About Cindy

I am a happy, healthy, compassionate, loyal, patient, loving person who found my caregiver calling late in life. I am 65 years old and have been doing this for a little over 12 years and love what I do. I started when a couple different neighbors of mine were ill and didn't have any family to help them. I had my CPR CERT so I said why not and when they were doing better I decided to make this my work. (IHSS, CARE.COM, CARELINX) The first client I had was in very bad shape when I met him, diabetes, renal failure, heart failure, living on his own, not keeping up with his meds or taking his insulin properly. I called his Dr. got him on a med schedule and with the right food, TLC and exercise he did quite well. Since then I have had several different clients, one was on hospice and others I took to Dr appts., med Mgmt. , meal prep, errands and companionship. I enjoy my work and I work hard!

through my caregiving experience, i have learned that the people i care for teach me more about myself then i could ever learn anywhere else. i strive to have the people i care for live there life to the fullest, despite there physical or mental limitations. i have worked with a quadreplegic with muscular dystrophy, who was also a "stand up" comedian. Along with seeing a man paralyzed by cerebral palsy, live the joys of his life through poetry ever week. through my life of caregiving, i have learned the only limitations in life are the ones we make for ourselves. we can do anything we set our minds too.
