About Elizabeth

1. I always enjoyed volunteering and helping the elderly and disabled growing up in a nursing home and making a difference 2. Helping others and my heart feels good at the end of the day I enjoy it 3. When I worked as an Activity Assistant in a nursing home I was asked to join a family whos family member enjoyed me conducting activities at his final breath as he passed it was an honor and I felt happy that I was able to hold his hand as he went to heaven 4. Quiet, Shy, late 40s who lives alone and likes this kind of job and helping others. I enjoy music, reading, cats, and walking. My passion is to help others stay their homes and for over a year I have struggled to make ends meet and find this type of work. Iam reliable, hardworking, willing to learn, and compassionate. Please Iam in dire need of income and I want to be given a chance to work and stay in this line of work. Iam willing to relocate for a live in position as I need work. My dream is to be a live in caregiver and Im willing to relocate as there is no state budget and home care agencies are not hiring, so Iam willing to relocate to the South Suburbs of Chicago. Please contact me thank you I need the work as Iam not living my dream. Thank you
