I am currently a stay at home mom to High school students with Special Needs. I am looking forward to spending time with clients of all ages and stages of life! I have a Nursing license that is inactive- but it is this nursing degree/passion for people that has given me the desire to care take and love on others- deeply. I am half glass full type person who loves to help others in their journey through life! I love to sit and chat and play games/take walks in the fresh air and enjoy getting to know others etc. as we all journey together through this walk we call life! I look forward to helping in any ways I can.
Hi there, I have been working in the field since 2011. I have worked with clients who are medically fragile, development disabilities, dementia, and also children and adults with behavioral disabilities. I have worked in homes, group homes, isl, independent living facilities and also in a school setting.
Highly Motivated, hard worker, self-starter Medical Assistant with management and clinical skills looking to advance my skills and bring value to a family or in a clinic or laboratory , adept to taking vital signs,vein-puncture, urinalysis and giving injections, providing passionate inhome care for over 10 years. I have experience with PEG tubes, G tubes, and as well trachs. Im am a fast learning and VERY confident in my services provided in home or clinic settings
I am a happy and funny person,upbeat,like to sing. I am sensitive and listen well. I can usually come up with good ideas on making something easier to do or more efficient. I'm gentle. What attracted me to home care was all my family and friends telling me how good I would be at it. So tried it with a part time help with a lady with dementia/alzheimer's, her daughter saw how great I was with her mother and hired me full time. From there I learned so much.She would get confused sometimes angry even sad, we worked together to figure it out, her and I . That's where compassion and patience comes in. I Started taking care of a child w/cerebral palsy part time as well. What I enjoy about being a caregiver is knowing I'm helping someone's life to be a little easier,keeping them comfortable and hopefully a little laughter and a smile is really great. Knowing I have made a difference means a great deal. I have had many great achievements in this line of work. One of them was when a client was starting to have a stroke, I caught it quickly and my training from several weeks back with the Red Cross on Abuse and Neglect, First Aid and CPR came rushing back and I just went into action. Once the ambulance was there and one of the other employees told them all I did, They said I did everything right! I did a good job! Wow,that felt great and was thankful I somehow remembered all I had learned. I didn't even realize what I had done till I heard them saying it, but most of all, she(my client) was ok. I have worked with 6-7 different senior's and 3 young adults within last ten years. I have gone through drug screening and willing to again for any client your cost. That sums up some of me,any questions let me know.
What makes me a great caregiver to me are I will go above and beyond for my residents a are whomever I work for. I am a perfectionist down to the last detail. What 1st attracted me to being a caregiver was my Grandmother she was an LPN up until her 2nd Surgery and was very proud of beinging an LPN. What solidified my beinging a caregiver are a CNA was my oldest son which put me in the role early on of becoming a caregiver He was had to have several surgeries do to a rare Gastrointestinal situation which caused him to be on An IV at all times, a feeding tube and a colostomy Bag for while but not anymore he is 16 now and will be celebrating 17 years of life in 6 month with none of the above. What I enjoy most about being a caregiver is simply just the pure love of being able to help someone out period. Being able to see my 1st patient my oldest son see 16 and knowing it was partly my aiding in his care that got him to this milestone in his life is my personal achievement.
My name is Courtney Adams. I am a mother of 2 and a wonderful aid. I am a only child and my generation of family is a lot older. Growing up most of them opt to pass away at home leaving my grandmother, my mother and myself to care and comfort them. Then I knew that I was born to be a caregiver and a nurtured nurtueror. I have been a paid at a couple of hospitals and various long term care, rehab, hospice and assisted living facilites. My greatest accomplishment as a aid is seeing the faces of patients and family when I have made a patient feel better, or brought a patients pulse back. As a aid I am determined to make patients feel as good comfortable and loved as possible.
I have been a caregiver for 15+ years fresh out of high school. I became a cargiver because my grandmother had took ill and developed dementia. My family and I took alot of time to care for her in the comfort of her own home until she departed in 2009. I knew that i wanted to be a caregiver because caring for people is my life I enjoy being able to put others and meet their needs before my own. Being a caregiver was not always easy and through out the years I have learned to be compassionate, caring, loving and also very giving. And through out the years I have further my education and I have more than one certification that I can provide care for.
Am a very compassionate person good listener even when i was a child there was something that drove me to Elder people and the sick it didn't matter rather old or young. My heart was there i do whatever i could to help. I lose my grandma to cancer. I was very young i remember standing by her bed when i was a child watching over her running out to catch my school bus with tears in my eyes peoples like doing different thing. It my calling from the lord to help i love doing. Being a care giver ever client i ever had was proud of me so i must be doing something good. It give me joy to be able to help put a smile on some one face. That give me joy to make someone smile it really. Make my day most of all cna is not just a job to me it's a compassionate nurse Assistants who love doing her job it give her joy. That supasses understanding. That the best way i can explain it love everybody can't be a caregiver i believe you have to be appointed my God. Sorry but that the way i feel in my heart
I'm a very loving caring, compassionate friendly, outgoing, hard working and quick learner. I've been doing care giving basically my whole life. I was raised with my morther an grandparents so it all came very naturally. From dealing with my grandmom epilepsy are my Papa Parkison in dementia I learned very quick what to do and what not at very young age. My motto is you treat others the way you won't to be treated. What I enjoy most about care giving is Everything from understanding them, the smiles the talks there nothing I don't like about it. I believe my heart makes me a good care giver..
I bring empathy and compassion. Working with people in a home care setting, it is essential that a I feel the desire to want to help. By showing both empathy and compassion I will let the person know they are cared for and that I want to do what I can to help them. I also have patience. When you work with someone who needs home care it is important that you are patient and understanding. It helps to sometimes put yourself in the other person's shoes and see what it might be like to ask people for help. I am reliable. A great caregiver is someone that can be counted on to be there. Those needing home care services need a reliable and dependable caregiver. I am trustworthy. Most people who need home care services are in a vulnerable position. They are inviting someone into their home to be near their valuables. A good caregiver is someone who is trustworthy in this regard, as well as in being trusted to keep the client's information confidential. Flexible. As with most things in life, home care needs may change and unexpected events can happen. A good caregiver will be prepared to go with the flow, being flexible, so that they continue to provide good home care, even if a rigid schedule isn't being followed.
I am a great caregiver because I have a love for helping people. My happiness is in infectious and I like seeing people smile. I'm attracted to being a caregiver because when I am able to help someone else it makes me feel good. People always need someone to help them at some point in their life, and I really enjoy knowing that I am able there to help. A personal achievement that I have made is raising two beautiful children as a single mother and they are also helpers themselves.
