About Mala

I have been in the medical field for almost 35 yrs. This is my passion and my comfort zone. I came to the USA with the plan to continue my nursing and started as a private contractor, doing home care. I have been in part-time companion care since 2012 while working full time as a Nursing assistant/file clerk at NYU Winthrop University hospital. This is a job you have to love to do it. Understanding the various medical and psychological changes in an individual as they age is a great asset and I do. My humanitarian personality has helped me to be successful in my profession but I needed to step down a little and just to companion care after I resigned from WUH for personal reasons. The individual who hires me will not only be comfortable and safe but can depend on me to recognize any physical, emotional, medical or psychological changes. I know my job because this is the job I love.

Hello my name is Robin Berry. I am a very outgoing and sociable person. Especially when it comes to a client that really doesn't like to talk much or may not have much energy or excitement during their day. I learned sometimes a smile and a good joke is the best medication. I believe that's what makes me a great care giver besides the fact that I am well experienced in bed transfers to toilet/sitting device and or wheelchair as well as usage of the Hoyerlift for bedbound clients. Average weight with proper technique, I can lift up to 250 pounds. I also have a great rapor with dementia as well as alzheimer patients. I am aware of the urgency of structuring a reasonable schedule for them so they dont become antsy during sundowning. Keeping a close source of comforting solutions to calm their frustration. Such as a cellular device to contact a familiar voice or face call from a family member. I have been doing home care since I was 20 years old and I have work for maybe 5 to 6 agencies throughout the past 15 years of off and on again service throught New York City while being a mom of 2 beautiful children who are now all grown up. I always had a way of making people cheer up. I had one clients family that were so happy with my service she wrote a letter to the job to Express her satisfaction with my care for her mother. She said it was my calling from God. I don't want to exaggerate my story but I have been blessed with seeing happy faces, when i arrived in the morning, to a few clients home. With most of my cases. I am definitely grateful for keeping alot of my clients healthy, happy and safe. Especially with the new pandemic their lives are so much more fragile and I hope to assist with being apart of your families Health team to aide in your family members safe and healthy recovery and or companionship.
