About Paula

As the spouse of a disabled combat veteran, I am uniquely positioned to bring a level of compassion and understanding that I believe give me special abilities to go above and beyond in the care that I provide to my clients. As a teenager I was introduced to the duties of a home health aid when my grandmother was struck down with a terminal illness. Years later, after having worked in office administration for many years, I decided to go back to my roots and devote myself to the care and assistance of those who can be particularly challenging for health care professionals. Though I have cared for clients of different ages and needs, I am blessed to have a particular talent with people suffering from dementia and Alzheimers. I consider the role of a caregiver to be much more than simply providing basic care. I enjoy learning a client's personal preferences, challenges, and what brings them enjoyment. I believe quality companionship and positive emotional support are vital to the caregiver/client relationship.
