About Louisa

My first experience as a Home Care Aide was back in Fiji when I nursed my sister from a car accident that left her bedridden. I took care of her and her kids until she was able to walk and take care of her and her kids. This was when I first took to the job of Home Care Aide. It really is not a job when you love what you do. I have years of experience and have great qualities regard to be a great Home Care Aide. I am compassionate, reliable, respectful, kind, hard working and excellent at what I do. For me being able to care for the elderly and making their lives as comfortable as possible is rewarding and satisfying. This is my calling in this life.
