  About Me
As a PSW for over 13 years, since 2004, I believe I have found my calling. I have worked in the public all my life, but find that being able to help people remain in their home (I enjoy mostly home care) the most rewarding. In me, you will find someone who is compassionate, and pays close attention to detail. I feel it is extremely important to build a trust with the clients that I help, and the best way to do that, is to be a great listener. It's very important to make the client feel comfortable, and allow them to maintain their dignity and independence where possible. Working together as a team with the client, and the family will allow a smooth transition into a more vulnerable state for the more elderly, or physically challenged client. I have not come across a situation yet where I haven't been able to get a smile, or a twinkle in the eye of someone I have helped.
My palliative care training has taught me to be sensitive to the care and needs of both client and family. It has taught me to not be afraid of death, but to acknowledge the inevitable, and prepare for it in the best way possible.
