Profile

Taking care of people is my passion. I have been a caregiver for most of my life. I am the oldest of 4 in my family. I grew up helping my siblings and babysitting at church. I started as a caregiver in home health three years ago and decided I loved it so much I would go further and that's when I got my CNA license last year in 2015. I have had the opportunity to work in hospice center and doing hospice care at home. I have worked in pediatrics, surgical, orthopedic, rehab, and neuro trauma. I have special skills in Alzheimer's and dementia care. I love working with elderly and I feel it is an honor to be there to help them. My goal is to help anyone in my care to feel as comfortable as possible. I know that every individual Is unique and I am confident that I can accommodate to everyone I care for. I have the compassion, empathy and skills needed to be an outstanding caregiver.
