About Elka

I'm 60 years old with medical billing, coding and nursing assistant certificates. I've been a caregiver for 12 years, and love giving the best care to my patients, I also enjoy talking to them and making them very comfortable. I became a caregiver because I like to help and encourage the elderly. I'm an honest, loving and caring person. It gives me a great satisfaction to know that I'm helping my client. I'm also a great listener I respect everyone and their well being.
