                        About Me
 
Dignity First is locally owned and operated. Not an agency or a franchise. I am licensed, bonded, insured and take pride in providing top quality supportive care services to my clients and their families.
 
  • I have over 9 years’ experience working as a Certified Nursing Assistant, combined with over 7 years’ experience providing private, in-home care.
 
  • My health care experience includes caring for severely ill individuals as well as assisting clients with limited mobility, caring for those recovering from recent surgeries and requiring rehabilitation, as well as assisting clients with severe physical and mental impairments due to serious life changing events.  
 
  • I have widespread experience caring for clients whose mental abilities are declining due to Alzheimer’s and Dementia.
 
  • I have extensive experience with the end of life process; not only with providing direct care, but also with providing ample emotional support to the family members throughout the process.
 
I have found that a structured, nurturing approach to care giving is the most beneficial to my clients and their families. Inclusion, cooperation and communication are key components to my caregiving technique. I work with my clients and their families to create a schedule that gives family members the confidence that they have reliable and trustworthy supportive care provider looking after their loved ones.
