About Linda

I've been a caregiver for a long time. It's more than just a job I go to everyday. I love it when a person can stay in their own home, where they are comfortable and feel secure rather than be admitted into a nursing facility. I believe that people heal better and do better in their own homes but many times, without help, they are unable to stay at home. Some need more help than others and I never push but rather see how much they can do for themselves and be a standby-assist where necessary. I do for my clients what they can no longer do for themselves.

Hello, My name is Pavielle my Personality traits that help me be a great caregiver is my patience im a mother of 6 so it comes naturally with the daily tasks. Im also a very compassionate. I also have a great sense of human as well. When I was 23 my mother was diagnosed with breast cancer and I was with her every step of the way as her caregiver which made fall in love with the caregiving field because I love to help others. To be able to be the person that someone accepts help from is an honor because I know it's often hard to accept help. I have achieved many great things in my lifetime but my greatest achievement is being 35 and in great health.

I am a people person and love to work with people! I am very dependable and I am a very fast learner. I listen to the needs and concerns of the individual(s) that I am taking care of (working for) and I try to take care of everything asked of me. I address concerns immediately and try to resolve them (or ease them) to the best of my ability! I love to have fun. I am a home body, I don't party. I am excellent with children and children seem to really like me. I can cook, clean, give medicine if needed, swim, go to the park, take children to extra curricular activities, give baths, and put to bed with a bedtime story if that's what needed. I've done it all!!
