Jodi’s Bio

I have had the opportunity to get to know my maternal grandparents before they passed.  My grandmother was stricken, very badly, with rheumatoid artheritis.  She could barely care for herself.  My grandfather fell victim to dementia.  This made it difficult, at times, to communicate with him.  Although the time was short, I would not take back any of the time that I got to spend with them.  With their passing, I was able to 'try again' - so to speak - with getting to form a bond with seniors.  My work, at the Alzheimer's Center, was not extremely personal, as I was in housekeeping.  From that job, I have learned that some seniors just want someone to sit and talk with them, most of all.  They do appreciate the extra care that we can provide - with meals, housework, errands - but most seniors just want companionship.  I feel that I am a patient listener.  And this will allow me to provide for them, that feeling of friendship.
