've been doing homecare for over 20 years, im very outgoing, i love cooking, hiking, animals, elderly, children, music. I was born and raised here in the Bay Area and am a retired registered nurse. After practicing in many different areas (medical/surgical, adult advice, school, long term care, dementia) I have found a passion for elder and end of life care but am happy to help anyone.
My goals as a caregiver are to provide a safe, nurturing, supportive and respectful environment for my clients. Patience and a sense of humor are important as life for the elderly is pretty tough. Many are in chronic pain with multiple health issues that also include anxiety and depression .
Rates for level of care that include companion, excise, light housekeeping, errands, meal prep and patient advocacy with MD.

2: Higher level of care is $33/hr with a 3 hr. minimum. Includes incontinent care, lifting and transfers, equipment monitoring and maintenance as well as end of life.
*Above rates are discounted for cash payments.
