About Tamara

I became a caregiver in 1989 because I have always been drawn to the elderly since a very young age. When my grandmother was in a nursing facility, I would visit her neighbors along her wing. I love being a caregiver because I can make a difference in other's lives, and help family to understand the needs of their loved ones. Keeping them home makes all the difference in their dignity. I feel I have achieved a reputation of being a kind, loving, compassionate, caregiver, who loves her patients and cares for them as of they were my grandparents. My passion in life is to care for others and make a difference.
