About Linda

I became a caregiver because I have always loved being around elderly people. I respect their wisdom and love to interact with them. I actually started "helping" elderly people one summer nearly 20 years ago when I had a small landscaping business, and through helping people that had various health issues and could no longer do some of their outdoor duties, my business kind of evolved into caregiving full-time. My last caregiver job lasted 9 years until my client began to need 24 hour care. I consider myself to be a loyal person.

    I became a caregiver 22 years ago when (at that time) my mothers employer was looking for a 'fill-in' person. I gave it a try and absolutely fell in love with what I did! I love being a caregiver because I find great joy in helping others!! I have worked with a lot of Seniors and I have helped them to be able to stay in their homes! I have a passion for helping others! I am a very energetic, trustworthy, reliable and caring individual!! I am able to provide great references upon request!!
