About Tonya

I have been working in senior care and healthcare since the mid 1990's while in college. My experience first began when volunteering in the Adopt a Grandparent program and as an Activities Assistant in a Pittsburgh Nursing Home. I was married to a minister for 20 years and had many great experiences with the elderly in the church and home setting. We moved to Carthage, MO and I became a certified CNA and CMA. I've experience with nursing homes, assisted living, in home care as well as private clients. Through all of this I have truly found a love and compassion for the elderly population! I have also assisted in the care of my own mother and moved back to this area in November, 2019 to do so.

I cared for a 100 year old man in his home 40 hours a week. He has alzheimers and uses a walker for mobility. I prepared his meals, dressed, bathed, cleaned his home, did laundry, assisted with medication and more. He was unfortunately moved in a long term care facility due to declining health.
