I became a caregiver, because I like helping people who are in need of assistance with their daily living. Helping people who are in need of personal care has been a achievement for me, because I enjoy helping people.

The following medical equipment I have experience using are wheelchair, hoyerlift, walker, cane, sliding board, urinal, thermometer, and blood pressure machine. Over the years I have worked for People Care Agency located New York, NY, Center for family support located New York NY, Westchester Care At Home located White Plains, NY and Home Instead Senior Care located Louisville, KY
