Caregiving is a profession I truly Love and have a passion for. It takes a special person to be able to do the tasks needed and be there the way the clients need. I will be starting school for my LVN no later than this Fall. After I have aquired my LVN I will become a in home nurse. While working I will finish school to become an RN. Where I can advance in my career to become a case manager for home health. Eventually I would like to work with Hospice. What inspired me to do this was my mom. She died 3 years ago, but through out the last few years of her life I saw countless caregivers and nurses come in and out. The compassion they all had was that to be admired and appreciated. They tended to my mom like she was their own mother and treated our family as theirs. I had worked with home health prior to my mom needing assistance, and always found a joy in visiting all my clients. One of my favorite experiences with a client was being able to be a personal coach to recovery after she had a stroke. When i first arrived into the home she could not feed herself, sit down on the toilet on her own, or wheel her own wheelchair. With motivation, hard work on her part, perseverance, and 10 hour days, she could use a spoon and a fork on her own, she was able to sit in privacy to use the restroom, and she would move her wheel chair on any surface. It truly makes my heart happy when I can assist in the progress to allow a person a little freedom to their normal life, or at the very least
