Hi, I'm Angela!

I have a special place in my heart for caring for our elderly. I am compassionate and a great listener. My goal is to treat my clients the same as their loved ones would care for them and their needs and safety are always my first priority. To bring even a little bit of happiness to them and try to engage them as much as possible in conversation or whatever they like to do is my goal. My clients have been various ages from Hospice care patients my age to full and partial care clients to as old as 93. I did my time in the Medical Office and it is not my forte, helping those who really need it as well as their families is where my true abilities lie and what I find the most fulfilling.



My top 3 skills as a caregiver are:
  • Compassion
  • Dependable
  • Great caregiving technical knowledge


I became a caregiver because:

My reason for becoming a caregiver was because in my capacity of Medical Assisting in a Doctors Office, I was often presented with patients who were elderly, living alone either with their family out of state or unfortunately family who wasn't involved in their care. I have always had a special connection to my patients, some of whom I am actually friends with long after leaving the Doctors Office. I lost and took care of both of my parents at different times in my life and being a caregiver simply just makes me happy and feel accomplished that I am truly doing something good for someone who needs it. I love the interaction and conversation while they tell their stories of days gone by and we look at pictures of them in their younger years and to make them smile even for a minute makes my day.



Outside of work, my hobbies and interests include:
I love to read, listen to music. I enjoy cooking shows and love to cook both old family recipes and trying new things, and not ashamed to admit even soaps at times and some of the other mindless entertainment that makes me laugh on television. Also enjoy gardening, growing my own herbs sometimes successful and somtimes not. Not a huge Sports Fan but do enjoy watching Hockey and Figure Skating.


My proudest moment as a caregiver has been:
I think my proudest experience as a caregiver is the bond I have developed with every one of my clients. To me they aren't just clients, they are like family. Some of them I continue to see as friends for a visit here and there and the smile and hug I get when I see them is the best compliment to my ability to be an amazing caregiver.

Christy P.
Angela was always so caring, sweet, and gentle with my dad, and her reassuring nature and optimistic attitude helped me too. Often times I felt at my wits end, but knowing how much Angela cared about my dad, and our family in general, always perked me up. My dad and I both loved her! She is a person who gives more than is expected of her, and she will go out of her way to help you.

Kathy F.
My sister had been ill for quite some time and was in the end stages of cancer. My family and I were at the point where we could no longer take care of her at home and desperately needed help. That's where Angie came in to our lives. We were referred to her by someone who had used her services so we contacted her and she promptly responded and came to the house. She was kind, caring, compassionate, efficient, professional, and had a quiet strength, all of the qualities you would hope for in a caregiver. Even better, she immediately connected with my sister! We were so relieved once she came in to the picture. We called her our "angel" and felt that it was meant to be that we found her in our time of need. She was instrumental in helping us deal with those final days! We will always remember and appreciate her for that.

Linda L.
We first met Angie when she was worked in our primary care doctor's office. After she left there, we continued to say in touch with her since she was so very nice and exceptionally kind to my mother-in-law. She frequently stopped by just to visit mom and pretty soon mom began to ask us to invite her over more. We began to hire Angie to help take care of mom when she was undergoing wound care since my husband and I work full-time. She would administer medications, tend to the wound. help mom with her bathing, feed her and make sure she was comfortable and safe. Recently, when we went on a 5 day vacation, Angie moved into our house and took excellent care of mom, AND our 4 little dogs. She made all mom's meals, sat and ate with her and they would talk for as long as mom felt up to conversing. She did all mom's laundry, made sure she got all her medications (of which there are many) and tended to her every need with the utmost love and care. And the most important thing is that my mom REALLY loves Angie. Angie has totally spoiled us now in terms of having someone take care of my mom.

John S.
Angie became know to me as an assistant in my personal doctor’s office. I would later independently hire her to provide care for my mother who was recovering from age related issues. My mother required assistance of a skilled and sensitive nature. I have had several caregivers in my employ and Angie’s work has stood out. Her responsibilities included grooming, bathing assistance, medical monitoring, medication assistance including administering shots, meal preparation, bed making and emotional support. In addition, she demonstrated a willingness to be flexible with scheduling and proved to be always dependable. As important, my mother developed a close relationship with Angie which made her situation much more manageable.

Carole N.
I've known Angela for many years. She's funny, thoughtful and compassionate. Her sunny smile has a way of making you feel better instantly! I know she stayed by the side of a dying friend for over a year. Making Kathy's passing a little brighter. I've observed her in our travels, helping hold the door for handicapped or infirmed people with her usual cheer and good will. I trust her integrity & honesty implicitly!

Tiffany N.
Angie was highly recommend to me by a trusted friend. She couldn’t have come at a better time to help care for my Mom during a most difficult time. Angie went above and beyond what I would expect from a private care giver. I was very particular when it was time to find help and Angie exceeded all my expectations. I highly recommend her if you are looking for a trustworthy, kind, professional care giver that can handle the most intimate and critical situations with ease.

Karen G.
When I needed help finding someone to provide care for a client of mine AND her elderly husband, Angie stepped up and was a godsend. I’ve known Angie from about 2006, when I started working at a small hospital in NJ. We worked together for a couple years, and when Angie moved to FL, I was so sad. Ironically, in 2012, I found myself also relocating to FL, and it was Angie who said “ come here! You can stay with me!”. That’s the kind of friend Angie is. I admire her ambition, and seeing her study so hard to achieve her goals is truly remarkable. She’s certainly an inspiration. I’ve seen, on too many occasions to count, how Angie will go way above and beyond the call to make someone feel better, feel like they matter, and know that they’re loved - especially the elderly. I’m quite proud to call Angie my friend, and would recommend her to care for anyone. Karen G.
