About Yolanda

I became a caregiver because I love people. Through my own personal battles, I saw how hard it was to find someone that was trustworthy, honest and caring to take care of my mother when she became ill. I vowed to myself that I would be that comforter, that dependable and trustworthy person to someone in need. I love being a caregiver because it gives me nothing but pleasure to know that I have made a difference in someone's life. Whether it be short term, or long term.The most personal achievement I am proud of is when my client or my clients family tells me that they appreciate me and my efforts. Just knowing that my efforts have helped in the smallest way brings joy to my heart. As for me, I have been a caregiver for over 12 years. I have cared for various types of patients. I have cared clients ranging from birth up until 101 years old. I have experience in the hospital as a patient care tech, as well as a home health aide. I am married with 5 boys. I look forward to hearing from you in the near future. Thank you for the opportunity.
