Being honest, caring, punctual and following instructions makes me a great caregiver. It's making a client feel comfortable about being themselves and caring about their needs that's very meaningful to me as I'm learning as I go along that not all clients are the same. My personal achievement is being able to make him/her laugh again and love life no matter what their circumstances. I have been doing caregiving for 15years.
I believe what makes me a great caregiver is I generally care about the ones I take care of. Some companies tell you that part of your job is not to get close to your clients or patients, that you can't have a relationship with the ones you take care of on a daily basis. I will always go above and beyond for the ones under my care. I always feel and treat them as if they are one of my family members as well. I wouldn't do anything for them that I wouldn't do for my own mom , grandma, aunt, uncle, dad, grandfather. Not only am I there for the client/patient but I'm also there for the families as well. Questions, concerns, suggestions, keeping them up to date on conditions. Communication is big with me on keeping everyone on the same page so that the best care can be given at all times. I became a caregiver because my ex husband was diagnosed with stage 4 prostate cancer. He called me from the hospital asking for my advise and help. I left California to go back to New York to help him threw his treatments and all of his struggles. His fight has been long and hard and he has not given up yet on life. Seeing other family members go in and out of nursing homes being neglected , alone, and losing their will to live has been a struggle and I've taken caregiver positions with all of my terminally ill relatives and a few friends. I want others to feel that their loved ones are safe and taken care of when they are unable to be there with them. That's the main reason why I do what I do. The fulfillment I get when I know I've made a difference for someone else. Whether it's for the patient that is passing or the family members that need that reassurance their loved one is being properly taken care of. I enjoy everything there is to being a care giver.
I am a caring and dependable person i love helping others. I became a caregiver to help people who need it when families are not available or at work. I like being able to help other to live in their homes as long as they can,with assistance. I studied Family Consumer Education at San Joaquin Delta College, and got my ECE certification their. I have my CNA/ HHA Certification also. Available 3:00 pm to 11:00 pm.
I became a care giver because I have a passion for helping people with special needs. Through my past experiences, I have acquired skills and abilities highly relevant to the Caregiver position: • Track record of providing assistance to elderly in activities of daily living • Well versed in motivating clients to enjoy their independence • Committed to perform housekeeping tasks; washing clothes and dishes, scrubbing bathroom and making beds • Focused on tidy living environment for clients through living area sanitation, ventilation, proper lighting and furnishings arrangement • Adept at implementing care plans provided by the care manager and client’s family My caregiving skills coupled with my enthusiasm to help others make me a unique candidate for this exciting opportunity.
I am a very compassionate and patient caregiver with 17 years of experience helping to care for individuals with Alzheimer's and other forms of dementia. I began providing care when a close friend of mine needed help caring for her sick mother. I worked with this sweet lady for seven and a half years in which I refined my caregiving skills. The bond that I build with all of my clients is unmistakably genuine and sweet. Over my career I have cared for 15 different people and each one of them and the experiences that we have shared has helped to enrich my ability to care for the next one. I am also a proud mother of two wonderful children and that in itself speaks volume about my ability to care for others. I truly care for my clients as if they were a part of my own family.
I enjoy helping and working with Seniors in their homes vs. a living Facility. : ) I enjoy helping them be able to live their quality of life in their own homes. When elderly people talk, I'm an attentive listener, I was told by a client once, if you listen closely you just may learn something you can use throughout your life. I have experience working with clients that have: alzheimers, dementia, diabetes, parkinson's, recovering from falls, strokes. I'm caring, compassionate, dependable, empathetic, honest, open minded, patient and trustworthy, I'm a woman of my word.
I am a very nurturing and kind person. I am very sensitive to the physical and emotional needs of those around me, very empathetic, gentle, good sense of humor. Treating people with respect is very important to me and I know it is to you as well. Most recently, for over a year, I worked with 2 female clients. One client is 98 with visual and hearing impairments, diabetes and mild dimentia. I was responsible for taking daily glucose readings, keeping records of her medical data/appointments/medication dispensing. I cooked her a hearty breakfast and we ate together. I introduced her to a game called "WordCross" and she loved to play every day with me. It was great for her mind and was a good social experience as well. Another client had early stage Alzheimers, but was highly functional. I provided companionship, meal preparation for her and her husband, fixed her hair, walked outside with her, did their grocery shopping, and occasionally we enjoyed shopping/lunch trips together. I have additional experience working with clients that have terminal cancer. I not only met their specific physical needs, but created an environment for them which brought them comfort and peace during the most difficult time of their lives. What made me most aware of the needs of seniors was when my own grandmother was near the end of her life. I helped her daily with dressing, grooming, feeding, and eventually accompanied her through her last days in hospice. I understand how important it is for families to feel confident that their loved one is being treated with gentleness and respect. I want to help seniors to have the best quality of life possible. I look forward to visiting with you to see how I could help meet the needs of your loved one, Amy
Being a caregiver for 17 + years is such an honor and has helped me in so many ways. It's all about putting away my needs to assist others. I love what I do in helping each client I've ever worked with and knowing what I did brought them joy and happiness is priceless. I am very patience, compassions, attentiveness, dependability and trustworthiness. The moments when you reflect back and see how you have helped someone is what CAREGIVING is all about!!
I am a great caregiver, because caring for others is my passion. I started working as a C.N.A in nursing homes when I was 17 years old. Over the years, I have gained enough experience to be certified to work in hospitals. Although exciting to be in a hospital, I have found that my heart keeps calling me back to work in the nursing homes, or with clients who wish to remain in their homes. I cared for my grandmother in her final days. It reiterated the importance of home for a person, to me. To be cared for in the home is a special gift, that I truly feel fulfilled giving to clients and their families. Home is a place where the person can feel safe to be vulnerable and needy. Home is a place where the person can have reminders of a happy life lived independently. And home is a place where family members will always feel welcome and comfortable enough to visit frequently. It was important to my grandma, and I want to honor her wishes and memory by offering my service to others . I am patient , dependable, empathetic, and physically strong. I am flexible with hours and salary!
I became a caregiver because I enjoy helping people; it makes me feel useful. I enjoy being a caregiver because the job allows me to help seniors with daily care. My greatest achievement was receiving my CNA license and beautician's license. I consider myself to be friendly, reliable, honest, and hardworking. I have been a CNA for 20 years and absolutely love my job.
I got into the Nursing field because I wanted to be in a career that helped people, I wanted to bring joy to people in unhappy situations.Working in Nursing Homes a lot of the workers are there for the wrong reasons, I understand that I am one unfortunate incident from being in their shoes and will want someone kind caring for me. And if could bring joy & happiness to someone in their last days I want to.
I have been a CNA for over 5 years I've worked in various acute care hospitals such as Highland Hospital, Kindred Hospital to name a few.
