Hello I am a very experienced caregiver who is knowledgeable in many areas of providing care for the elderly. I have worked in health care as a Medical Assistant so I have solid understanding of different conditions and working with doctors regarding health needs of patients. I am a very compassionate person who values integrity and communication. I really enjoy helping people and being of service to older folks I tend to understand and appreciate them. I am really proud to be a Reiki Master Practitioner it is a dream to help people feel the benefit of peace and relaxation.
I love creating a one-on-one companionship and being able to create a strong bond. My personality traits are patience, attentiveness, dependability, cleanliness, and trustworthiness. I enjoy being a caregiver, because I love trying to get my patients to reminisce and share their memories, I love hearing them laugh and watch them smile, and most importantly making sure they are healthy and in a safe environment. My personal achievement I am proud of is being able to have such a strong bond with my patient that I become more of a family member than just a caregiver.
I got into caregiving as a fluke and instantly fell in love with it and the people that I have been able to help and care for. I've always had interest in the medical field and I learned that caregiving is fairly similar to it, I saw that through caregiving I create a personal connection and that's why I chose caregiving. I enjoy the little moments about caregiving, when a person served says something unexpected and it creates a happy memory/moment for us both. A personal achievement I am proud of is taking first place in bodybuilding competitions, it's the prep that I am most proud of, not quitting when it's hard or when I'm tired.
I believe I am a great caregiver because I treat each person I am caring for as if they are my own family member. I give them the care I would want my mother or father to receive. I have been a caregiver for almost 5 years and in the last 6 months have received my CNA certification.
Who Am I? My name is Garret and I am a health care professional in my early 20's born and raised in northern California. My time living in nor'cal has only been interrupted once to attend Basic combat training in Oklahoma; because of this I have been known to bond well with veterans and seniors of a 'rural' disposition. I consider the morals and values learnt during my service to be the foundation of the man I am today. Who I am. LDRSHP: Loyalty, Duty, Respect, Selfless service, Honor, and Personal Courage What I do. My career in healthcare began post enlistment, I became a certified EMT to expand on the knowledge and training I received in the military. After becoming an EMT and developing my professional skills and experience I branched out to further my medical knowledge. I was sponsored by a local business to attend a school provided by the Red Cross. There I became a certified nursing assistant and graduated with honours in the class. It is my hope to enroll in an LVN program next year to pave the way for more opportunities and experience. My desire is to specialize in wound care.
I became a full time paid caregiver six years ago. However, back in my home country, caregiving is part of almost every family life. We look after our parents and grandparents till they pass on to the other life. Since becoming a caregiver in California, I began to love the job and began to connect closely with all my clients. I love to listen to clients stories and what they were before they need assistance with daily living. I really love to listen and share these life stories and it feels so satisfying to know that we are taking care of people who had given their services to this great nation. I love keeping my clients happy and sharing stories of their past lives and also sharing mine. I have handled some critical hospice cases and someone who was diagnosed to live for only 6 months. I took care of the person, taking care of his wounds until they clear, and keeping the person alive for over 2 years to the amazement of hospice and the family themself. Caregiving is in our blood. I think of the love and care that our parents shared with us and I feel it a duty that we return this love and care to our seniors and loved ones.
