About Candida

I became a caregiver because I enjoy helping and assisting someone's loved one with Activities Of Daily Living or with making someone's loved one comfortable as much as possible if terminally ill or hospice. I feel that It's very rewarding to be a caregiver because you are the main one that's being counted on in making a difference in a patient's life. I enjoy being the one to making a difference in achieving a Patient's goal . I have had a patient that was totally bed ridden, on oxygen, Didn't eat much and just wanted to die. I helped her with breathing exercises, and Range of motions, And No matter what I didn't give up on her. She is walking today, no longer uses oxygen, and is now able to go visit family and friends, She is a totally different patient. I am proud to say I had a big part of that. I treat every patient with love and respect, as I would my own family member. Past Family members have been very happy with the care I have given their loved one. I have had personal job offers aside from my caregiving job, Because of the trust and dedication I have.
