Taking care of the elderly is like taking care of my own parents. I love my parents very much because they took really well of me when I was still young. The Golden Rule has been my guiding principle in dealing with people that is " Do unto others what do you want others do unto you." One of the virtues I have learned is patience. The elderly would not need someone to take care of them if they are not ill. The very purpose of me being with a client is for them to have someone do the things they are now not capable of doing, thus patience and understanding are a must. Being kind is not forced, it is inna te. It comes out naturally and could be felt instantly. Family members of my previous clients could attest to the care I have done for their loved-one. I am open to suggestions and listen carefully to details. I never assume what to do because it doesn't hurt to ask. It is always the client's convenience that is my priority before mine. I am a fun-loving widowed dad of two teen-aged stepsons and a 6-year old daughter. The convenience of working hourly to juggle my responsibilities as a single dad and caregiver made me choose this noble career. Though a related education can help do the job, but it's the love and compassion to do a certain job will make the difference of fulfilling an excellent job coupled with enough experiences as it is the best teacher in life. Kindness radiates and felt on the first meeting. Integrity is a must in this industry, thus, care giving is based on trust that should never be broken. I have been an In-Home Support Service provider (IHSS) in the Los Angeles County. Please feel free to ask should you have more inquiries? I am more than willing to talk to you in person or by phone at your most convenient time. Thank you and anticipating to hear from you soon. Cheers! ... more
