About Kelly

I'm very passionate and dedicated. I enjoy taking care of others. It's not only a job but it's a job I can be proud of at the end of the day. If I can help just one person I feel like I've accomplished something good. I like listening to their stories. I might be there to help them but at the same time these cars clients have taught me something in return.

    I am attentive compassionate, able to multi task and attend to the needs of the individual in a timely manner. I am trustworthy and very empathic. What I love most about being a caregiver is seeing the smile on the patient's face when they know their in good hands. I became a caregiver because I enjoy the one-on-one interaction and making a difference in the patients life no matter how big or small.

    Hello, My name is Christina. I've been a caregiver for just over 10 years now. I love my job. I love getting to know someone on a very personal level and trying to make life alittle easier, if only for a little while. I've always wanted to work in the medical field. After getting some wisdom from some family that had been in it for many years, I decided to start with my Certification for nursing assistance first. I've done facility and private care for many years each and love the impact that I have had and equally received from my patients. I've done almost every skill that you can think of, from driving to doctors apt. to staying over night for end of care, and everything in between. One of the things Im most proud of, in regards to caregiving is becoming 'part of the family'. I love that I can give the family members a sense of security knowing that I am there for thier loved ones.
