About Deandrea

I love caring for the elderly. I love to cook. Love kids and animals. Enjoy reading and helping others in my spare time. My grandmother needed a caregiver, so she taught me how to properly care for her. She was my world and I didn't feel comfortable sticking her in a nursing home. So I taught myself how to distribute her insulin and other medications she was directed to take by her physicians.

Grandmother
I helped my grandmother get to appointments via taxi cab. I assembled her hospital bed and wheelchair, prepared meals 3 times a day, cleaned her linens daily, gave her baths daily and also participated in light exercises. In addition to running errands and housework. My grandmother had diabetes, gout, lupus, high blood pressure, meningitis, memory loss, dialysis and was incontinent. I lived in with her and took very good care of her.

Although I have always had a natural ability to help others, I became interested in caregiving and the healthcare field after taking care of my uncle who had cancer. I understood the importance in providing quality care for those in need. As a certified CNA, being passionate in what I do, responsible, empathetic, and self-less are the qualities I am proud to carry. An accomplishment I am proud of is going back to school to pursue nursing and maintaining a high GPA.

I love what I do. I love taking care of people. I'm smart, kind, honest, and a very sweet person. I have been working in the healthcare field for 16 years now and I love it. I'm very well trained in what I do. I take care of my clients as if they were my own Mom or Dad. I'm never late, always on time and willing to do what ever I can to help my client. I have worked for North Shore Hospital for almost seven years now as an on-call caregiver. I enjoy taking care my patients when I am there and I love how their faces light up with a bright smile when I walk into the room. I love listening to their stories. I enjoy all the time I spent with my clients, we have a great time together.
