About Cynthia

I became a CNA in 1994 and have worked in home health ever since. I also became a Certified Behavior Instructor which has greatly opened up my understanding of Dementia. With my past training and work experience I have become, what many have said, a specialist in Dementia home care. I understand the importance of a ritualistic schedule and structure to minimize confusion, agitation, and anxiety. I am passionate about my work and require dignity for my client at all times. I feel there is no better calling then to be there in the later part of life to give the highest quality possible. I pride myself on being able to answer all questions pertaining to palliative or hospice care scenario. I also provide the family peace of mind and help in understanding the changes their loved one is currently experiencing.

    I became a caregiver after volunteering for Hospice and realizing I had a passion for helping others. I really enjoy knowing that as a caregiver I can enrich the lives of so many people and help them live comfortably in their homes when their loved ones aren't able to provide the assistance needed. I also like knowing that I can be a part of allowing seniors to live their life to the fullest regardless of all the hurdles that aging and diseases can bring. I have been a caregiver for about 11 years now I have learned and grown so much as I have been exposed to many different conditions and situations such as dementia, Parkinson's, and diabetes. One of my greatest personal achievements aside from obtaining my CNA certification has been how much I have learned about Hospice and working with people in the end of life stage or with terminal illnesses. One thing I know for sure regardless of the years of experience or education I have earned towards my caregiving career I was born with a caring and compassionate heart that will be the main driving force to the excellent customer service you'll experience when I am the caregiver for your loved one. I am deeply passionate about helping others and I truly feel I have been placed on this earth to make a difference. I truly believe in \"doing small things with great love\" it is the motto I stive for everyday.

    I always give 100% and do the best job I can, with no exceptions or excuses. I also try to bring a sense of humor to my work. If I can add a smile or laugh to a client’s day, that means a lot to me. It is important to laugh. One of the best qualities as a caregiver is my ability to be empathic. I understand that my client may feel vulnerable, scared, confused and uncomfortable, and being able to identify and allay these fears can create a sense of calm and trust for those being cared for.
