Personal Statement

Caring for older patients is medially and psychosocially complex. Having the skills and expertise to address these challenges while enhancing the well-being of those I care for is very rewarding . I enjoy providing the best possible care to my patients and their families.   My aim is to keep my patients' functional and independent in the community.
