My name is Sheila. I have 34 yrs experience in healthcare. 11 yrs as a Nurse Aide "when certification was not required." 17 yrs as a Certified Nurse Aide and Medication Aide and 6yrs as CPhT and Registered. I've worked in homes, nursing homes, hospitals,retirement homes, MHMR Facilities and Prisons administering Medications, taking vital signs, documentation on chg's due to new medication,assist with bathes, showers,meals,grooming, hygiene,dressing,accompaning client to DR's appt grocery shopping and cooking. When client or family member is able to request their wants or needs and the request has been accomplished through the Caregiver it merits instant satisfaction for both Client and Caregiver. I chose not to work for big Companies, because of "POLITICS". Next to winning the Lottery, this is most rewarding job in the industry. A Private Caregiver. Thanks, hope to hear from you soon.
I was called to being a caregiver in 2016. I was looking to bring a deeper purpose to my life and started on the weekends to see how I would like it. By the beginning of 2017 I went full time, and working for an in home assistance company. Many clients like my bubbly, sweet, and cheerful disposition. I can however tailor my attitude accordingly to best fit my client. Though all have said this, I am consistent, loyal, and trustworthy. I'm not over bearing, or pushy, and always focused on my clients, not my phone. I specialize in Dementia care, and verbal abrasiveness doesn't make me run off. I know how to redirect behavior, and can calmly remove myself if need be from the situation. Many times I would return to the room and my client would have no recollection of the incident. I offer compassion, love and honesty, so it would be a pleasure to assist your loved one and a great opportunity to give them care they deserve.
