    I am a caring and compassionate person. I want to provide professional caregiving services, help clients maintain their independence, and assist them with activities of daily living. I also love to help those who cannot help themselves. I have had the opportunity to learn new skills and undertake training relevant to my role. I have also benefitted from knowing that I have made a difference in someone's life. I am a devoted, competent, responsible, punctual, hardworking, and trustworthy person. I have good judgement and the ability to make smart decisions on my own. I am articulate and communicate in a clear and helpful way. I love people and I am very experienced in caregiving.

    I always liked to be with kids, adults and the elderly. I fell in love with caring for someone else when I offered to be with my father in law when he became sick. I used to go to the hospital several times per day to check up on him. When he went home from the hospital I stayed and took care of him until he passed away. I was there when he transition to hospice care. I was there for him day and night, just the two of us. Here was 89 years old. To be of assistance to soneone in that stage of his life was an eye opener as far as the real needs of a person at that crucial time provided me with serenity in my heart to have given the best care to him. I became stronger and I feel at peace when I think of hiim in heaven. I am a compassionate, respectful, responsible with a smile in my face and always striving for the best outcome at all times. I deeply appreciate ones privacy, dignity and confidentiality. I make sure that I report any changes or events that happened during my shift. I understand someone's need of pet therapy and I embrace it (except for reptile and wild animals :) ) I am a non smoker, non drinker and have a great driving record.
