It takes a compassionate and patient person to take care others, and its so important to leave your loved ones in good and caring hands. My schedule is flexible, I'm available on weekdays/weekends and can be live in or live out (will need at least 3 days to watch my granddaughter through out the week). I'm hoping to find someone who can benefit from my 10 years + of experience and expertise in this area. I take regular training and courses to keep up to date in this field, I also enjoy exploring new cooking and helping with housework. My family says I'm always laughing and have a overall positive att itude and outlook. I'm currently looking after a elderly gentleman in Brooklyn, NY from Thursday to Sunday and travel to Tinton Falls, NJ to watch my beautiful 11 month old granddaughter. Please don't hesitate to call me if you have any questions about my experience, thank you! ... more
