More Caregivers You Might Like
Some years back, my late husband was diagnosed with ALS and I became his primary caregiver. Years later as I decided not to continue working in retail, I became a phlebotomist and realized how much I enjoyed Patient Care, and realized how much compassion I felt for patients and their families and realized how much I enjoyed that kind of work. I transferred to a training program to become a Patient Care Technician. I worked in that capacity for several months. I loved my job but found that I would prefer working in a home setting or somewhere where more individual attention can be paid to patients.Although hospitals provide excellent care, there is usually pressure to spend as little time as possible interacting with patients and their families. Sometimes there is a need for more individual attention and patients may benefit greatly from that attention. I currently work one on one as a caregiver and find greater satisfaction from this than I did when there was so much pressure to spend less time with each patient.
Hmm...about me? When I took the class to become certified, I had no idea the impact it would have on my life, much less, how it would impact the person I am today. I think being personable and empathetic are important qualities that have been enhanced throughout the last nine years. I never put much though into becoming a caregiver, it just kind of came about, but now I feel like its a way for me to step away from "self." Whatever may be going on in life gets left at the door or at the time clock, then I step into another "self." Its hard to describe the way this type of work makes me feel which, in turn, has a positive affect on my job performance and I like to think people can see this shine through in my personality. I can honestly say that I'm happy to have gained the friendships, knowledge and experience I wouldn't have otherwise had a chance to gain. My most recent personal achievement is being enrolled to start on online classes to take the next step in the healthcare feild.
