About Claudia

I became a caregiver because I wanted to help make a difference in quality of life for those that needed help. I find it very rewarding when I know I am able to emotionally and physically support someone that is not able to do things on their own whether it be to help wash, dress, assist to medical appointments, shopping cleaning or just providing companionship. I began as a direct care support staff 13 years ago for Jefferson Rehabilitation Center in Watertown, NY. In 2004 I moved to Massachusettes and became Direct Care Staff for Turning Point located in Newburyport Ma. for 3 years. I have been doing private home care for a 90 yr old woman for the last 7+ years during which time I acquired my CNA certification and more recently I completed a Hospice course in October of this year.
