I became a caregiver, when my mother became very ill. I decieded to stop working with my employer to take of my mother. I new everything about her and her needs. I new what it takes to care for her and I could spend all the time in the world with her. My mother was very important to me and my siblings and I couldn't trust anyone at the time of her sickness. I thought it would be hard and tiresome but it wasn't. We became more closer. She shared a lot of important things with me that I never knew about. I was glad to able to be in good health to take care of my mother who is so important to me and my siblings. I'm a proud daughter to know I was able to be there when she needed me and I was a shoulder she could lean on and a ear to listen to all the things she wanted to say, my mother was the best thing that ever happen to me. She was always there when we needed her. She cried when we cried, she hurt when we hurt, she was my only best friend and now she past away I truly miss her. I wish I can turn back the hands of time just to spend a little more time with her. She taught me everything I needed to know about life and how to appreciate the things we go through. She was the best of all mothers. So that's why I love working as a caregiver, it helps you help others go through their situation a little bit better, and give them comfort when they don't have anyone else to talk too. I give them hope of relief, my mother taught and showed me that. I love helping people who can't hel
I am Jodi Segars, 29 years old and just moved to Florence, SC in February. I have been working with the elderly for 9 years now. My whole family including my mother, aunt, sister, and sister in law all work in the healthcare field. I feel that honesty, trust, patience, caring are all personality traits it takes to be a great caregiver. Growing up I was always with my grandparents, always wanting to help my mom take care of others. I put others before myself. The most I enjoy about being a caregiver is the one on one time I get to spend with the client, get to know them, their likes and dislikes, try to let them be independent as possible. At the end of the day, knowing that I have helped someone in every way I can and cared for them and did my best I can gets me through each and everyday. I feel accomplished to provide care for anyone that needs it, and I do it with my utmost respect.
I am a caring person who gives my all to my clients. I really enjoy caring for people and making a difference in their lives. I enjoy interacting with my clients, like reading , conversation, games when appropriate and taking them for walks when possible. Personal achievements for me are seeing a smile or getting a hug from my clients when I arrive to take care of them. It makes me feel good to know that my clients enjoy seeing me to care for them.
I kinda always was a caregiver and didn't know it. Both of my parents worked and I was much older than my step brother and sister, so I did all the house work and taking care of them from an early age. I also grew up with my aunt who was a spastic quadriplegic, so I learned how to do a lot there. I have had many patients, most were the ones everyone else had bad trouble with. I'm kinda the guy, that I can handle pretty much anything from full Dementia, to full quadriplegic. I have my state license in CNA, ACNA, and Phlebotomy. I have excellent experience and very good references. The last question that I am proud of is: My mother was passing in the hospital and couldn't have her placed in a home. So I brought her home with me and kept her alive for another month before she passed away with me. At the end she had full blown dementia, it was quite an ordeal to go through. So with that experience it has taught me a lot of what other families could be going through.

People make the world go around is a true statement. We all need each other in so many different areas of our lives to attain our dreams, goals, and/or destiny. In my household we were taught the art of body massage to increase, stimulate and evenly distribute the circulation in the body. This promotes not only relaxation but strength and tone to the muscles. It also promotes healing. My cultural household also equipped me with skills of honor like patience, gentleness, thoughtfulness, kindness, and empathy. I became a Caregiver because it was already naturally instilled in me by my parents and because my mother became ill and incapacitated and I needed to care for her. There were many things I already knew but there was much more to learn so I decided to go to school to learn greater skills, time management, techniques of bending, turning a patient, bathing, tube feeding, CPR, and wound care. Proud I am of successfully completing my studies with an A. I also possess a degree in Human Services with Public Relations and Supervisory Management. My personality is calm, nurturing, flexible, patient, and I love to learn new things. I have written two books about fruits, veggies and delicious healthy meals and would love to be a Spokes Person/Motivational Speaker. Caregiving is demanding but it is also rewarding as it imparts joy and peace to the sender and the receiver.
