About Samantha

Hello I am Samantha. I believe I am a good caregiver because I treat my clients as if they were my family. I make sure they know that they aren't just a job to me. I make sure they know I care about them. I became a caregiver because I enjoy helping people and making their lives better. I enjoy knowing that I am helping them stay in their home where they are comfortable and will make the most progress as long as possible. I enjoy getting to know my clients, what they like, their hobbies, passions, and what makes them feel the most comfortable with me being there.

I have a long history of taking care of loved ones from an early age. I come from a family in which my baby brother was born with Down syndrome and special needs and my mother developed cancer later in life, going through chemo and radiation, unfortunately passing away when I was just 15. I was then responsible for helping to raise and care for my two younger brothers at that time. So growing up I became well accustomed to taking care of others and became quite familiar with In-Home Care. I currently work as an ER technician working in a hospital that specializes in Bariatrics and Orthopedics.
