Ingrid has over 25+ years of business experience. Her parents were business owners, and she learned the importance of one on one customer service, work ethic, and family values from an early age. Having a diverse background in business led her to creating and operating her own personal service business, Affordable Personal Services and Pet Care, LLC. Ingrid is dedicated to being the voice for the voiceless. She offers book keeping, shopping/errands, cooking, non-medical services geared for the elderly and full service pet care. Ingrid’s background as a veterinary technician for 20 years, and having raised animals her entire life, lends expertise for pet services from Pocket Pets to Ponies. What makes Ingrid’s services unique is her passion for keeping elderly clients independent and safe in their homes, keeping them with their beloved pets, and overseeing the care when they can no longer care for them themselves. She knows the benefits of relationships people have with their pets, especially for the elderly, and end of life patients. Ingrid has volunteered with many types of people and animal organizations, been a board member for a non-profit, and organized various fund raising events.
Ingrid began caregiving with elderly family members in her twenties, with friend’s family members, and having a grandmother with Dementia. This began her journey while seeing the need for advocating in the nursing home and healthcare system for those that cannot speak for themselves. This led her to become a trained Hospice volunteer with her beloved therapy dog “Alex”, and in 2016 became a Certified End of Life Doula. An End of life Doulagiver gives Ingrid the opportunity to offer experience, and give direction/support with end of life choices, which goes in conjunction with Hospice Care. Ingrid enjoys living a healthy lifestyle with her pets on a small farm in New Haven County CT. She grew up in the area, and attended Paier College of Art.
