Looking for a high calibre caregiver with great references? Look no further. I am the one! :-)
I have 15+ years of experience as a certified Nursing Assistant (CNA), highly skilled, great personality, efficient, resourceful and well rounded. Assist with all areas of personal care, help with errands, transport to and from doctors' appointments, prepare meals, do laundry, assist with bathing and toileting, transfers with gait belts and hoyer lifts, etc.
Took care of last patient (bedridden last 4 years) as a live-in CNA for almost 10 years - 2008 through 2017 when she passed away. Available for live-in or hourly. CPR certified. Level ll background check and First Aid training. It is a fact in my life to say that, by being a caregiver has a rewarding inner satisfaction and happiness, by knowing I am giving each client the opportunity to be cared with compassion and love.I am a caring,professional,dedicated caregiver and my long time experience makes me to believe that, I can provide the best care a client can have while in my care.My personal achievement that I am proud of by being a caregiver, is the difference I have made in each client's lives by being a good listening,advisor,encouraging and providing for each one the renew of their zest for life.I love what I do with professionalism and love. I have over 20 yrs experience with Alzheimer's disease, dementia, diabetes, high blood pressure,patients with physical disabilities and many other health problems. I have excellent letter of references. Thanks. Eliana. (786)908-6155. Personality - This is the single most important ingredient to consider. Caregivers need an innate sense of selflessness and empathy, and sometimes what may seem like a natural personality fit can be deceiving. Most people have a good degree of human compassion but only those with the right set of inner ingredients can voluntarily sustain themselves over time. Don't assume that one personality type is best until you have experience with it. Look for "sweetness," a willingness to serve, an absence of "attitude," and the patience to weather a patient's bad days. Be leery of people who stipulate non-medical tasks they won't do. With the exception of injections, wound care and dispensing medication out of prescription containers, there should not be much they won't do. It's their attitude toward work that matters most.
Reliability - Caregivers work largely unsupervised. Hourly caregivers can run into all manner of obstacles in getting to and from their assignment locations and excuses abound. Prior references will provide clues as to whether or not they can be relied upon. Take this seriously but not too seriously. References can provide a measure of what will happen when you are not around but a lot of people are reluctant to disclose negative characteristics about former caregivers. They are unwilling to expose themselves to possible recrimination and often don't want to harm someone's chance to make a living.
Honest, caring,loving these some the things that makes me a good care giver....
Being a caregiver for 28 years has helped me in so many ways, I have worked in Hospitals, Nursing home Facilities, Private Duty, etc. I love what I do in helping each client I've ever worked with. Taking care of sick people that needs my help gives me joy in my heart and it let me know they need people to work with them that care.
Hi my name is Sheylene. I'm a CNA/ HHA, I have been taking care of patients since I was young , my mother was an RN and I used to go with her to her private patients when I was 14 and 15 years old from that time I knew that this is what I wanted to do I wanted to have the one on one with my patience and enjoy and get to know them and their families. I have worked with quadriplegics patience, Parkinson patients, stroke prescience, heart attack patients, brain injuries, spinal injuries, Alzheimer's patients, dementia patients, and just regular patients that need help with their daily living . I love doing what I do because every new patient I go to I learn something new I learned either to cook something new or I learn to make something crochet I learn about their lives the way they grew up things that I didn't know about and that's why I love that I could be able to talk to them, you form a relationship you learned to love and care for these patients and that's why I love what I do. I am 38 years old I have two kids pretty old now the baby is 13 I am married for the past 15 years. I have been doing healthcare since 2002 I worked privately and also with agencies I have all my in-service is up-to-date my Leison is up-to-date, also I have my level two fingerprint background if needed. And I would love to get to know a lot more families and learn a lot more new things. thank you
