I BECAME A CAREGIVER BECAUSE THIS IS MY PASSION. I TOOK CARE OF MY BEAUTIFUL MOM AND MY BEAUTIFUL DAUGHTER WHO HAD SPECIAL NEEDS. MOM WAS DIAGNOSED WITH ALZHEIMER'S , THE THREE OF US LIVED TOGETHER. I WAS HONORED TO DO IT !!! WE LAUGHED EVERY SINGLE DAY,LAUGHTER IS MEDICINE. MOM PASSED IN OCT. 2014, MY DAUGHTER PASSED IN FEB. 2015. MY LIFE WILL NEVER BE THE SAME. NO MATTER HOW FAR GONE A PERSON IS MENTALLY ANYBODY AND EVERYBODY WILL RESPOND TO LOVE, THIS IS WHAT I LIVE FOR !!!!! TOOK CARE OF MOM FOR ABOUT 8 YRS, AND MY NIECE WHOM I ADOPTED WAS WITH ME FOR 18 YRS. I DIDN'T SEE IT AS WORK, IF I COULD DO IT ALL OVER AGAIN, I WOULD, NO REGRETS AT ALL. I MISS MY BABY AND MY MOM SOOOO MUCH. I'M A KEEPER, I'M NOT BRAGGING ON ME BUT I AM BRAGGING ON GOD. IT IS MY HEART'S DESIRE TO BRING JOY INTO SOMEONE ELSE'S LIFE. MY MOTTO IN LIFE IS IF I CAN HELP SOMEBODY THEN MY LIVING SHALL NOT BE IN VAIN. IT IS AN HONOR TO SERVE SOMEONE IN NEED !!

Im kind genuine and very dependable . I Also Love working to help others in any way shape or form it gives me such joy and fulfillment to see someone smile laugh and often just the look of pleasure they sometimes have when you've helped them . I am proud as well as very fortunate enough to be raised by two awesome grandparents and when they were going through their transitions,I was more than happy, willing and honored to be by their sides so they would feel comfortable cared for without denying them independency . this is also why I became a caregiver and if any family would allow me,I will be as careing and helpful to the best of my ability to do the same.

I became a Caregiver after over 27 years of being a Certified Nursing Assistant and Patient Care Tech. Although I enjoy working in LTC facilities, Hospitals, and Rehabilitation facilities I really enjoy the ability to give one-on-one care....it is very personable. I pride myself on the care and attentiveness I share with my clients. I am CPR certified, am knowledgeable in gluecose care, Catherter and colostomy care. and again I have worked in the care of the elderly over 27 years.
