Thank you for taking the time to review my profile! I will start off by saying I've always had a heart [?]for the Elderly. My desire had started when I worked at Davita Dialysis clinic. For 2 years. I can honestly say you need to have compassion and empathy for these patients who enduring such critical treatment for their life. Its not something they looked forward too. Who wants to get stuck with 2 big needles , and sit in a chair for 2-4 hours 3 days a week. ?Nobody! I believe for most of our patients , what they did look forward to was seeing their PCT's who cared for them. I tried my best to bring a smile to their face, everyday make them laugh, give them hope, encourage them, let them know that I cared for each of my patients. If they allowed me , I prayed for them too. Last year I explored the in home caregiving field , a close friend of mine needed someone so desperately care for her grandmawmaw. To know that your not only helping that patient , you are also help that family. She was told she wouldn't be able to walk after for 4 months after her accident. I had her walking in 3 weeks! Being consistent and with her persistence doing our physical therapy exersizes everyday .My job duties were to cook her 3 meals a day, shop for her, light cleaning, campanionship, we read the bible, read our daily devotionals, she loved to sing worship songs and get her make up and lashes done by me. My other passions and jobs are Professionsl makeup Artistry and singer. We enjoyed eachother so much. I worked with her for 6 months. I was sad they had to let me go. They did not need my care any longer. But I gained so much experience. Before you make your decision in choosing your caregiver for your loved one I will end with this... This job isn't a hard job, its a heart [?] Job.. Happy choosing
