About Akeirah

My name is Akeirah. I have been working in the caregiving field for over 5 years now and honestly it was one of the best decisions I have ever made. I absolutely love what I do. I love being able to assist and make a difference in people's live. I am outgoing, friendly and I love meeting new people. Building a relationship with the individuals I care for is one of the most important things to me. I have built a bonds with some individuals that don't generally take well to new staff which is an accomplishment to me because it makes me proud that they know they can confide and rely on me. I am very reliable and take my work very seriously. I am always willing to pick up shifts and help out the best way I can.
