About Linda

Hi! I'm Linda Michelle Derbonne - a 55 year-old single woman. I've been in the caregiving industry for many years. I have one child. His name is Christian and he is 18 years old. He is in college in Monterey California. I'm very proud of him! I am currently an IHSS worker for the county of Santa Cruz (25 hrs per week) & Santa Clara (14 hours per week) My background has been checked and cleared by the state of California. I am a live-in caregiver. In addition to that I care for my mother in Santa Clara County 14 hours a week and work 4 hours a week in a Convalescent Hospital. I'm a very happy and patient person and I love being a caregiver. My live-in client has become verbally and physically abusive towards me and other members of her family. I am looking to replace that position.

I have many years experience looking after the elderly and disabled in their homes. I specialize in those living with Alzheimer's Disease, early onset dementia, Parkinson Disease, as well as keeping elders company with walks, playing scrabble, or other activities. Families employ me to assist when needing those extra set of hands to help with everyday things to staying with family members that need hands-on care such as bathing, assistance with dressing as well as companionship and running errands. I own a car with a clean drivers license. I have excellent references. I am a committed, loyal person with sound judgment and high ethics. I have worked with several local home care agencies that require background checks, fingerprints, and all other necessary documents to work as a certified caregiver in the state of CA. I have these documents with me. My pay is dependent on the job description and hours required for the time I am needed. Let us see if I can be of service to you and your family. Best, Meherbani
