About Sheila

I have always loved and been intrigued by humanity. I have earned a Bachelor's degree in psychology and a Master's degree in human development. I began taking care of a neighbor couple at night as a neighborly gesture due to their need for 24 hour care. This has now turned into a full-time job. I have experience in counseling senior adults and caregivers. Caregiving has become my passion and what I find most fulfilling.

I am careful, safe, organized and coordinated in transporting clients for their needs whether it is for picking up medications, getting them to and from their appointments, filling out forms, helping with their shopping, all personal care service for their daily living for and anytime they want some simple conversation and just not be alone. To give and share with clients, one must be compassionate and patient and have an understanding that those needing care would like for the caregiver to understand their needs. There happens to be an advantage to being a caregiver that can put themselves in the shoes and situation of those with the need. My joy is realized when the needs are filled and the cared for people are grateful and thankful. I want to give the care and experience the joy often. I have experienced this joy with my parents as I cared for them. Currently I am a part-time caregiver for various clients providing them all the assistance they may need.

I am a great caregiver because I really enjoy giving my care and services to my clients. I like to make them feel comfortable and assisted when they need it. I like to take care of my clients like if they were part of my family member with love, patience and care. All elderly are special to me and deserve my respect. It makes me feel very rewarding when I assist and help a client.
