About Yolander

1. I am a great caregiver, because i love what I do. I am very patient as well as compassionate. 2.Being a caregiver gives a person a sense of worth, you are helping others do things that they can no longer do by themselves. 3.My personal achievement that I'm most proud of is taking complete care of my home-bound father for twelves years by myself. 4.I have what many people has described as an old soul. My parents had me at an older age, so I grew up around older people and they became the center of my life. I have worked previously as a CNA, QMA, Pharmacy Tech and now as a Home Health Aide.When not working I am attending church or shopping. I walk two miles everyday as the weather permit, and visit the sick and shut in.
