About Bertha

I think anyone who is a caregiver should love the job, and I can say that I definitely love the work that I do. I grew up with my grandparents who lived to be 99 and 102 years old. I enjoyed caring for them and I extend that love to the other people whom I care for. I have been a caregiver for over thirteen years, and I just love what I do. My mother is 93 years old and unfortunately the distance between us makes it impossible for me to care for her. So as a caregiver, I care for people as if they are my mother. I provide my patients with the highest level of care, the same kind that I would want my mother to receive.

I have always taken care of others. As a little girl I was responsible for caring for my grandmother, and to this day I still care for the elderly at a facility near my home. For me the most satisfying experience is being thanked by somebody whom I take care of. I am most proud of my ability to help others. I have worked with many difficult patients and have always remained pleasant. I am very empathetic to the plight of those who need my services. I take pride in being punctual and maintaining a positive, kind attitude.
