About Dan

A passion for the elderly is a culture that I grew up inn. We take care of our parents and grandparents back at home in Fiji by way of tradition and their is pride in it. I enjoy talking to the elderly about their life experiences and hope to learn from their wisdom. I see every elderly as if they were my grandparents and I enjoy being around them. Besides the expected hickups with most cases I've come across, I view them as toddlers i.e. they have special needs and require patience and understanding. My warm, friendly and open personality is what most people like. I am respectful, honest and outgoing. I was a bank manager for 5 years before resigning to pursue a dream in the apparel and screen printing business which I am most proud of today. I have established my family business back in Fiji and currently in the States doing research work which has now concluded. I still have a year left and I see a great need in the elderly caregiving sector. With the recent fires that Sonoma experienced, I sense that their is a higher need now for reliable hands to look after elders. I am available and I hope that my hands can be of assistance to those that needs a caregiver. Thanks
