I have been a professional Caregiver for six years. I feel I am an excellent caregiver! I am very friendly, easy to get along with, stable, compassionate, caring and conscientious. I take excellent care of my clients, making sure they are well tended to, clean and hair done (if asked), all for the benefit of their sense of pride and feelings of well-being. I've had 15 years' experience working in the medical field in many capacities: sec'ty, receptionist, phlebotomist, surgical assisting, EKG's, chest x-rays, etc., and held the position of medical transcriptionist, both in two hospitals and medical offices. All the above skills were taught me personally by the physician's for whom I worked. I have a clean driving record and have a large car with ample room for a walker (if required).
Respect is one of my very top priorities when treating a patient! Their comfort, level of dignity and independence is very important for me to provide. I have been a caregiver for over six years now, and have letters of recommendation attesting to my expertise in this field.
