Hi my name is clarissa Adams I'm a single mother of one and been caregiving for 10 years now. I chose this career because enjoy creating bonds with clients and their family and this is also a job that has to be done. I used to work in a nursing home and did not like the way the clients were being treated and I felt like no matter how much I report anything even though I will if I see something wrong its up to the caregivers to make sure that they show compassion and be considerate of the clients and do their job properly. I understand that sometimes the family just cant be there for their loved one and it completely doesn't mean they don't love them that's where I come in I have no issue with working over I'm very reliable I often sacrifice my holidays for clients but I consider them family as well. Most of all I would love to get to know you the caretakers of my future clients. I'm very polite and have plenty of experience in hospice care and basic needs care. I would love for you to get to know me better in person if you choose me. Thank you for taking the time to consider me God Bless.
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.
I became a caregiver about 4 years ago I absolutely enjoy working with the elderly and love being there for them physically mentally and emotionally I have a very loving vibe and also very caring I'm very outgoing and easy going I love to talk with the elderly people and see how there life was growing up and just being there for someone for them to talk to so they won't feel alone. Although every day can be different and challenging in many ways I learned how to cope with certain things as I've grown over the years in the healthcare field. I'm very friendly and someone you can trust to get the job done the right way to take care of your loved one.

I enjoy being a caregiver and took care of my great grandma for a few months in 2005 beforw she passed away. I knew then that this is what i wanted to do. I love helping people and will do what i can to make sure they are taken care of and are happy.
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.
Hi there! I am a 32 year old mother of 2. I live in Bethany with my 10 year old daughter and 8 year old son. I have always loved caring for others, no matter their age or needs. I find giving yourself to someone else in your profession is incredibly rewarding and fulfilling! I especially have a tender spot for the elderly. As a girl I volunteered in nursing homes my mama was employed by. She's a nurse of 18 years and opened the door to this world for me. I immediately fell in love with providing care and knew this was my calling in life. I am CPR certified, and have performed CPR successfully once after a patient suffered a heart attack. I am also certified in home care, Alzheimer's Disease, communicable disease, bathing/grooming, and transferring. I am able to perform glucose checks, manage oxygen use, take blood pressures, and perform range of motion. I am trained in creating and carrying out care plans as well as shift charting. My most recent patient has passed away, leaving me to find someone to devote myself to. I was with him for approximately 7 years, and the loss has been difficult. After taking some time to grieve, I am now ready to move forward and continue the line of work I am so passionate about. I am a very compassionate, caring woman. ...quick to smile and love to laugh. I am incredibly detail oriented and very reliable. I understand the importance of patience and building a foundation of trust, while giving consideration to each individual's needs and wants. It's never only about what someone needs. What a person wants is just as important, and if at all possible to safely give them that, I feel the effort should be made. My goal is to provide the medical care my patient needs, while also being a companion and allowing them to remain in their home where they feel safe and secure in their surroundings.
I specialize according to my academic and professional background with handling individuals that suffer from either a mental/physical illness/disability more specifically, psychology related field. I have experience both professional and personal helping those that may be in need of services related to caregiving. I am very hardworking, compassionate and a real team player when it comes to giving and treating others how I would like to be treated if I was in their place. I worked in a alzethmeizers unit as a dietary aide and I was very blown away with the individuals I was servicing, due to the huge compassion behind mental illness and offering services to those that are in need. What I enjoy the most about caregiving is conversation, there is a great deal of knowledge to be learned from our older population and the fat that there's a job that pairs the two together, ultimately completes my goals of wanting to get back into working as a caregiver.
I was around residents during my whole shift. I am not certified but I helped out with the residents more than I was supposed to. CNAs ended up asking me for help. I am experienced in lifting residents, bathing residents, feeding residents, helping with medication, etc. Every nursing home I have worked at, I was never supposed to tend the residents needs because that was not my department, but I did anyways. They are people and that is how they should be treated. I have seen many CNAs treat residents as if they do not matter. They yell at them and treat them terribly. That is wrong and I wish to never see it again. I would like to make a difference.
