About Velma

What help me to be a great caregiver is having Passion in my heart for what you love to do. What attract me of being a caregiver is just been able to help someone in need. Also making that person or family feel comfortable in knowing they can trust me around themselves or their love ones. What I love the most of being a caregiver is when I see that patient or family with a smile or just making a difference in there life. Also, when my care and work speaks for itself is a awesome feeling. My personal achievement I'm proud of is, First I'm a Christian and after 25 years of being in this field my background of experience speaks for itself of the accomplishments of what I have achieved and just knowing by the grace of god, he knows this is where I need to be.
