About Pride

I try to be the best possible caregiver because I believe it is one of the most important jobs there is. I like people and it is a privilege to help them enjoy life as fully as they are able to, especially when it includes helping work toward healthy activity and more inclusion in life and community. I have compassion, patience, dedication, a good sense of humor, am calm in crisis, learn fast and can even help with animal care if needed. (I grew up on a farm.) I'm a pretty good cook. I love books, movies, walking, trying to write stories and listening to people. Achievements I am proud of include raising children, grandmothering, attaining a Bachelor of Arts Degree and being once named Caregiver of the Year. Thank-you for considering me as a caregiver!
