About Theresa

I enjoy and love the passion of being a caregiver because I enjoy and love working with different clients or individuals with different disabilities and/or different health concerns to learn and educate myself about their disabilities/health issues. Being a caregiver attracts me to interact with them one on one and working with them to make a potential difference in their lives. I enjoy being a caregiver as well to increase my self confidence and self worth knowing that someone relies on me taking care of them. My personal achievement as a caregiver that I am truly proud of was helping a client that was unable to walk on her own due stroke. Difficult tasks such as bathing, grooming, personal hygiene tasks and simple tasks such as holding a spoon. Helping the client to overcome the fear of failing or giving up, I was able to help and work with her daily to improve and accomplish the goal of her getting back on track. I am proud to say, the client has come a very long way and therefore was able to walk on her own using a walker, minimal use of wheelchair as well and perform all tasks without any issues and with someone by her side monitor her for any health concerns that may arise.

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.
