I became a Caregiver in 1998 because i enjoy helping others. I enjoy talking to and listening to the awesome stories that clients tell about their life. You began to get to know one another and build a bond. I am currently CPR and First Aid Certified. I have over 20+ years as a CNA.I am currently in school to finish my degree in Education. I hope that in the future, i will finish my goals and become what i always wanted to be. An Educator
I genuinely care about others, no matter the age. Outside of my wishes of being a medical assistant, I wanted to be a caregiver because I would have one-on-one time with the person. This desire of mine grew as I started working for Clark Lindsey. As a waitress, I get to know the residents to an extent. The reason I joined Synergy (home health care), was to be a companion to residents that may not have that or any type of care as they used to. Knowing that they don't get to see their loved ones as much as they want to, I feel even closer to them because I feel like I can be that person for them-someone who is close to them, cares for them, provides safety, and to really listen and have interest in them. For the client that I currently have as well as others in the past, I learn a lot of life experiences from them and I love to see their eyes light up when they tell me parts of their past as if they are reliving it again and again. Lastly, my personal achievements that I'm proud of happens at Clark Lindsey and with a client I used to have. At Clark Lindsey, when residents would come up to me (when I'm working, or just visiting) telling me that they always enjoy seeing me, always makes my day. Also, recently with a client, I aided in the recovery of one walking again. Even though, I don't see him anymore, I'm happy that he is with his wife and truly happy.
My personality traits that makes me a great caregiver are having (Patience), (compassion), (attentiveness), (dependability), & trustworthiness! What attracted me to being a caregiver was caring for my disabled sister before she passed away. I enjoy making my clients happy and all around making there day! Cleaning for them and just making sure they have no worries! A personal achievement I am proud of was providing exceptional palliative care to elderly patients, provided them with a happy and comfortable life.

Over 6 years of caregiving experience. I really got into homecare after my son was in an accident. While being trained to care for him I decided this was something that I really enjoyed it doing. I spent a lot of my time with great-grandmother in the south and by her being elderly; I learned a lot from her and also assisted her in the kitchen where I took up a love for cooking. I love caring for people and being a companion when needed; making a client as comfortable as possible and providing grooming can really make a difference in how one is able to cope with their day. I don't mind going the extra to make a person feel special, this is just they way that I was raised.
People always need to be treated with dignity and respect but particularly so when they are ill or injured. I am an excellent listener and communicator as these are skills necessary to help someone who needs care to be trusting of my abilities. My CPR and first aid certifications expired in Aug. but I would be more than willing to renew these if offered a position. I have been a caregiver previously and performed Phys Therapy exercises, bathing, dressing, cooking, transportation to social events and doctors and hospital testing appointments, cleaning and many other necessities.
In 2003 my mother had to stroke and at that point I dropped everything to care for her In gave her 7 years She was also told she had cancer. I guess friends and family that where I'll or need help with medical problems called me saying I was good at what I did. So after hearing so many say it I figured it was my way.I enjoy seeing the faces of the people I care for and making them happy.Giving a millionaire his last wishes.

Because I am a very compassionate person, patient and fine seniors and elderly people very interesting to spin time with, the thaught of being able to help someone that truly appreciate the help we give. Being able to say I've spent 30s years taking care of older people and have enjoyed every bit of it. Whatever job I held in taking care of seniors and elderly persons I committed myself and gave a 100% to my job.
