I became a caregiver because of my Godmother. She was in home hospice care back in the year 2000. She was my first patient. I sat with her and read to her during her hospital visits. She later encouraged me to get into hospice because she thought that I am good at crossing people over. I come from a long line of nurses. My mother was an RN, and when she got sick I was the one who took care of her, I told Mom that she was NOT allowed to go through chemo and cancer by herself. I had to help her from start to finish no matter what. When Mom died at home, I was the one who called time of death. I really felt like a doctor at that moment. I could feel the stethoscope around my neck, and the white coat on my arms. (Despite the fact that I was at home in my house clothes.) I love working in senior care because it is just a natural fit for me. My Dad and I took care of his father (my grandfather) when he was in hospice. Thanks to him, one of my neighbors approached me and asked if I could take care of her 90 year old Aunt. I would go over to her house to hang out, give her meals, help her back and forth to the restroom, and watch her favorite shows: Jepardy! and any baseball game that was on TV. She danced (With the help of her walker) during her 100th birthday party! Sadly she passed at the young age of 104 the day after my Mom died. This year I took care of a Father and his daughter almost at the same time. He had Dementia and she had cancer. After he passed away, I just automatically took care of her. I knew that she would need night help and so her family and I took turns caring for her. That was just so easy for me all because of Mom and my neighbor. I learned so much from them that I finally decided that I should just get my Associates degree in nursing and hospice. I don't drive nor do I have a drivers license. However I arrive Super early to jobs because I severely distrust the Chicago Transit System.

Single mom of a teenager Started caregiving 6 years ago The people I have met has made me a stronger person and I love what I do, love the variety of people I have met , but in this job you have to be very patient and know how to deal with a lot of challenges and behaviors, are jobs aren't easy and you have to deal with stressful situations and know how to deal with them , every year we have to take are annual Training and refresher courses, my main specialty is Dementia and Alzheimer's disease, but that's why I love my job to help people and sometimes they need to someone to talk too, or just a shoulder to cry on, being a single parent makes me stronger in doing my job and know I have someone to live for and help older clients in there daily lives and endeavors.

I enjoy assisting and caring for others that rely on me to recover and encourage a better day. Some of my clients had no family support, I became the person that provided daily functions that they could not perform on their own. A smile , patience and companionship allows us to bond and enjoy each others company. I have worked with a clint that came home from the hospital from having a stroke, he is now being cared for by family and has tge ability to do task after being bed bound. I enjoy engaging with people that can not or can do everyday activity, being able to provide stability is rewarding that's my goal.

Being patient,loving, caring, compassionate, and highly experienced make me a good caregiver. This is what I have been doing before I came to this country. Out of 6 siblings, I was the only one taking care of my Mom with the assistance of my daughter who is now a medical doctor and now in the university pursuing her masters degree in public health here in the U.S. I feel so much comfortable taking of people either young or old. It is my joy to contribute positively to general care of elderly people. I personally relate very well with my client and their families, that most of them treat me like members of their families. I still have contact with most of the families I have worked for. They sometimes take me out for my birthdays celebrations , some calls on my birthdays, some sends messages on my birthdays. I think this a great achievement, because if I did not do good jobs for them, they will not remember me to give me such wonderful honors.

Clients realize I'm their priority I'm there to help with DAL's while allowing them to be in charge. After my assistance with bathing and grooming the client easily picks out clothing for the day ahead. I prepare meals and remind clients to take medication if needed. I make sure a nutritious breakfast is served . They love reminders of family. Viewing family pictures and things in their home that makes it a home again. Clients love when we go for walks to get exercise rather in a wheel chair or walker. Range of motion exercises helps keep the body moving and agile. I'm just their to make them sure of themselves again.

Hello there, Here is a little bit about myself. My name is Lana and I have been passionate about nursing and taking care of others since I was 7 years old. Growing up, I had a sick mother who has always been under medical care and it is since then I had an opportunity to be in contact with doctors and learn much about the healthcare field. I graduated with a nursing diploma over 20 years ago, and have been taking care of a wide arrange of senior citizens for 11 years in Chicagoland area. My most experience is live-in and live-out senior care of elderly with diabetes, dementia, Alzheimer's, etc. I am dependable and flexible provider of physical and emotional care to the elderly. Please review the list of services I provide and do not hesitate to ask questions. I have my own vehicle and a valid IL Driver's license, clean driving record and background check.
