15 years ago I was in desperate need of a caregiver for my mother. It was very difficult to find an honest, caring, trustworthy person to care for her. I went through several different caregivers, including a family friend that didn't work out for the job. I ended up quitting my job and caring for her till she died 9 years later. At this point in my life I want to be able to help someone that needs special care because I know the negative impact it can take on the entire family when the care of a loved one is not being met. I think the sick and elderly are at our mercy to care for.

Caregiving is personal for me. In my early 20's I assisted my aunts w/the home care of my grandmother; she required 24/7 care w/things like reading to her, toileting, med minders,meal prep/feeding or visiting w/her. She was diabetic & she was on dialysis at home 3x's a wk, my aunt, who was certified preformed this procedure & trained me as her back-up.I loved knowing she could count on me. I have since learned that I LOVE giving that same type of attention & caring to others....there's a great sense of accomplishment & self respect that comes from helping those with needs. I've lived in ATX since Jan of 2014 1st going to work at a Sr Home Healthcare Svc, gaining both hands on knowledge & up to date techniques & safety procedures. Having prev owned 2 successful businesses, I chose to combine that knowledge with my love of helping others & chose to be a private Caregiver to be able to give more of myself to my clients needs. I have worked closely with my previous clients families as well with physical & occupational therapist & alongside hospice. I have a great, positive outlook on life, a great sense of humor & a heart of dedication. I have great communication, scheduling & organizational skills. I have advocated for the rights & well being of those who needed me to fill in the gap. I encourage health & safety , exp w/Hoyers, have worked w/rehab & experince in Alzheimer's, Dementia, Lewy Body Dementia, Diabetes, Cancer patients & recovery & much more. I insist on open, consistent communication with my clients' family members & make my clients safety, health, mental & spiritual well being my 1st priority. I look forward to helping you & your family feel confident in your acquiring my caregiving services!

After being a recipient of outstanding caregiving services for a terminally ill relative, I, myself developed a an interest in providing home healthcare services as a career. As a result, I became Certified as a Nursing Assistant and Home Health Aide in 1996. Over the years, I have met many wonderful clients and developed an extensive skill-set providing all levels of care, bathing, dressing, meals, medication reminders/monitoring, shopping and transportation. I am also skilled in acute bedside care, including palliative / hospice care. I have gained additional training working in several hospitals in the Austin area, but ultimately returned to my passion, which is providing outstanding care in the a person's own home, thereby relieving the stress families feel when looking for competent care of their loved ones. I truly believe that care provided in the home can note only promote a much better quality of but can actually extend their life, compared to care provided in an institutionalized setting. I remain strongly committed to that mission, and believe I can be a great asset to your family.

I enjoy working one on one with people on assisting them in their daily living needs. My greatest achievement is having worked with a young gentleman post spinal cord injury and am still working with him. He is an Incomplete quadriplegic and he and his family now consider me part of their family.
