About De’Ebra

I'm currently 24. I graduated 2017 from a music/business college in Pasadena ca. I have my Associates degree now. I'm currently have a cleaning business and I also am a caretaker for children including my twin sisters whom have autism. I love helping people and serving my community, especially people who are elderly, less fortunate, or disabled, that's definitely one of my passions! My mom has an agency for adults who are disabled and she has been doing this since before I was born. I learned from a very young age how to take care of people who are mentally or physically I'll, or disabled by certain experiences I've had with her clients. I also helped take care of my grandma years ago up until she passed from cancer. Shortly after when my grandpa was sick I took care of him up until I left for college. When I graduated college he got sicker, So I back in Oakland take care of him and unfortunately he is niw deceased. I also took care of my mom while she was battling cancer and she passed a few years ago, she was my grandpa's original caretaker but I took over after she passed. One of the best achievements I'm proud of is saving my grandpas life by changing his diet and staying on top of his meds, he almost passed in December of 2017, he did a whole he did a whole 180. The doctors gave him a certain amount of time to live but he did surpass it. He wasn't walking or talking, and being tube fed. His conditions were diabetes and congestive heart failure, but my sister and I did research on his condition, hired him changed his got him in physical, and speech therapy. He eventually was able to stop the tube feedings and eat regular food. Since I know a lot about health and certain health conditions that others might not know about I like to share my knowledge and help save lives the best I can. Some of my dreams are to own multiple businesses serving the community and to be a singer.

I'm currently a caretaker for my grandpa who is 79 and will be 80 in January. He has to have around the clock care so my sister and I live with him. I usually do the day shift and she does the night. We started taking care of him earlier this year because he almost passed due to congestive heart failure. He is also a diabetic, and is in the early stages of dementia too so we give him his medicine and his insulin everyday. We also bathe him, he has his own chef so we prepare a menu for him every week, but if his chef doesn't come we prepare healthy meals for him. Since we've been taking care he's done a whole 360 he's walking now, he's able to talk, and he's not being tube fed anymore. This wasn't an easy job especially with the condition he was in, but he's back to good health, so if I'm capable of that I know I would be a great candidate for this type of job!

I can say I am a good caregiver because I love what I do. I want helping other individual and giving the best care I can share them. My profession and being a caregiver molded me to be a strong person and love the work I do even in times of heavy and strenuous workload. I can give you testimonies and documents about the cases I handled. Let other discover who you are.. As I mention earlier I like to be a caregiver because I touch lives of people, especially the elders 100 percent I can make them feel that even in their last stage of life there are still people who can let them feel that they are important. The greatest achievement I have was able to send my daughter to a good school because of caregiving. Even though our work is tiring at the end of the day a client will tell you and will say....'THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR EVERYTHING YOU MADE ME COMPLETE. For me this are acievements.
