About Victoria

Hi, my name is Victoria and I am interested in being a caregiver. I recently graduated from Loyola University of Chicago with a Bachelor's of Science in Nursing. I have been a private caregiver for an elderly client with Alzheimer's disease since August 2015. However, he is being moved to a memory care facility and I wish to continue working as a private caregiver. I am passionate about caring for others because I find fulfillment in helping others.

One of the reasons that makes me who I am as a caregiver is the compassion that I have in my heart for my clients and their families. I am a person of integrity, honesty, dependability and concern. It's about giving of myself to my clients and having a sense of the quality of life concerning the lifestyle they have. When I come into their presence a smile comes on their face. I will show the passion, give the encouragement, and hope they will have the confidence that I will know exactly what to do concerning their plan of care. I became a caregiver because of my mother's influence. Listening to her talk about her clients was interesting and heart warming and sometimes I felt sad and wanted to help, so I did! The rewards of being a caregiver is caring for those who cannot care for themselves or just needing a little help. Always understanding what care consists of at all times regardless of the situations and circumstances whether it's to assist or just HELP. I love what I do as a caregiver because I have a compassionate heart.
