About Patricia

I became a caregiver because I have love and compassion for people and enjoy helping people along there journeys. What I like about about being a caregiver is the smile and love that I get back from the care that I have gave and the difference that it have in someones life. The personal achievement that I am proud of is that the President of the hospital that I work for came down to thank me personal for the excellent care that I have been giving to the patient's that was an honor for me. I presently work in a Hospice Inpatient unit at Holy Redeemer Hospital as a Hospice Aide for two years. I have seven years experience working in the health care field. For me when caring for a client they become apart of my family so giving the the best care is not hard.
