About Sharon

I became a caregiver because I am compassionate and love working with people. Being a caregiver gives much satisfaction by helping the elderly with their activities of daily living or teaching a child simple acts of live. I have been a caregiver for over twenty years and am pleased to have met all patients along the way. I enjoy listenening to their stories such as their careers, where they grew up and there travels. I am a good listener. I was born in Jamaica came here as a young adult. I have two adult children. I am a certified medical assistant and I am also certified medical assistant.

Being patient,loving, caring, compassionate, and highly experienced make me a good caregiver. This is what I have been doing before I came to this country. Out of 6 siblings, I was the only one taking care of my Mom with the assistance of my daughter who is now a medical doctor and now in the university pursuing her masters degree in public health here in the U.S. I feel so much comfortable taking of people either young or old. It is my joy to contribute positively to general care of elderly people. I personally relate very well with my client and their families, that most of them treat me like members of their families. I still have contact with most of the families I have worked for. They sometimes take me out for my birthdays celebrations , some calls on my birthdays, some sends messages on my birthdays. I think this a great achievement, because if I did not do good jobs for them, they will not remember me to give me such wonderful honors.
