About Allison

I consider myself a great caregiver because I am upbeat, positive, and have a bubbly personality. When I meet a new client, I always try to get them to smile or laugh. I enjoy being a caregiver because I like to give back...I would imagine these people raised children or took care of someone during their life, and now I want to help take care of them. I am most proud of just graduating, with honors and a 4.0, from Drexel University last year! I look forward to meeting you and your family!

Personal Caregiver

Mar 2011 - Sep 2014
Personal Family Member
I was a personal caregiver for my great Aunt, up until she passed away in September 2014. I helped her with cleaning and laundry, as well as other things around the house. I also helped her with transfers from bed to standing, from standing to chair, from walker to car, and in/out of car, etc. I would drive her to doctor appointments, as well as short trips to the store. I helped her with bathing, dressing, cooking and eating, toileting, etc. We did everything together! I even helped her when she wanted to put on some makeup! I have a true passion for helping anyone who is my elder! I think people my age do not respect them enough.

A caregiver to a patient with varying health conditions needs a lot of patience, mental toughness to do the job to carry the care with calmness and outward caution in a difficult situation. My years of experience gives me confidence to do the job. Each patient has its own personality, different illness we are going to deal with. The connection and relationship established with the patient is my greatest achievement on my job. It is a spiritual fulfillment to me.
