About Susan

Hi my name is Susan. I have worked as a Home Health Aide, Caregiver, and Provider for approximately 10 years. I recently became certified as a CNA and have a certificate through the California Department of Public Health. I am very patient and love meeting new people. I am currently going to school and will be graduating in Fall 2020 with an Associates degree in Health Science while continuing my education in Nursing. I have always been a nurturing person and I love to help people if I am able to. What I enjoy most about being a caregiver is that I get to learn a lot from those I am caring for. I love learning from the elderly and children. I am proud that I have accomplished some of my goals into advancing my career and I really love what I do. I just hope that I made a difference in someones life as they did in mine.

I've worked in home health care for 15 plus years. I was trained by the state of California and worked for IHSS for 15 years. I've was a trainer for them ,and have attended several training sessions and classes. I was on the board for counsel on aging. I believe that everyone should have the right too stay in their own home and still receive care I love helping people. I didn't choose this profession it chose me. Ive worked with several doctors and hospitals and all types of disabilities.

1. I became a caregiver through the inspiration of my late mother. She was in a vegetative state for almost 2 yrs. due to massive stroke. Reinvented myself from working in the corporate world (banking) to moving in the healthcare field. It's a different experience where one found joy and accomplishment working with the elderly. My salary rate is negotiable depending on client's needs. 2. Being a caregiver is very personal to me.. My focus is always the well-being & safety of my client. 3. Being a caregiver entails a lot of patience, compassion and experience to be able to understand every client's specific needs. . I try to keep a balance of everything I do to maintain my physical and psychological well-being. 4. I consider myself as energetic, strong-willed and resourceful. In my former job I was the lead CNA supervising 3 caregivers working 12 hrs. shift 24/7 in our client's own home. My relationship with my client & the family I've worked with has been very pleasant. Blessed to work with families that trust my work ethics and the care I provide for their loved ones.
