About Joan

I have always wanted to work in the caregiving field, ever since my sister-in-law passed away from terminal cancer at the age of 29. The daily care she required was not something just anyone could provide. The compassion, patience and dependability that a person needs to help sustain their life's functions for as long as they desire is crucial to the well-being of both client and family. I am reliable, compassionate, trustworthy and patient. I am experienced in monitoring a patient's vital signs, temperature, pulse, blood pressure, and respiration. I am supportive of the family's rights and responsibilities as primary caregiver. I am a professional in all aspects, yet still can humanize and humorize situations. I am most proud of raising three children to be bright, beautiful, well accomplished young adults.
