About Sandy

I have been a care giver for over ten years. I decided to go into home care because I grew up with my grandmother living at home with us. My grandmother is my best friend and I enjoy every moment with her. God has blessed her with 91 years and I pray we get at least 10 more. With that bring said I enjoy what I do. Every client is different each has their own needs and their challenges. I enjoy getting to know them and the history of generations before for me. On the days that it may be challenging I am equip with love and compassion. I am learning and growing with each new experience. I have an associates degree in Medical Assistant and I'm currently going for my BSN in Health Care Administration at Briarciffe College in Bethpage NY.

    I have an innate sense of selflessness and empathy is embedded in my personality and I am good listener.I am a compassionate, honesty, reliable person that care about people. I have been working in the personal care profession for several years. I decided to become a caregiver because I enjoy providing care to people of different ages. It gives me great satisfaction to know that I am helping someone and this job enables me to make a difference in the daily lives of my clients. My client misplaced her money I helped her to find it and put it in a secure place, she was concern that she would forget where she put her money. She speaks five languages, so I told her choose one of the language and write it down on a piece of paper and put on the refrigerator. She was very grateful that I helped her to solve her problem and I am very proud that I was able to help her.
