About Teresa

I have been a caregiver for over 30 years and enjoy working with people and being part of their lives. I ran a retirement home as an assisted-living director and ran the dining room and started the Alzheimer's unit. I have been working with home health agencies and also at facilities and enjoy doing activities with the residence and seeing people smiling and laughing because most of them do not have families that come and visit them so basically we are their family. I enjoy being a caregiver and being in their homes because then you get to be one on one with them which makes caregiving more personable and it's a blessing that most of them can stay in their homes. Being a caregiver is not a talent or something that you can be trained on it's mostly what's in your heart and knowing that the elderly need good people to take care of them and One day we are going to be in the position where we will need someone to take care of us so knowing that there are good caregivers out there it just makes it easier on the family to take care of their loved one.

Christina R.

Hello my name is Christina i am 26 years old i was a caregiver for almost 2 years. I became a caregiver in a small establishment here in my home town of Hatch N.M. i felt i was led to this job not knowing i would learn the importance of becoming a caregiver. I learned that being a caregiver comes with alot of responsabilites and amazing rewards being the one person our residents loved ones could trust and be at piece knowing that their love one would be in great hands especially for those who can't so it themselves for different reasons. I worked night shift and some days when needed I can say it was hard but because i loved what i did so to me it wasn't a job but an amazing oppurtunity to have a career in being able to be the caregiver for my resdients from the minute i walked into their lives but best psrt when they walked into mine.. I had different residents with completely different personalities all special in their own way. As i had great amazing memories i had sad ones where i had to say good bye to 4 of my residents as in to being next to them on their last breathe and it was the hardest part as a caregiver but with all of the good and the sad experiences i had being a caregiver at Jim wood home i love my job because i was able to be the one to care for my residents. Each one has a huge impact in my life even the ones who beat me up in my eyes was tough love . Everything I did working at Jim wood home was cooking, cleaning, hygiene, passing medicine and in some cases holding their hands and letting them know i was there in there last moments its a tuff job but the most rewarding one i have had the privelage to have. One personal achievement I can say I'm proud of the most is being a single mother to my mom and as tuff as some situations get i never stopped and never will stop fighting for my daughter Autumn is an amazing little girl who i love dearly and she has been my biggest achievement in life itself.
