Gretchen Cannady started working for Silver Leaf in 2009 on weekends to supplement her preschool teacher's job. She finds caring for the elderly to be very fulfilling. She believes that as people age, they deserve the very best of care. They have acquired a wealth of experience over the years, having raised families and/or contributed to their chosen careers. They have so much to share!
Gretchen had the meaningful experience of helping care for her mother in her last years. To get respite hours for herself during that time, she hired caregivers from Silver Leaf In-Home Care. “It was the perfect arrangement. My mother received very personalized care, which she looked forward to, and I was able to get out occasionally, to have a little time for myself knowing she was in good hands.”
Gretchen's hobbies include cooking, gardening, playing several musical instruments, dancing, writing and reading, among many others.
