Alzheimer’s Disease & Related Disorders (ADRD) Care

Those struggling with these diseases deserve skilled, specialized care that focuses on providing as many moments of health and happiness as possible. I have developed intense compassion, patience, and effective techniques for not only supporting the individual with ADRD, but for helping them to thrive and truly enjoy life.

Cognitive Care

There is help for those struggling with normal memory lapses all the way to the final stages of Alzheimer’s Disease. I utilize numerous resources to provide a customizable, well-rounded program of tools and games to stimulate the brain positively. Do you want to learn a new language? Finish the Sunday crossword? How about a technology tutorial? There is never a better day than today to learn something new!

Medication Assistance

Medication Assistance

Taking medications properly is one of the most common and important concerns for a senior. Let me ease those concerns as I am certified to assist with the self-administration of medications in the state of Florida. I will professionally remind and/or assist you or your loved one to take these prescribed medications in the correct manner and with dignity.

ADRD Level 1 & 2 Training

For those companies or individuals interested in obtaining their ADRD Level 1 and/or 2 Certification, I am certified through the Department of Elder Affairs to provide this service. Fulfill state requirements through an engaging, knowledgeable course at a very reasonable price.

THIS SERVICE IS COMING SOON!

Vacation Companion

Live your life to the fullest and include your loved one with you as you do! I will accompany a senior during the trip providing companionship and care. We will plan activities that both include the whole family and ones that are suited for the individual’s health and interests.

Extensive Organization

In a lifetime one easily accumulates both priceless and useless items. If you are ready to clean the clutter from a closet, room, or even a house, then contact me today! I will recommend simple and healthy solutions then perform the organizational duties myself or coordinate with someone who can.
