Mariana made my life so much easier. She is a go-getter and was super efficient running my errands in a timely manner. Whenever I needed my kids picked up from school or taken to soccer practice, I could count on Mariana to be there promptly. The saying "time is money" couldn't be more true. Mariana would help assist me with emails pertaining to my photography business. She was super dependable and would email clients back, which saved me so much time and unneeded stress. She even helped plan some of my social media posts and came up with captions (which is something I don't enjoy doing myself). Mariana is extremely trustworthy and became like family to me! We will miss her greatly!

Responds quickly
Hi, I'm an active person, a non smoker, live a healthy lifestyle(Pescatarian). I'm experienced, personable, dependable, hard working(not lazy). I'm a mom of 1 grown child. I've been watching babies/children since I was 12 years old. Background in Early Childhood Development, was a assistant teacher for roughly 3 years & certified in First Aid/CPR For All Ages, clean background check. *Proof of Covid-19 Vaccinations* Why do I choose to be a nanny? I adore children with all my heart and I think it shines through in my work that I do, to me it's such a rewarding job! I enjoy helping families get a nap schedule in place, helping children learn how to problem solve on their own and always encourage children to learn through fun activities & playing. I'm also very organized, great at schedules or routines(if parents request) these are what I feel are my strong points. Watching children thrive there's no better feeling on earth! I'm a pet owner & animal lover so have no problems with pets.

Linda worked with my family for the past 6 months to care for my son who is almost 2 now. She is an absolute rare gem of a nanny. Some highlights: - My son absolutely ADORED her. Once he started speaking, I would hear him saying "Linda, Linda, Linda" in anticipation of her arriving in the morning. I loved hearing him giggle and laugh playing with her while I was working from home. - Linda listens to you and helps enforce how you want to raise your child while also being an advocate for your child and helping you develop strategies to get through, in my case, some of the tough toddler behaviors. - While so many of the nannies I see nowadays pay attention first to their phone, second to your child, this is not Linda. Linda puts your child front and center. On the playground she's the one playing with your child and ensuring their safety, not sitting on the side on her phone. - Incredibly reliable and punctual, in fact always arrived early to ensure you were never waiting on her.

Registered Nurse Who Loves Caring For People But Doesn T Like All The Bureaucracy Of A Hospital.

Several years caring for seniors and disabled in a skilled nursing unit. RN on stroke unit and CV unit as well. Skills include wound care, diabetes care, elderly care, Alzheimer's care, med administration, infectious disease, mobility assist, catheter/trach/IV care, cardio/stroke patients, Healthcare CPR certified. I am a people person through and through and nothing makes me happier than knowing I've made someone's day a little brighter. Valedictorian of my nursing class. I grew up on a farm and am not afraid of hard work or getting my hands dirty. I'm just tired of hospital work as I don t agree that charting is more important than actual patient care. I am looking to provide private care for all types of patients and am especially fond of caring for the elderly. The golden rule is key. How would I want someone treating my mom? I know how stressful a caregiver's day is. That one question that gives me strength and puts everything in perspective once again.

Lori - WOW! Lori, with her can-do spirit, joined our family about two years ago and the experience couldn't have been better. She came to us at a time when both my mother's Alzheimer's and my father's ALS were rapidly progressing. For my mother, Lori was a kind and compassionate companion. She was able to keep her calm and engaged at times in conversion, in other instances listening to music, doing puzzles, or even out and about on craft supply runs. For my father, Lori was a buddy and a good friend - swapping stories, cracking jokes and, always up for an adventure - of which there were many! As his mobility diminished, Lori, in spite of her bird-like frame, proved herself to be a highly able-bodied individual. She deftly moved my father - who was a larger man of 6ft - from wheelchair to pool, toilets, recliners, and to bed with great care. I am filled with gratitude that she came into our lives and helped make our folk's last bit of time on this planet a joyous experience.

Lezette is absolutely wonderful. She took care of my father for a year and a half until he passed. During that time she became part of our family and one of my fathers dearest friends. We found out its very hard to find decent caregivers who are dependable, caring, and trustworthy. She is born to do this job and she truly cares. My father was very stubborn and wasn't easy to take care. She was able to read his ever changing moods and act accordingly. There is just too many great qualities for me to list. Your family will be blessed to have Lezette take care of your loved one.
