I'm caring and compassionate. Well organized and a self starter. I have a strong respect for the elderly, and became interested in working with them when I was a chef/assistant manager of the dining facility at an independent living center. Since then, I've worked in several different types of living facilities, and then became an activities director to be more hands on. I started my own in home care business in Texas. I'm new to Connecticut. I have extensive experience in different dietary needs, as well as physical and mental needs. I do require my clients be at least partially mobile, and able to assist in their maneuvering.
My philosophy on care, as an extremely compassionate person naturally, is to take as equivalent as possible to how i would want someone to take care of me. Being originally from Africa, we were taught patience and compassion all our life. I was attracted to being a caregiver by the fact that it is care that someone needs but it is an act of love, a constant good deed with which one can earn a living.My peers usually lament about how patient, how considerate and how cool, calm and collected i am under any and all circumstances. I deeply care about people and i always make sure i exhibit such.

I have a passion/ patience for taking care of the elderly. I started taking care of my own grandparents and thats when i knew my help was needed. My greatest joy about helping the elderly is listening to the stories they tell about their childhood. Be able to be there for my family. I'm very responsible, trustworthy, honest, reliable and I love to read and learn new things.
I feel I am a great caregiver because I care about the person as a whole and do not treat them as an object. Also, in almost 25 years I have a wide variety of experiences in a variety of settings. I have taken care of all age groups and have enjoyed all of it for various reasons. I began 5 years after my mother had passed and I had assisted in her care. My training began after leaving the printing industry. Now, I have come to a pinnacle and am attempting nursing school.
I've been an active caregiver for the past 15 years or so, both as a live-in and live-out caregiver. Most of my working experience comes from outside of the US. I started working as a caregiver because needed a job and earn money(do not let yourself fooled by anyone that says otherwise ) and as a single mom of three you can guess that i had no choice in choosing what i considered at that time that i would like. During the years i earned so much more than money. I started out with a job and ended up with having more and more family members as each and one of the patients that i assisted become in some way my mother/father, my daughter/son and a challenge to build up my empathic skills . Ended up understanding that caregiving is not a JOB although it's paid. You treat not just people but a very fragile class of people. They definitely need our assistance in daily chores but that is not enough , they need somebody that does not define them only trough their disability. Caregiving it's not just about taking care of a body it is a 360 degree assistance which consider the person in a holistic way (body,mind and spirit) As a caregiver i might fail in some chores(nobody is perfect) but one thing that i am proud of is that as much as i could i tried to bring joy. Hard but necessary was when I had to assist patients in an point where life comes to an end. In some cases I sing their favourite song, hold a hand, give a caress to the person in need and explain to family members that it is perfectly normal to be scared or to suffer and to assure them that they are not alone.
