About Channa

I believe if you are going to care for someone it is important to care about people and what they are going through. Sometimes life gives us changes to adapt to to without notice. This can be difficult when you don't have the proper support. I have cared for both family members and individuals who have become extended family. Through these experiences I've worked with people who have an array of medical issues such as diabetes and dementia, to people who just need that helping hand around the house while sharing recipes. When it comes to being a care giver the love is in the trust that's gained when you've not only properly tended to one's own needs, but when you can see the spark in their eye when you walk through the door. Unexpectedly and to my surprise I was chosen to be highlighted for an article in the newsletter for a human service organization I worked for. It was a humbling experience.
