About Andrea

I love helping the elderly, i feel like they were once so independent and now they deserve quality care, and assistance. What i love about being a caregiver is the fact that im able to show empathy to my patients by assisting them and making them feel as comfortable as possible some of my patients are really ill and sometimes the only thing you can do is make them as comfortable as possible that's something i love to be able to give them.One of my personal achievements would be finishing school as a substance abuse counselor while working full time, i have worked with the elderly for so long that i wanted to accomplish school in a other area in my life to learn about all populations and these others struggle with. Im a dedicated person, im goal oriented and a passionate individual, i believe that my up bringing has had a positive impact on the Woman iam today.

    Why did I become a caregiver? I became a caregiver because of my desire to help others especially the elderly. My passion and dedication for seniors is very important to me. Nothing brings me great pleasure in assisting people that are in need of some care. My greatest achievement in life are my children. I am a mother of four and a grandmother of six. Teaching my children to respect and help others gives me the satisfaction that when in some giving time I need help, they will assist me just like I assist and care for others in the same manner. I'm not just a caregiver but a friend and if God gave me the patience, understanding and caring way to help others than I am here for that. God bless you and hope to assist anyone in need.

    As a care giver I find the most important attribute is compassion, the second being willing to apply love as if it were your own family member. I have been in the business of care giving for over a decade and I take pride in the service I provide. I am a people person and love to talk and am always interested in new business ventures.
