HOME CARE SUPERVISOR
Brenda’s passion for caregiving extends to individuals of all ages. She has over 30 years of experience in both housekeeping for private residences and also in her career as a childcare provider. She knows the sensitive balance required while working in someone’s home and is committed to fostering this seamless harmony.
Brenda’s path into senior caregiving began with her family. After her mother-in-law developed dementia, Brenda immediately began helping to ensure that her mother-in-law retained the best quality of life possible. She continued this care until her mother-in-law’s passing and knew that she wanted to care for other families in addressing the unique needs of the aging process. At Brookdale Medford, a senior living community, Brenda continued her care work with elderly clients and cherished the connections she developed.
A mother of five, and grandmother to nine, her family is her greatest source of joy. She is happily married and enjoys traveling with her husband. While they love the beauty of Southern Oregon, they are always planning their next trip to the coast.

He is very experienced with all aspects of activities of daily living, in addition to light housekeeping. Client health and safety is his top priority and he holds an In-Home Care Medication Certification through the Institute for Professional Care Education.
