About Candice

My care-giving interest began with my brother as he was born with Cerebral Palsy and he was 10 years older then men. Moving to Arizona I became his full-time caregiver for 16 years until his death this past February. I have experience with using a Hoyer lift, wheelchair transfers, bed baths, feeding, medication reminders and meal preparation. Care-giving is my chosen field and I am dedicated to providing quality service and meeting the needs of the client. I am a Certified Caregiver, First Aid/CPR Certified and have a Level 1 Fingerprint Card. I am seeking part time work on Tuesday and Wednesday only, from 8am - 6pm in the Avondale, Goodyear and Tolleson areas.

When we put my father in senior living I soon realized they do not care for their patients, he died in 3 months there. I vowed to do what I could to help other seniors to live a life in their own homes. I love being a caregiver because I have a connections with elderly, I enjoy their stories and life lessons. It gives me pleasure to make them Happy. I am most proud of my Jess that I took care of, the family wanted to put him in a home and I stayed with him, took him on trips new adventures. He did finally go to a home when I moved in July. I miss him he was my buddy.. I think the best thing about me is I have a lot of love to give, I have always been a caregiver in one way or another. From the time I was little I always loved helping others and give 100% of myself to making people safe and happy.
