I am a great care giver because I'm patient, kind, nurturing and I like to be precise.I understand the limited abilities the patients have and so I show them that I am completely there to help in every kind of way.I'm a good listener and use my memory to remember just how the patient likes and goes about things the way that they normally do.I like to promote positive habits and take seriously what needs to be done for them. My current job that I'm working at is called Behavior Matters.Monday through Friday I have the opportunity of working with children who have autism.I also currently have a caregiving position that I partake in every Saturday.I visit a senior that is 87 and unfortunately has dementia.I am gaining experience in helping in the restroom.Each Saturday I get the opportunity to keep him company, play games with him to keep his mind active,along with small physical activity to gain more strength in his legs and upper body as well. I enjoy being able to help with small self-care needs(ex. Combing his hair and cleaning/cutting his fingernails). We also listen to the Bible frequently and I prepare dinner for him too.What I like most about care giving is that I get to be that one person they can depend on and through that they show me their trust. I love making them laugh even if it's only for a second! Being a care giver for me is very full-filling because I love helping people.I am 24 years old and through out the years I have learned that keeping a positive attitude can take you further than anything else. My life is devoted to Jesus and living for Him because of what He did for me. With Him being the center of my life He's helped me see what's truely important.I would love to be a helper to you and your loved ones.Please let me know if you think I'd make a good fit to your family.(: Thank you
