About Josephine

I have a great personality and have a positive attitude and faith in the well being of my clients. I am caring, very patient and loving. I have been working as a caregiver/mentor for close to 15 years. As a caregiver, I love bringing love and joy to clients that need tender care and I take pride in knowing my assistance makes a difference in the clients independence and daily living skills. I am 54 years old, and have raised 2 young adult sons (30 and 23 yrs). I am a person of faith, which is a great advantage, as this is what makes me who I am, i.e. patient, kind, loving and having the fore sight to put great value in people, especially those that need help in their daily living.
