I love giving back to our community, Our elders need us the most! They have spent their lives raising us, now it is our turn to help them! My great grandparents raised me, so I've always been a caring person who cares for my fellow peers. Learning about their past and their backgrounds, how they grew up. It makes me feel great to be able to see some one who needs help and be able to give them all I have to offer. My personal achievement is my daughter and my grandma, I was a senior in high school at 17 and found out I was pregnant but I didn't let that stop me from getting my diploma, and because I walked across the stage, I inspired my great grandmother to go back to school and get her diploma, so at the age of 79 my great grandma waked across the stage and received her high school diploma!
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 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.
I started in home care at the age of 20 and have been a caregiver for 3+ years now. I love working in the community and getting to know others. It's very rewarding to know that I made a difference in someone's life. I have a family of my own and am very family oriented. I'm warm, open, and flexible.
I became a caregiver 2 years ago while helping out a friend of the family. Prior to caregiving, I have always worked with children, in preschool settings (Head Start) or have been a foster/ adoptive parent. I have lots of patience, and enjoy spending time with and talking with my clients. Listening to the stories they tell of lives, family and loved ones. I have become a part of some amazing families.
