About Ghislaine

Hello, my name is Ghislaine and I been working as an HHA for more then 25 years now. What I love the most is how I become part of the family. Most of my case I work with the patient for 7 to 8 years until they pass. I still keep close with the family and they became part of my family. I want to provide the companionship and assist each patient as I would want others to treat me.

The first thing about being a great caregiver is to listen to your client and to be patient at the same time your patience will always be comfortable talking to you I became a caregiver for my grandmother that open the door for taking care of others one of the things that I enjoy most about being a caregiver is how exciting your client feels when you come to see them it's almost like two friends having tea and challah bread one of the things that I achieve in the work that I do is how I'm able to communicate with my clients even if it is a hospice care I take great pride in what I do and I always remember getting sick and aging can happen to anyone you're not above it so you treat people with respect and hope for the same when it is your turn.
