I am a great caregiver because I treat my clients as if they were family. I became a caregiver because I find myself taking care of people all the time. I love being able to help people feel great about themselves in any situation. I like being able to comfort, calm, and bring a smile to people as they go through the stages of their lives. Sometimes it just takes conversation, a touch, or just cheering them on. I have been a medical assistant in the past and it makes it much easier to understand the correct ways to assist people. I have been a caregiver through a company here in Tucson since 2014 and have experience providing those who need companionship, light housekeeping, medication management, care for pets, and much more. I am quite good at getting along with people and making new friends (I consider my clients friends). My clients tend to grow to like and trust me very quickly. I like being around them because they teach me new things.
I have had my Certified Caregiving and Certified Nurse Assistant (and PCT) License for two years now. I am currently working at St.Joseph's hospital as a Patient Care Technician in the Medical/Psychiatric unit Night Shifts but began gaining experience in caregiving, assisted living, and rehabilitation centers. I have a passion to strive for the care and needs of others as if they are apart of my own family. I also strive to develop trust with not only the patient but the family to always ensure excellent care and respect.
I love my job and I have been a caregiver for over 10 years. I have experience taking care of Alzhemiers and Parkinson's patients, as well as those with dementia and the frail and elderly. I have more training than a CNA and also have certifates of training including QMAP ( Medication Management training), First Aide and CPR. I am patient, kind and treat my clients the way I would like to be treated. I became a caregiver because I am a people person and enjoy being around seniors and hearing their stories as well as helping them to have to best life possible. Each of my clients have different personalities and like to do different things. Some things I have done for and with my clients are, preparing meals, bathing, dressing, laundry, shopping and errands. I have also provided transportation to Doctors appointments and assisted them and their families with understanding the Doctors instructions. Some fun things we have done together are, watch TV, go to museums, the Zoo, movies, out to eat, go for a drive, play games, go for a walk or just sit and talk. An achievement I am very proud of is being a previous Owner /Operator of an Assisted Living Home. I have excellent referiences.
People say that when you love what you do it shows. Well, it shows in how I care for my clients. I have loved every client; I have ever cared for, that is what makes me a great caregiver. I have a friend that believed that I would be a great caregiver. She hired me; I worked day shifts and learned a lot about care giving with my first client. I believe that care giving chose me, I am thankful it did. I am now a certified home health aide with over 6 years of experience. I am a kind, trustworthy caregiver with a very diverse skill set. I have decided to go back to college to pursue becoming a Registered Nurse. I am currently on the waiting list at Pima Community College. There is so much to love about working with seniors, I enjoy helping people live with quality and dignity. It is important to share my joy and bring brightness to my clients’ everyday lives. When clients have a medical set back or surgery it gives me joy help them regain some or most all of what they lost. That is one of the most rewarding feelings. My clients are wise, I have learned much from them. Each client holds a special place is my heart, I carry them with me wherever I go. I believe "Happy is the home with a full cookie jar.” therefore, I enjoy baking cookies and live life with zest. A few of my many talents are my organizational skills and positive get it done attitude. I hope to get to know you and work with your family!

I love working as caregiver/medical field because I have so much love and compassion for people that is how I suceed in what I do. I realize there is some many rewards and gifts in this line of work. What I enjoy the most is meeting people and hearing about their life and experiences they have live, because everybody always has a unique story to tell. The joy you bring to their lives and the appreciation they feel. The most personal achievement I am most proud of was opening my own successful Adult Assisted living for 4 mental ill adults at 24 years old and having no idea how to run a business. I was well known in the community and was respected by the licensing committee for my excellent work. I kepted that Assisted Living open for almost 10 years. Having that business was where my passion was for caring for people. It taught me how to advocate for people that were not capable of advocating for themselves. I was their voice and that is how I was able to earn respect with people I worked with. Today is why I am so thankful and I am able to soar in my work today.
My caregiving started with my elderly parents who spent six months a year with me in Tucson. My mother had been diagnosed with dementia. They spent eleven winters with me and the summers near my brothers in Minnesota. Seven years ago a close friend asked me to be with her father while she was at work. He also had dementia and could no longer be at home alone at all. His daughters working schedule was ten to fourteen hour days four days each week. I would go to her home before she left for work. I would administer his medications, fix his meals, shower with him (I was in shorts and a tee shirt) shave and supervise teeth brushing and dressing. Some days I would take him to a day program for a few hours and then bring him to my home until his daughter picked him up when she was done working. As he declined I needed to be with him every minute to keep him from wandering off or going to the bathroom in the proper place, etc. I took care of him for over four years. My most recent care experience was with an elderly couple. I had been referred to their daughter by a mutual friend. Her mother had been diagnosed with dementia and the family wanted to keep their parents in their own home as long as possible. Their Mother had been ill and had lost a great deal of weight. I really needed to concentrate on how to get her to eat. I won by serving healthy, attractive meals and distracting her with conversation while she ate. She gained twenty pounds in two years.
I have always loved working with people, especially elders. I started working in assisted living while I was in massage therapy school and after a break for a few years, I went back to school for my nurse aide certificate and license. I have been privileged to work with people and elders of all backgrounds and health issues. I am trained in basic life support, including infant and adult CPR, and currently working toward my nursing degree.
Hello there! Thank your for taking the time to read a little bit about myself. I understand how overwhelming it could be for you and your family at this point. I also understand the emotional rollercoaster you all are enduring at this point trying to find the right fit for your loved one. Are you choosing the right person? Are they trustworthy? Are they reliable? I get it. The transition in itself is hard to accept at times. One minute everything is running smoothly, and the next, you are having to scramble and find help but don't know where to start, don't know if you're doing the right thing. You will read how many yrs one has been caregiving, how much experience they have. Is it all true? Or are they just making themselves look good so you can pick that one person. One can have all the experience in the world, but have no compassion. I can sit here and tell you how much experience I have and that I've been a CNA for 22 yrs. And I can also tell you that this has been my passion. But how will you know? Honestly, yes, it's great to know that some of us are telling you the truth about our background. That's what's scary about all this. Having that one, or few, that are actually compassionate about what they do and experience they have. The only way you will know is by meeting them, whether it be in person, or over the phone. Anyone one that is compassionate about their career choice, will stand out by the way they talk about what they do for a living. You will hear the sincerity in their voice and their smile. Picking the right one (ones) will also make it easy to transition into your new chapter. I know a "bio" is supposed to be about me, but I just felt I needed to give you some advice on all of this. Take care and good luck!
I love helping people. I am very compassionate to those I serve. I have been a caregiver for over 30 years. I completed my Nurse Assistant Training in 1989. It takes a special person to be a Caregiver. It is essential to be patient and kind, dependable, knowledgeable and SKILLED. It is also necessary to be creative when issues arrive. CPR and First Aid must be required; I have both the skills and certification. I handle emergencies calmly, efficiently, and professionally. Having a sense of humor is also a plus! I also enjoy learning about my clients ie, where they were born, where they spent their childhood or went to school, their first job, etc. It gives me great joy to be a Caregiver, my true calling! In my spare time, I enjoy hiking, fly fishing, camping, and exploring. I love to read and visit my local county libraries often. I own a cat and have owned dogs. Growing up in Oregon, I was involved in 4H and FFA and Girl Scouts. I love animals, growing flowers, rock hounding, buying art, attending plays and concerts, and visiting museums.
Reliable compassionate knowledgeable are my expertise that help me be better to my patients. My mission is preserving and improving the quality of life of the people I serve. I decided to become a caregiver to make a difference in people's life. I enjoy the most being a helping hand to the most vulnerable and getting to know their stories. I am proud to say I have the privilege to take care of prestige clients.
