About Bridgette

I am a former CNA in Alabama and New York for 10 years. My mother was also a caregiver. I like being able to meet and care for others because it is fulfilling to me as a person and suites my sense of purpose. My personal aches enemy would be taking time as a single mother to work on my dreams and obtaining my Masters in Human Services. I am a mature woman who has worked in non- for-profit sector with all underserved populations as a second career after college. My last tenure was medical case manager which allowed me to incorporate my FormerCNA training.

    There are many caregivers out there... but what I feel separates me from the rest is that I truly enjoy helping others, especially our elders who truly deserve someone like me who is compassionate, patient, reliable, trustworthy and flexible towards the hours and days when I would be needed. I place a priority on helping people. And there is nothing more rewarding for a family in knowing that their loved one is being cared for, families need this peace of mind. I enjoy being counted on to be there, being confident in my abilities with sound judgment and enthusiasm. Thank you!

    Since a very young age I have always been interested in spending time with older people. I love to help and make people smile. To me, I think it's being able to put yourself in the older person's shoes and understand that they were also my age once and had the whole world at their feet. I think you need the gift of the gab to resonate with people and make them feel comfortable with you and get to know you better. Home care is a personal experience and it can be incredibly fruitful if the relationship is more caring and personal.
