About Katrina

Hi there! My name is Katrina. Becoming a caregiver has been my calling for a long time now. I've always been drawn to helping people. Each and every elderly person that I have cared for has been treated with nothing but love and respect. I'm a light heart-ed, fun loving, caring, compassionate individual who's main goal in my profession is to make sure that they receive the absolute best care possible. I couldn't see myself doing anything else. When I see my residents smile it lights up my whole world. I want to give the gift of feeling alive back. It's hard to let go of youth and realize you can not take care of yourself anymore...sometimes they can't realize that at all and that's why I am here. To take care of all their necessary needs and to give them back the feeling everyone is longing for.... A warm hand to hold and an ear to be heard. Someone they can always depend on to be there by their side. I've dealt with numerous amounts of medications, muscle strengthening techniques, Different forms of dementia patients and much more. Here is what my recent job entitled: Home management and care planning. Medical Advocacy, Prescription Medication Management. Hygiene and Personal care help, Assisting with meals and nutrition, Help with mobility, Home maintenance and house keeping, Keeping company with all residents. Thank you so much for your time and I hope to become your personal family caregiver! Sincerely, Katrina B. Cantu

Companionship to me for the elderly is lots and lots of conversation! I find out what they like to do whether its going for a walk, reading, doing puzzles, watching television, etc. I realize they have good days and bad days, and we could decide for that day what he/she feels up to doing. They love to be pampered. Not rushed! I enjoy helping people. I have taken care of several of my family members dealing with all sorts of issues. I am reliable, punctual, trustworthy, honest, and respectful. Some seniors just want someone to hang out with them because they are lonely. Some will require physical assistance with mobility, laundry, grocery shopping, errands, cooking, walking their dog etc. Everyone wants to have their dignity respected, especially as they age or if they are ill. I can provide detailed doctor notes, help keep their calendar updated with tasks, keep an eye on if there are changing health issues and report to someone if there are changes. I enjoy providing this care because I love helping others especially the elderly. I provide my care as if I were taking care of my own family members. You can count on me.

I became a caregiver to give companionship to the elders in my community. I love making connections with them and helping out with their daily activities. I am very compassionate, patient, and good at listening. I want to make sure that my clients know I care about them greatly and will do anything to make sure they are living comfortably.
