I've spent the last 27 years providing physical therapy services to all forms of clients. I spent the past 3 years at a skilled nursing facility where I specialize in geriatric and dementia care. In this capacity, I can not provide physical therapy services however it allows me to care for all types of physical limitations. I can incorporate a continuity of care with safety , self awareness and maximize clients full potential.

There's no better feeling than knowing you or a loved one is safe, comfortable, and happy. I know; I was a primary caregiver for two family members before becoming a Certified Nursing Assistant. Helping others is more than a job to me. It's my calling. With more than a decade of experience in home health care, I understand the importance of being warm, compassionate, patient, understanding, competent, reliable, and punctual. During these difficult times, being Covid 19 safe is paramount, too. I am extremely vigilant about precautions, like mask wearing, frequent hand washing and sanitizing my vehicle. I offer part-time assistance with personal care, medication, light housekeeping, errands, and companionship. I also provide hourly driving services for medical appointments, hair salons, or grocery shopping. My rates are based on hours, location and frequency of visits. I look forward to hearing from you and assisting your needs.

I enjoy helping and taking care of people who need it. I love listening to the wisdom of my elders! I also just love bringing happiness and some sunshine into someone's life! I have been a Medical Assistant for 28 years, for 18 of those years I worked in 2 different Urology offices, 5 working in an ENT and Allergy office. I am currently working in a Family Practice office. I have enjoyed working in each office and established a great rapport with the majority of the patients I have encountered, as well as there respect and gratitude. I also worked in Home Health for a brief period. One of my clients hired me to continue taking care of her mother, which was extremely gratifying to know she was so pleased with the care I provided and trusted me to continue taking care of her mother.
