My philosophy on care, as an extremely compassionate person naturally, is to take as equivalent as possible to how i would want someone to take care of me. Being originally from Africa, we were taught patience and compassion all our life. I was attracted to being a caregiver by the fact that it is care that someone needs but it is an act of love, a constant good deed with which one can earn a living.My peers usually lament about how patient, how considerate and how cool, calm and collected i am under any and all circumstances. I deeply care about people and i always make sure i exhibit such.
my greatest reward is to see someone feel better and to get them to smile. ive been sick before and i know what's it's like to be around someone without passion. It take a special person to be a care giver their are times you deal with the good, bad, and the ugly. im a divocee also an employee at yale. i have a great personallity

I have a passion/ patience for taking care of the elderly. I started taking care of my own grandparents and thats when i knew my help was needed. My greatest joy about helping the elderly is listening to the stories they tell about their childhood. Be able to be there for my family. I'm very responsible, trustworthy, honest, reliable and I love to read and learn new things.
I feel I am a great caregiver because I care about the person as a whole and do not treat them as an object. Also, in almost 25 years I have a wide variety of experiences in a variety of settings. I have taken care of all age groups and have enjoyed all of it for various reasons. I began 5 years after my mother had passed and I had assisted in her care. My training began after leaving the printing industry. Now, I have come to a pinnacle and am attempting nursing school.
Hello and Welcome to my profile! I'm Erica Sims. I currently reside in the New Haven, CT area. I enjoy meditation, reading, writing, yoga, pilates, and finding new things to learn. I love being able to help the senior women in my community get the best quality care at home. I'm reliable, dependable, and compassionate towards the people I serve. My mother passed away suddenly back in 2007. I never got to say goodbye or even go through a sick process. I had no idea she was even ill from a heart condition. My dad passed 4 years later from lung cancer. He was stubborn and didn't like that fact he needed help. Since I wasn't able to help my parents I found peace in helping other people's love ones get the help that they need. I know most people have families of their own to look after and can't provide the daily care that their ailing love ones need. I would like to help with that. What I enjoy most about being a caregiver is hearing my clients response to the question 'What are you grateful for today?' and their answer is You. I love knowing that I am taking care of them emotionally, mentally, as well as their physical needs. They trust the safe, caring, and compassionate environment I create. I've obtained Dementia Care, Alzheimer's, Parkinson's Disease & Home Health Aide Certificate. In May 2019, I became certified as a Health & Life Coach with advanced skills in Heart Disease, Weight loss & Diabetes. So I can broaden my skills to better help my clients. If you would like to talk to me, please feel free to leave me a message and I will get back to you right away. Look forward to hearing from you soon. Have a blessed day!
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.
After many years of working in the insurance industry, I decided to make a career change and become a caregiver. This is something that comes naturally to me and is a great fit. I have 4 children who are 8, 6, and twins who are 8 weeks. I enjoy taking care if others and making someone's life happier and easier on them. I get great fulfillment from helping others. I am a very trustworthy person who is dependable at all times. Love, compassion, patience, and respect are traits that you will find in me. I Am currently available to work Monday-Friday 5pm to 9pm (later if needed as well)
