I became a Caregiver in 1998 because i enjoy helping others. I enjoy talking to and listening to the awesome stories that clients tell about their life. You began to get to know one another and build a bond. I am currently CPR and First Aid Certified. I have over 20+ years as a CNA.I am currently in school to finish my degree in Education. I hope that in the future, i will finish my goals and become what i always wanted to be. An Educator
I genuinely care about others, no matter the age. Outside of my wishes of being a medical assistant, I wanted to be a caregiver because I would have one-on-one time with the person. This desire of mine grew as I started working for Clark Lindsey. As a waitress, I get to know the residents to an extent. The reason I joined Synergy (home health care), was to be a companion to residents that may not have that or any type of care as they used to. Knowing that they don't get to see their loved ones as much as they want to, I feel even closer to them because I feel like I can be that person for them-someone who is close to them, cares for them, provides safety, and to really listen and have interest in them. For the client that I currently have as well as others in the past, I learn a lot of life experiences from them and I love to see their eyes light up when they tell me parts of their past as if they are reliving it again and again. Lastly, my personal achievements that I'm proud of happens at Clark Lindsey and with a client I used to have. At Clark Lindsey, when residents would come up to me (when I'm working, or just visiting) telling me that they always enjoy seeing me, always makes my day. Also, recently with a client, I aided in the recovery of one walking again. Even though, I don't see him anymore, I'm happy that he is with his wife and truly happy.
I'm very caring and personable. I look forward in getting my resident better and feeling and looking better. Taking care of my il grandfather at a young age, attracted me to being a caregiver. I enjoy making my resident or the person I'm taking care of smile and happy and just comfortable. I love seeing them progress and grow strong. A Personal Achievement of mine is, I finished High School with my CNA certificate.

I used to care for my grandmother back home. This is my first time applying for a caregiver job here in the United States but I have took a CNA course and did my clinical hours. I am also currently in Nursing School so I have experienced taking care of patients so I do think, I will be a great fit for this job. I love taking care of people and that is the main reason why I decided to go into nursing and also become a caregiver. I am very proud of the fact that I have made it through two semesters of Nursing School, because nursing school is very hard and even though I have thought about giving up so many times I am still pushing through. I enjoying seeing my patients smile. I love when they are happy to see me which makes me feel like I am doing a great job taking care of them. I love seeing my patients get the best care that they need. I am very compassionate, patient, trustworthy, dependable and attentive so I do think this will be a very good fit for me.
People always need to be treated with dignity and respect but particularly so when they are ill or injured. I am an excellent listener and communicator as these are skills necessary to help someone who needs care to be trusting of my abilities. My CPR and first aid certifications expired in Aug. but I would be more than willing to renew these if offered a position. I have been a caregiver previously and performed Phys Therapy exercises, bathing, dressing, cooking, transportation to social events and doctors and hospital testing appointments, cleaning and many other necessities.
Over 6 years of caregiving experience. I really got into homecare after my son was in an accident. While being trained to care for him I decided this was something that I really enjoyed it doing. I spent a lot of my time with great-grandmother in the south and by her being elderly; I learned a lot from her and also assisted her in the kitchen where I took up a love for cooking. I love caring for people and being a companion when needed; making a client as comfortable as possible and providing grooming can really make a difference in how one is able to cope with their day. I don't mind going the extra to make a person feel special, this is just they way that I was raised.
