    1. I decided to become a caregiver after retiring from a corporate job of 25 years and my children had grown up and moved on. I realized I wasn't ready to "retire". The idea of becoming a caregiver sounded like something that would be an outlet for my "nurturing" nature. 2. Caregiving gives me great satisfaction and a feeling of peace and contentment as the things I do to help others means a lot to them. I love that I help people be in control of their lives while ensuring their safety, health and comfort. My personal feeling of well being increases when I am helping others. 3. Something I'm proud of is working with a lady who'd had right hip and left knee replacement surgery. She was fearful of standing, was not doing exercises and was dependent on her husband. I helped her to follow Physical Therapy prescribed exercises to increase her strength, confidence, mobility and independence. After 7 months, she could walk with confidence using a cane and do activities of daily living. She was even able to return to sleeping in her own bed which required climbing 12 stairs. 4. About me: I am a lady who is energetic, healthy, physically fit, very personable and I have a fun sense of humor. I am also dependable and trustworthy. I have two grown kids. I have a lot of compassion and empathy for people I am caring for. I am a great cook and homemaker. I have lived in the Portland area all my life and love it here. I also have a very reliable car!
