About Richard

I became a caregiver so I could help take care of my dad. I treat my clients like I want my parents treated. I receive satisfaction and reward in knowing that I can help someone do something that they can't do on their own. I am continuing my education to become a nurse. I'm a veteran and retired truck driver looking for part time work to subsidize income while I continue my education. I enjoy caring for those who can't care for themselves. I'm married and have two children at home.
