I am a warm and friendly person. I enjoy working with people who need care and support - men, women, youth, children, and seniors alike. I took care of my late father who had high blood pressure, diabetes, and Alzheimer's, showering him with love, care, and support until he died. I was glad I gave all of the care, support, and encouragement that I could to my dad. I also took care of my late aunt. When she was dying those with her said that she was calling my name, blessing me for taking care of her. Again, I was glad that I cared and supported her in the end of her life. When I came to the USA, I lived in a house with an elderly couple. The wife had Alzheimer's and diabetes, and I took care of her while living in their house. To show appreciation the couple's daughter helped me get my first job in caregiving at her company as a Direct Support Professional. I worked in the field of direct care at Chrysallis Incorporated for 3 years. I supported the people that I cared for so that they could live fulfilled lives. I am very committed to caregiving - I have worked for three US companies within five years, simply caring for people. I try to do this job with all of my heart, committing myself to rendering the best service with love, respect, and dignity. I believe that working with CareLinx will give me even more opportunities to reach out and make more people happy despite their challenges.
