About Sonya

As a Certified Nurses Aide and private duty Caregiver since 2003 I have learned a vast amount of knowledge in the care giving field. It first started with becoming a mother in 1982 with my two daughters. Then my grand parents became ill so I helped them. I saw what my family went through to find quality and caring care givers for them. Taking care of ill patients and especially seniors is my passion. I treat all of them as if they were my own grand parents and parents. In 2013 my Dad who had Cardiovascular Disorders and Dementia I became his care taker. In 2014 I had to put him in a nursing home. In 2015 he broke a hip and went down hill very quickly and failed to thrive. That March he passed. I also, helped my step Dad while he went through a double lung transplant in 2011. He also had renal failure and I would bring him to dialysis every other day. He passed March 2016. Combined with my "education" of how to properly take care of patients and their need. I also have my personal experience with properly and professionally caring for patients in any capacity. I will close with this one incident I had early when I was a CNA. I went into a patient's room to give her a bed bath. She didn't have many days as she was passing. The feeling I got when I put a warm wash cloth on her face to wash her beautiful face was AMAZING. She had tears coming down her cheek. From the love and compassion I was giving her in a simple act of washing her face just felt so good to her. It filled me with so much love and gratitude to be able to do something for someone that they were incapable to do for themselves. I knew from that day forward this my calling.
