Good day to you. My name is Connie, and I am a highly reliable and trustworthy individual with references (note: not all my references want to be public). In addition, I am always told- I have a warm personality and clients feel comfortable with me, quickly. I'm also a great listener, and conversationalist, a problem solver, a good cook, and I enjoy meeting new people and learning about their life. I have been a caretaker for close family, friends, and clients for most of my life. I am proud to serve my community and their Seniors. My reward is always a simple "Thank You", "You do a great a job", and my all-time favorite is 'Can I keep you forever."
