Additional Information

I have years of experience working and caring for elderly citizens, for example my grandmother and my father, who needed care when they were sick and in recovery. I developed a passion for caring for the elderly since then and would be willing and able to provide services in this field. My relational, communication, companionship, conversational, listening skills, to mention a few, have been vital in these environments. In addition, my experience as a dietary aide gives me the opportunity to provide not just physical care and assistance but also pay attention to diet needs and concerns of clients.
