About Nancy

I am now available from 2 am to 7 am starting Monday after midnight and ending at 7 am on Fridays, or I am available from 8:30 am to 12:30 pm Mon through Friday. I have always wanted to give the best quality care to the elderly, they should be held in high regard and with deep respect. I am also very willing to help any one of any age, to know I am making them feel better, and if I cant physically, that I can cheer them up mentally. Even though the pay is not high, the idea of what I am doing for another is rewarding. I have been am manager and secretary but have always wanted to be a caregiver. I like to cook healthy meals and watch my patient start feeling better just by changing her eating patterns if willing. I enjoy bathing my patients as I know how clean and better it will make them feel. I love to hear the stories of days of old. I love when my patient tells me, " What would I do without you."

    I am a great caregiver because this has been my passion ever since I was taking care of my grandmother and my aunt. I cared for them at an early age and ever since then I always knew I want to continue to care for others when I got of age to do so. i have very in tuned to what type of care is need for the client,resident,or patient. I make sure that I have met their needs according to the information I am given. I sometimes find myself going beyond the call of duty but that's just me I like to make all residents and patients are taken care whether they are on my list of the ones I have or not. It takes a compassionate person to do what I do and I am very compassionate and understanding. I see it like this one day I am going to need for someone to care for me so I want to make sure I treat people right because I do not want to have to be neglect or abuse when someone is caring for me this is why I make sure I do my job.
