About Frank

Hello, my name is Frank Tran, I graduated from California State University Los Angeles with a Bachelors of Science in Kinesiology. I have worked at various physical therapy facilities, ranging from outpatient to inpatient hospitals and have the necessary abilities to handle all types of situations. I know how to operate manual or electric wheelchairs, canes, crutches, walkers and have the ability to perform many types of transfers. However, I am very passionate upon helping family members because I believe that movement and caring is life. I chose to pursue care giving because I enjoy working with people and I believe that it has the potential to make a difference in someone's life. In addition, I feel that when I get old one day, I would want also want someone to take good care of me. Similarly, I believe the most enjoyable aspect of being a caregiver is to put a smile on their faces. I believe my personal achievement that I am proud of is graduating from college because it allowed me to develop great work ethics, a sense of reliability, a good morality system, and the ability to show respect for others.
