About Virginia

I became a caregiver because I saw the need that senior citizens required as they aged. More, seniors are living longer lives and have various personal and medical needs today. I want to be that person who can reach out and help them with those needs. The joy I give to the care seeker when the day is through. That I have been asked by a care seeker in another agency to specifically have me as their caregiver. I am a woman in my 50's and have been doing caregiving for about 7 to 8 years, I have a calm, easy-going personality and have a professional attitude with caregiving but I'm laid-back in many ways.
