Windchime of Chico Cared for by Giselle Thistlethwaite of Chico, CA

I work as a Caregiver at Wind Chime Senior Living of Chico, California and I LOVE MY JOB. For me, the residents are my family. I have experience working with residents who have Alzheimer's Disease and Dementia and before living in California, I worked as a nurse in Peru. I really enjoy assisting seniors!
