About Serena

I believe I am a great caregiver because I genuinely enjoy helping people, it is very rewarding for me. I became a CNA in 1996, while working at a large nursing home/retirement center, in the hospitality field, because I really enjoyed working with the elderly making their lives a little brighter. I continued to work there for seven years, I also worked in assisted living for ten years, then private duty care which I also enjoy. I am a mature, caring, compassionate person, who will care for your loved one with respect and dignity. My greatest personal achievement was graduating from Kaplan University while working full-time.

My job as a caregiver was to help the client with all activities of daily living as needed. These activities include bathing, feeding, dressing, activities, vitals, errands, and anything else the client may be in need of. I also encouraged my client to engage in activities such as light exercise and stretching and on being as independent and safe as possible.
