All my life, I have been involved in providing personal care. I believe that caring for individual's is a calling and it comes natural to me. I have helped as a little girl, care for senior citizens as well as have cared for those whom have had physical and emotional concerns. I have experience with memory care clients as well. I have worked in long term care facilities as well as private homes. I personally prefer to be in a home environment because its been my experience that the individual receives undivided care and the attention that is due to them.
I love what I do and for me it's not just a job, it's a calling on my life as part of my purpose.
I have been certified as a caregiver/nursing assistant in West Virgina, North Carolina and Pennsylvania. I'm compassionate and attentive towards the needs of those around me. I have a lot of respect and appreciation for those who try their best to make sure that their loved ones gets top quality care and companionship in the comfort of their own home. I treasure the time that I get with individuals, especially during dinner and watching TV with those that I care for. It's during these times, they usually share some of the most amazing stories about their life and family memories that they treasure. I try to capture those moments and share with the family in hopes that it makes them smile. I've seen what a little work and a big heart can do in the lives of families during difficult times and I am motivated to help relieve the pressures of everyday needs. I see it as an honor and privilege to be a part of someone's life and don't take this half heartily.
I am a mother of three girls and a handsome grandson who can make someones day. My youngest girl is 15 years old and lives with her dad. She likes the school district, so child care is never an issue with me. I am trustworthy and honest and strive to make the best of every circumstance. I am available for a face to face interview anytime and welcome the opportunity to see if I would be the right fit for your family's needs and situation.
