I became interested in caregiving when I first worked in a nursing home doing housekeeping. I saw how nurses neglected the residents and hated it! I became more interested when I was given the opportunity to care for a man who couldn't be mobile due to robbers beating him up.. I made his meals, did his laundry, houeswork, and fed his dog. I also gave him piece of mind enough to sleep. For the first time in months, he slept a full twelve hours in bed (he'd been sleeping in a chair). These simple things mean a lot to someone who can't do them anymore. I'm dependable, trustworthy, patient and, also a mom which means, taking care of others comes naturally..
Hi, My Name is Joselyn, You can call me Jossy if you like, I love taking care of people I'm very friendly, kind, outgoing, trustworthy, patient, hard worker and caring, I'm always with a big smile in my face, well that's what everyone who knows me says :), I'm very positive and if you have dogs I'm very good with them, I love dogs, I also enjoy reading fantasy and horror books. once you decide to hire me I will help you with everything you need and I will take good care of you. when I'm taking care of you or your loved ones I think about my parents I will like someone like me to be there for then when I can't. have a wonderful day we will meet soon!!!!

I have a somewhat goofy personality, I like to joke around and sometimes be silly, but I'm very good with the elderly. I'm very kind and understanding about them not being able to do things on their own or that they may take a little longer. I don't rush them. And they tend to appreciate that. I decided to be a CNA in 2002 because I was tired of working as a waitress and needed a better paying job to support my children, but I also enjoy being around elderly people and talking to them, learning about their lives, what they did for a living, their families and I LOVE looking at their old pictures and helping them walk down memory lane. I think an achievement I'm proud of is paying 50,000 dollars cash for our house. My husband got a settlement and that's what we did with it. My PERSONAL achievement that I'm proud of is of course my children but also being able to survive the death of my 5 year old daughter and to be able to tell parents how important it is to keep medications locked up. There's a lot of things I'm proud of in my life, way too many to list here.
I have been a caregiver for over 10 years and have found it to be the most rewarding and enjoyable position I've held. I very much enjoy connecting one on one with people and I get a great sense of happiness knowing that I am directly helping a person who needs my help. I have been described as extremely patient and calm, and I find that those traits greatly help my ability to be a good caregiver. When people begin to age and/or their health deteriorates, life generally moves at a slower pace for them. Their ability to move quickly and to think quickly declines and it is very important for caregivers to be patient with them. That is something that comes naturally for me. I have learned how to balance the tasks of offering the person my physical help, and my companionship. I recognize that companionship is a very important part of this job! As far as the physical help I offer to my clients (cleaning, meal prep, toileting, grocery shopping, etc...) I am not one to sit idle. There is always something to be done around a home and, rather than watch tv (unless that's what the client wants me to do now and then!) or play on my cell phone, I will happily do them. Growing up with a mother who always cooked meals from scratch, I learned a great deal about cooking. I love to cook and bake, and am always up for making good, healthy meals from scratch. Whether I'm assisting my clients while they work in the kitchen, or doing the bulk of the cooking myself, I am great in the kitchen and love to provide great food for my clients. I can offer very satisfied reference, whether they come from the families of past clients or from fellow caregivers I've worked beside in the past. I am flexible schedule-wise and am used to the flexibility that is necessary to work with a rotating team of caregivers.
I am a very passionate, dedicated, and committed to delivering selfless, purpose-driven service. I believe in servant leadership and making sound decisions in the absence of direction. I want family members to feel like I am an extension of their family, someone they can rely on when most necessary. I was attracted to caregiving by the reward that comes from helping others. Seeing people that were in need for care, when family members simply don't have time, money, or emotional longevity that is required in long-term assisted living and care. I am very proud of raising my two teenage daughters as a single mother, while working multiple jobs. It was very difficult, but highly rewarding seeing them grow, and exhibiting the same work ethic and love I try to possess.
My first priority and goal as a caregiver is to build a rapport with the individual that Im working with. I strive to support and assist them in any way i can so that they can be as independent as they possibly can . I have the experience and capabilities to remain calm and make quick decisions in emergency type situations that sometimes involve CPR and first aid. Although my certifications are not up to date I have had CPR and first aid training/certification classes at least 5 times in the past 10 years when I worked for a former employer.
I am a very caring person and always have a smile, my expertise are in making the person that I am caring for comfortable and making sure that they know that I'm there for them and they are my priority. The reason I became a caregiver was because of my grandfather 20 years ago he had a stroke and he for a long time felt like he was a bother for everyone, he told me before he passed to care for everyone just like I cared for him because I never made him feel like he was a bother and that takes a very special someone to do that. From that day forward I always made sure the person I care for is my 100% focus . My personal achievement that I'm very proud of is caring for others when their family can't at that moment.

I offer services of care giving , awesome meal preparation, light house keeping duties, integrity, companionship, dependability, ( with a variety of shift changes if needed ) and a heart to comfort and please you while in my care. My skilled servicing rate is 14.00 per hour ( short or long ). I would appreciate the opportunity of caring for you or your loved one. Respectfully; Aunita
I am a very positive person, I love helping others and taking care of anyone and everyone. I am a mother of 6 beautiful children and I have 2 boys that have passed away. So taking care of others to my full potential and even beyond warms my heart. I don't believe I decided to become a caregiver, I believe I was born to help others... it was a gift given to me. What I Love most about being a caregiver is the bond and trust you develop with each other. One of my personal achievements I am highly proud of is being a wonderful mother and wife and still be able to continue my education and be a positive role model in their lives... never giving up, no matter how hard life gets.
I've been a direct support proffesional for about a year and a half now, I currently work with adults with diasbilities in a workshop setting. I am looking for an opportunity to help families and/or individuals with their daily needs in the evenings and on the weekends; whether that be companionship, help with hygiene, or simply a helping hand.
I believe I am very genuine and caring. I tend to make sure everyone is okay before myself. I love being a caregiver because it isn't VERY rewarding not only for me, but to whomever I provide care for. I love making a difference in somebody's life. Whether it's a small difference or a huge difference, i love helping. I am very proud to say that I earned my CNA license at age 16, and have been working in this field ever since.
I have been in healthcare industry for 8 years now. I love my career its more of an passion for me. I give my care as I would want it for myself or my loved one. The thing I love about care giving is the relationships I build with my clients. I learn so much and they come from different places around the world and have awesome stories. All my clients love me and thats all the achievement I need. Its my passion.
