I have chosen to be a Caregiver because I would like to have one on one time with my client. I want to take the time to get to know them and give them my undivided attention. I like to give great care and I feel being a caregiver gives me that opportunity. At the end of each day, I love knowing I did everything that I could to help someone else to the best of my abilities. Giving someone else Happiness and Worthiness is my goal.
Hello! My name is Tia. I have been in the caregiving, and healthcare industry for over 15 years. I got into the field by recognizing a need that I could bring to seniors, and it became a passion that I have enjoyed ever since. As the years passed, I wanted to take my skills to the next level. I enrolled in pre-requisites for nursing, and completed my AS with the goal of getting into the nursing program to become an RN/BSN. I am a Certified Nursing Assistant, have current CPR certification and TB clearance. I have extensive Alzheimer's and dementia care experience, as well as hospice and end of life palliative care experience. I have excellent communication skills and work well in utilizing various means of technology to document the care and status of my clients. I recognize the importance of maintaining the safest and most dignified environment possible for people as they enter a time in life when care is necessary, and feel honored to be able to be part of each person's story that I encounter.
I became a care provider at a young age. I have helped provide care to two members of my family. I enjoy being a care provide because being able to help someone and hopefuly put a smile on there face is what makes it worth it. We all need help sometimes. I feel that I am a good care provider beacuse I have a big heart and I enjoy helping other. * I will be starting my CNA training starting in Febuary to help better myself and to be able to provide better care.
It all started with my first nanny job. I was 19 a young mother of 1 and introduced to a family who I still work pt for 16 years later. There were gaps in my employment with them due to changes in all our lives over the years. In the first break I started working as a caregiver in a care home. After a few months I came to the conclusion it just wasn't the environment for me. I tried a few other jobs but I was always drawn to help people. In 2009 I became my grandmother's ft In home caregiver. I then realized others needed help in their homes also. At some points I had 3-4 clients throughout the day. I have done it all...cooking, cleaning, shopping, transportation, errands, appointments, I can even mow the lawn if needed. I have worked my schedule to care for kids early morning hours providing care and transportation. I usually work late mornings and afternoons with seniors. I am honest, reliable, and trustworthy. I care for all my clients as if they were my own family.
I began my caregiving career as a skilled CNA in a nursing home at the Care Center in Oakdale. Once I perfected my skills and with the proper work-methods, I resumed my work ethics at Oak Valley Hospital in the Rehabilitation Center; and was promoted by The Director of Nursing to a RNA position ( Restorative Nursing Assistant) working directly with professionals such as PT, PTA, Speech Specialists, RNs and Doctors. It was my absolute pleasure to see my patients regain their health and return home to loved ones. With my acquired experience and knowledge, great compassion and kindness, I became an independent caregiver and have worked as a private caregiver for over 15 yrs. I love what I do. I have met many wonderful clients and family loved ones; and graciously, I have received many letters of recognition. Through my caregiving process, I have worked diligently along side Hospice, applying my nursing skills to bring comfort to dying patients. My goal is to bring a quality of life to my clients with much joy and with a compassion filled with gentle kindness. Please see letters of recommendation and summaries of some of my caregiving positions below.
The reason I became a caregiver was because my grandmother died alone in a nursing home. I have also worked in facilities. I left due to the fact I didn't like the way the clients were treated I couldn't give them enough attention. The reason why I love working in homes with one or two clients at a time is because you get to know them you get to bond with them and they become like family. 80% of my clients I have stayed with till the end and that is because most of my clients are terminal.

Hello and thank you for wanting to learn more about me. I have been caring for those in need intermittently for over 20 years and find a joy in helping individuals while maintaining their dignity. I have cared for a diverse range of individuals with many different needs ranging from assisting with fall risks to hospice. I started care giving when I was 18. I worked with children and young adults who had severe brain damage or physical disabilities. I then started caring for disabled adults through IHSS and eventually left the industry for many different reasons. I always found my way back, though, to work with those who have special needs, either in the administrative aspect or mentoring. Now, after caring for a dear friend, I have found myself wanting to stay in the care giving business once again. Some things I have experience with include ambulation, transfers, feeding and hygiene care, and expect other duties of a general sense to include light housekeeping and cooking. I have worked with individuals who suffer from Dementia, Alzheimer's, strokes, and MS. I tend to learn habits and preferences through observation and communication and try to anticipate my clients needs. For instance, I had a client who did not like her fingernails dirty and preferred to have her hair curled with a little bit of bangs. When she declined to the point of not being able to communicate anymore, I still made sure her fingernails were clean and her hair was curled just how she liked. I also add cognitive stimulation for clients who have Dementia and Alzheimer's and try to keep them engaged in familiar activities. Essentially, my goal is to be able to give the best care possible for the circumstance. I believe patience, kindness, and empathy are key to being a great caregiver. I am also a believer in allowing a client to do as much for themselves as possible for as long as they can.
