About Gifty

I decided to become a Licensed caregiver, when my mom fell sick and I needed to take care of her. It was quite easy to help out with her day to day needs. Even though she died after 6 months, I know she felt confident that I was part of the team who took great care of her. That is when I knew that I wanted to do this, and bring joy and smiles to all my patients. I love being a caregiver because, it is fulfilling to know that I helped someone today. I helped one of my Clients who had almost given up, have hope again. He became active and started going to therapy again, he eventually walked after 2 years of having a stroke. I am a very positive person, I am always smiling, and I treat all my clients as I would want to be treated,with respect and much love.
