About Carla

Hi I'm Carla. I joined the medical field in 2012. Went back to school to become a CMA. In 2017 I became a private Caregiver for a sweet lady in Friday Harbor. Wonderful experience with a great family to work for. I'm compassionate, loving, with a special need to enjoy the geriatric population. I am warm, and easy to be around with a great sense of humor. My client and I enjoyed watching golf together, for something she enjoyed and used to do. Looking forward to my next client. Very rewarding. I had background fingerprints done when I worked for client as a caregiver. Done in late 2019. If needed.

The world exists upon the kindness showed by others, and that this kindness keeps alive the souls of those needing care. What I like about being a caregiver is that, for clients who cannot do many of the things they used to do, like running around and getting things done to take care of their families--life now begins anew based purely upon things that matter now today-- the worth, the thoughts, and the amount of attention that is paid toward them. This is a time of really focusing only on the present moment, and it takes a certain degree of concentration even to do that, sometimes. They are now the person who need this the most. My greatest personal achievements are when clients, who experience a decrease in function, and sometimes can hardly move or talk, are the most appreciative for my attentiveness to understand them. The story of the Good Samaritan identifies a good neighbor as one who shows kindness, and the rewards write upon the heart and soul. Caregivers are to the aging population a group who recognize that aches and pains are not going to go away. What some call a disadvantage, or disability serve, in many ways, to be an advantage because we shift our focus and attention toward what is really important in life-- people and how they are treated. I am only one of many like-minded caregivers who believe that a moment of clarity with loved ones--paying attention to the good in the moment--is the same as finding diamonds in your own backyard. Thanks for hiring through the Carelinx network!
