About Rita

I am Rita Nana Yeboah. Have been a caregiver for about 3 years. I am committed to my job and do it with all my heart because that's what put bread on my table. I got the interest in becoming a caregiver about 4 years ago when I helped take care of my grandma before she died. During the time I became very fond of her and developed some sort of empathy for her and didn't wanna ever leave her side because I felt I was the only person who could give her a better care. After her demise, I felt strongly to be a caregiver. What I love most about being a careis when I see a smile on my client's face, when families are happy about a great change in their father's or mother's attitude. I have a great sense of humor and love to make my clients happy when they are down; I don't bother them with unnecessary jokes though when the timing is wrong. Almost all the clients I've catered for always want me to be their caregiver exclusively and keep giving good recommendations about me to my supervisors.

I have always been a people person and enjoyed helping others. It wasn't tell after my mother became ill and I was caring for her. I realized after her passing this is what I wanted to continue to help others . I'm very dependable and willing to help in all areas and give personal attention with respect and compassion .
