About Shachi

I feel "Care" is the most lightly taken word. "To care" doesn't just mean to supervise someone physically, it goes beyond that and it takes a very emotional yet strong person to take care of someone else who doesn't just need a shoulder but also a little smile, and loads of fun. That's how I took care of a couple of people, my family and non-family (who eventually became a part of my life). I care about people the way I would expect others to care for me and that makes me a better caregiver. I never took it as a profession until I came to the US and accidentally did a couple of assignments, which made me realize that I am good at it. I am compassionate, have a pleasing personality, an inquisitive mind, a curious soul and blessed with an untiring smiling face. I can be a chatterbox or NOT (depending on the person's mood), can talk on different topics, a very good listener (love listening to the stories and experiences), creatively driven, love cooking (my previous clients can vouch for it :)), a coffee drinker and love weight lifting. I am a learner and never leave any chance to pick up something from others' experiences. I am a content/ digital marketer by profession, a wanderer, a nurturer and learner by nature. In short, I truly care about people and capable of connecting with them at different emotional levels. Last but not least, I come with great recommendations and I am very proud of it :)

Self
This was a personal experience. My mother-in-law was a cancer patient, and I took care of her for one whole year. This wasn't a smooth experience, and since it was family, I know how difficult it could be for the family members. Taking care of your loved ones takes a toll on your personal and professional life. You get drained mentally and physically and yet care a lot about the person who is so close to your heart. I have been through this and with my first-hand experience I know I am capable of handling someone who needs care, support, love, affection or just someone sitting nearby listening to the incredible life stories. Most of my experience is with my family members. I even took care of my 96-year old grandfather. He was bed-ridden and a very stubborn man but I loved him to the core and took care of him. I even worked as a volunteer at Brookdale Hospice, where I used to go and meet the seniors and try to make their stay a little soothing. I don't have any professional certification yet then why should you hire me? Because I know "caring" has a broad meaning and it can come from a person who has a heart and conviction to do it. It's NOT an easy task but it sure is REWARDING.

I am a great care giviver because I genuinely love helping other people and enjoying putting a smile on their face. I provide care as if they were my own mother or father. I enjoy be able to make someone laugh and smile. I enjoy making a person believe in themself and encouraging them to do what they can for themselves so they don't lose their abilities. I enjoy showing families that there is still good old fashion people in the world with hard work ethic and caring pure hearts . When I moved to Arizona I started in the kitchen at a nursing home as a dishwasher, I worked my way up to food service directors assistant and then to the nursing side as a CNA. From there I expanded my knowledge by accepting job offers in wound tech, RNA (restorative nursing assistant) and staffing coordinator . These experiences have helped me expand my knowledge and being able to provide the best possible care.
