Hello, my name is Maria, I am 44 years old. I recently moved to Illinois from California and am looking forward to continuing to care for a person in need. I've been providing care for the elderly for about 3 years. My first experience was caring for my 88 year old grandmothers everyday needs. I helped with feeding, bathing, medications, light housekeeping and was there for companionship. I also cared for an elderly couple, 24 hours a day 5 days a week, for 7 months in 2017. I helped with meal preparation, transportation, light housekeeping, medication reminders and was there for companionship, and anything else that arose. Currently I am working with several clients, but am looking for something more permanent. Being a caregiver gives me the satisfaction of knowing I am making someone's life easy and comfortable. I am proud of successfully raising my three children whom are loving, caring, and respectful, which I think is a reflection on my character. I am looking forward to working with a loving family, and assure you that I will care for your loved one as if they were my own. I am available Monday-Friday and am hoping to continue providing assistance to a person in need.
I love what I do to help the people that I take care of. I know that it sadden a person to know that they can't do all the things that they are use to doing for they self. And if I can just make that person feel good about their self and put a smile on their face it really makes me happy to know I can make them happy and feel loved. I know that this is a very trying job, but I have learned in the six years of doing this that patience is the key. And I like to treat everyone how I would want someone to treat my loved one or me need the of help.

I have beena medical assistant for 9 years - became a caregiver about 8 years ago after my grandmother who was diagnosed with Alzheimer's. After caring for her I got a job at an assisted living facility for memory care. I fell in love even more with the field. I took care of 28 residents and loved everyone of them. I truly have a passion for taking care of people. I then started working for an agency with home health to where I started to take care of loved ones inside the comfort of their own home and this was exactly what I wanted. They were inside their own element and comfortable rather than being inside a facility. I then loved this field even more because I was working one on one with Alzheimer/Dementia patients. I would assist them with their daily medications, bathing, light house cleaning, meal preps, grocery shop, doctor appointments, activities. I made sure they kept their minds busy and most importantly comfortable.

Hi! My name is Kerry, I have over 18 years of experience in healthcare with over 10 of them helping the elderly, disabled, those with dementia & on hospice care. I love to just make my patients lives, day or hour better, easier & happier for them, especially considering when it is not possible for them to be without care & support, & living an independent life on their own anymore. The people I care for are more than just my clients, they become my friends & extended family! I think of how I would want someone to take care of my own parents, & that's how I take care of my clients. Treat people how you would like to be treated is my motto! I love to talk with my clients, listen to their stories, & learn about their lives & what makes them who they are! I'm a CNA (certified nursing assistant), caregiver & a former nursing student (which has given me great training in vitals, medication management, skin & wound care, health assessments without the client even knowing that that's what I'm doing, & I'm extremely comfortable taking them to the doctor appointments to take notes & talk with the staff as needed). And through my past work experience, I've been fingerprinted & have had consistent clear background checks & I've even been checked & cleared through the rigorous scrutiny of DCFS & DHS! I also have a resume, reference list & reference letters readily available upon request! I look forward to getting to know you & your loved one!

Hi, my name is Ashley and I am currently seeking any kind of work in the medical field. I have my medical assistant diploma with a lot of experience. I did work in general medicine. I also worked for a lady with ALS for two years. She recently passed away in June. It was really hard because I became super attached to her. I was the head home caregiver which included a lot of responsibilities. I was in charge of making all her home care appointments for all types of her special doctors such ad wound care, physical therapy, regular doctors visits, respitory therapist and so on. I was in charge of her medications which she was on a lot. She was also on a trach because she was unable to breathe on her own as well as being on a feeding tube.I would also change her, wash her up and just in general did whatever she would do for herself on a regular basis that she was no longer able to do on her own. I worked 6 days a week. Not because of the pay because I can make money at any job but because I know I made a difference in her day just lime she made a difference in mine. I am very responsible and reliable.
