About Charita

Hello, I believe that every lesson learned in life can be used to help someone else. I feel that my willingness to adapt to the needs of our seniors, combined with in home lessons and education, makes me a great Caregiver. After volunteering to help care for my family members, I realized that being a Caregiver is where my heart is. I enjoy cooking, shopping, talking, and overall caring for my clients. One thing I enjoy about being a Caregiver is the endless knowledge I receive from my seniors. Through their life experiences I'm able to learn more about them and what they need. I am registered and have complete Live Scan Fingerprinting with Background Check for In Home Support Services of San Francisco County and The State of California's Caregivers Registrar.
