About Me

I did this type of job back home because I used to live with my grandpa. My parents lived in Germany, so I lived with my grandparents, and that's how I grew to love the elderly. My aunt is a nurse, so when I came to the United States, she helped introduce me to my first case. I have love for the job and for the work. I like to spend time with the elderly; I love to hear their stories. I have worked with a few veterans, and I love to hear their war stories. I have the passion to help, and truly the last thing I think about is money. I'm very friendly and easy to deal with. I'm an easy going person, and I'm always laughing. I'm extremely observant of my clients and their changes. My judgment about the job is usually right. My priority is always safety for my client; I never want to see my client fall. For fun, I like watching the news and sports. I like to be updated about the world and what's going on. I like to read, also.

Recommendations

Nana was heaven sent to us. He cared for my dad in October 2013 until March 2017. Dad had many medical issues that prevented him from living independently. He had chronic blood loss, which rendered him very weak. Dad could not stand on his own, required oxygen, and had a catheter, which led to multiple urinary tract infections. Nana methodically took care of all his daily living needs and keep in close contact with me during this time. To say that Nana went above and beyond is an understatement. I truly believe that it was a miracle that we found him and that he was a gift from God. I have absolutely complete confidence that he is is an excellent caregiver.

Nana cared for my dad the last six months of his life from July 2012 until January 2013. Dad had dementia and was bedridden. He needed help with all of his personal hygiene, meal preparation, and general housekeeping. Nana is a kind and affable person. He and my dad got along incredibly well. Nana always went out of his way to make sure that dad was comfortable and well cared for. I am grateful that we had Nana help us during this very arduous time. I can't imagine what we would have done without him. I recommend Nana as a caregiver without reservation.
