Part Time/full Time Companion

Hired by 1 family in your neighborhood

Our elders are like open books, experience ready to be shared. I have worked with them for a long time and there is nothing I enjoy more than to listen to their stories and, of course, learn from them. I guess that is what motivated me to study to become a Technician in Geriatrics and Gerontology in Spain.
