About Cindy

Caring for elders can sometimes take a tremendous amount of patience, understanding, compassion and empathy while remembering the dignity and respect of the person you are caring for. Care giving is always something that has played a constant role in my life and I truly enjoy and appreciate the life experience, knowledge and wisdom gained from these clients. It's a great feeling to help in the progress of someone recovering from an accident, surgery or even stroke. But even the day to day tasks such as getting someones loved one safely through another day can be extremely challenging and yet the gratitude & appreciation from the family is a great feeling.

Home Care

Mar 1994 - Present
Private Husband & Wife
Cared for both husband (passed 2011) and wife (current ongoing). The husband fell in a construction accident and suffered a stroke while undergoing surgery leaving him partially paralyzed in addition to multiple additional health problems. The wife has a degenerative eye disease that has slowly robbed her of her vision over the years and is now completely blind. Everyday care for him including daily showering/bathing, dressing, ambulatory help (on a variety of levels as his health deteriorated), physical therapy, walking, exercise, doctor visits, toileting, medication. Later stage care escalated to help with eating (later stages), diapering etc. Her care included doctor visits, exercise, grocery shopping, errands, house keeping, paying bills, professional calls, banking, overseeing home maintenance, and help with cooking (was still her passion).

Home Care

Mrs. S
Assisted with care as needed for this very energetic busy lady . My care for her was part time assisting with home chores she was no longer able to take care of such as gardening, lifting & moving heavy objects, pet care, housekeeping, help managing/monitoring medication and portable oxygen as well as companionship. Her conditions included COPD, Rheumatoid Arthritis, undergoing what became a complicated heart valve surgery. I met her in 1992 and always lived relatively close. Her family eventually had all moved out of state although were able to be present upon notification for urgent situations. She passed in 2011 at the age of 91.

Hello friends, My name is Steve and I've been caring for people for 10 very rewarding years. I love being the best friend to people in much need of care. It's truly been the best job I've ever had. I understand that a lot of trust, respect and care is what caregiving is all about. I'm a culinary trained cook, so I can pretty much create whatever is desired and/ or craved. I have my own insured vehicle w/ an impeccable driving record as well. I have had many clients that have been very happy w/ my services, I also have many satisfied families who can attest to my unique quality of care. My hobbies are hiking, going for drives, most sports, definitely cooking, listening to music, reading and watching good movies. I'm an excellent w/ conversations and a good listener as well. It's also very important to mention I love animals. Thank you for time and consideration. Steve AA

$21.00/hour · Laguna Hills, CA
I am punctual, very compassionate about what I do for people who have lost some independence from a life event. Compassion for the family involved to help lessen the burden. I like to tell stories that help the family get to know who I am and I love to hear stories from them as well. I have made Caregiving my Career and take it seriously to become highly regarded and recommended. I enjoy helping the patient and their families keep their lifestyles they have without interruption. I like seeing results so with that being said, I had achieved my series 6 & 63 license (which was a challenge for me) and was proud to present products that would get higher interest with low risk. I also did debt settlements and was happy to negotiate the lowest rate for my clients to settle. I work hard and with compassion whether your my customer, patient, friend or family member because I believe everyone needs help sometimes and I look past any obstacles getting it done.
