About Helen

I have always been a caregiver at heart, even when I was a little girl; always helping with my grandmas, grandpas, aunts and uncles and everyone for that matter and I was always told I have a caring heart. I love taking care of people, it fills my heart and gives me purpose and is a very rewarding thing to do. Making others happy and caring for them really satisfies my soul. What also comes along with caring for others, is they become your family and become life long friends. My goal to help others is for them to be happy and help them enjoy their life. one personal achievement I am proud of is I was able to help a client who was homeless(in a woman shelter), malnourished and unhealthy gain the proper weight she needed to be healthy, find an apartment and change her attitude about life in approximately 3 months or less. We are still friends today> I love all my clients and treat them with the respect that they deserve. I'm proud and honored to be a caregiver.

What makes me a great caregiver is that I love to help people and socialize with everyone I've helped my grandmother for a while she currently has arthritis also other conditions and it's hard for her to do things that's where I step in and help her I think this helps me become a better person i'm able to care for other people the way I care for my grandmother
