About Sherika

I became a caregiver because as a child I would volunteer with the disabled/elderly. I would help feed them and walk them and from that I loved it. I love doing this because I feel like it's a way to help someone whom can't really help themselves. I was raised by my grandmother who was my world, and because of her I begin to work on a school bus dealing with disabled kids. I was there for 14 years. Once I stop doing that I began to work with Disabled adults at a work shop. Here I taught them to read,cook ,arts and craft you name it we did it. From there I began to work with them in their homes, cooking, bathing,cleaning, dressing, and assisting them with help on the toilet. I truly find this to be a blessing ,I love it, I just love it..... I am a parent of 7 and I love kids and meeting new people. My last client was attached to me, I would bring him home with me because he loved being around my kids and they loved him. This is just one job I really love doing, I would not trade doing this for the world.
