I am a mother of two sons, I choose to be a caregiver/companion because I enjoy helping others, its soulful work and I believe my purpose. What makes me a great caregiver is that \\\\\\"I care\\\\\\" I am patient, organized, flexible and empathetic. I became a caregiver at a young age as second from the oldest of seven children, helping my mother was natural and important to me. Later in life she had a stroke in her late 30's, I continued to care for her throughout her life, she was my pal. Since then I have cared for seniors/veteran's in their private homes helping them, encouraging them with everyday activities, medication reminders, working with the treatment team to optimize care and comfort. I enjoy helping others in need or less fortunate than myself and the deep feeling of satisfaction it brings to me. Some personal achievements, when I was asked ( trusted) to babysit my neighbor's week old baby at the age of twelve, I was so honored ! Then at fourteen I saved a 4 year old boy who was bobbing up and down drowning in the deep end of a neglected swimming pool. I jumped into the dirty, cold, dark water in the middle of winter and saved the life of a little 4 year old twin boy. His twin sister was hysterical and the little boy was frightened but ok. I am comfortable and have worked in Human Services with all ages. I have all the necessary clearances from DOJ & CHP plus CPR & Child, plus TB to work in CA.
I became a caregiver because of 2 main reasons. 1st is I believe that being a caregiver brings spiritual treasures that will not spoil or be taken away. As a hospice aid for 7 years I realized that we or our spirit belongs to a place where we will no longer suffer. 2nd I always pray for my time when my body also become old and fragile. When that time comes I will also like to be treated the same way I treated my client, with respect, compassion and care. The thing I like about caregiver is the joy that I get after the client passes away and hear from family and friends that I have done a good job. The personal achievement that I can say was from my last case with a couple in Los Altos where the husband died. I was live-in for five days and at the final days of the client I remained with him all night and called the children early in the morning to come and say their final respect to their Father. And surely it was his last day and the children was so appreciative of it. Just a quote from his recommendation letter "It is my absolute pleasure to write this recommendation letter. Raul is a consummate professional and a kind, loving, attentive and compassionate caregiver. He is worthy of my unconditional praise, resulting from the outstanding service Raul provided our family during the time of need" "The bond of friendship Raul engendered became so rich that Dad missed him terribly on Raul's days off with his own family. He would light up upon Raul's return Dad confided freely"
