I have 3 years of experience working with elderly people. Back home I worked with several retirement houses, and in addition to that, I was a home caregiver for 3 elderly people. I was raised with a disabled father who used to be in a wheelchair, so I took care of him since I was very young, thus I gained a great experience and I started seeing caregiving as a part of my life that I will never give up on. I also worked with disabled people for 3 and a half years. It was one of the best experiences I have ever gone through. I learned a lot from them and I tried to give them my best. I am new to Canada, though I gained experience here after working as a caregiver with a very sweet old woman. Additional Experiences/Qualifications:

I worked as a caregiver for Nicholas Karlis and his wife for 2.5 years in Canada. It was one of the best experiences I have had so far. The Karlis' are an amazing family who cared for me as much I cared for them. You can contact George Karlis to ask about me and my experience with his mother and father (Nicholas and his wife).
