About Cheryll

I am concerned about my client well being, I treat them with respect, I am attentive to their needs and I develop a good relationship with the family to gain the knowledge of my client likes and dislikes. The reason I became a caregiver is because my sister became il with lung cancer & I did not want her to be scared or alone I did not want her tao feel like it was a death sentence but a condition that could be treated. I wanted to make her feel as comfortable as possible. I wanted her to know that I was there for her and I didn't want to just tell her I love her I wanted her to see it and feel it. and I know she did. Now I am caring for my mom who has dementia, congestive heart failure and diabetes,. and I am holding on tight to her. its just gratifying to know that you can make some one's day brighter by something as simple as a smile, a meal, a good disposition, or just companionship. I love it
