I have been a pastor's wife for 40 years and I love people. I have served people young and old in various capacities over the years, but for the last 10 years I have found great joy in serving the elderly. I have experience providing companionship, cooking meals, providing transportation, running errands, administering meds, staying overnight, and making my clients' quality of living the best I can. I have numerous happy clients/references and I have never been asked to leave any of my sitting positions. I have also served as a volunteer hospital chaplain and have been trained and received certification from the Southern Baptist Association "Hands on Ministry". I look forward to serving more clients as I relocate to the DFW area to be close to my children and grandchildren.

At the age of sixteen I helped a family friend looking after there mother whom had alzheimer's. During that time I found what I was compassionate about and what I wanted to do for a living. I love being a caregiver I love help other's in need. To able to care for someone in need and I know they are getting the best care in my hands makes my day to see a smile on my patients face's of a sigh of thanks. Going back to school and get my Associate Degree. I am a 33 year old woman I have been a caregiver for 17 years now this is my true passion I've walked away from this duty but my heart has brought me back the way i looked at it's not about when we get old at any giving time something can happen to you and if you ever have to depend on someone to care for you don't you want some to care for you with compassion patients understand open mind and a up lifting spirit. All my life all I have ever done is care for other with or with pay i do it because that's the person i am I just that kind of girl...
What makes me a great caregiver is because I love to share my love to other. Before I became a Nursing Assistant I was a caregiver for 6 years. I was a little girl helping my grandmother every weekend. I would prepare here meals feed her, bath her and everything. She would talk me through everything I needed to do. Then I really enjoyed taking care of her I went until the real world and started doing it on my own. I feel in love with it after that and I been loving it every since. What I like about being a caregiving. Is that I can be a blessing to someone by putting a smile on there face. Making someone feel safe are just giving them some on my time. Some patient don't even have family that want even go check on them. It makes my day when I can bless someone by perparing a meal are giving a warm bath. I have a really loving heart I treat my patients like my family because in my eyes they are like apart of my family. I love to pray with my patients I take them home in my prayers. My personal achievement im proud of is becoming a loving, caring and honest person....

What makes me a great caregiver it's because I care about the person that I am giving care to an glad that I can be there for them when no one else can. I became a caregiver because as I was growing up I had to care for my great grandma when I was in high school. After I got out of School while my grandma went to work an I told her I wanted to help take care of people when I grow. I've learned a lot since I've been a caregiver know as DSW now
