About MeI have been a caregiver for 12 years and absolutely love working with the elderly. Knowing that the work I do makes them feel more comfortable is very rewarding to me. For some people, taking care of others is just a job. But for me, it is so rewarding and I put everything I have into my work. When my clients see me, it brings a smile to their face because they know I have come to help them that day and they are relieved and looking forward to working with me. I particularly enjoy getting to know my clients by listening to their stories and am always fascinated by each person's unique history.
" Winsome took care of my husband, who had Parkinson's Disease, for two years. She was absolutely wonderful, taking care of his every need. Winsome is soft spoken, but firm when needed. She is incredibly respectful, conscientious, trustworthy and very empathetic. I highly recommend Winsome -- she is an excellent caregiver."
- Joan S., New York
" I have known Winsome for over 20 years. At all times during this period she exhibited excellence in character, reliability, and loyalty, and a keen sense of attention to duty. She practices the highest level of morality, honesty, and accountability in all her endeavors and dealings. Winsome will bring to all her endeavors the desire for hard work, a continual desire for learning, qualities of kindness, fairness, and thoughtfulness, and always with her jovial, positive and can-do attitude. I proudly and strongly recommend Winsome as a most suitable addition to anyone who would hire her."
- Zaman W., New York
" Winsome is my former landlord and over the past eight years has become a personal friend. She is one of the most dedicated individuals that I've ever known, especially as it pertains to her job. She's always punctual, never missing a day or calling in sick. Over the years I've come to know Winsome as a person of integrity. She's pleasant and easy going. She's a very selfless person, putting her family and everything before herself. She's like an "energizer bunny;" she's just always on the move. I would recommend Winsome for any job she aspires to have because she is more than capable of doing a great job and she's more than worthy of it."
- Randeen G., New York
" I am the presiding Pastor of Winsome's congregation and find her to be a very honest, dependable, and conscientious person. She is always on time and when given a task, she accomplishes it on time."
