After spending 7 years as a caregiver to my mother, a triple stroke victim, my cousin, who was dying from an auto-immune disease, my aunt, who had Alzheimer's, I opened my own caregiving operation in Southern California upon their deaths. I then moved to TX and took some time off before signing on with agencies. I have been working steadily for two years. Caregiving is not just a "job" to me - it is my calling and my passion. The qualifications listed on this site speak for themselves. I have also been trained to be a caregiver for the memory impaired, have my CPR/AED certifications, and can even a ssemble/disassemble a Scooter and a wheelchair! From my perspective, it is my compassion, empathy, humor, and willingness to do whatever is needed, above and beyond the usual scope of caregiving, that make me an excellent choice to take superior care of your loved one. I thoroughly enjoy every aspect of this, my final career choice. A bit about myself - I was raised in Dallas, started college here, got married, had a daughter, then moved to the West Coast where we remained the majority of our lives, then my daughter asked me to move to Texas to be close to other family members. While I miss the mountains and the ocean, I am here to stay. Staying busy taking care of others, giving back to those less fortunate than I...these are, to reiterate, my goals, my calling, my passion. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me. I will be more than happy to answer any concerns you may have. In closing, I can say that when it is my turn to face the winter of my life, I only hope to have someone like myself to take care of me. Thank you for reading my profile! Suzan UPDATE: I have established my own company, The Wright Choice. All pertinent information remains the same! ... more
