I started my career as a medical assistant; however, I felt my true calling is to care for seniors. I found joy and satisfaction in caregiving - I don’t consider this a career but rather a vocation with purpose.

How would you describe your profession as a caregiver?
Every client has different needs, and to be a compassionate caregiver, it’s vital to value and support their uniqueness. I help my clients daily to maintain their independence and encourage them to make choices. I believe in following my heart and practice persistence to manage my client’s care effectively.

Care Indeed allows caregivers to grow throughout their journeys. The office staff is entirely supportive, and there are many opportunities for growth as a caregiver, including advanced training programs. The company’s leadership values and supports caregivers in every possible way. The company, culture, and home care services center are on providing the best senior care possible, and I genuinely believe we are making a better world for seniors and caregivers.

Is there a golden rule you live by? If so, how did it help you improve your career?
Small acts of kindness create a significant impact on others. I always try my best to help others during hard times. The beginning of great things starts with a small effort. To make a difference in someone else’s life, it’s the small acts of kindness that count. I support and care for seniors by understanding their individual needs and try to find solutions with compassion.
