About Paula

I am a great caregiver because I do not see caregiving as a job. I see it as a privilege given to me from the family. I see caregiving as an opportunity to help a family take care of their most precious asset. I find happiness in helping others. I am patient, loving and will go the extra mile for the families I work for. My own grandmother was my inspiration for going into this field of service.
