I became a care giver because I have a passion for helping people with special needs. Through my past experiences, I have acquired skills and abilities highly relevant to the Caregiver position: • Track record of providing assistance to elderly in activities of daily living • Well versed in motivating clients to enjoy their independence • Committed to perform housekeeping tasks; washing clothes and dishes, scrubbing bathroom and making beds • Focused on tidy living environment for clients through living area sanitation, ventilation, proper lighting and furnishings arrangement • Adept at implementing care plans provided by the care manager and client’s family My caregiving skills coupled with my enthusiasm to help others make me a unique candidate for this exciting opportunity.
I am a reliable caregiver with several years of experience caring for the elderly and vulnerable adults. Posesses an excellent client care ,works well with bedridden,physically challenged and memory-impaired residents. Friendly and compassionate with excellent inter-personal communication skills. Flexible available days, swing shift, weekends and holidays. Discreet and confidential in all dealings with the residents and staffs.
I'm an open-minded, friendly, compassionate woman with personal & professional integrity. Empathy and reliability, patience and the ability to laugh at myself & situations (instead of stewing about them) makes me a great caregiver. The safety of a client is of utmost importance. I've always liked to help the elderly to enrich their lives .
I care about elders and their rights of dignity, privacy, feeling and quality of life. I like to work as a caregiver because we will all be old one day and I want to know how to handle myself when the day arrives. I would like to provide the best personal care with well nutrition meal and leading the elders to a healthy life style and and to achieve that goal eventually. I am very easygoing, my schedule is flexible and pay rate can be negotiated.
My main focus of care for elderly is giving them the attention and love through the care I give them. Their well being is my priority. I am quite adaptable to any environment and because of that I'd like to think I am very friendly. I understand that not everyone is the same so I tend to approach each individual with an open mindset. This is also why I enjoy caregiving because I get to learn from them about life experiences and as they share their wisdoms. The idea that I could be of help to someone, attracted me to this line of work.
I was put into a situation at childhood taking care of my mother with rheumatoid arthritis. Taking care of my dad after college for over 14 years from a major stroke. I know what it is like for the patient and the family. I know what it is like when you loose your dignity having to depend on someone to feed you, dress you, bathe you and still find beauty in life. I am a very caring person and caretaking or elders comes very natural to me. I treat each individual the way I would like to be treated. I left my job 6 years ago with AT&T as a Senior Project Manager to take care of my wife w/cancer and daughter with systemic lupus. I know what it is like being sick and depending on others to get you through the day. I tried to get back to work but having been out of work for 6 years and over 50 its been almost impossible. Lets get real I think its time for a carreer change and doing something I truly am good at and enjoy. Its not about the money but what I enjoy doing...
I am not the kind of caregiver who competes with other caregiver by saying i am the best. In my 15 years of caring for the elderly or seniors, i learned three important virtues that i acquired through the years, these are compassion, patience & most of all love & treating our seniors with dignity & respect. I would described myself as a simple person & faith to God is my strongest point. And for me it is always an honor & privilege to be of service to our seniors & see them blossom on their golden years.
I have chosen my career as a caregiver because I get an enormous amount of satisfaction from helping and caring for others. I have been in the Healthcare field for over ten years and have experienced pretty much every kind of situation plausible in the home health care setting. I am a very empathetic and knowledgeable home care provider and I take great pride in my work.
Why a caregiver it has always been in the family the nourishment and ability to help each other. I enjoy how my clients share their life history it means we have bonded in a personal way he or she is willing to give information that is usually meant for their family. Personal achievement to be proud of there are many I am proud of overcome any difficulties life put on our path. Life is a rollercoaster we all have difficulties that is the ride going up, we have our scary moments those are the turns/twists on a ride and the fun is the flat area toward the end when everything seems to be going our way.

To see them slime always make me satisfied and my objective been accomplished.
I have enjoyed working with the elderly since a young age, as I grew up on a farm with my grandmother. In my late teens, my grandmother developed dementia, and my family and I were fortunate to find wonderful caregivers to provide in-home support. In large part to this experience, I studied Healthcare Inequalities focusing on the stigma of old age. Subsequently, I conducted an ethnographic study of the Gray Panthers, an old-age activist group. I continued this interest into graduate school, where I conducted life history interviews with feminist activists in London to explore the intersection of old age and gender in the London feminist movement.
