About Katherine

I have always loved taking care of people and helping them. I have worked as a assistant in offices as well as being a personal assistant. Since a young age, I have always had an respect for the elderly and enjoyed helping neighbors and family with tasks or just hanging out with them and learning from them. I am very patient and understanding with everyone I meet and know that each person has a process. I love taking care of people because I want to be in a world where people care for people because it is the right thing to do. I also understand that one day I might be in a position where I will need help, I would want someone like me being there, kind and accepting. This is a passion for me not a job, I am proud of that and I enjoy my work because of it.

Since I was a young child I was raised around my elderly family and I loved to help them walk or just do fun things with them. I babysat at the age 9, I just always had that trait in me to take care of others. I took care of my aunt at the age of 17 I had never had training to do any kind of caregiving work but I learned as I went along. For 9 months I cooked for her, I cleaned her wound, drained the bags that were in her incisions, med reminded, bathed her in bed, washed her hair in bed, I changed her in her bed, cut her diabetic toenails and assisted her to and from dr appointments. My aunt suffered from hepatitis C and diabetes. That's how my journey of becoming a caregiver began. I went and took a home health aide class at Castro Valley adult school and got hired at my first company. ComForCare Senior Services in Castro Valley ca. I took break for 7yrs to be a stay at home mommy in 2012 and now I'm ready to get back to work and doing what I love and that's helping others who are in need of help.

My name is Judith. I'm a CNA since 2014 and a caregiver since 2012. I first wanted to be a doctor but changed my mind and I'm now trying to be a nurse and in the meantime I'm gaining experience in the field. I like being a caregiver because I serve people while making a big difference in their life. I help people who really can't help themselves and knowing that makes me feel fulfilled. I'm really proud of how much I've learned in a short period of time. I've learned a lot from everyone around me: colleagues, nurses, families, patients, etc.
