I became a caregiver to improve the quality of life of the person I am assigned to. I really enjoy cooking, baking, being around people, taking them for walks, shopping, etc. Having a medical background helps me alot to deal with pressure/diabetic ulcers, dressings, catheters care and so on. Every client of mine receives individualized care based on their needs and I am ready to put my energy and efforts towards someone's brighter life
