Hi, my name is Hillary Hetrick. I have been in the Healthcare field since 2004. I was a certified nurse assistant for six years, and a caregiver for five years. I have experience with taking care of the elderly, disabled people, and people with mental health disorders. I also am a pet-friendly person who doesn't mind helping with a dog or cat. I love cooking your favorite meals, cleaning and organizing, gardening, fulfilling your shopping needs, providing transportation to doctor appointments or recreational activities, or just being there as a friend.
People who know me describe me as a "little ray of sunshine". People I have cared for respond well to my caring and personable personality. Clients' family and friends have often agreed that their loved ones are happier, healthier, and have a more positive outlook on life when I become their caregiver. I would say that I have inherited my mother's and my grandmother's unique personalities of calmness, patience, compassion, love and respect for the dignity of an individual. I was raised by 4 great people-my Mom& Dad, my Grandma& Grandpa- who have handed-down these good traits to me that makes me a great caregiver.
I believe that I have a high EQ -emotional quotient and at the same time I have a superior IQ and I have the skill set, self-confidence, education and great communication skills to excellently do my job as a caregiver.
My achievements- I have taken care of 28 mentally challenged elderly people in a licensed facility in Morgan Hill for 7 years. When I moved down to S. CA, I took care of 3 elderly patients (79 yo lady with stroke, 72 yo lady with cervical cancer and a 101 yo vet of WW2 of the US Air Force)
I believe that my great achievements are: Modesty aside, I believe that I could be a Hall of Famer in The Holy Eyes of The Almighty God Above for giving special care for the special people I mentioned above. I am a hard and a smart worker. I am an honest, patient, calm, responsible, respectful and knowledgeable worker. I am a motivator, a peacemaker. I consider my patients as my family. I work from my heart. To be liked and loved by my patients and their families, and to serve them with all my heart are my greatest achievements!
