I have retired from a hectic law firm and now plan to turn my attention to what really interests me -- caring for and being of service to others. My 97-year-old mother, for whom I was the primary caregiver, recently died of lung cancer.
As well as caretaking, I would be interested in taking seniors to events they might enjoy, such as the theater, movies, museums, etc. I would enjoy reading to them or with them, or simply talking, playing cards, doing jigsaw puzzles, taking walks, whatever they would like.
I am patient, gentle, compassionate and involved in animal welfare so pets would never be a problem.
Thank you for your consideration!

Skills & Abilities
Diana S. helped as an in house caregiver for my 93 year old mother. She assisted her with some heathcare issues, light housework with meal preparation and companionship. Diana would do whatever we asked and was extremely reliable.
Diana assisted with care for my 82 year old father over the course of two weeks and did an excellent job. My wife and I found her to be very personable, professional and reliable. My father has dementia and mobility problems, and Diana was very proactive in providing care and companionship. During this time she also assisted with taking care of our two dogs and did a wonderful job with them as well. We would definitely recommend Diana.
Thank you so much for your terrific review. I enjoyed the time spent with your family and hope all is going well with all of you.
Say hi to your dad for me! -- and to the doggies too!
