I believe what makes me a great caregiver is I generally care about the ones I take care of. Some companies tell you that part of your job is not to get close to your clients or patients, that you can't have a relationship with the ones you take care of on a daily basis. I will always go above and beyond for the ones under my care. I always feel and treat them as if they are one of my family members as well. I wouldn't do anything for them that I wouldn't do for my own mom , grandma, aunt, uncle, dad, grandfather. Not only am I there for the client/patient but I'm also there for the families as well. Questions, concerns, suggestions, keeping them up to date on conditions. Communication is big with me on keeping everyone on the same page so that the best care can be given at all times. I became a caregiver because my ex husband was diagnosed with stage 4 prostate cancer. He called me from the hospital asking for my advise and help. I left California to go back to New York to help him threw his treatments and all of his struggles. His fight has been long and hard and he has not given up yet on life. Seeing other family members go in and out of nursing homes being neglected , alone, and losing their will to live has been a struggle and I've taken caregiver positions with all of my terminally ill relatives and a few friends. I want others to feel that their loved ones are safe and taken care of when they are unable to be there with them. That's the main reason why I do what I do. The fulfillment I get when I know I've made a difference for someone else. Whether it's for the patient that is passing or the family members that need that reassurance their loved one is being properly taken care of. I enjoy everything there is to being a care giver.
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.
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.
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.
