About Gerolyn

I always wanted to be a nurse. What I like about it is being there for someone in need of a companion. Help him/her achieve the goals they can't do alone, to have that quality of life they are use to. Keeping a positive attitude with all the negativity going on in the world I have done HHA/PCA Direct care. I am a people person. I'd like to learn that "some new" every day. I am more of a hand on person.

    I became a caregiver to provide warmth and comfort the the elderly and disabled. I like making the client feel secure and know that they can trust me. I give 110% to everything I do. When they see a familiar face everyday it makes them feel good and their willingness becomes better as the days go by. Their faces light up and they talk to you about anything that's on their mind. Even if they say the same things over and over again, it gives them great pleasure that you are willing to listen. Seeing the happiness on their face is the best achievement that I could ever give. Knowing that they are happy and content. I have been doing this so long, it doesn't feel like a job more like accomplishment. Helping people who can't help themselves. Lite housekeeping, medication reminder, food preparation, bed bath, baths, errands, medical visits, arts and crafts, accompanying them outside, laundry, inventory and anything else they will need. My serves is available Monday thru Friday. Full days
