About Telecia

I am a happy, positive, forward thinking, enthusiastic individual who have an innate passion to make a postive difference in the lives of others. My passion to help others achieve a full live and regain independence propelled me to work in the healthcare field/ederly population. I have acquired many skills(great communication, organized, adaptable, active listener) over the years that helps me to be an effective caregiver. But, my empathetic and compassionate nature has allowed me to build trust and good rapport, and have meaningful connections with all clients i work with. I enjoy working as a caregiver because it's such a learning and rewarding experience. I love putting smiles on the faces of all my clients and seeing them achieve milestones that they thought was impossible. I see myself or parents whenever I'm taking care of a client which has helped me to provide quality care and approach them with unconditional postive regard. To date, the personal achievement i am most proud of is helping a family unite who was seperated for years. I am an amazing caregiver who will treat your love one with the utmost respect, go above and beyond and provide excellent care.

Making a difference in people's lives has been a passion of mine. My family owned a Nursing Home/Home for the Aged for 36 years. This is were my passion for taken care of people was instilled in me. I worked as a caregiver, cook and handled recreation programs for our residents. Throughout the years I worked for Connecticut Hospice, The Alzheimer's Resource Center, and as a Private Caregiver for children and adults. I had the honor of caring for my Dad and both my Grandmother who all had Alzheimer's. There are many types of Dementia. Training and knowledge is important to understanding the needs of your love ones and clients you care for. This past December I completed training courses for The National Caregiver Certification Program, Understanding Alzheimer's and Dementia and 10 Warning Signs of Alzheimer's. These certification courses provided me with new ways to communicate with Dementia clients. I make sure the things that are most important to my client are done every shift. This is achieved by asking your priorities, then once they're completed if time allows I do my best to tackle the non-priorities. Compassionate, reliable, punctual, treating everyone with dignity and respect are values I live by.

I am a very reliable and friendly caregiver, I love to care for people young,old,disability, handicapped. It's doesn't become just a Job for me, but to see a smile on person face says it all for me. I enjoy caring for the elderly or people's needs because one day I might be in their shoe so I treat everyone how I would want to be treated, which is with respect, being honest, caring , trusting me to care for them. From my experience I've heard a lot of people tell me that I'm very patient and loving. I always look forward to seeing every client home I go to and they look forward to seeing me and that warm friendly smile I gave them
