About Char

I have been caregiving for nine years I have had the pleasure of working with some very wonderful clients with a wide range of various needs both Physical and mental. I attended a local college and received an EMT degree and had the privilege of working on an ambulance for about two years voluntarily. I thoroughly enjoy helping people and try to be a good assist as much as possible. I work well with others and consider myself a good listener with an open mind. Caregiving for me is almost a selfish act because you get so much enjoyment and self gratification out of it. Thank you for your time!
