How long have you been with Home Helpers?

 I worked for home helpers for about a year and a half but had to leave for a couple semesters because of a heavy school load. I am back now for the summer and love the company. 

What is your background? 

 I was a primary caregiver for both of my grandmothers. I took them where they needed to go, helped them bathe and go to the restroom, cooked and cleaned, decorated, you name it. Loved every moment with them.

Why do you like working for Home Helpers?

I love showing respect for and loving on our elders. They have so much love and wisdom to share and I truly treasure time spent with them.

What do you enjoy most about being a caregiver? 

 I enjoy knowing that I can make a difference in the lives of people who have spent their whole lives caring for others. Now it is our turn to love and care for them.

I felt like I made a difference in someone’s life when...

 I really feel like I made a difference in both my grandmother’s lives. They had their health issues and would get down in the dumps just like anyone and when I would come in they would smile and I will never forget how much they cared about my visits.

When you are not caregiving, what do you enjoy most?

 When I am not caregiving, I enjoy playing with my dogs, listening to music, going to church and going for walks with my friends.

If you were a superhero, what would your superpower be and why? 

 If I were a super hero, I would want super speed. I could save a ton of money on gas.
