I have been working as a Licensed CNA over 20+ yrs , when taking care of my residence i look at them as my family member, meaning i would give them good quality care show them love and respect with dignity, what attracted me to being a caregiver i have watched my family member with dementia and my aunt needed a break because it can become overwhelming at times. I enjoy making my residents happy and comfortable, i have achieved a lot by going to school for mental health and doing medical assistance, ,
I enjoy helping and taking care of people who need it. I love listening to the wisdom of my elders! I also just love bringing happiness and some sunshine into someone's life! I have been a Medical Assistant for 28 years, for 18 of those years I worked in 2 different Urology offices, 5 working in an ENT and Allergy office. I am currently working in a Family Practice office. I have enjoyed working in each office and established a great rapport with the majority of the patients I have encountered, as well as there respect and gratitude. I also worked in Home Health for a brief period. One of my clients hired me to continue taking care of her mother, which was extremely gratifying to know she was so pleased with the care I provided and trusted me to continue taking care of her mother.
Being a single mother of two I did what I had to to raise my girls. Managing a restaurant was hard work and long hours. I didn't start doing what I wanted to until after they had left home. I've always felt a need to help others, even when I couldn't help myself . I'm compassionate , caring, patient, empathetic, and understanding of how certain diseases affect the patient. Not all stroke victims, Alzheimer's or disabled patients are the same. I work with people based on their personality and their specific needs. I was raised to treat people like I want to be treated and that's how I try to live my life

I have extensive experience caring for seniors and I am passionate about taking care of others. I cared for my blind, 80-years-old mother-in –law in Mongolia for 3 months in 2012. In addition to be a blind she has diabetes, high blood pressure and problem with walking. She had a lot of needs in her daily life but it was my pleasure to care for her because I deeply love her. From April to June 2013, I took care of woman who had a car accident in the USA. She was bedridden for three weeks and used a wheelchair afterwards. I helped her take her medications, took care of her hygiene needs, did her laundry, dressed her, cooked and helped her eat, took her out for walks and took care of her other needs until her condition improved. For about 8 months from July 2013 to March 2014, I worked as a caregiver to an 81- year-old lady. She had numerous health issues, including high blood pressure, glaucoma and diabetes. On a daily basis, I took her out for walks, cooked for her, and maintained her home in a good condition. I read to her, became a close friend and helped her stop feeling lonely. I applied her makeup, did her hair, dressed her, bathed her and helped her take her medicines always on time. I am spiritual, positive person and enjoy meditation. I love children, elderly, pets and nature. I personally feel fulfilled when I help others and care for them.
I have been a C.N.A. for now 2 years. I love what I do. My great grandma is who inspired me to be who I am today i took care of my great grandma for 5years she passed away 2years ago that's when I decided to do something i enjoyed doing. I wish I would have done the schooling when she was alive so I could have took better care of her i had no idea how to take care of prevent bed sores. No knowledge at all on bed sores.. But I did i know she would be proud of me. I treat my patients as if I'm taking care of my mom or grandma. I treat others how I want to be treated. I am good at what I do i do not mind working weekends or nights i am up for any shift. I work hard and always on time.
As a highly competent caregiver companion, I bring a service- focused and hardworking attitude to this role. I maintain an efficient and organized work mentality as I assist in the care of several geriatric and chronically ill patients. I have an instinct for problem solving and work well independently and with little oversight. I am compassionate, outgoing, resourceful, and believe that trust and honesty are key when in a caregivers role. I was attracted to care giving due to my need of wanting to help people. What I enjoy the most is building a bond and being apart of the recovery process. My biggest achievement in care giving was being able to help my mom over a period of two years recover from her Ru in y Gastric bypass surgery. Prior to her surgery she had diabetes and kidney disease for 3 years and didn't think she would make it to the age of 40. After her surgery I was apart of the recovery process and seeing her healthy and free of diabetes and kidney disease has been the best experience and biggest accomplishment in my life. Therefore I want to continue and help others because its what I truly love to do.
I'm a great caregiver because I'm compassionate about helping the elderly and disabled to have a better quality of life .Knowing that growing older for some can be challenge but having someone to help you get through those diffulcult times by making day to day life easier can make a big difference.It gives me joy to be a part of making someones life better.
I became a caregiver, because I always wonted to help people. The most gratifying feeling to me is the helping someone that can't do for themselves, and to feel appreciated. My grandmother passed when I as 18 and I loved her dearly, I have always had a soft spot for the elderly and handicapped. This is my way of giving back. my personal achievement is getting my CNA, phlebotomy training, and CPR. I have a lot of experience in the medical field, I have worked in Rehabs ,surgery centers, hospitals, and private duty. have over 19yrs. experience.
