I started out my journey in the healthcare field because of my sick mother. I was amazed at how at ease she was having people come into her home and help her with things so that she could remain at home. I decided then that I wanted to help people be able to stay in their home and live a normal life.
I have been a paralegal for over 25 years. At the time of my aunt's illness, I was unemployed and able to take care of her 24/7. When I worked for Mrs. Margentino, it was on a part time basis. I also lived with and took care of my mother for 30 years, taking her to doctors, administering her medicine, shopping and light housekeeping, and preparing home cooked breakfast, lunch and dinner until she passed away in 2015. I also taught adult education coursed part time at an Adult High School for 20 years. This included counseling between parent and their children from time to time.
Ever since a little girl, I have always had a passion working with the elders. I have been working as a certified nurse assistant for roughly 6. 5 months where I had the amazing opportunity to make a difference. Previously working in a skilled nursing and rehabilitation center, I have learned many skills and tasks. I have experience with all ADL's; personal care, transferring, ambulatory and many more. I have experience with dementia and Alzheimer's, catheters, feeding tubes I have recently started working as a home health aid. I'm willing to do light house cleaning along with meal preparation. My experience in in home care has been the most rewarding as it allows the senior to remain in their own home. I have very compassionate and I enjoy working with elders
1. What makes me like a great caregiver is that I treat my patient like my own family, I always to my mind that taking my patient is like I'm also taking care of my family 2. I love doing caregiving because it is my passion to take care of them, love them and give them the needs they needed, 3. I enjoyed most being caregiver is that being able to handle the behavior your patient is giving to you and yet you find your self it is very interesting and you still love your patient. It's like loving them with out asking for return to love you back 4. Personal achievement I am proud of is that I was able to stay calm in times of emergency when my patient oxygen sat went down to 52%, when shes having difficulty in breathing, she became cyanotic or become blue and I was doing a back percussion to her, her breathing went back to normal, (Ps. She had most form so I couldn't able to do CPr- that's why back percussion was applied)

I became a caregiver because I wanted to help make a difference in quality of life for those that needed help. I find it very rewarding when I know I am able to emotionally and physically support someone that is not able to do things on their own whether it be to help wash, dress, assist to medical appointments, shopping cleaning or just providing companionship. I began as a direct care support staff 13 years ago for Jefferson Rehabilitation Center in Watertown, NY. In 2004 I moved to Massachusettes and became Direct Care Staff for Turning Point located in Newburyport Ma. for 3 years. I have been doing private home care for a 90 yr old woman for the last 7+ years during which time I acquired my CNA certification and more recently I completed a Hospice course in October of this year.
I thoroughly take pride in assisting others with living their best life while assisting them with living in their own home as long as they possibly can. I am patient, kind, caring and understand that with age comes many complications that sometimes takes a special person to be able to cope with. I enjoy helping others and love to see the smile on their face when they are able to still accomplish small tasks on their own, even though they sometimes need understanding and a helping hand.
Hello! I am a Mother of 2 grown children and I drive school bus during the school year. I am also a Licensed Practical Nurse. I also am a business owner. I love people! I'm available in the Watertown, NY area during the summer months only. My plan is to eventually escape the frigid long winters and go South during the winter months. I would follow you South if you needed me !!
I believe myself to be a good candidate for your organization for several reasons. 1) I have worked most of my adult life giving care and helping those in need and in end of life situations. 2) I have an ability to get along very well with and relate to those whom I give care to. Personality wise I am calm and patient and very understanding and empathetic to the challenges people face when living through times of need. I understand what it is all about with Alzheimers victims and why they get confused, angry, depressed, regressed and even have outbursts of anger. I know why this happens and typically what is best to do when facing most of these situations. I also have deep concern for people who are in need of care, regardless of how disastrous the disease may or may not be. 3) What attracts me most to being a care giver for individuals at home is that I am directly helping them to keep out of the nursing home, when most want very much to stay at home in their own environment. 4) I am reliable - I am responsible and reliable in not only coming to work, but showing up for it in the first place! I rarely ever call in unless it is an all out unavoidable situation I won't call in, period. I realize the importance of my presence in the home as these people are not able to do the chores which need to be done around their homes, or to cook, or to get help with their personal care. I have 2 dependable vehicles, one being a big 4x4 truck that does quite well in heavy winter weather. For these reasons, you can depend on me to fulfill my responsibilities, and so can the client, and so can the client's family.
I started volunteering at the keep home back in the 90s when my mother was a nurse on the 7th floor and my father worked at the hospital with mentally disabled people. I have been raised around the medical profession all of my life. I enjoy being in this atmosphere because I learn alot from the individuals. I get to know and see allot of great things and learn about the person outside of what they have been diagnosed with medically.
