About Brenda

I became a caregiver because I love working with and assisting people in general especially as one ages. I have been working in the customer care industry for a long time. I enjoy helping someone. It gives me great pleasure. I am most proud of my ability to understand people. My past has been working with 2 Fortune 500 companies and the latest with a 98 year old lady for the past 3 years. I lived with her full time and assisted in all her care from bathing to dressing to meal planning to pet care. We went to doctors together as well as lunch and medication pick up. I maintained the inside and gardens outside of the home in NewPort Beach CA. I am single with 3 children. My youngest is in the Marine Corp. My most recent employment was with a lady in Oceanside CA. Worked with her 5 days a week going to all medical appointments. I was in charge of medications, appointments, groceries and social events. My certifications include CNA ( state certified) RNA and HHA.

Homewatch Caregivers Huntington Beach CA
A Rear Admiral's widow needed full-time care and my employer sent me to interview. We immediately connected. She had a walker then went to a scooter to get around. Eventually incontinence became an issue as well as the need to have assistance in bathing and dressing. She relied on me for everything. We were a team. My reason for leaving was for relocation.
