I was fortunate to have a close relationship with all four of my grandparents. They were my biggest fans when I pursued a career in theatre. As I struggled through my own health challenges, I studied the healing arts. I now enjoy being a grounding presence for seniors I am matched with through Duet, which incorporates my creativity and continues to be very rewarding.

I value the work I do as a Caregiver for Duet. The positive and unique relationship between client & companion is most important. As an artist and a yoga teacher, I nurture these elements of harmony and productivity, and offer this balance to the seniors I support at Duet.

I’m a Jamacian New Yorker with a passion for the arts, I’m deeply devoted to music, and performance art. I’m also a natural caregiver, having supported my Father from an early age. This role instilled in me the chance to cultivate a great deal of patience, compassion, and open mindedness which I extend to the seniors I support with Duet.

I was born in Portland, Oregon in a family of writers and cooks. A lover of stories, my artistic practice fuses documentary and fictional narratives, often produced in collaboration with others. Working for Duet has given me the opportunity to meet incredible clients and get to know New York in novel ways, while participating in the joys and labors of caregiving.

I am a North Carolinian by birth, but love the LIFE that NY has to offer. New York is the only place that the elderly can enjoy attractions by bus or subway. Duet matched me with someone who enjoys the adventure as much as I do. Whether it’s dinner, theatre, or people watching, we make it fun.

Testimonials

Young female caregiver sits with elderly man in Central Park
He kept my mother engaged and vibrant and provided an anchor that she had been missing

The team at Duet set us up with several great options and my mother immediately chose a young man who became a real saving grace for our family. Nick supported my mother’s independence with grace and good humor. He kept my mother engaged and vibrant and provided an anchor that she had been missing since my father’s death. He genuinely understood her, and that was a great gift to her and to us…

They laugh together, go on walks, watch the news and discuss it

Since 2017, Duet has provided my 93-year-old Aunt with male aides who are so helpful, kind and caring that she is thoroughly enjoying these last years of her life. They laugh together, go on walks, watch the news and discuss it, listen to music, attend lectures, and see movies. In addition, they accompany her to the offices of her various doctors and comfort her when she’s feeling down about her near-blindness, frailty, and age. She prefers creative people, and the two aides who are currently with her are extraordinarily creative as well as devoted…

Her caregivers treated her with dignity and respect all along the way

It’s easy to think that in the big city you are going to get lost in the shuffle. This couldn’t be further from the truth with Duet. Calls were returned promptly and the quality of caregivers was exceptional. It was a difficult journey to see my mother age and develop dementia. Her caregivers treated her with dignity and respect all along the way. I will forever appreciate that I found Duet and had the support I needed…

I recommend Duet to anyone seeking a hybrid between an aide and a friend

COVID-19 had shut down most of the world and nowhere was safe, especially nursing homes. Thankfully, a close friend of my mother’s referred me to Duet and their amazing team of caring professionals. Not only did the companions assigned keep my mother in the apartment and city that she loves, but they kept her engaged, safe and Covid-free. I recommend Duet to anyone seeking a hybrid between an aide and a friend…

The level of skill and expertise… is simply impossible to find anywhere else

The level of skill and expertise, matched by the compassion and comprehensive care of their companions, while dealing with highly complex dynamics, is simply impossible to find anywhere else. The constant support and efficiency of the agency staff makes them as joyful and easy to work with as the companions themselves. Duet sets a new industry standard of excellence that I never knew was possible…
