About Carole

Became passionate as a Caregiver by first caring for those close to me in my personal life: my mom, her sister, and the mother of a dear friend. Began caring professionally in 2014 with various agencies in the County of Santa Cruz. My dedication and patience help me to be a great caregiver who works hard at making life easier for those requiring home care. It is my undying belief that all people be treated with kindness, dignity and respect. My [10-year old] background consists of Adult and Senior Care for those with dementia, Alzheimer's, cancer, Diabetes, heart disease, ALS, Parkinson's, stroke, epilepsy, developmental disabilities, as well as those recovering from surgery or illness. I am certified as a Companion Care Aide (CCA), as well as hold certification in CPR and First Aid. I have an even-tempered personality which allows me to remain calm and make prudent decisions during a crisis.
