I am a devout Christian. Caregiving is my passion. I have been a Nurse/Caregiver for 30+ years. I am 8 credits away from an R.N. degree, though not currently enrolled in school. I have contributed to a successful nursing facility through excellent/professional care, referrals and word of mouth. And that, I am proud of! Due to having a burden for people, I am always compelled to help those in need. As a Caregiver, I have always assisted children and elderly, the like. I was a Therapeutic Foster Parent for 8 years, having had the toughest cases to meet me at my doorstep. The challenges brought sweet rewards. I originally became a Caregiver when I assisted my mother with activities of daily living for mentally challenged, teenaged boys. It was so natural for me, that I immediately knew, this was my calling. I do my very best to meet all the needs of each individual, thereby, going above and beyond the call of duty. I have never been in trouble, of any kind. I never have: drink/smoke/profanity/drugs/alcohol/diseases/partying or anything of the such.
I am very active in the church. I am very passionate about serving others, and even randomly assist my sister, who has MS, when she visits TX. I have a broad range of experience from MS, ALS, MSA, Cancer Recovery, Autism, Parkinson, and so much more!I've been helping others for 31 years, non-stop! I'm here to help your loved one live AT home, not IN a home! All of these aspects mentioned above, and many more, makes me an awesome Caregiver! I believe I am a great caregiver and I stand out from the rest due to having cared for my ill father for the past 16 years. I have experience working with dementia, alzheimers, bipolar, schizophrenic, para/quadriplegic, strokes/TIA, CHF, blind, deaf, COPD, along with a number of other conditions that individuals suffer from. This is where I gained the passion for caring for disabled & geriatric patients. My main goal is keeping my clients smiling and the most comfortable as possible. I enjoy caregiving for the simple fact of caring for others; I have a huge heart as well as the compassion and patience to go along with it. I enjoy the companionship, wisdom and conversations with each and everyone of my clients.I love being a caregiver!
