Hello my name is summer Wright. I'm a very sweet , caring 22 year old with 4 years experience with elders . Alot of my clients love me because I'm very nice, funny , and get a lot of things done around the house. I genuinely care for the wellness of people I am very helpful with all daily activity's of living. Dressing , showering , meal prep , appointments , medication reminding , cleaning , providing conversation and company. I have two great clients at this time but I am moving from New York to Roanoke Virginia June 8 and will be providing care for new clients . Hopefully I will find a place that feels right at home with a client who is very nice, preferably with friendly involved family members who check up and are present when needed.

I became a caregiver to help an elder parent, when she would need more help. It is a good feeling knowing what to do when she needs help. I do like helping people and I have a sunny positive outlook on life.
