Caring for our seniors is perhaps the greatest responsibility we have, those who walked before us have given so much and made possible the life we all enjoy. I love care-giving to those that would otherwise not be able to do so, the the smile on their faces is overwhelming and makes me feel that I have done my job right. I have always enjoyed helping people, so I know I am doing the right thing.

I always give 100% and do the best job I can, with no expectations or excuses. I also try to bring a sense of humor to my work I've been known to be quite good at doing so. If I can add a smile or laugh to a client's day, I even enjoy watching their favorite television shows with them, that means a lot to me, I feel that's more rewarding than any paycheck can ever be. It is important to laugh. I always treat my clients as if they were my family and I care, love and protect them.
