About April

My name is April. I've been a caregiver for a little over twenty years. Taking care of others is a real passion for me. I treat my patients how I want to be treated when it's my time. When I'm with my patient they receive my full attention if that means sitting and just listening to their stories or holding their hand and calming their fears. I bring all my experience and compassion in with everyone I care for.

I've been a CNA for five years. I've cared for elderly clients as well as sick and immobile ones. I have been in the medical field as a Medical Assistant and Phlebotomist for twenty-five years. I went for my CNA license to better understand how to care for elderly and home-bound people as well as to correctly care for my brother who passed from cancer. I am grateful to be able to care for my patients as I care for my family. I've been a Medical asst. and Phlebotomist for over 25 years. *National CPR Foundation
