About Miguel

I became a caregiver because it's a wonderful feeling to know that the work that I do, helps the client to be independent, but also to know that someone is still their to help out when needed. I enjoy meeting new people, and enjoy becoming part of their lives in a positive way. it takes a special type of person to be able to do this type of job. I have worked with children with autism, to disable adults, to patients that have dementia, schizophrenia, to clients that need the extra car and attention. I am certified in HHA, CPR, and A.B.I ,as well as work with T.B.I patients as well I am a caring person that just like to work with people, I enjoy seeing smiles, and sometimes if need be a Shoulder to cry on. we live in a crazy world, and just knowing someone out their cares for you, may mean the world to someone that has no one or limited family
