About Dee Dee

I have been a caregiver for the past 10 years. I have been a nanny on and off for 10 years for children from 3-11 years old. I am a mother of a 10 year old. My main employment now is senior care, I started off working for my elderly neighbor so she could stay home and not move out of state, I still care for her. I now work with an elderly dementia client. Caregiving comes natural to me. With my great listening skills, compassion, understanding of the persons needs and feelings makes me a great asset. When I work with people who need my care, I have an understanding that they need my help, my patience, understanding and my constant smile on my face. Also my love for animals, being a mom and a volunteer, and love of cooking all contribute to me being a great caregiver and why I chose this profession. Caregiving is a rewarding job and I absolutely love it!

    I grew up watching my parents taking care of my grand parents , I guess it comes naturally to me doing the same . Taking care of other gives you that inner satisfaction which is hard to find in other work settings. I'm proud to be a Nurse . I'm registered nurse from a foreign country working as certified nursing assistant with extensive experience working with seniors with different healthcare needs and trained to work with a lot of diverse cultures and settings. http://www.thequint.com/2015/aprhttp://www.thequint.com/2015/apr/07/female-gender-mutilation-indias-well-kept-secret/07/female-gender-mutilation-indias-well-kept-secret
