Terri’s Bio

I have worked with the elderly, blind, visually impaired and stroke survivors. My best friend was blind from the age of 3, so I am very experienced with visual impairments. I'm also experienced with stroke survivors in companion care, with bathing, feeding, dressing, medication admin., household management, scheduling, counseling, cooking, walking assists, transfers, condom catheters, driving seniors, and other services. My clients, both male and female, have ranged from ages 75-99 for over the past 23 years. I'm reliable and dependable, have a great sense of humor, and a heart to help others be the best they can be. I like to make my clients feel comfortable in their own home for as long as they are able to stay there, with dignity, respect, and honor.
Please email me with your needs so I can help  :)
(Weekend and hourly rates available). Blocks of time negotiable.
Thank You,
Terri V.  :)
