Roslynn Tharp - Elder Care Service
Roslynn Tharp, RN of 6184 Summerville Dr, Gloucester has opened an Elder Care Service called Caregivers of the Commonwealth, LLC. Her office is located in the Shops of Hickory Fork Rd, Suite D between Bridgewaters Salon and Spa and the Gloucester Housing Partners. A resident of Gloucester for almost 10 years and an RN for over 30 years. “ I tell people I am in a career transition from the hospital bedside to the community home side to provide stress relief to family caregivers. I have seen too often at the bedside a stressed-out, exhausted spouse or adult child of an ill family member who is trying to provide care for a loved one while at the same time have a life of their own. They do the best they can, but there comes a time when additional assistance is needed.”
As our population ages the need for home-based care services will increase. Caregivers of the Commonwealth provides assistance with bathing, grooming, light housekeeping, laundry, and companionship here in the Middle Peninsula and the surrounding areas.
Please contact me at 804-694-4300 for further details.
