About Josefina

Truthfully, I stumbled into caregiving when I was recommended to help someone who had had a stroke. He was 75 years old at a time. I understood a lot about who I am. I am naturally giving, helpful, and very compassionate. I am college educated, good with computers, easy to work with and have good communication and listening skills. Since my first job I have had experience working with the mentally ill and people who are recuperating from surgery. I have been teaching meditation for a couple of years to adults of all ages. A personal achievement I am proud of is the fact that I have understood that helping others is not about me, it's about the person I'm helping…their needs and wants.

    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.
