I just enjoy helping those that want to retain independence in their own homes. I am a CNA,CHHA and also a Medical Assistant for the state of California. I have experience with special needs adults, Alzheimer's, COPD, stroke, Cancer,Parkinson's, ALS,Diabetes, I know how yo use a Hoyer lift have knowledge of oxygen concentrateors. Thank you for taking the time to review my profile. I look forward to hearing from you.
I. I became a Caregiver because the word "Caregiver" is what I am. I care for humanity with special needs or partial/full assistance and a giver because I give all I have on my reach to those who need to do the things they can't, for example (ADL's) Activities of Daily Living.
2. I like everything I have done so far as a Caregiver. From experiencing clients with the care of only companion to the care of hospice. Many clients I had done care for with different cases and thats what I like about being a caregiver, because those cases are reality in life that make me stronger when the time comes to my love ones or myself also, the satisfaction I feel when a person says thank you with gratitude.
3. The achievement I am proud of is when a client or patient recuperates from a physical or health problem with my care.
4. I can say about myself is what people had told me in my 37yrs. of age. Also, what I truly considered and had known through my years as a Caregiver. I am lovable, caring, funny, smart, responsible, I have good memory of schedules and program a routine, I am a mom of 3 educated and good children of ages 15, 11 and 8, and I am also happily newlywed with a wonderful man. I love to cook healthy foods, clean and organized. I always tried to make sure the other person is comfortable and happy. I have good sense of humor and I also consider myself honest and respectful with others. Joe D.
