About Vida

I became a caregiver over 17 years ago when I migrated here from Ghana. Initially, I didn't think I'd fall in love with being a caregiver as a career choice but I have and still do. What makes me great at my job is that I don't just look at my patients as "patients" but rather as family and me as their friend and companion. With patience and the love that God expects us to demonstrate to one another I strive to be the best caregiver to everyone in need.
