I love helping people and seeing them smile. Every senior requires their own level of assistance but also like to be independent as well, I have an appreciation for everyone's abilities and love giving help and support to assist with their disabilities. I was recently the caregiver for an elderly man named Jack for the past three years. Unfortunately he has passed. Jack was 90 when he passed. I worked with him for 3 years and it was my absolute pleasure. He had Parkinson's disease as well as onset dementia and needed extensive care with most aspects of ADL's but could perform certain tasks independently. This has taught me that not all peoples limitations are the same, we must work to figure out strengths and weaknesses so we can be of assistance and not take away ones independence.

I am a personable, educated and experienced caregiver. I have 30 years of dedicated service to families and their loved ones. A previous CNA and educated in the nursing sciences I strive to bring the best care and most importantly, the respect and love for the patient and family that is needed during trying times.
I'm a very caring and patient person. I've assisted my elderly grandparents since 9 years old. Although not knowing it was an actual job, I did it because it was for them. I treat my clients as if they were part of my own family. I started babysitting at 10 from newborn to 10 years old. I enjoy helping others in whatever I'm able to.
My names Christine, I'm 32 years old and have been doing caregiving for the last two years. I was drawn to the field after my grandmother fell ill and I helped her through it. I am a very respectful person, trustworthy, great work ethic and friendly. I find caregiving has really enriched my life and given it direction as well as enabled a lot of personal growth. It's satisfying to do something truly good for other people everyday.
Families hire me to make this part of their life cycle memorable and fun. We go places, reminisce and participate in life's journey, gracefully. I especially enjoy serving patient's unique physical, emotional, and social needs related to their cultural preferences which make the individual feel acknowledged and special. I earned my CNA, HHA at Allan Hancock College and LVN at Cuesta College after Majoring in Psychology at Cal Poly in San Luis Obispo. What they say: "Engaging Licensed Vocational Nurse with a demonstrated track record earning, the National Humana Healthcare Nursing Award of Excellence" (2016). CARES Certified by the Alzheimer's Association in accordance with the Dementia Care for Geriatrics. What my patients say, "Don't ever forget me."
I am honest, dependable, hard working, pay close attention to detail and try to maintain as much of a normal routine as possible. I first found my love for caregiving as I cared for my father in 2015 on Hospice. I love building a bond with a client and the family, which makes me able to provide the best possible care and the family can rest assured their loved ones needs will be met effortlessly and efficiently.
What makes me a great caregiver the key words is CARE, I care. I became interested in caregiving after my beloved grandmother became ill and passed away from cancer in my twenties.I felt every client should be treated and loved as I would have wanted my grandmother cared for, this was the beginning of my caregiving journey. I enjoy the most is making my client feel the true meaning of cared for.

I'm will travel 40 mile radius for the right position, Cayucus, Cambria, SLO, Los Oso. $15-20 rates depending on the care needed Thank you.
I am warm hearted and care so much about everyone in general. What attracted me to become a caregiver is as a young girl i always seen my grandma take care of my great aunt who was sick and I also use to help her . And I knew from there on I wanted to be there and care for people. I enjoy the smiles I get and to hear how happy i made people. My personal achievement is how far I've come with being patient.
When I was a teenager, my grandmother needed extra care and my mother didn't always have time to do everything necessary, so I stepped in and shared in the care of my grandmother. She always told me that I would make a great care giver and that I could bring joy to alot of people due to my compassionate personality. Also, when my late husband had Leukemia, I cared for him in all facets of the care, including bathing, feeding, helping in the bathroom, etc., until he died 2 years ago. I also cared for my best friend, til she died from heart failure a few years ago. I believe that these experiences have solidified my ability and desire to help others, even if it is simply in the capacity of companion. **About my fee; my fee ranges any where between 13.00 per hour to 15.00 per hour depending on the case, the work involved and the time of day. For over nites and live-ins, I am willing to quote a flat fee to save you money.
I became a caregiver first to my grandmother who suffered from Alzheimer's it's a very sad disease to watch. But we wanted what time she did have to be as good for her as possible. Older people have always had my respect. Ive grown up in such a different way when respect was part of life and I feel compelled to continue giving them respect when they can no longer do for themselves. To nurture ,love and give quality care for them as I'd want done for my loved ones and to keep them clean happy and well taken care of. I have since been with 5 other elders through the end of there lives and have seen a litany of different needs that have taught me alot about caretaking from clients with strokes, cancer, catheters, transfers, bed baths, toileting and handling prescription care. I've also completed the training available to me pertaining to Care Taking..
