I started helping my grandparents at a young age. I could relate to them, and would sit and listen to 78 rpm records, w/ my grandfather, and he would tell me stories about the music we listened to. I traveled around the World, w/ my parents at their families,and would have to help them in their needs. In 2000, I started working at Nursing Homes in Boulder, and have continued to this day.
I can relate to the elderly, whether they are male or female. I like seeing them happy and pleased, when I have helped them in any way.
The fact that I have been with various clients for over 6 yrs. continuously, before they have passed on.
I live in Lafayette, Colo. Am a homeowner, am very religiously minded, and am always putting "other people first", before myself. I always think of the aspect of: "how would I feel, were I in the other individuals' shoes?" and how they would want to be treated? Hi! I'm Mary. As a loyal, compassionate, innovative and trustworthy 53-year-old female I look forward to meeting you and interacting with your loved one(s) as needed. Companionship? Hospice? Encouragement? Specialized care? I'm here to embrace LIFE with them at whatever point they are at. Easygoing, calm, and nurturing is my nature, gently firm if called for.
