Featured Caregiving Story

Robinson Cared for by Renee P of Winston Salem, NC

Being first Certified in 1986, I have always had a gift of caring for people. Ms. Robinson has been one of the best caregiving clients I have had. We enjoyed being together traveling to appointments and food shopping. Her family grew to love me and included me in some of their family activities. When my time ended it was bittersweet with tears. But I still call her and check up on her. I hope my next clients are as easy-going, respectful and peaceful as Ms. Robinson was and is to this day.
