Charlene’s Bio

I am an engaging and pleasant companion, kind, thoughtful, reliable and organized. I have Red Cross first aid, CPR & resuscitation training as well as counseling experience.
I have cared for terminally ill individuals and those struggling with dementia.
Families find me respectful of their needs and I will relieve a good deal of pressure and anxiety from your shoulders.
I assist your elderly parent with basic needs, getting dressed, making meals, accompanying them shopping - and when they are no longer capable, doing it for them.
I take them for medical care, assist them to order and take medications, help with basic house-cleaning and brighten their days with my physical presence and conversation (if wanted), or reading to them, and running errands. I am a writer by profession so if your elderly parent is someone who is engaged with the world and wants interesting conversation they will find it in me.

review of Charlene

Charlene has been providing companion care on a regular basis for my elderly mother of 88 since September 2013. She is an intelligent, courteous, reliable, and thoughtful person who has been of great assistance to us. She provides thoughtful notes every week on my mother's activities, overall health, and mood. I find her to be proactive, helpful in terms of organization, astute at identifying issues and problem-solving, and genuinely interested in my mother's well-being. She is also patient and understanding --particularly important as my mother can have a challenging and mercurial personality. I highly recommend her.
