I am empathetic, compassionate, nurturing, attentive, dependable, committed, organized, happy, patient, honest, industrious, quiet, energetic, conscientious, clean and kind. As a child, I was always in the company of older folks in my community - so much so, that when I was 17 years old I took care of a 76 years old family friend on the weekends for 3 months while still in high school. I was always running to assist them when the need arises. The elderly comes first for me all the times. I was a volunteer at my church's Assisted Living Facility for 5 years, helping the residents with grooming, dressing, feeding, exercises and just general companionship - chatting and making them happy and joyful. I just have this natural passion and respect for them and humanity in general. I enjoy the satisfaction that engulfs me when I perform a task that they might feel a little embarrassed about but, because of the manner in which it was done, (privacy, respect) they just looked at me and say thank you so much, Joan or just smile confirming satisfaction. I also feel ecstatic and encouraged when family members and friends use words like - "Joan, you are the best" "you are a God-send", "you are special", "Joan, I could never do what you do". and you do your work with such professionalism. I am very proud that, through hard work and commitment to serve , I have gained the trust and respect of all seniors I have met and cared for.

Im a caregiver because I enjoy helping others, helping others is rewarding to me. Home health is a way for the elderly to continue to live in their home and still feel comfortable in their aging years. I've been doing home health since 1994. I have a background check and CPR. I have my own car.
I am a loving caregiver with over 15 years of experience. I began as a teenager taking care of my own grandmother who suffered from Alzheimer's. I was trained in a hospital setting as a CNA. I have worked in multiple settings throughout the years, including; assisted living facilities, hospitals, and home care. I prefer to work in home versus a facility, as it allows for a more personal connection and attention. Having cared for my own ill family members, I can understand and relate to how stressful this time is. I pride myself in caring for every person as if they were my own loved one.
I have been in the medical field for 20 years working in doctor's offices. My passion is to be a caregiver now. I realize that patients with dementia and Alzheimer's need special care and patience. I have also work with Parkinson's patients. I am medically knowledgeable such as medication and conditions of the patient and when my other patient was in the hospital they wanted me there so that I could speak with the doctor and relay all the information to the family. I am very detail-oriented and punctual.

I am a great caregiver because, I am compassionate, trustworthy, dependable, i am a great listener, i am a people person, and i respect their religion and their political status. I become a caregiver back in 1985, i know that caring is my passion so i went ahead and got certified as a CNA, HHA, & PCA. I become a caregiver simply because i offer love, undivided attention and great companionship. What i like mostly about being a caregiver is definitely the opportunity to express my passion directly to my clients. i get first hand to help them look and feel better about themselves, because i am also a licensed Esthetician and nail technician, so i give them manicures and pedicures, partial foot massage (if they are not diabetic) i give a relaxing facial too. I apply makeup and shampoo and roller set hair if they so desire. I have a few personal achievement that i am proud of, but the one that stands out to me, is the day i got my Certificate in the mail and got hired in an Assisted Living Facility. Over all i have great experience and superb references. Looking forward to working with you or your love one.
My love for the elderly probably started because I was raised by by dearly beloved aunt who had Parkinson from an early age. For over 25 years, I've chosen to take on this role as a caregiver after seeing the need for caring people. My joy in doing so is to help those that are in need ,live their best life for as long as they possible can!
I am 39 years old and a mother of 4. I have 3 boys and 1 girl. I have been a caregiver for elderly, for over 5 years now. I enjoy meeting new people and love all the stories from their youth. I enjoy being part of helping them smile and reminisce. I also appreciate the friendships I have gained. My youngest child is 10 and I have a lot of free time for work nowadays. I am happy to help others, in any way I can. It is an awesome opportunity to help people to enjoy life again. I am loving and have been told that I have a way with elderly patients. We seem to be able to connect on a lot of levels. I keep in touch with the family's that I have worked with throughout the years. I consider them dear friends of mine and they are my best references. I am taking courses to further my education on multiple things, I enjoy the knowledge and I believe it makes me a better caregiver.

( 1 ) I love people, I feel great when I can put a smile on their face, and a hug has this healing power we all need. (2) While caring for my husband, I felt this warmth, a fulfillment in making him comfortable. While working in a nursing home, the patients there needed to feel as if they still mattered.. and to assure them they did, still makes me smile. (3) Caring for and loving my husband until God called his name, and being most honored to have shared in his peace as he took his last breath.
