Trudie has been in a myriad of capacities in the Health Care and Social Services around since 1995. She’s done both administrative work and direct care, including senior citizens, youth, and the mentally/physically impaired.
Provided life enhancing care for elderly couple allowing them to remain in their home. Worked
closely with the husband who deceased May 2017. Per request of family, I continue to support
wife. I am an integral part of family. Over time duties have become increasingly hands-on;
including total management of ADLs and IADLs. I am companion, friend and “life line” (her
words) to this wonderful and active centenarian.
Assisted with care of wife in throes of dementia. Soon assumed total responsibility of non-verbal,
non-ambulatory female from husband to provide respite. While she was unable to speak or walk,
we formed our own means of communication and an impenetrable bond. In addition, I created
5 Intellectual Properties/Trademarks and Patent Pending designs, self-published a children’s
book and began writing extensively. I remain close to husband.
Trudie is extremely patient and understanding with the ability to easily learn and adapt new criteria presented. She has quick and accurate assessment skills of situations. She looks to provide care where needed to all people with the correct support and growth for them to flourish from the care she provides.
