About Delisa

I started my job is a Care Giver when I was 18 I was taking care of my grandmother who had a stroke from there I realize that my passion was to continue to take care of others I've been doing it off and on for many of years now I enjoy it for one because I do learn from a lot of our seniors with stories of yesterday when I am most proud of myself and continue this even through the times that we are having now I have yet to find a reason to leave the field because I think of these people that can no longer tend to themselves and that was keeps me going

One of the reasons that makes me who I am as a caregiver is the compassion that I have in my heart for my clients and their families. I am a person of integrity, honesty, dependability and concern. It's about giving of myself to my clients and having a sense of the quality of life concerning the lifestyle they have. When I come into their presence a smile comes on their face. I will show the passion, give the encouragement, and hope they will have the confidence that I will know exactly what to do concerning their plan of care. I became a caregiver because of my mother's influence. Listening to her talk about her clients was interesting and heart warming and sometimes I felt sad and wanted to help, so I did! The rewards of being a caregiver is caring for those who cannot care for themselves or just needing a little help. Always understanding what care consists of at all times regardless of the situations and circumstances whether it's to assist or just HELP. I love what I do as a caregiver because I have a compassionate heart.
