I enjoy helping and working with Seniors in their homes vs. a living Facility. : )
I enjoy helping them be able to live their quality of life in their own homes. When elderly people talk, I'm an attentive listener, I was told by a client once, if you listen closely you just may learn something you can use throughout your life. I have experience working with clients that have: alzheimers, dementia, diabetes, parkinson's, recovering from falls, strokes. I'm caring, compassionate, dependable, empathetic, honest, open minded, patient and trustworthy, I'm a woman of my word. I am a great caregiver, because caring for others is my passion. I started working as a C.N.A in nursing homes when I was 17 years old. Over the years, I have gained enough experience to be certified to work in hospitals. Although exciting to be in a hospital, I have found that my heart keeps calling me back to work in the nursing homes, or with clients who wish to remain in their homes. I cared for my grandmother in her final days. It reiterated the importance of home for a person, to me. To be cared for in the home is a special gift, that I truly feel fulfilled giving to clients and their families. Home is a place where the person can feel safe to be vulnerable and needy. Home is a place where the person can have reminders of a happy life lived independently. And home is a place where family members will always feel welcome and comfortable enough to visit frequently. It was important to my grandma, and I want to honor her wishes and memory by offering my service to others . I am patient , dependable, empathetic, and physically strong. I am flexible with hours and salary!
