About Me

I enjoy helping and working with the elderly. I have been working in this field for a while and I have a lot of experience. I am a hardworking, assertive, industrious, and a committed individual who uses skills and talents to support my clients. I believe my caring personality, along with my excellent human relations and social skills, would definitely prove to be an assert to my client. I am capable of working alone when caring for my client or involve them and make changes to suit their needs. I take care of my clients as if they were my family. I am a reliable person, and I take my job very seriously and I try to do everything to the best of my ability. For fun, I love to listen to soft music and I love to watch tennis.

Recommendations

Martine was a godsend when she arrived as a caregiver in 2022 as my sister's Alzheimer's dementia worsened. Martine was extremely resourceful, finding ways to connect with her in her decline. The disease caused my sister, who had been an accomplished professional, to behave in unexpected ways that put herself in peril. Martine managed to find a loving way to defuse every difficult situation and win my sister's trust and confidence. During the 7 months that she worked with my sister, Martine's loving kindness, deep experience, and professionalism make her a precious resource for anyone needing care for a loved one.

Martine worked with my parents from January 2020 until May 2021. When first hired, she mostly worked with my father. After he passed in August 2021, she continued working for our family, caring for our mother. She left our employ only because my mother passed away in May. Martine is an excellent home aide. She was attentive to each of my parents' needs when the level of personal care and attention increased as they each, in turn, became less able to care for themselves. Martine was able to step up competently and tactfully. She helped with daily activities such as bathing, toileting, dressing, and medications. She is also an amazing cook who made tasty meals for my mother after my father died and my mother no longer had the energy to prepare meals for herself. Martine is very responsible and loyal to her patients. Both of my parents were very fond of Martine. She is intelligent and understands immediately when something is asked of her. She has a no-nonsense manner that both my parents responded to, as well as a very caring heart. Each of my parents would look forward to Martine's shifts, knowing things would go smoothly and that their needs would be attended to. I particularly want to note that Martine was wonderful as each of my parents reached the last days of their lives. She sat with them when they couldn't sleep, listened to them when they talked about their lives and their memories, and sympathized with their sadness over losing their strength. I unreservedly recommend Martine as a caregiver for anyone who needs help caring for themselves, and especially anyone nearing the end of life.

I am a physician's assistant and I worked with Martine from 2017-November 2018 in a very busy, inner city cardiovascular center. Martine's position at the center is a patient care assistant. What I love about Martine is how sharp she is and she's very fast at picking things up. She's like a worker bee and has great common sense and great patient centered care. She once even saved someone's life because she was able to notice they were showing signs of decline and immediately notified the staff to intervene. Martine takes vital signs for the patients and really just assists with anything else we need, she basically functions like a nurse. She shows initiative and always puts her patient first. If I ran my own clinic, I would definitely want to hire Martine to work there. You won't regret working with her.
