Hello my name is Renee Taufa, I live in East Palo Alto, I've been a caregiver for 14 plus years now. I start working as a caregiver when my grandmother in my last year in high school, she was diagnosed with dementia so us family members take great care of her. From there I felt like it's my calling to give back to elders because of what they've done-taking great care of us, which my grandmother did who raised me.
I've work worked in short and long term care in facilities, rehabilitations and also in seniors private home. Assisting seniors with ADLs, exercise, transferring, grooming, light housekeeping, and offer assistant with other tasks. I enjoy helping clients achieve short or long term goal, talk with them and find out what's their favorite book, show on tv, music they like.
I love cooking and baking by following recipes online or cookbook or whatever the clients wants.
In my spare time I love watching documentaries, read autobiography books, hanging out with my families and friends, go to movies, and love listening to classical music.
Thank you, have a wonderful day.
