About Brittney

I love caregiving and have been a caregiver as a second job for about 6 years now. My father diagnosed with terminal liver cancer which has taught me a lot not only medically but emotionally about what the patient and family go through during the hard times of health problems. During the diagnosis of my fathers cancer I searched for the right caregiver and wanted someone educated yet compassionate who could also fit in with our family. I finally decided to caregive for my father myself and am very happy that I did and did hire part time caregivers along the way if I had deadlines for work etc...this is what got me into the field of caregiving and after my father passed I continued to be a caregiver because I know that the nurses and caregivers that helped us through his last few years made a huge difference in our lives and I wanted to be able to give back or pay forward the amazing gift they had given us while he was going through his cancer and treatments. I feel that I am great for this job because I know first hand what it is like to have a busy life and career, I also had a small baby at the time and have a terminal illness diagnosed with no preparation, money for help or family help close by. I know that it can be stressful for the patient and family and I have learned so many skills of how to make these hard times easier, and how to be there for the patient and family and make it easier with not only my medical knowledge and experience but through compassion, understanding, and laughter. I feel that it's very important that you are able to find a caregiver who can feel like part of the family and come and go and be present or in the background when needed but most of all to be there and be reliable and considerate of what the patient and family are going through.
