About Kassi

My personality is very bubbly. Also very stubborn and I aim to reach my goals. I've been known to make sure to fully hydrate someone or finish their food. Unlike a lot of the people I work with I truthfully do care about my residents. To be honest I never wanted to be a caregiver when I started at my work I started as a dietary aide in the kitchen. Then I wasn't making enough money so I tried caregiving out, and I can honestly say I don't imagine myself doing anything else now. I have gotten in countless arguments with other care staff members for not treating the residents how they deserve to be treated. I've argued with my bosses I've argued with a lot of people due to the lack of care I've seen my residents get. It's incredibly cliche but helping people really does make a difference to me. I've been bit, slapped, punched, kicked, pushed, etc. I've seen it all and I've experienced it all and I cannot say that I've gotten angry or upset with my residents at all. I don't believe that I shouldn't get attached to someone at an older age because they are going to die soon. I believe that those are the years in somebody's life that should count and should matter. I'm extremely grateful for having been honored enough to experience Alzheimer's/dementia because it has given me a whole different type of respect for somebody at that age. When I'm at work there's nothing that makes me happier than to see someone whose so confused or so upset become happy by something I say or do. It has made me into a strong woman and it has helped me just become better in a lot of different aspects.

I'm a caregiver at an Alzheimer's facility in Redlands California. I've been doing it for two years. I help my residents with what they are incapable of performing for themselves. I help them brush their hair, teeth, clean their face nails body parts. I change their depends, I give them showers. I put lotion on them. I've even helped with giving my residents their medications when they are not cooperating with the other employees. I perform these tasks for my residents even when they are being combative and I do it very calmly. I've become very compassionate about what I do.

As women I believe we are born to nurture and have great care for others because we are preparing ourselves to be mother's. I see the elderly as people who've lived their life to their full potential and now they have the luxury of someone being their right hand. I cook, clean, chauffeur, garden, etc. I engage my clients to do physical and mental activities with me. Assisting with medication and other necessities I take care of. I enjoy listening to stories and testimonies of others. It brings a smile to my face when I learn new things and see life in a different perspective.
