About Anita

My compassion for the infirmed/disabled individuals both young & old has compelled me to seek my CNA in 1987 in RI. Loosing my mother at a young age made me feel 'helpless' to prevent/assist her in her time of need. I give the kind of care that I would want if in their position/situation. This is fulfilling in various ways as I form relationships w/clients. A unique 'accomplishment' was helping w/hospice in CA in transitioning clients towards readiness for dying without feeling alone/lonely. My feelings are genuine & sincere, I am confident, reliable, and respect the rights of others.
