I love helping people and always have. I just recently moved back to the area and need a job and would rather do something I enjoy that helps people. Most of my job experience is working with kids but I have done care giving before and there are a lot of similarities between working with kids and care giving. Anything I don't know how to do I am very eager to learn and I learn quick. I am strong which is helpful when it comes to mobility and transfers. I would prefer not to live in but if it's needed I can. I will be living in Clearlake, CA starting in September. Until then I am in Willits and rarely have service so email is the best way to get ahold of me firstname.lastname@example.org.
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.
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.
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.
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 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 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 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.
