About Priscilla

My passion for care-giving is what motivated me to become a caregiver. Taking care of my patients is what I like best. I was able to care for a difficult and cold- hearted woman who because of her attitude no one was willing to take care of her. This woman later became fond of me that She did not want any other person to care for her except me. I am 34 years of age. I am dedicated, committed, punctual, reliable and hardworking. Because of my dedication for my job, I sometimes forget about my breaks and this according to most of the people I have worked with turns to be my weakness, especially where breaks are mandatory.
