I retired from state employment as a secretary nine years ago, and decided to start a new career that would give me an opportunity to be of service to others. Caregiving has been the perfect second career for me. I started my first care giving job with the Sacramento Senior Companion Program. As a volunteer, I provided care and companionship for elderly women for one year. I worked with clients through the Seniors Helping Seniors Program after that, but for the past seven years, I've primarily worked part time for clients through the County of Sacramento's In-Home Support Services Program (IHSS). My duties include basic housekeeping, and providing transportation to doctor's appointments, grocery stores, and other locations as needed. I also offer advocacy services for clients with financial, medical, or home service issues; research prescription information; provide home safety advice; and offer companionship. I'm always eager to learn new things, and welcome any questions you may have about my experience and qualifications. At this time, I hope to find part time work during weekdays. I may be open to working occasional weekends. My car is almost new, and my DMV record is clean. I prefer that job sites be less than 20 miles from my home in Antelope. Thank you for taking the time to review my profile, and I hope we will have an opportunity to work together in the future!

Hi, I am a registered Care Provider with the state ID# 7507076149. I have been a care visitor for 17 years. I care-visited a lady for 7 yrs as a volunteer, then part-time paid through IHSS before she went into assisted living. During this time, I held a corporate job. I attended college studying Gerontology, which is my passion. I have always been involved with care giving. When my father passed, I decided that I would do what really matters to me which is care giving. I enjoy knowing that I am truly making a difference everyday in someone's life as well as giving respite to families. I am responsible, punctual, take initiative, am patient, a good listener and I communicate well. I feel it's important that a person remain as independent as long as possible. Often seniors are overlooked yet they have so much to contribute and share. I would welcome an opportunity to interview. I am happy to have you check my references, these are families I am currently visiting or visited for a good length of time. I will gladly submit to a DOJ check and drug screen check. Thank you for viewing my profile.
I am personable and enjoy being a home care provider. I became a caregiver because I wanted to help others by assisting them with their activities of daily living. I enjoyed caring for many seniors over the years and learned quite a lot from them. I believe I'm a great caregiver because I have had extensive training in a skilled nursing facility as well as in many private homes. I also enjoy seeing the difference that I often make in people's lives. I became a nursing assistant back in 1982 and acquired my Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) license at the convalescent hospital where I worked. I then went on to work for several home care agencies and acquired my Certified Home HeaIth Aide (CHHA) license. I have worked as an independent contractor caregiver for years. I am willing to commute for full-time employment. I have great references and will be happy to submit them upon request.
I have over 20 years of experience in providing quality and sincere care in private homes. I'm a Certified caregiver. I have experience providing all different levels of care from those independent to the ones bedridden. I provide conscious care and have a passion for caring for the elderly. The joy of being a part of that experience is unmatchable and a blessing I cherish. Im a Caregiver who really cares!
I am a joyful optimist. I am attentive, trustworthy and dependable. I appreciate the opportunity to provide patient, tender hearted care to vulnerable aging people. I have chosen to become a caregiver because I desire meaningful employment. I enjoy being a strong source of support and encouragement to individuals and families in need. Perhaps my most gratifying acheivements as a caregiver have been the ability to provide exceptional palliative care to elderly patients and emotional support to their loved ones.
Caregiving is one of my passion. Have been one for the past 13 yrs. The feeling of been cared for & learning what elderly are going through drew me a sense of love attending to their needs daily gives me a purpose to do my best . Reminiscing with them brings me joy, laughter & emotional at times . Am proud to be a caregiver to an elderly couple for last 12 yrs till their very last. At present am at a memory care assisted living doing what I love best. My experience , learning, & training attained at nursing homes , assisted living & inhome care gave me more confidence & increases my love to caregiving .
Working with people in a home care setting, it is essential that a caregiver feel the desire to want to help. By showing both empathy and compassion caregivers will let the person they are caring for know that they care about the person and want to do what they can to help them. I love to give the client the help they need and keep a smile on their face
Nursing is a calling for me. Making sure that people receive the best possible care I am able to provide is my most important goal. Safety first always, compassion, dignity, privacy, respect and hope are all important attribute's that I find essential to good nursing care. It is a meaningful gratifying experience to know that I can add to someone's life and possibility bring goodness when health issues can be a challenge and so often depressing. Good nursing requires being completely present while in someone's home or in a facility. My standards are no cell phones while at work, no clock watching, and I always address people with respect by using MR.or Mrs. (last name) until I am encouraged otherwise. Using Mama or Papa and other terms of endearment are not appropriate for me personally in professional healthcare. I use old fashion "yes Mam, yes Sir, no Mam, no Sir. and in an audible understandable language. CNA #00648980
My name is Margaret and I am mostly experienced in Memory Care. I like caring for Memory Care clients. But I do have clients with other conditions, such as, stroke, diabetes and congested heart failure etc.. In 2011 when my ex mother in law became sick I became one of her caregivers. It was then that I realized how much I enjoyed caring for her. I do believe this is my calling. I was once offered a position as manager of a home health company. I did not think I could do that job. I was right because I need to be the caregiver not the office person. I love my job. I like everything about caregiving. I love my seniors. I love their stories and their laughter. I'm happy when they are happy. I look forward everyday to seeing my seniors. I love cooking, cleaning and fussing over my seniors, so I'm a natural at caregiving. Remember if you love what you do it's never a job. My fee is between $20 and $35 an hour.
Caregiving has been a part of my whole life. Family and friends whenever in need. Becoming a caregiver was my calling. Being compassionate with someone makes us all better people, regardless of ones capacity to care or their need of care...it's my goal to do my best to keep my client comfortable and not needing anything. My personal achievement only in part was going to college and getting my Bachelors Degree in Health Admin. My goals are not finished, but caring for others along the way is what my calling is. I have taken care of my mother until her death from complications of MS, my grandson since he was a baby....currently 16, but losing his battle everyday. So caring about people and their dignity and their rights to have care and compassion in their lives is important to me. Even if that means never saying a word and just being present.
Because I love taking care of people. The most that like being a Caregiver is to be able to help someone that is not able to do for themselves, be a companion for those who don't have anyone to talk to. Seeing smiles on people face and knowing they are happy. Knowing I went to school to learn about what I love to do is caring , motivate, appreciate the people I care for and their families. Well I went to school for Certified Nurse Assistant in 2005, graduated March 2006. I've been Certified now for 9 years I have ongoing Continuing Education (CE) . I'm also a Certified Direct Support Professional (DSP) for 6 years caring for people with developmental and behavior problems and many more .
I'm an honest caring person, when I was younger I helped my parents look after my grandparents. I love my grandparents so much and respect them a lot. I have 7 years of caregiving experience. I know what'slike to make them smile. I love playing the piano and singing. Caregiving is all about showing our elders love, care and respect.
