About Janet

I am an outgoing, caring, empathetic and very compassionate person which blends really well with caregiving. I find it very rewarding to be able to help people with disabilities and the elderly who have lost either physical or intellectual ability to do Activities of Daily Living. What's even more fulfilling is knowing it gives them hope to want to live longer & increased purpose in life. I took care of my grandmother in the last five years of her life and it was the most humbling experience, especially knowing how much she appreciated it and that it's all that gave her hope for another day which always brought tears of joy to my heart. I have been a caregiver since and love how it's continued to humble me as a person as well as give me the most rewarding job ever.

Hello, my name is Elisa I am 57 years old My caregiving started in 1995 , as my Mother became ill , I knew she would want a high level of in home care that I would personally be able to provide. As her illness became more advanced , it was important to me that she be able to stay in her home where she would be more comfortable. A few time a week turned into every day, then several hours a day. My Mothers wishes to be at home in her time of need was fulfilled . And it was a blessing and a honor to be there for her. I found myself wanting to give other families the same opportunity my Mother was given. I continued working closely with other families as well as with the IHSS of King Co. from 1995 till 2001.Then in California in Contra Costa Co. From 2002 - 2009 then , I returned back to Washington State where I have continued my work with private families.
