Caregiving is something I don't really consider work. Yes it pays my bills but it's much more than just a job. It's a chance to connect with and help someone that is no longer able to do certain things themselves. My favorite part of caregiving is being able to help make life easier for elders while also creating new friendships.

Hi I would say that I am a great caregiver I have been doing this for over eight years now. I am compassionate and caring observant and pay attention to detail. I care about the well-being of my patient and their interest. I can usually catch a lot of things that are going on before the patient or the family does a lot of times from the experience that I've had over the years of handling and dealing with the elderly. I actually just fell into caregiving I started taking care of my husband's grandfather which actually he was very close to and considered him a father figure and that's how it all started for me. And from there every patient that I've ever had her taken care of I've usually taken care of them until the end because I care for anybody I take care of like they're my own family. What I most enjoy about being a caregiver is knowing that I'm helping a human being make their life a little easier. Because as we all know when you get older you lose your Independence and that's harder on you so I'm here to help them and make them feel secure and not to feel like they're a burden. I would have to say one of the most proudest moments of my personal achievements is the fact that I know that every person that I've ever taken care of I know that they felt love from me and knew that I would be there for them and they wouldn't be alone if they needed it and I take pride and the care that I give to individuals. And my duties and responsibilities are always done and taken care of I don't lack on them either.
I am a male who is currently going to school to become a nurse. I've have worked with people with mental and physical disabilities for a year now at an organization in which we house about 100 clients. I am familiar with giving out medicine especially control substance and doing showers. I love what I do and I'll always enforce good hygiene and encourage clients to stay active.
I am posting this profile to share our wonderful caregiver with another family. My father no longer needs full time care and he doesn't want to lose her to a full time position. Lexi is wonderful. She is attentive to my dad's needs. Experienced with proper lifting, exercise routines, wound care, showering, helps with housework - takes dictation for my dad who has lists of business tasks he likes to keep track of - works with his physical therapists to learn new exercise programs and is mindful of watching for things that indicate he needs additional medical attention. She is on time -- always happy and keeps my dad's spirits up. She is looking for afternoons at least five days a week. She needs to pick up her son from childcare before they close. She is open to overnights on weekends. Her rate is negotiable based on the type of services requested. She had done wound vacs, tub feedings, blood draws, vitals and other specialized care. She is a delight.
I have taken care of my father with his ADLs, as well as others in need. I am caring and hardworking. I have always taken care of people since I was little and acting like my father's nurse when he broke his arm. Being a caregiver is a rewarding job for myself, it helps me with my anxiety and I love taking care of others. I go over and beyond the call of duty at times when needed. Being a caregiver gives me a sense of accomplishment, because I know I am helping those that need it.
I love taking care of others, I believe you do on to others as you want done to you. I love knowing that the patient is getting the best care possible because I give 100 %. I'm proud that I have learned many new things in this last 16years of being a cna. I'm very dedicated to my patients and clients, I'm outgoing and willing to learn new things.

My passion for becoming a caregiver started when I was a very young child. My mother would take me and my brother to visit my grandparents in nursing homes. I saw how well cared for people can taken care of. But it really started to sink in that I could do this when I was 17 my cousin was dying of stage 4 breast cancer. I helped her for 8 months every day. Taking her to doctor visits, reminding her to take her meds, making meals for her and bathing/dressing her. While in this time she showed me that I had compassion and a heart for a job like this. A lot of people can say that care giving is easy, but if they dont have a strong stomach for certain things and a heart of gold not many can call this a career. I'm a full believer that when a person is in need to medical help and able to be at home it is 100% better for that individual. Its their surroundings, their home, their comfort. And when you add a supportive family it makes everything a whole lot better too. I also believe that our elderly deserve the very best care that they can get. After all a lot have had families of their own, raised their childern,worked for years, and now that they are older they deserve the very best care that there is out there.
