About Mary Jo

I'm an RN with a current NY nursing license. I have over 30 yrs. experience in various fields of nursing, including geriatrics and psychiatry. I previously started my own foot-care business, which provided in-home foot treatment to house-bound clients for 10 yrs. I'm caring, compassionate, flexible, and have a good sense of humor. I'm particularly gifted in relating to senior clients. My personal interests include reading, playing piano, and travel, which can stimulate conversation with clients, as well entertain them. I can provide excellent personal references on request.

    Vicky Chapman, private employer
    I companioned an 88 yr. old woman with Alzheimer's in her daughter's home for two yrs., from 2011-2013. I provided assistance to her daughter by accompanying the client to doctor's appointments, cultural outings and occasional trips out of town. As she became in need of more medical care, following a fall, I helped coordinate nursing services from an agency and administered some of the needed IV's, medications and encouraged ambulation.
