About Andrea

I am passionate about treating others as I wish to be treated. I have a special place in my heart for children and elderly. I believe these ones are our future and our foundation, respectively. They deserve our utmost care, concern, patience and respect. I was raised by my great grandmother (my mother was very young when she had me and her mother died giving birth to her). My great grandmother instilled in me the importance of treating everyone well and always reminded me that I might "one day be in those same shoes". I've never forgotten that and it has been instrumental in how I look at persons and their situations and have that desire to help in any way that I can. I really enjoy seeing someone smile when they haven't had reason to do so in a while, or helping them to achieve a small goal when they thought it to be too difficult for them. I like letting them know that they do matter and that people do care about them. I had to 'get over' my fear of blood and needles in order to assist my current client. I did not want them to feel like I was disgusted in any way to what they have to live with and do through no choice of their own. So, I put a smile on my face and watched and learned and encouraged them. I am proud that I have no qualms about blood and needles now. If it helps them, I am good with it.

I enjoy working with people and I most enjoy jobs where I have one-on-one interaction with others. I enjoyed taking care of my elder family members and would like to help others in this way. I like older adults and feel I can get along well with a variety of elders. I like doing work that has the potential to make a difference in someone's life. I like doing a variety of tasks in a day. I don't ever say, "That's not my job" but instead like pitching in to do whatever is needed. I like making someone smile and doing little things to make a person's day better. I take pride in attending to detail.
