My experience has taught me patience and compassion for individuals afflicted with mental and physical disabilities requiring assistance with daily activities. I am able to handle patients who are ambivalent about their need for outside help and understand the psychological stress individuals face when having to give up their independence and need to rely on others. It is especially rewarding knowing my work is making a difference in people's lives.

Juan A.

$20.00/hour · Whittier, CA
I have been helping seniors with daily living tasks for over 12 years now and I find helping others live happy, healthy, and comfortable lives is the most fulfilling work I've ever done. My family has been caring for families since I was 5 years old. When I was 22 I began working with my mother who has a background in nursing. We provided 24hr/7days per week care for a family friend, and I have helped several other families since, averaging 2 years with every client. I find that my height and strength are valuable assets in my field, especially when transfers and assistance transfering are required. My greatest happiness comes when I'm able to help people still go out and live exciting lives as well as be able to live comfortably at home without having move into convalescent homes.
