My passion is working with the elderly. I am honored by the families that put their trust in me to care for their loved one who may be on the final path of their life requiring Home Hospice care. or is at that point in their lives where assistance is needed in order to continue staying in their home, being as independent as possable, staying safe. My commitment for each and every person is to provide them with companionship, assistance with physical needs and whatever else they need, whether it's writing a letter for them, or baking their favorite cookies, straightening out closet shelves or holding their hand, reading a book to them or just sitting quietly with them. I believe it is ao important to pocess tthe traits that are important in caregiving which are flexibility, willingness to sit still when you notice its what the person you are caring for needs. Paying attention is very important. A caregiver cannot just "be there" I keep logs in order to ensure the Doctor and nurses and family are notified of ANY changes such as skin color, urine intake/out take, bathroom habits, signs of weakness, facial changes, depression/mood changes. If bedridden, log needs to include turning times, any skin breakdown issues, A good caregiver needs to go outside the box, be willing to do what otherwise might be uncomfortable, be drama free. Assisting the family is one of the things that helps them know who I am and relieves some of the stress from their lives. By helping doing even the smallest of details, yardwork, cleaning a garage etc. I promise you that I will make the same commitment to respect, never diminish their dignity and do all I can to provide the stability, comfort your loved one deservesI I did not become a Caregiver to change the dynamics of lives. but to be there to make them feel safe, healty and secure. Compassion goes a long long way.
People say I am reliable and confident caregiver. That I do now what I do and is very educated. I wanted to become a caregiver for this is my passion. I am a Registered Nurse in the Philippines but I cannot work here without a license but all I want to do is help and take care of the sick and elderly. One of my personal achievement in my life is that my previouse client told me that I am on top of everything thus it's making her life and her family's life a lot easier.
I love being a caregiver, because helping people especially elderly is a very rewarding job, someone need to help elderly and that's me, should help them .. Not everyone likes to be s caregiver but for me it's a very rewarding job. I feel good if I can make an elderly patient smile again and especially if they can get back in walking again . I was very proud of myself when a dementia patient of mine was back to her normal situation ( not exactly normal) but giving the medications on time and feeding or reminding her or him that it's time to eat will help a lot in getting better. Time management for the daily activities of the patient will help a lot in getting better for the patient well being . I considered myself as one of the best caregiver at my job now, and will continue to give my good care to the elderly until I retire .
1. I've always been a caregiver. I'm the eldest of 3 sisters and have always taken care of them and anyone else that needs health care. 2. I enjoy making someone's life a little easier. I also enjoy the comradery. I put myself in their shoes and hope I get a caregiver like myself when needed. 3. I taught a patient that is a quad how to use the remote control. 4. I am a highly motivated Registered Medical Assistant with good morals and outstanding care giving skills. I'm also very assertive when need be, considering some patients can be difficult.

I am an exemplary caregiver that is very dependable, friendly, and detail-oriented. I like to connect with people and educate them on preventative care as well as activities of daily living. Since I was in high school I've always worked in the healthcare field. I plan to move up in the healthcare profession and become a Nurse Practitioner. I am an Alumnus of the University of Nevada Reno with a Bachelors Degree in Biology and a minor in Communications. I have a lot of experience working with a variety of patients starting from when I volunteered at a local hospital while I was in high school. Upon graduating high school I became a certified nursing assistant in order to broaden my experience with patient care. After working as a CNA at Renown, I started working for St. Mary's Regional Medical Center as a Patient Care Tech. I feel confident in my ability to perform any tasks given to me and would love the opportunity to prove that ability to you. Aside from the skills and qualifications I described above, there are many others on my resume that I think would make me a great fit. I would greatly appreciate the privilege of talking them over with you in more detail. I hope to receive a follow up call or email. In the meantime, thank you for all the time and effort you take in reviewing me as a candidate to work for you!
I am a very loving and caring person. I am able to put most people at ease. I can listen and respond appropriately. What attracted me to caregiving was the desire to give quality care in a way that I would want for myself. I enjoy the smiles on their faces when they realize I genuinely care. I am able to give end of life care to not only the patient but their family.
