More Caregivers You Might Like
I am a very competent and enthusiastic caregiver with an outgoing personality, great communication skills, and a passion for taking care of others. I love caring for and helping people, and have actively participated in and volunteered with many caregiving programs. I sincerely believe that this job gives me immense fulfillment and satisfaction, as I truly love caring for people. I looked after my grandfather after he had a stroke. The stroke affected my grandfather's leg movement and memory, and it became difficult for him to walk. Caring for my grandfather increased my interest in care and compassion for the elderly. I have a strong background in caregiving, and I feel that the professional experiences I have uniquely qualify me to care for your loved ones. For example, I have volunteered at Mnkhanya Community Based Home and Blessed Hope Care in rural Zambia caring for the elderly people. Through volunteering with organizations such as the Maternal Health Association of Zambia, the Kenya Voluntary Development Association and Coordinating Committee for International Voluntary Service, and Service Civil International, I have worked on diverse projects focusing on care for the elderly in Europe and Africa. My First Aid and CPR certifications along with more than a year of extensive experience as a caregiver give me confidence in my ability to do this job well. My professional background has provided me with broad experience in this line of work.
I hold a strong desire in assisting others with their life experiences, self- growth and personal well- being. This trait is visible throughout my resume as I have worked in education, childcare, and caring for adults. Working with the elderly population allows me the opportunity to absorb the knowledge that has been gained over the years while also enjoying some of their life stories and assisting them in their daily living. I hold CNA licenses in MD, VA, and TN. along with recently applying for a DC license and I am CPR-First Aid Certified. I am a compassionate respectable, friendly person that will provide privacy, companionship and safety to all persons under my care. I currently work in an Assisted Living Facility in Fairfax, VA. and I have worked in private homes as well.
