This coming December will be 9 years since I moved to this country. January 2019 will mark my 9 year anniversary working with Sitters On Standby.
Joining this team as a Nanny for the first 5 years, and then as a Care Giver for seniors, has been a roller coaster of emotions. All of them have been a learning experience for which I am grateful.
Thanks to SOS, I have had the chance to help wonderful parents raise some awesome children. Through that experience, I managed to make new friends and build lasting relationships with some of the families. Although I don’t work as a nanny anymore, I’m still part of their life and I’m so grateful they’re in mine.
I’m currently working as an Aide for Seniors and it has turned out to be one of my biggest blessings. This is so much more than just a job to me. I feel I have the chance to really help someone in the simplest most meaningful ways. When they open the door to their life and experiences, you are given the opportunity to learn so much more than books could ever teach. You are given the opportunity to be the best you can be. I truly cherish all of the moments I have shared with all my clients and look forward to so many more. Nothing is more satisfying than looking at their faces at the end of the day and seeing a smile.
For all those reasons, I appreciate every single family I have worked through the years and allowed me to be a small part of their lives. I am also so grateful to SOS for giving me the opportunity to take this path.
