About Miriam

Hello, I am a great caregiver because I love taking care of people. To work in the healthcare field has always been a passion of mine. I took care of my mother for many years. She had High BP and was Diabetic. I assisted her with all of her daily living needs such as: cooking, feeding, and bathing. In addition, I gave her prescribed medication when needed as well as monitor her glucose level & blood pressure readings. Taking care of my mother is my greatest achievement and I feel very proud to know that I was there for her when she most needed me to provide her with all the care she needed when she could no longer do for herself. Therefore, I understand and would gladly do the same for another person who needs care. I love the trusting relationship & bond that grows with the one your caring for. Making that person comfortable is key so knowing they can talk, trust, and confide in you is wonderful. It was then I realized I had a love for helping and making one's life tasks better and with greater ease. I fell in love with being not only a helper but also a companion. Taking care of a loved one, knowing I'm making a difference in their life is rewarding for me. Because of my experience and profound love for this field, is the reason I would be a good fit to any home I go.
