Showing 1-2 of 2 caregivers found
I am responsible, dependable, upbeat, compassionate and have more than 5 years experience as a caregiver. I became a caregiver after a company I was working for went out of business and found that I loved working with elders. I've always enjoyed them and have always been sensitive to their needs and now that I'm a retired person I can really relate to their issues. I gained a lot of experience having cared for my Mother who was quadriplegic, it touched my heart to see her so helpless and to know that she couldn't do anything for herself. However, I was grateful and honored to be there for her. I'd worked for an agency before she became sick and had gained a lot of valuable experience, my previous experience had been in communications. Knowing that you have made a difference in someone's life is very fulfilling and rewarding. I have experience as a home health provider/companion, massage therapist and have worked as a physical therapy aide in Inglewood, and Beverly Hills California. I am president and CEO of a non-profit organization which has done voluntary work in Ghana and Senegal West Africa establishing a health care system in under-served communities. I have received a Medical Certificate from Universite Cheikh Anta Diop de Dakar Senegal, a Scholastic Award, Community Service Award and was an honor student and on the Dean's list at Charles Drew University of Medicine and Science. I have an Associate of Science degree as Medical Assistant.
