About Mercedes

I am a very loving, caring and conpationate person. Very determined and willing to learn more every day. I have done home care in the past and I can honestly say it's the only thing that has brought joy to work. The feeling you get when you have helped someone's life become that much easier is an unexplainable feeling, words can't explain. I have at least 8 yrs homecare experience as well as a certificate in homecare.

I first became a care giver 15+ yrs ago,I like the fact that i can help someone with there daily living skills and this way they are able to stay in there homes and not a nursing home or hospital.My personal achievement is the closeness that comes with this line of work, and if you have a good relationship with the family that is what make this line of work special to me.
