About Yolanda

I am a compassionate, bright and hard working person who spirit is lively. I'm caring ,generous, have great listening skills and very reliable. I chose to become a caregiver because I've have been compelled to help my disabled and elderly family members since the '90's. Now I'm choosing this field as a career. I was a Medicare sales rep for twenty one years and then decided I wanted to become a caregiver for the elderly and disabled because most members were treated cruel by their caregivers and I wanted to make a difference. I will assist with meal prep, toileting, bathing, grooming, medication reminders, grocery shopping, schedule medical appointments and serve as a escort to\from medical appointments. I will be a great companion, housekeeper, walking/exercise buddy. I will create activities we'd both enjoy. I'm a hairstylist as well.. for men and women.

What makes me a great caregiver is that I have faith in helping others and I want to be helpful in humanity. I want to be a caregiver because when my mom was sick I always helped her and when she passed away I felt like I had a responisablity to help other sick people in the same way. I enjoy being a caregiver because at work I spend all my time doing something good that God appreciates. One personal achievement that I have is that I stuck with one of my patients who wasn't able to walk until she got better and started walking.
