About Irma

15 years ago I was in desperate need of a caregiver for my mother. It was very difficult to find an honest, caring, trustworthy person to care for her. I went through several different caregivers, including a family friend that didn't work out for the job. I ended up quitting my job and caring for her till she died 9 years later. At this point in my life I want to be able to help someone that needs special care because I know the negative impact it can take on the entire family when the care of a loved one is not being met. I think the sick and elderly are at our mercy to care for them.

I am a detailed, compassionate, hard- working person at your service. I am here to give you or your family member a loving helping hand. Whether that is in light housekeeping, daily activties, meal prepping, or companionship. I am here to assist you. Being a caregiver brings me joy. Something to know about me; One of my favorite personal achievements is when I made a decision to go back to school to get my degree. Of course a lot of obstacles were thrown at me, and a lot of excuses came up, but I kept pushing through. I hope to hear from you.

<IM FULLY VACCINATED COVID-19> Hello, my name is Sabrina. Mom of two wonderful kids. I'm experienced on special needs (ADHD, autism, Asperger syndrome). Also caregiver experienced on Alzheimer/ Parkinson diseases, and babysitter. Helping is my main. I understand that sometimes we need time for important situations in our lives and we require someone trustworthy to watch our family members. As caregiver I want the best for the family and that's the most important to me. I want you to feel comfortable SAFETY IS KEY, and more than showing my experience I want to be able to provide security, love and patience for your lovely ones. they deserve someone that can really feel good with and have a great time. I hope I can help you in this beautiful journey of being your next caregiver.
