Janiece Futrell

Office Assistant

Chancey Taylor


I wanted to become a caregiver to care for people when they are unable to care for themselves. The best part of my job is the trust and relationship you develop with each other. My favorite activity to do with my client is helping him pick out things he likes on our weekly shopping trip and sitting on his patio, talking about the places he used to go and things he used to do. I am a friendly and caring person who loves to put a smile on a person’s face. I feel that if I can make you smile, then I have made your day. In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my husband and children.
