Hello I was Virgie companion-caregiver from April 2017 until February 2018, I enjoyed working with and taking care of Ms Virgie, she was fun to be around and a very sweet lady. There had been times when I stayed with her for a week straight and all day, I really got close to her as if she was my own family, she made me love being a caregiver even more ,we went out with the facility, out with her friends, did a lot of activities, and spent the holidays together as well. She will be truly missed. I send my condolences to the remaining family and her friends, may you all heal and grieve in peace.
