About Juanita

I have a deep compassion to help others who are in need of assistance. What inspired me to become a caregiver was the notion that I could help a person by improving their quality of life knowing that I can make a difference for the better. What I enjoy most about being a caregiver is seeing the expression of relief on a persons face when they know that they are in good hands and they know that they will be well taken care of. One of my achievements I am proud of is I have been a good caregiver for seventeen plus years.
