About Dorothy

I became a caregiver about 8yrs ago. My fathered suffered a stroke. I became his full time caregiver and it was at this point in my life I knew this is where my career should be. This is what I wanted to do, this is what I knew I had to do. What makes me a great caregiver is empathy. I have so much love and care for my clients. Each of them are treated with dignity and respect. I grow very close with them. My heart is so big for their needs, and I make sure they are met to my capabilities. I make sure they feel safe and comfortable in my care. Lastly, my most personal achievement I am proud of is, at my last company (just recently moved out of state) I was personally requested by many families.

Hello, My name is Brianna Reaves, I am a loving 24-year-old woman with three children who has a passion for the young and elderly. I am consistent always on time as well I treat everyone with kindness and dignity. What attracted me to becoming a caregiver was my grandmother she was hospitalized and I was the sole provider for her when she was bedridden those were the best 6 months of my life just being able to give back to a woman who gave so much to me and my mom. Without our elderly, we would be nothing in this world they gave us a foundation and my mission is to give back and make sure that they are fully taken care of. What I enjoy most about caregiving is the smile I see on there face every day when they see I am at their home there to assist and the love they have for me being around them. A personal achievement I am proud of is starting school so that I may become an RN and I will be able to do more for the elderly and give them great care and peace of mind. I am CPR certified and I am willing and ready to treat your love one with love and compassion.
