I started helping my grandparents at a young age. I could relate to them, and would sit and listen to 78 rpm records, w/ my grandfather, and he would tell me stories about the music we listened to. I traveled around the World, w/ my parents at their families,and would have to help them in their needs. In 2000, I started working at Nursing Homes in Boulder, and have continued to this day. I can relate to the elderly, whether they are male or female. I like seeing them happy and pleased, when I have helped them in any way. The fact that I have been with various clients for over 6 yrs. continuously, before they have passed on. I live in Lafayette, Colo. Am a homeowner, am very religiously minded, and am always putting "other people first", before myself. I always think of the aspect of: "how would I feel, were I in the other individuals' shoes?" and how they would want to be treated?
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.
My name is Barbara Duus. I am a native of Colorado and have been married 30yrs. I have lived in my current home for 28years. I have over 40 years of caregiver experience. My goal as a caregiver is to keep one thriving in their own home; to spoil them; to provide a safe, nurturing, loving relationship and companionship. The individual I care for will feel special and loved. They will feel happiness, joy, contentment, balanced, engaged, and comforted. I am a caregiver because this is where I find my fulfillment in life. I started caring for my grandma, "Nano," when I was 13 years old. She was confined to a recliner chair.I will never forget those days with her. I knew then, I had found my calling in life. Aside from that, I am especially proud of the hospice care I have provided. I am creative, "old school," compassionate, honest, organized, patient and very empathetic to my clients needs.

Hello my name is Lynnett I am 32 years old and I have been working in some kind of caregiving big chunks of my life. When I was a teenager I would babysit family and people around my neighborhood, as I became an adult I worked as a nanny/assistant teacher at a Montessori school for two years . I worked with children who had autism as well as other behaviors. For the past five years I've been working in caregiving I enjoy working with the elderly very much. I've worked in facilities like Memory Care, skilled nursing as well as just Assisted Living. I enjoy working with the elderly a lot I was very close to my grandmother as a little girl and when I was 18 she passed away, but before she passed away I took care of her in her own home and that is kind of what got me into this field.

I know that I would be welcomed into your own personal home and therefore I am a guest as well as an employee so whatever rules or needs that your loved one has I am willing to abide by those. I know everybody has their own ways of doing things and I don't want to take control away from your family member I want them to know that I am only there to assist them and whatever they want me to do for them. I would love to assist you in anything that you need.

I am a retired RN, was a psych nurse in Washington State. I really enjoy working with the elderly. I am sensitive, compassionate and intuitive and am therefore able to anticipate my clients needs .. I have had 2 successful businesses in the healthcare industry. Additionally, I am enthusiastic. and always punctual.
I absolutely love the elderly as well as all ages. I'm 19 and have been doing this for a year. I stared at at home care then moved to a facility but I would rather be doing at home. Ever since I was little I used to go to church with my grandma and when I would go I wanted to hang out with the elderly. Until my grandma got sick with cancer I wanted to help out any person I could. I want to help the elderly as well as anyone else who needs it. What I enjoy most about being a caregiver is getting to know that person. Listen to all there stories and listen to what they need. I also love going home at the end of the day knowing I helped someone. A personal achievement that I have made is being a QMAP. Most people under the age of 25 do not have this and to me that is a big deal.
