About Lucinda

Why did you become a Caregiver? I became a caregiver because I truly enjoy helping people. What do you like about being a Caregiver? Having a family member who is incapable of taking care of themselves safely can be overwhelming for families and to the person. I take pride in knowing I'm able to provide ADL's as well as companion ship for my clients and or residents. What is a personal achievement you are proud of? I once had a client who was very depressed. She was elderly and felt as if she had no say in her life, and no one to care about her. I listened to her and held her hand when she cried. After she finished she thanked me for being there for her. I was proud because my goal is to provide physical and emotional support to my clients and or residents. Tell us something about yourself. I'm a pre-med major, and I am a quadruple threat musician.

    I have always worked In the medical Field since I was out of high school. I have experience in resolving unpaid medical bills since one of my previous jobs was just doing that. Another job I had was working with an eye specialist so I do know about glasses, contacts, optics, etc. I always get the best prices for my family and friends. My mom has diabetes so I always try to make sure she eats right. In fact I had taken nutrition classes just for her. I take ungoing courses because I enjoy learning about health.
