About Carol

I was ask by several families to care for a elderly family member, and enjoyed it greatly. Being a caregiver, it rewarding on many levels, from being a helping hand to a feeling of personal satisfaction. I have raised three children, and adopted two special needs children with a multitude of medical needs, cared for mother and father in-law during their elderly years, including daily personal needs to medications, doctor appointments, and just being there for company. I am a certified nursing assistant, Medical assistant, and a Endoscopy technician, all have given me much experience dealing with different types of medical equipment, and emotional needs. I am a licensed foster home for the State of Texas, and have been married for twenty one years. Included in this package, I am CPR and first aid certified, and both are current.
