Hi a little about me, I'm 38 and also a mother of four great big kids married as well. One of the reason why I became a senior care aid is because I'm a people person and have a great personality. I love being with are seniors just cause there old does not mean they cant do the same as us. I have a few years of senior care on the side i cared for my grand parents and my husbands senior parents as well they no longer are with us but hold them in my heart. I and certified and have 75 hours as well as other certifications with me if need. If you hire me i care for ur seniors as they are my own family.
