About Caroline

My name is Caroline Tupouata also known as Lownii. I've been a Caregiver for almost 5 years. My mother (right picture) has been doing this for over 24 years so I pretty much followed her steps and caregiving has turned into something that I really enjoy. We both work together, she's pretty much my back up if for any reason I cannot work a certain day. Most times we both are interviewed by families who are looking for reliable and trusth worthy to work with and do our part to get our work done the right way. (You can find her at Luseane Lavaka thru Carelinx as well). I love what I do, caring for the elderly is like caring for my own family in which I treat them with much care and respect. I love music and love to entertain the elderly playing guitar, and piano for relaxation. Some clients don't prefer it, which I do not mind. I recently attened University of Phoenix in Livermore, but due to this economy I had to let it go and continue looking for a job to support myself and my family. I am currently working on getting my CNA. I am responsiable, hardworking, trust worthy and reliable.

    I am a 61 year old lady and an older mom with a daughter (16 yrs) and son (23 yrs). I've been doing caregiving for over 20 years. For the last 2 1/2 years, I worked with clients with Alzheimer's and I feel very comfortable in working getting their needs met, while helping them feel safe and reducing anxiety. With becoming a caregiver, I had just finished my first semester of R.N. school when my mom and first husband both died of cancer (25 days apart) and I was needed to care for my father as his grieving made him unable to care for himself. I then, to assist me with my own grief, started to help care for others, first with hospice, then went on to caregiving for people in their homes. I love caregiving because helping people (especially older folks) brings joy and comfort to me. The trust that clients and families give to me is humbling and rewarding. Again, working with clients who have Alzheimer's takes a special place in my heart, but I love helping anyone in need. If you will try me out as a caregiver for yourself (or loved one), you will be happy and very satisfied. I have letters of reference and am happy to work with you....rest assured everything you wish/need accomplished will be done in a timely, professional and loving way.

Very caring and compassionate with others. I am understanding of patient's needs and willing to do whatever it takes to make them as comfortable as possible. I myself had the experience of difficult situations and my goal is to satisfy patient's needs. I am currently enrolled in school to get into the nursing field. I love the medical field and am always willing to learn more. I understand and have empathy for family members as well as patients as this can be a difficult time for both.
