I'm a bit more of a quiet person. I'm a good listener. I am very punctual and hardworking at my jobs. My mother is a Type I diabetic and I have spent several months taking care of her. And I have helped out my father when he has had two bouts of Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma. I have a certain amount of understanding when it comes to taking care of people that need a little bit of help with getting around day-to-day. I have been doing this type of work for over a year now. I help people with getting dressed, bathing, toileting, and getting ready for bed. I have also done light housework/cleaning, laundry, preparing meals, etc. Being a caregiver is very rewarding when the people that I work with feel appreciated, listened to and taken care of.
What makes me a great care giver is first of all, my heart. I do this because I love to and when you do what you love it is not work. I am caring empathetic and compassionate. With over 36 years of senior care, I have extensive experience in ALL aspects of caring for the elderly and providing the very best in quality of life care. To name a few; Alzheimer/Dementia Care and communication strategies(redirection, therapeutic fibbing, or "going along" as long as it doesn't put the client at risk). Anxiety reduction, social interaction and companionship. Bathing and personal hygiene, great cook and homemaker. Observant and aware of changes in clients well-being. educated in home safety and recognizing possible barriers to client safety and ways to improve or remove those barriers. Excellent communicator and team player. There are many things I have done over the years as a caregiver that I am proud of. One in general, as to all my client,s has been to provide the very best in care and compassion and afford them the quality of life, respect and dignity we all deserve. As a care manager for my previous client, I was able to ensure that she was truly loved and happy. I ensured all her wishes were met and she knew she was cared for as well as her home and her cat. Her knowing was important to me.

I am a dedicated CNA with over 11 years of experience. After working extensively in nursing/rehabilitation units, I transitioned to live in care. I love being a caregiver because it allows more people to remain in their own homes. I am a quiet person upon meeting someone but once I get to know them, it's always a wonderful experience. I love learning about their lives and hobbies. I'm an avid reader and I love to travel. Although I'm centrally located in one area, I am free to travel to whoever is a good match and needs the help.
I love to serve others and am called to work in this field. I feel people should have the most independent life possible with the proper supports and services to keep them safe. I love to laugh, I am patient, kind, compassionate, empathetic and flexible. I have been a caregiver for many years. My current position allows me to transition people from long term care facilities into independent or assisted living. It is a joy and previlage to help people.

Every since I was around 9 years old I knew then I wanted to help other's . My parents let me watch a 6 weeks old baby boy even though they were just across the street and parents up stairs, it was a joy! Since then I started at Ft. Carson military family as a red cross volunteer at age 16, after had other jobs but I was always drawn back to caring of other's. I have many different levels of care experience including Hospice as caring for children of many different levels of care as special needs adults. I have worked in hospital settings as nursing hms as asst. living including personal care & private care. I have been a personal asst to those that needed help organizing their lives such as book keeping, mail, areas of concerns, cooking, cleaning, errands, a lot of hands on, Dr appts, meetings with love ones as social workers. I had my own business so I'm very aware of customer service as patience. My, my, my to look bk at years of experience 20 plus as becoming a great grandma only had one child a girl, some tells me I don't look like a grandma let alone a great grandma, I give thanks for good genes & most times healthy eating and if I may say so the lord above, please don't let me saying the lord above scare u off from hiring me; I don't push my beliefs on anyone. I like to say most times I have more good days then bad as most of us , I hope.. I'm register with the state with a CNA license as CPR through the red cross. I have to say if I read this I would hire me, ha, ha. We all can use a smile as some laughter considering these days events! Thanks for considering me. Take care you and yours!
1. I became a Caregiver because I love to help our senior's live a better and happier lifestyle. 2. What I like about being a Caregiver is that I meet client's that have wonder stories and it's a really good feeling knowing that I can be there for them. 3. My personal achievement I am proud of is being able to provide for my daughter. 4. A little bit about me is, I have a 8 month year old daughter, I live on my own, I love food and I love to socialize. I can make you laugh, I'm very independent & did I mention how I love food?
