I became a caregiver fourteen (14) years ago when I first took care of my mother in law 24/7. She was 80 years old and was suffering dementia. I knew since then that being a caregiver is my calling. Anyone can be a caregiver, but not everyone can show empathy and compassion, and the desire to want to help others. That is who I am. I am very patient and understanding. I try putting myself into the other person's shoes and see what it might be like to ask people for help. As an independent person I am certain, that is not easy. I am very reliable and dependable person. You can count on me to be there for you at any given time. I am trustworthy. You open your door and invited me into your home, it is very important for me to know that you trust me and that I will keep your information confidential. I am flexible, as with most things in life, home care needs may change and unexpected events can happen, I am prepared to go with the flow, being flexible, so I could continue to provide good home care. ... more
