About Bernice

As a very young person, I realized the need and honor of being a caregiver. I suppose that is why I chose to peruse a practical nursing career. Although, after I received my licence, I did not practice professionally; my education did come handy as my husband and I raised and cared for our two daughters and later when I helped care for my paraplegic uncle (a WWII veteran), my father (also a veteran) and most recently (for the last 6 years) my mother, until her passing in 2014. I suppose my greatest accomplishments are surrounded in the caregiving of others. With my expieriance and skills I feel that I can provide exceptional care for a family in need.

    I have a passion in caring for the elderly. I became a caregiver several years ago. I began my journey when my partner's grandmother was diagnosed with Dementia & Parkinson's disease. I decided to alleviate the family from the day to day stresses that come along when your caring for a loved one.. Originally I had just volunteered. What I like about being a caregiver is: I enjoy helping people and it has taught me to not take life for granted. I feel fortunate and thankful for my health. This career by far has taught me to have compassion and how important it is for the family to feel secure with the care provided. I became a bondsman at a very young age and was then licensed as a solicitor for a bonding company. I had my own office at the age of eighteen. I always excel quickly in my positions. Just helping others makes me feel good about myself. Simply knowing I can brighten someone's day. My mother became very ill, and I ended up taking care of her. I know first hand how stressful it is on the family when your loved one is no longer able to function in day to day life. I think how would I want my mother to be cared for. She ended up passing. I grew to love everything about care giving. It really hits close to home and I know how I would want my family member treated if my mother was being cared for. I strive to maintain a positive attitude. Care giving is so much more than a job to me . It has helped me to be more grateful of life and people. I'm proud of the person I am and have became. I am a hard worker. I have integrity, compassion, I take pride in what I do. I'm an outgoing person, very kind ,dependable, hard working, self sufficient, quick learner and adaptable to any situation. I can assure you I am perfect for any position due my expertise, my knowledge, and my experience. I am cpr certified Mar certified and I have had years of training in this field.. If you have further questions please feel free to contact me.
