Brenda G.|Angier, NC
10 yrs exp
Live-In Caregiver/Companion Specialist
I absolutely love being a caregiver/companion for seniors, I feel it's my purpose in life now. I just love doing it! I have stayed in contact with all my previous patients' families long after they have gone on to heaven.
I offer affordable, dependable, excellent senior care-giving and companion services. I have been with Care.com since Jan. 2010. I have lived in Dallas most of my life, but recently moved to North Carolina to be near family.
I have worked independently for the last 14 years, not through any agency. I have a clean background check through Care.com and great references that you can review in my profile, and even more are available anytime upon your request.
I have been caring for seniors for over 16 years. Before that, I worked in the Corporate world for 30 years, and I am a mature, dependable, clean, health-conscious female. I always get my flu shot every year because I do go into homes of seniors and I sure don't want to get them sick while taking care of them. I began care-giving by volunteering with various local senior centers and non-profit neighborhood church organizations.
I also took care of my mother and then after she passed in Jan. 1998, I moved to San Antonio and took care of my aunt for 2 1/2 years. Since then, I have worked for a lot of great families in the DFW area while caring for their parents. This was while they were either still living in their own homes, but I have also followed through with them when they are hospitalized, to rehab or in an assisted living setting.
The seniors and their families that I have taken care of over the years have really appreciated the way I treat their parents and loved ones, and that means a great deal to me personally.
I remain close friends and in contact with most of my former patients and/or their families to this day, even after their loved ones have gone on to their next life.
I offer maturity, experience, dependability, honesty, and a great work ethic.
