About Anne

This was my dream job when I was about 12 years taking care of my grand mother everyday after school. My duties were to take food to her, collect firewood, draw water from the river and sweep her kitchen and wash dishes. I loved and still love taking care of the elderly and the sick to this day. I am a compassionate, responsible, loving, patient, good company, attentive listener and also empathetic.I am a sociable person who has a natural affinity to providing continuous care. I am dependable, able to handle situations under pressure. Looking for a compatible family or company to work with.

Hello, my name is Elisa My caregiving started in 1995 , as my Mother became ill and 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 extreme, 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 and also 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 families. I am available to start giving the best care to your loved ones or yourself and give the opportunity to remain safely in your home. I am currently approved, on the Home Health Care Registry . Please feel free to see a full work history upon request. References can be provided upon request. I have been given the covid vaccine

I love what I do as a caregiver, I love helping out or making vulnerable people feel cared for, loved and comfortable by all means because they deserve quality life. I love adding value to people's lives. Being a caregiver I am able to interact directly with my clients and this way I get to know them better and in this way I am able to deliver quality care. I once helped my grandpa at his old age even without any skills of caregiving by then. I ensured he had a quality life by attending to his needs and being his companion and this made him happy
