My goal is to help individuals manage quality of life issues when aging and illness undermine their independence and wellbeing.  I also partner with families, to help them care for their aging or disabled family members.  Various levels of service are available allowing flexibility yet continuity with one professional.  

Care Management includes evaluating care needs, researching solutions, developing care plans, enlisting other service providers and overseeing progress.

Companionship includes personal assistance, enrichment, and friendship.  Time is spent together pursuing meaningful and positive activities as well as practical tasks such as appointments and errands. Clients may be living at home, in facilities, or needing to relocate.
