About Debra

Having spent decades of my life caring for my elderly patients and I love every minute of it, Such an honor for me ! Being a trusted caregiver for many years with patients from all walks of life in various stages in life; sometimes with physical/mental decline I offer care that you can trust. I have great compassion for others in some of the most vulnerable times of their lives when sometimes other family members cannot due to their own family and lives. I give those families comfort in knowing that I will do a good job taking care of their most precious loved ones. It was in nursing school that I knew being a caregiver to the elderly was my passion. I love that I can make individuals feel loved even though I'm not actual family but in time I do feel like family as they have become like family to me. I know that when I give attention to my patients that they are receiving the BEST care that I can humanly give them, I know without a doubt that I'm doing what is most comforting and safe for them. I am Reliable, Dependable, Honest, Work with Integrity, Compassionate, Always willing to work with schedule changes, and my word is my promise. It make me feel good to know that I can take a load off of family members while relieving stress and pressure because we know that caring for a family member is exhausting, I've been there and know. I take no shortcuts in the care of my patients always treating others as I would like to be treated and for me that's as if they were my family.

I am a wife, mother of 2 amazing boys, and a nurse. I now stay home with my youngest son because my oldest son is away at college and my husband works crazy hours. I absolutely love taking care of people. It is my passion and what God put me on this earth for. I don't want to work all the crazy RN hours right now, I want to be able to be with my son as much as I can! If you are looking for a compassionate, trustworthy caregiver you need to look no further! I have so much experience with elderly patients. I have had multiple stroke patients, low or no mobility, dementia, diabetes, and the list goes on. I am cpr certified as well. I treat my patients like I would my own family. I come with references and it would be an honor to help with your loved one and take some of the pressure off of you! I hope to hear from you very soon

I have been a caregiver since I was 17 years old! My love for helping the elderly started when as a child my grandmother had dementia. I have cared for amazing people in my 33 years as a caregiver! I've gotten the best advice and life lessons from my clients! Each one holds a special place in my heart! I was born and raised in Greenville Ga and lived my married life in Madison Ga. I moved to Nashville after my husband passed away in 2018. My soul purpose on this earth is to be a caregiver! I have always known that!
