About Me

Back in my home country, I have a niece, and she has rheumatoid arthritis. That's when my caregiving began because we would all take turns caring for her. I know how much it means to people when they have a good caregiver. They get more lively, and they don't feel so sick or feel so sorry for themselves. I like to make my patients happy. I like my patients to know that life goes on. I give them energy and a sparkle for a future in their lives. It makes me very happy to be able to provide this feeling for my patients. It means a lot to me when they bless me for doing a good job. Caregiving is a two-way street, I'm giving them energy and strength for life, and they are giving me energy back. My life means something with this field of work. I can give hope to people and give life to people. I like to have a friendly relationship with my patients, getting to understanding each other. I'm a very good listener, and I learn a lot from my patients. Sometimes I will sing and dance for them, anything to make them happy. One time, I did a fashion show for my patient and she thought it was hysterical. When we live together, we have to make each other happy.

Nino took care of my aunt Anne for two and a half years. She is without a doubt the most amazing caregiver, chef, home organizer and all around coordinator that I have ever encountered. Her warmth, knowledge, positive attitude and and sweet nature always brought a smile to my aunt's face. Without Nino, It would not have been possible for my aunt to stay home where she wanted to be surrounded by her art and loved ones. Nino and my aunt connected in such a wonderful way. Even when my aunt and times got difficult, Nino's caring and nurturing ways made her and our family feel like we were in the best hands imaginable. We are forever grateful to have had all our paths cross. If or when I need some to look after me or another loved one, there isn't anyone else I would even consider.

Nina was my aunt's caregiver, confidant, companion, cook, and best friend for eight years. Nina lived with my aunt in my aunt's house from 2008 until her death at age 92 from esophogeal cancer in March 2016. Nina is a warm and caring person and extremely trustworthy. She's well educated, well spoken and a dignified and elegant woman. I live 45 minutes away from my aunt's home so I saw her about once a month, but spoke to her on the phone at least once a week. Until 2015 when the cancer was diagnosed, my aunt was pretty healthy. She was very social, and Nina took her to "Red Hat" meetings and other functions. Once she got sick, I spoke to Nina frequently and found her to be an exceptional communicator. Her technical skills are also top shelf. There were hundreds of times that she went above and beyond her job requirements. For example, when my aunt could only eat a liquid diet, Nina went on the Internet and talked to everyone she met to get tricks about how to make the diet more appealing. My aunt had many caregivers over the past three years and they were never as good as Nina. I can't give her a higher recommendation.

Nina was employed as a caregiver in my family from February 2001 until March 2007. Her primary duty was to attend to my mother-in-law who had dementia and heart problems. Nina was an invaluable member of our family for those six years. She helped with home care, organizing doctor appointments, dealt with medications, took regular walks with my mother-in-law and tried to keep my mother-in-law mentally stimulated and physically active as much as possible. Nina is a great motivator and a very positive person. Over the past five years, we have turned to Nina for further part-time help when she was off from her current job. When available, she has been for there for us. Nina is an extraordinary person. She is very honest, kind, trustworthy, reliable, and caring. She is a hard worker, punctual, organized in carrying out her duties, and very dependable. I recommend Nina without reservation.
