I am an Independant Caregiver for the elderly and disabled. I have extensive experience in all levels of personal care - from companionship to hospice.
I manage medications and provide direct care and assistance with ADL's, transfers, ambulation, errands and escorts. I cook, clean, organize, do laundry, plan meals, shop - whatever is needed.
I like to keep busy and find ways to be creative. I consider myself proficient in all things domestic. I am a competent cook and I have much knowledge in health, nutrition and wellness.
I maintain current car insurance and have a clean record with the Dept. of Motor Vehicles. I also carry Healthcare Professional Liability Insurance. I have been background checked, drug screened, TB cleared, and I am willing to submit to up-dates if necessary.
In addition - I love animals, so pet care is not a problem. I also enjoy gardening and yard maintenance. My life study of health, fitness and spirituality keeps me grounded, focused and in shape - physically and mentally.
I feel called to this work and I believe that I have a lot to offer. I feel as if I have been preparing for this my whole life.

"I am very happy with the care Shirley provided for my mom. I was especially grateful that she took the initiative to help Mom with tasks that I mistakenly assumed she was doing for herself. Plus, Mom loves her!"
