About Gerda

Also educated in early childhood development, I felt very comfortable and drawn to seniors and started working as caregiver in 1995. From there I worked as CNA in nursing home in Germany. When our facility opened a memory care I was selected and given classes in dementia and Alzheimer care. I worked in memory care in Germany until 2009 when I moved to Savannah GA. My last job in the US I was a medication manager in a personal care home until we moved to Hawaii last month. In my free time I love spending time outside, love hiking, running, swimming and now snorkeling.

I wanted to become a caregiver because of my grandma. She's getting old and can barely do things on her own. I would go to her house everyday and make sure she is okay , needs help or just taking her places she needs to go . Once I started to get older I knew by helping her that there's a lot of people just like her that are out their that need help too . I love to help people and make life for elderly people easier by knowing they can have still some independence or assistance with people that can't do everything on their own .
