About Cassandra

Hi, my name is Cassandra but everyone calls me Cassie! I have helped take care of my grandfather, who has had dementia for over 10 years. When I moved away to school last fall, I began working as a direct care worker for a company, but found that I like private home healthcare better. My time with the two families I helped while away at school was amazing, and I was sad to leave them when I returned home for summer break. I have worked extensively with dementia patients, and I have experience with patients who have MS. I am very compassionate, patient, and hardworking and I truly care about the people I help. The thing I enjoy most about being a caregiver is that each person I help teaches me something new, and I love hearing their stories and learning about their lives.

Conway Family
My grandfather was diagnosed with dementia when I was 7 years old. When he was living in his home he required around the clock care, and since I could handle him well, I would spend the night in his home. He's currently in an assisted living home, but still requires around the clock care, so I watch him overnight still. I also help take care of another woman who has dementia in her home every Saturday evening. I'm very good with dementia patients because I have been around it for most of my life.
