A-1 Home Care is thankful to have in home caregivers like Marina Gomez providing 24 hour live in care to elderly and senior clients living in Whittier, Cerritos, La Palma, Artesia, Lakewood and other cities in Los Angeles County.

Marina joined A-1 Home Care 3 years ago and has spent the last year and a half as an at home caregiver for Mrs. E in Cerritos. Marina became a Certified Nurse Aide after working in an office doing accounting. When the economy changed, her sister encouraged her to change to a career in the home care field. Marina discovered that she really enjoys being an in home caregiver to seniors and elderly. She says, “Home Care is not only about earning money to pay bills, it’s about the satisfaction I get helping people. It’s very rewarding work.”

In addition to Mrs. E, Marina also helps Mrs. S in Whittier. “Mrs. S and I have a lot in common. Neither of us are married or have kids. She’s as much my companion and friend as I am hers.” Marina says she enjoys going with Mrs. S to the beauty parlor, shopping or to play bingo and Mrs. S loves her cooking. “Being a live in caregiver as taught me to appreciate the people in my life, especially those I care for – my clients are my companions and my family.” Marina finds the greatest reward of being an in home caregiver in Los Angeles is to see clients recover from illnesses and regain their health. “I know I’ve done my job right when my client’s health improves.”

A-1 Home Care appreciates all of Marina’s hard work and we’re grateful to her caring and compassionate nature.
