About Yvette

I became a Caregiver because it gives me an opportunity to assist, encourage and make a difference in the lives of my clients. I enjoy making my clients comfortable, see them smile, love them as a person and listen to their many stories. A personal achievement I am proud of is when I heard a client who have never spoken a word in many months from the time I started working with her, turned towards me one day during lunch and asked me if she could have a piece of my lunch. I felt so good, I cried a little). I have been working as a Caregiver/Companion for over 15 years. I look forward everyday when working to having a wonderful and fulfilled day with my clients.
