have been in the health care field for over 20 years plus. I am a Pharmacy/IV Technician, Medical Assistant and Medical Office Manager. Although I enjoyed my "work", the most enjoyable and rewarding experiences were the relationships I made with my patients. I have also worked in home health and have cared for patients that have had strokes, dementia and cancer. My passion is making each and every one of my patients know that I respect them as a person, I value their life experiences, where they came from and the wisdom they have gained over the years. My personality is always extremely cheerful, positive and upbeat and it is contagious! I looked forward to seeing and interacting with them and they with me! My dad had Alzheimer's and I assisted in his care and managed his medical care until his death. I was his voice when he no longer had one. Over the years I have also helped take care of grandparents and other family members. This gave me the experience and ignited the fire and passion I have for elder care, I am their biggest "cheerleader" and best friend but also know how to encourage and be firm when it is tied directly to their medical well being!
I became a caregiver because I love to help people. I love to see others smile and go beyond my job duty to see that they are happy and satisfied. I'm now a Medical assistant and would like to go back for nursing. I hope one-day to have my own home health care. I'm kinda quite at first, but respectful and on time because I don't like to be late. Honest, caring and dependable.

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 am a good listener. I try to make my patients feel at ease and feel encouraged to obtain as much independence as they still have. Enjoy listening and sharing each others events of our lives. I love caring for the elderly and disabled but most importantly want them to feel good about themselves. Just want them to know they matter still.
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.

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.
