About Iva

At the age of 16, I knew I had a passion to care for the elderly. At 19, I organized a youth group and once a week we visited nursing homes. I had a special love and concern even at a young age. Years passed and I found myself a few years ago applying for a position at an assisted living community as an Activity Director. I was hired on the spot and the families and coworkers will vouch for me. I changed so many lives because of my passion . I was determined to make our wonderful senior citizens live again and get excited about life again. It was truly the best experience I've had. I had to resign so I could pursue my calling and career in the Gospel /entertainment industry. I still do this currently, but I do have availability to care for our senior citizens. I absolutely love changing peoples lives/days by simply encouraging and motivating them to live again.

I am happily married for going on 10 years and between my husband and my own children we have 7 beautiful children who's ages range from 13 to 30 years old and we have 4 beautiful grandchildren. I am a very patient, understanding, caring, laid back individual and I love serving people! God gave me the gift of serving people. I love people and it brings me joy to help people in anyway I can to make life a little easier or more pleasant for them. Life hasn't always been easy for me, but my faith in Christ has brought me through it all and made me a stronger person and helps me relate more to others. When the pandemic started my 75 year old mother-in-law moved in with us. She suffers from depression, spinal stenosis and arthritis. I realized how difficult life can be for her just to do basic things sometimes. She also struggles with technology and knowing how to fill out paperwork, pay bills, etc. For the last 2 years I have helped her with all these things and it brings not only a smile to her face, but it gives me a sense of purpose. So that's what lead me to looking into becoming a part-time caregiver.

Hi. My name is Becky. I have been a caregiver for over 20 years and still love it. I have a heart and passion for working with the elderly. I love helping them with their daily lives, chores, (helping with bathing, dressing, light house cleaning, cooking and feeding. Medicine reminders or giving medicine to them)and keeping them active. I have worked with clients that range with nothing wrong they just wanted companionship to ones who have dementia, and on hospice care. It makes me happy knowing that I can help them and help their families and giving them a break when they need one. I understand being a caregiver is a hard job and can be overwhelming at times for families. If I can help them out that is what I want to do. I love hearing their stories and about the old days for them.
