Hello, I am Stephen and I absolutely love my time spend with the older generation. I enjoy spending hours talking and getting to know my clients. Since I was in my 20's I have loved going to the nursing facilities and visiting with the elderly. Caring for the elderly is my passion. Someday it will be my full time business. For the last nine years I worked for one client and she became my best friend, she and I had spent so much time together. She has moved forward to her heavenly home now. I can do just about anything, I have a degree as a nurse assistant, CPR certified, TB free certified, I have had lots of nursing classes, thought I wanted to be and RN, but it just is not the right fit for me, I like a more personal sitting. I can cook, clean, visit, handyman jobs and just visit. I am honest and strait forward. I have the references and background check to prove it.
I have been a caregiver since I was a child. My dad had polio and my mom had other physical problems so, I became their caregiver. As an adult, I have enjoyed Hospice work, working with dementia patients and working with children. I feel like helping others is what my purpose in life is. I enjoy it and love meeting and learning from new people.

After in-home caregiving for my great grandmother and outpatient caregiving for my two grandparents, I felt drawn to helping people who could no longer help themselves. I graduated a year early from high school to become my great grandmother's caregiver at 17. I was with her for a year before she relocated to live with her two nephews. For my two grandparents, I traveled from my home in Searcy to Portland to stay for approximately 4 months during my grandfather's cancer treatment recovery. Caregiving has been the most fulfilling work I have ever been able to do, and though I have not been a part of the caregiving world for very long, I do intend on making a career out of it.
I have been a caregiver all my life. It is rewarding but has its challenges and opportunities. I am 56 years old but I am in good health and I have cared for my parents and my spouses parents also I have cared for my spouse. These things include tuberculosis coughing, my dad but he passed away from a blood clot passing through his leg,my mother had cancer, my father in law had dementia and alzheimer's and parkinson, my step dad was burned and I cared for him with 3rd degree burn but I did not change his bandages, schizophrenia was what my mother in law had and my spouse had colon leakage and had a colostomy which I helped care for him until it was reversed he was diagnosed with diverticular The parents have passed which I was the primary care provider. I started getting paid when my girlfriend ask me to care for one of her patients because her and her mother had something they had to do one weekend and I got paid for it and I have been doing it ever since. I have had great satisfaction in the result of my experiences in taking care of the persons that were trusted in my care. I have sit and watched an IV drip and make sure the patient was comfortable. I have cared for a man that his wife needed a break for the weekend so she could get some rest. I have taken care of a comatose patient so the mother could go get her hair done. I have achieved and I am proud of me because I am a caregiver and I have love and compassion for people.
