About Me
I studied Paralegal and enjoy it however, when my own dear Mother was diagnosed with cancer in 2003, given only a month to live, without hesitation, I instantly signed up to become her personal Caregiver. She lived almost 2 more years and during that time, I learned many aspects of the care industry. It was a difficult job at times but I am grateful I was able to spend that time with my Mother and provide the best possible care she so much deserved. When Hospice came in to help me, I learned even more and realized how important good care is to the client and their families. Soon after my mother's passing, an acquaintance of ours was diagnosed with Parkinsons and I was asked by his family to become his personal assistant and head Caregiver. I worked with the client and his family for 5 years until his passing. When caring for others, I feel fulfilled and know I am doing what just comes natural to me. It's very rewarding.
