About Samantha

I knew from a young age that I always wanted to help people so with that in mind after high School I pursued what I knew I would be good at helping senior citizens through the years I have learned a lot and also through experience with working with agencies where most of the time they just throw you in and expect you to learn everything which was fine with me 18 years of experience later and I've had no complaints.

Samantha helped me beyond belief. She is patient and kind. She helped me and taught me how to take care of myself, but didn't interfere if I wanted to learn how to do things on my own. Please consider this the strongest reference I could make for a caregiver. I was going to try to tough it out myself, but I am so happy I called CareLinx and was lucky enough to get Samantha.
