PROFESSIONAL CAREGIVER

Tamara has worked with PHC since 2015 as a live-in hourly and 24 hour caregiver.

During her time at PHC, Tamara has demonstrated an ability to connect with clients, understand their needs, and follow care plans. She is knowledgeable, skilled, and committed to making a difference.

Prior to joining our team, Tamara worked as a caregiver for 5 years. While on board at PHC, Tamara has worked primarily with two clients. Her first client required live-in care, assistance with all transfers as well as assistance with all activities of daily living. While working with this client, Tamara diligently communicated changes with the client’s family, Care Coordinator, and hospice team. She was commended on several occasions by the client’s family for always going above and beyond to engage her client as much as possible.

At her other assignment, Tamara was also recognized for her patience, punctuality, and understanding of her client’s condition and unique circumstances. Tamara has connected with our mission to deliver consistency in care.
