About Carrie

What makes me a great caregiver is my passion to care for the elderly and sick. As well as, giving of myself effortlessly to insure the client's well being and safety. Also, demonstrating empathy, patience, and compassion toward the client and their family are a few of many attributes. I became a caregiver after taking care of my elderly grandparents and later my mother whom eventually pass away from ovarian cancer. What I enjoy about being a caregiver are the smiles on the client's face and knowing they look to me to make them feel safe and secure.The personal achievement that I'm most proud of is the raising of my children and observing their accomplishment in their life.
