Gina’s Bio

I am currently working as a senior companion for a 92 year old woman with mild dementia. Prior to my current position I cared for my elderly mother in my home for 3 years while she recovered from mulitple surgeries. By working closely to seniors I have found caring for the elderly is actually quite rewarding. I have two college degrees in Early Childhood Education and Psychology. I owned my private preschool in Sherborn for over 16 years. This summer I decided to close and seek another line of work. I've discovered that caring for the elderly and caring for children requires the same mindset. Both jobs requires extraordinary levels of patience, enthusiasm, creativity, and, above all, a love of being a caretaker.
