About Ariana

In a way, I've always been a caregiver. I used to care for my great grandmother who sadly passed away this past Christmas. I like to think of myself as someone who loves people. I like to help those in need. What helps me be a great caregiver is my empathy. To care for those who took once took care of us. Since I was emotionally-close to my great grandmother, I would never want anyone to treat her bad. That's why I care for my patients the same way I care for those I love. What I enjoy most about being a caregiver is the smiles on the patient's faces at the end of the day. Sometimes a client's kids don't often have the time to spend time with their parents and can leave the parents a bit deserted. And all the patient needs is someone to spend time with them and just be a good company. And when I provide this to my the clients I have worked with, and I get to see their faces at the end of the day when I give my goodbye... that makes me happy.

I've been an active caregiver for the past 15 years or so, both as a live-in and live-out caregiver. Most of my working experience comes from outside of the US. I started working as a caregiver because needed a job and earn money(do not let yourself fooled by anyone that says otherwise ) and as a single mom of three you can guess that i had no choice in choosing what i considered at that time that i would like. During the years i earned so much more than money. I started out with a job and ended up with having more and more family members as each and one of the patients that i assisted become in some way my mother/father, my daughter/son and a challenge to build up my empathic skills . Ended up understanding that caregiving is not a JOB although it's paid. You treat not just people but a very fragile class of people. They definitely need our assistance in daily chores but that is not enough , they need somebody that does not define them only trough their disability. Caregiving it's not just about taking care of a body it is a 360 degree assistance which consider the person in a holistic way (body,mind and spirit) As a caregiver i might fail in some chores(nobody is perfect) but one thing that i am proud of is that as much as i could i tried to bring joy. Hard but necessary was when I had to assist patients in an point where life comes to an end. In some cases I sing their favourite song, hold a hand, give a caress to the person in need and explain to family members that it is perfectly normal to be scared or to suffer and to assure them that they are not alone.
