Meet Linda

I've been enjoying working as a professional full-time caregiver, since 2007. I started working for a well-known agency. They introduced me to a client that hired me as his personal caregiver. I was his live-in companion for almost 4 years until he passed away. Then I worked for a woman with Parkinson's for 3 years, and a woman who was wheelchair bound for 2 years. On all occasions, I worked hand and hand with doctors, nurses, therapists, and hospice and they were all able to pass away in the comfort of their homes. I was entrusted with giving strong medications, such as morphine and insulin. I have taken care of Alzheimer's, stroke, and cancer patients. I worked and volunteered at a hospital for 5 years. I took care of my mother who had Alzheimer's for 10 years. I have a happy, easy going, and caring nature. I'm dependable and show good judgement. I'm committed to seeing my clients' physical and emotional needs are being met by providing the best possible care.

Linda was very professional in her communication and we had good conversations. She was interested not only in learning about the position, but in learning about my mom. She had a very positive attitude and caring manner.
