l 've been a caregiver since (1983) when I was trained and certifiied as s a direct care staff for the profoundly mentally handicap for 5 years, than transitioned over to caring for the elderly, recently I just loss a client of over 6yrs. who was 98 years old. I also cared for her daughter who preceeded her in death due to lung cancer. I have 30 years plus experience, if you're looking for someone who's going to give 100% of herself at all times, and whom offers an excellent attendance track record proven, I'm definitely your girl. Hire me, and your loved one will live life to the highest quality that they deserve, and will be as comfortable as possible. The most important responsibility of a good caregiver is, companionship, that eventually graduates to complete caregiving; And to preserve and increase each clients quality of life. Each client will know with me, their lives matter, and they still have a lot to contribute to it.I offer my love and compassion, along with patince and prayer.
