Hello, my name is Shakkia. I am a warm, funny, caring, and trustworthy individual who loves to provide quality home care to others. I have over 10 years experience. I've cared for my Great grandmother, in my teens. I worked in facilities, and nursing homes... but there is something wonderfully more rewarding when providing care for someone in their own home. I love to introduce new experiences with my clients. I love to paint, read, craft, play games, and go on adventures! You're never too old to have fun!
I hope to make even more people smile! I am currently employed by an agency. I am open to live in care. When my father was in his last stages of life, I realized that I was the only one who could take care of him as I wanted. Afterwards I learnt that being a care giver was my path in life, I wanted to be in a position where I could assist others just like I did with my dad. I would like to be in a position to give you and your other family members a piece of mind knowing that your loved one is in good hands, well taken care of and loved.
To me being a care giver is not just another job, it's a noble calling that needs one to give their 100%. A good care giver should be patient, compassionate and empathetic, reliable, trustworthy and professional, this are qualities that I have acquired during my 5year experience in this field. I am a certified home health aid, I have experience working with seniors at the comfort of their homes(even in facilities? with various medical conditions like diabetes, cancer, stroke, dementia, Alzheimers and etc. Given opportunity, I will take care of your loved beyond your expectations.
