After graduating high school, Linda moved to Los Angeles, California and worked there for 6 years, she was married, and had her first child, Stephanie. Linda and Stephanie moved back to Texas and returned to study nursing at The Baptist School of Nursing. It was here that Linda found she loved working with the elderly.
While studying to be a nurse, Linda worked in the local hospital and found wanted to learn more about the elderly and Brain Diseases. After graduation, She worked in the Neurology Intensive Care Unit as a Licensed Practical Nurse at Harlingen Baptist Hospital for 2 years. before moving to Boerne.
Her goal was to have a Christian place that would help the elderly. Linda now had a new addition to her home, a second daughter Katie. Having built a large and lovely home outside of Boerne, Texas, Linda decided it was time to help out.
She opened her doors to the elderly, especially those in early stages of dementia. “It is difficult on every family members when one member is diagnosed with dementia.” said Linda, “The person with dementia cannot be left alone, and often will need help with just doing the simple chores in life, like dressing. I want to be able to give the kind of care that when the family leaves their loved one with me, they can go on with their needs, feeling comfortable with the knowledge that their charge is in good hands.” Linda believes that good nutrition is very important, and that is why her home serves great custom home-cooked meals and nutritious snacks for her clients.
Linda opened her home in 2002 and has been caring for the elderly ever since. “Opening my doors to our community in need has been more rewarding then I imagined. After seeing a client come to day services and finding a new purpose in his or her life and seeing their families more relaxed and comfortable with their loved one knowing they are safe one is amazing".
