I became a caregiver after helping a ninety-three year old neighbor for 6 weeks after her eye surgery. She actually lived in my home for that time. Seniors have a lot to offer in a relationship and I truly enjoyed her and her friends. It was a feeling of satisfaction and I continued after with other seniors by recommendation. I get attached to them and give service with the utmost integrity. My most recent senior was a wonderful 83 year old gentleman who has early alzheimer's and has since been placed at a Veteran's facility. Personal achievement was completing an intense course in diabetes care for two days for a client who had diabetes. . Since then I have completed necessary courses in Alzheimer's and in Senior Advocate and CPR/First Aid. I have the desire to serve elders that I know came from love for and respect of my grandparents. I have lived in Palm Beach County for over 40 years, originally from Boston. Excellent references! I have a \"Certificate of Completion\" verifying the Florida Training Course for Companion-Homemaker per Florida Administrative Code 59A-18,009. Have over 5 years of experience. Working also helps me to financially help both of my granddaughters with their college expenses at this time! Looking forward to the next \"senior\" friend/client! I am proud of the achievements I've made in order to better serve them. My best personality traits are kindness and always going above and beyond what is required!
