Liz’s Bio

I took care of my mother until the age of 102. I have a good understanding of the needs of elders. I also taught life skills to senior citizens. I presently oversee the care of the grandfather (84) of the family that I babysit with. I am a former school teacher and also worked many years a social service agency. I believe I have the compassion and social skills to be a companion to an elder. I can drive him/her to doctor's appointments, take them to their social activities, give them their meds, read and play games with them, take them shopping, to the movies, the park, etc.
