About Ruth

Hi my name is Ruth. I was recently caring for a man, for 3 1/2 years. He passed away 2 weeks ago, 2 weeks shy of his 103rd birthday. I also cared for his wife, she passed away a year ago. I love caring for people. My job responsibilities for them were to, get them washed and dressed for breakfast. Feed them breakfast. During the day I did light housekeeping, ran errands (went to pharmacy, food shopping, took them to appointments) I then fed them lunch, then at dinner time cooked a light dinner, washed and dressed then for bed. I am looking forward to helping you with your family member. Thank you Ruth

    I love caring for and working with people. I am a caring, warm, loving person with a positive energy. My goal is to help my client to gain or maintain independence, and to keep them home where they are comfortable. I really love what I do and the people that I help.

    I became a caregiver at a very young age assisting & volunteering at first with my church youth group, in nursing homes & that's when I became very fond of them and I enjoyed being with them and seeing them happy. The things I like most about being a caregiver is helping and bringing someone joy. I am mostly proud that I always keep a close bond with anyone I work with. I am also very loyal, compassionate & empathetic with everyone. I chose this profession because of the joy I feel while helping and caring for someone, so I enjoy my work and will always go above and beyond for people the same way I do when I'm not working. To me this is a life calling instead of a job, & someone to laugh & bond with makes it all fulfilling & worthwhile.
