HI, my name is Nicole ( Nicky) & I specialize in private home care as well as hospital after care. Becoming a caregiver was an unexpected twist in my life. At the age of 41 my best friend was diagnosed with Colon Cancer & the journey began. You are immediately part of a team; patient, family, doctors & yes the disease. Hospice, was what I learned and experienced next. This is where the most important work comes in, nurturing. When being with another person is all you can do. After the loss, there was no way to go back to pushing paperwork. My first clients were so much fun, two sisters in their late 90's both with Dementia. They loved walking to the park, they even liked the work out equipment at the park. They could actually wear me out there & of course when we would get home, they'd immediately forget that we'd already gone and want to go back, I knew physically they couldnt, and that's the only thing that saved me, it was funny. Finding humor in any situation, keeping the atmosphere light with a charge of calm energy, listening and picking up on non verbal cues, also extremely important. I moved to Fremont CA to help assist with my own grandmother's care. My family all pitched in which gave me the time & opportunity to start working with Carelelinx & three fabulous families over the next three years including the beginning of Covid. Now I'm new to Nevada and exited become a part of your team. I bring energy, calm and ability. Experienced with: Dementia, Aphasia, Parkinsons, mobile, not mobile, autoimmune and arthritis issues, pain management. Also post operation: including, plastic surgery recovery, Mastectomy, Bbl's, Mommy Makeovers, Masculinizing Chest Surgery, face lifts, and nose correction. I've been there. POSITIVELY! My Name again is Nicole, Im 48 years old & Im dedicated to making every day, the best we can make it.
