About Holly

With my love of helping people - placing dignity and respect for my elders, and my never-ending passion for learning into practice, I became a caregiver. My first ever client thought me how to take one's time in remembering where we come from while cutting the grass with scissors. (Note I lever let them cut the grass themselves, but they really wanted even blades - I wanted them to smile.) My person had Althtimers but didn't let that stop them from living as freely as possible. Currently, I help children who are wards of the state go into kinship homes with a family caregiver, but I miss caring for someone myself and would love to do so with an individual while I work with the children too.

Montabella Homecare
Cared for an older woman with the onset of Alzheimer's. I had to make sure she didn't cut the grass with scissors, so we went outside and I would bring the scissors or gardening tools and we would look at the leaves and flowers to decide what needed "cutting" before the lawn guys came. Chores included doing dishes, laundry or washing clothes by hand, cooking or helping her cook, sweeping, vacuuming, and making her bed daily. I helped her go through her memories as there were days she just wanted to go through her jewelry just to make sure it was there and tell stories about them. Watching the news and talking politics or gossiping was a fun pastime for her. These were not jobs or chores, such as dishes or clothes, these were privileges I was able to witness. I kept a binder full of notes for her daughter of what went on during the day. I loved working with my lady.
