About Josefa

I became a home care provider after my mother suffered a heart attack in January 2014. My mother receives my help from the In-Home Supportive Services (IHSS) program a federal, state, and locally funded program designed to provide assistance to eligible individuals who, without this care, would be unable to remain safely in their own homes. Caring for others is second nature to me: even animals hold a special place in my heart. I have helped care for 5 younger siblings after my father passed away when I was only 15. I said, “All my life, I've been looking out for other people’s well-being. I am married and have no children of my own, but I take care of my nieces and nephews. At a certain age, people can no longer do things on their own; they need love and attention. I am grateful for being able to take care of my mother who is also diabetic. I’m so lucky that I keep her happy in a place I prefers the most, home. This experience has inspired me to make caregiving my vocation.”
