My life has been blessed by the people I have taken care of over the last three and a half decades. Four were my children, one was my Mom and the other two were a friends Mom and another friends' Dad.
The last three lived with me in my home full time 24/7.
They each had their own bedroom with the ability to make it feel like home.
Alzheimer's was the need that brought them to be part of my family.
They each started out being able to take care of themselves but as their memory issues progressed so did the amount of care I needed to give to them.
I know it is a cliche' to say that more was given to me but it is so very true from these wonderful people that shared their lives with me and at some times with my children before and after they were grown and out of the house .
Each person became a family member and where I went they went.
We all have something we love to do and this is my something.
In my home I offer 24/7 care, Adult Day Care and Respite Care.
In your home I am able to offer hourly care and at times some week end care.
I do not have a background check on this site as I do not give out my SS# anymore since having it hacked from an online source.
On the state police site it will do a check for you and I have no problem with you doing this as I would do so as well if I were looking for someone to take care of someone for me.
References will be provided once we have talked as I don't want to give out these names online.
I do apologize for being so cautious but in this era of putting too much info online I prefer to error on the side of safety.
Please call so that we might discuss what will work best for you or your loved one.
Have a wonderful day,
