About Idania

I had been working in the medical field for about 10 yrs. I have experience from doing reception, caregiver, CNA, and working as a Medical Assistant. I love interacting with seniors and I love helping them in whatever they might need. I am responsible and I am a very friendly person, positive in everything and all challenges life might bring. You might ask...why want to do caregiver now?...well, I'm currently enrolled for nursing classes, I still have a 1 1/2 yr to go and as a caregiver, I will be able to work doing something I love doing and also will be able to have enough time to attend my classes.
