About Joyce

I am a retired Geriatric and Hospice Nurse with over 25 years of providing loving care to the elderly. I am compassionate, dedicated and devoted to those entrusted to my care. I am seeking a position in private duty nursing for an elderly person who is in need of companionship, transportation, medication management, socialization with mental stimulation activities with personal care or nursing care needs. I am Certificated in Spiritual Direction. I love elderly people, reading, laughing, music, and great conversation while honoring their dignity and meaning in life as they age in place. Your family member will be in good professional care when we are together. My hours are flexible and an occasional overnight is available.
