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 was a blessing to have during this hard time. It was nice having her watching over my father and giving my mother a little time and space.

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.

What makes me a great caregiver I will say that I really care about people I tried to listen to what their needs and wants are and try to provide them with the best of my ability. I'm a caring loving person I believe in treating people the way you want to be treated, I became a caregiver when I was 13 years old taking care of my grandmother and her friends that was Eastern star members. I would go to their homes and prepare their food and take out the garbage and clean their homes in the summertime I found a lot of joy in helping them. The most thing that I enjoy about being caregiver is being there for someone that really needs me, listening to their stories, providing the care that they need. It gave me great joy to know that I am need it and want it. My personal achievement is to start my own group homes for the homeless, for the children, and for the seniors, and for the mentally ill. I want to see if community their work together stays together I think everyone needs each other to make this world a better place to live .
