About Emavalu

My first job after having my children was elderly caregiving. I found it easy to work my schedule around my family since it is a 24hr business. I helped in taking care of my elderly grandmother when I was still single. I guess that's where I realised my interest in the personal care profession. With my years of experience in this profession 'Empathy' is what makes me stand out in what I do. Putting yourself in place of who you're caring for and imagining how you would like to be treated would only encourage you to provide caring, compassionate, and dignified care with a great attitude. I am also dependable, patient, honest, and flexible for any change. My love for caring for others is still going strong knowing that it does make a difference in other people's lives. A smile on my client's face would just make my day knowing that I 've done something right.

I was with another client who had dementia for a year and almost five years of a very active 93 year old who was very involved in the community. I do light housekeeping, laundry and light cooking.

    I've became a caregiver because I enjoy helping other people and see them happy, also because I have a child with specials needs. I like to know that I'm trusted to get a job a done plus go the extra mile to make sure my client is happy and satisfy.My main goal while doing inhome support is to not only be a good worker but also a friend.I love to cook, i like working in gardens and love animals.I'm a very compassionate person and I always do extra to ensure the job is done and I didn't skip a beat. Being a caregiver for 19 years has helped me in so many ways, I have worked in Nursing home Facilities, Private Duty, etc. I love what I do in helping each client I've ever worked with. Taking care of people in need that needs my help gives me joy in my heart and it lets me know they need people to work with them that care. I also specialize in special needs adult and children with a variety of conditions.
