After being a stay at home mom for 20 years I figured the next step should be to help out the elderly. I have been a caregiver (certified) for over 15 years now and absolutely love it. There is nothing more satisfying than seeing the smile and or relief on someones face when they have someone to help them. Whether it is to cook them a meal, help pay bills or just go to the grocery store so that they dont have to. My greatest work was working at the Hospice Care Center for over 2 years. Working with whole families in their time of sorrow was so rewarding. I recently became a grandmother for the first time and love spending time with him. I love doing jigsaw puzzles with my clients or just sitting and listening to their life stories. I am highly trained in all aspects of care giving. I am able to provide short or long-term care (up to 48-hour shifts. Private Duty Nurse Delegated Caregiver Available. I'm available one time or long term as you need.
