About Charlotte

I believe that it is our privilege, honor and responsibility to care for one another, whether young or old. As a young child, I experienced hospital care a few times and a long stay. I was given special care by a nurse who would try her best to give me a few minutes of individual attention, since my mom could not be there all the time. I will never forget her. Especially when someone needs care, due to health issues or a disability, we need to offer them the most compassion and medical care that we can. I love the one-on-one time that is more available with a client, than in a hospital setting. I love making someone whom I care for comfortable and seeing them laugh and smile. Doing something for them that is not in my job description makes me feel that I am able to show more compassion. I attended 18 classes, through the state of Oregon (subjects on Home Healthcare) and received a "Special Recognition) Certificate. It has helped me feel more confident in providing proper and professional care for those I care for. I am a musician, as playing the piano for those in nursing facilities, or hospitals, is one of my deepest pleasures. I am family oriented and this is why I am relocating close to where my kids and grandkids are. I am the type of person who loves challenges! I feel that we should live life to the fullest.
