About Erica

I am a great caregiver because I care deeply for the elderly, and those in need of help with ADLs. I became a caregiver, because and their lack and need for independence, and I find it a pleasure to help. It is rewarding to see the elderly gets out of bed, maintain some independence, and meet up with friends. A personal achievement is being ably to care for the elderly over the past nine years, and becoming a citizen of the United States of America.

    What makes me a great caregiver is my compassion and the fact that i honestly love what i do. I became a caregiver because when i was younger my grandmom passed away and the little tasks i was allowed to do made me feel good and if i can do that for someone else loved ones it would bring me joy. An achievement i made was becoming a cna and although i didn't finish but i intend to is nursing school.
