But it all made sense. During the last two years of H.S Gilda volunteered in senior homes, from there her love of the senior population grew. After H.S she got her degree in education, but her love of seniors was calling her. She became a Certified Dementia Practitioner and Certification in Gerontology; working as a Director on a Memory Care Unit, with 20 years of experience. With her love for her parents, seniors, and years of experience she was the right person to take care of her mother after her dad passed in 2008. For 6 years Gilda and her mom lived together. As her mothers health started to fell she was there to see to her care. Making sure medication was in order, taking her to doctor appointments,
providing meals, etc.

One of her biggest joys thus far is working with the Alzheimer’s Association. In 2007 she started a Healthcare Consulting business with the leading of her mother/ colleagues. To help caregivers with placement, services, how to deal with the stress of being a caregiver, Medical/Medicare questions, etc.
