Valia L has worked with PHC since 2014 as a live-in hourly and 24 hour caregiver.
For Valia, being a caregiver is a second profession that is to be taken seriously. She was a full-time caregiver for a client in their late 80s who suffered from dementia, multiple strokes, hypertension, and cancer. While working with her client, Valia managed all aspects of his care, provided transportation to all appointments, and prepared meals tailored to specific dietary restrictions.
Prior to becoming a caregiver, Valia was an instructor in Ancient Greek, Western European, Russian classical, Christian and ancient Slavonic literature. She served as a mentor for new teachers and a sponsor for student teachers. Additionally, she holds a Master's degree in Literature and even taught at university level. Her background in the classroom has given Valia the necessary skills to be an exceptional, responsible, and trustworthy caregiver. She bonds with clients and quickly becomes an indispensable part of any individual's care plan. Valia is also a talented artist.
