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.
Caregivers that work non-full-time jobs or irregular shifts can negotiate extra compensation in addition to their standard hourly wage.
