About Adele

What inspired me to become a caregiver was helping a family member with dementia and cancer. At that time I started to realize the need for high quality caregivers, and the gap that currently exists in extended care options for the senior population. After completing a full business career, I have now dedicated myself to the care giving vocation in order to help close this gap for high quality support. I have extensive first hand knowledge, as well as professional training, that I can share with clients and their families who are experiencing what I have already gone through. In this respect I can offer many more resources and skills to raise the level of support being offered.
