About Gilda

After graduating from Kaplan College, I started caregiving specifically to keep busy while I waited to be hired as a F/T Certified Medical Assistant. I found such joy and pleasure from helping and assisting those in need of everyday living that I decided to change my profession to being a Caregiver. I'm experienced with Alzheimer's, Dementia, Parkinson's, Cancer patients to name a few. I own a car and have insurance, so am able to drive to and from appointments, shopping and/or outings. Able to lift/transfer, personal care, bath, dress, light housekeeping, meal preparation, feeding and medication management.

I love what I do! I love making a difference in someone's life - if I can make them laugh or smile then I've done my job! If I can get my clients out of the house for shopping, appointments or even lunch then I'm helping them help me! I love making new friends & having everlasting friendships with my clients and their families! For the past 3 years I've been a caregiver for my neighbor's dad (he's 97), I was his morning caregiver (he had round the clock caregiving), I fed him breakfast and lunch, took him to church / bingo every Monday, we did his errands during the week and Fridays we did the library. I really love my job as a caregiver!

In my experience, I have learned that caregiving for a loved one is no easy task for the family. My purpose is to help others in their time of need and to truly make a difference. My initial desire to serve as a caregiver stemmed from caring for my own mother during her time of need. This desire soon solidified and transformed into my aspiration to pursue caregiving professionally. I learned that caregiving involves so much more than standing by one's side and holding their hand. It requires competence, respect, advocacy, patience & attention to detail. Needless to say, it is so much more than just a job for me; it is a chance to become part of a team dedicated to meeting the needs of the client. For me, what is most rewarding is developing a relationship with a client on a one-to-one basis and within the comforts of their home. In addition, I have learned that the client is not the only individual in need of caregiving, but also his/her family and I am first and foremost a guest in their home. During my training as a CNA I had perfect attendance. I am also a Certified Pharmacy Technician. This strong work ethic is of utmost importance to me, because I know that my client counts on me to be consistent and reliable at all times. Attention to detail and ongoing monitoring of treatment adherence is also so critical to my role. Finally, when appropriate, I do my best to embed and incorporate a sense of humor in the work I do. This is because laughter really sometimes is the best medicine. I love nothing more than seeing a smile spread across my client's face. I vow to be one who can laugh at myself and who will laugh with you and your family. I also vow to be someone who will offer kindness, comfort and solace during the harder times. Bringing this kind of compassionate care into your home to enhance your quality of life is my passion, purpose and ultimate objective.
