I became a caregiver because i simply enjoy taking care of people. I love making people laugh as i feel laughter is the best medicine in this world today. I became a caregiver 25 years ago when I started caring for my handicap cousin. (who is now 37) I enjoyed being with her and teaching even the simpliest things that we may all take for granted. She is blind so I would take her ice skating, sledding, etc, anything for a challenge. To see her feeling of power was enough of a reward for me. I knew I wanted to help people in life so I went to school and became a medical assistant/phlebotomist. The challenges and rewards were endless. I worked in a very busy practice where i was able to utilize the knowledge and compassion i have to take care of people.
1.) I became a caregiver because at a young age my grandmother was diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer. I watched her battle through and eventually she lost the war. On top of the cancer my nana also had a brain tumor, epilepsy, and high blood pressure that needed to be monitored daily. Helping her through her battle and watching her go through her ups and downs gave me the drive I needed to pursue a career in the health field. 2.) What I like mainly about being a caregiver is being able to help others and having success stories. Being able to help others and seeing them be happy even if its for a short period of time makes it well worth it. 3.) A personal achievement that i am proud of is applying and being accepted into a Medical Assistant program. I am proud that not only did I finish the program but i graduated with honors. 4.) Something about myself: I love what I do. The career that I have chosen for myself fulfills me in ways that are indescribable. I love people, I love being able to strike up a conversation about anything to anyone. I am a very family oriented person, my mom has 2 other sisters and my father is 1 of 10 children so family is very important to me. I am the oldest of 3 and have a half sister that is 4. My youngest brother also just had a baby so I have a 9 month old nephew that I couldn't picture life without. I set goals for myself and try my hardest to fulfill the goals i set, whether they're daily, weekly, monthly or yearly goals i try
I have been a Caregiver/Med tech for 4 years. I really find working with Elderly enjoyable. I'm also a Certified Medical Asst. I'm very experienced with cooking and create healthy meals. In addition, I started a garden at my last job for the 6 ladies I was honored to spend time with. I think we all could learn from our elders, they have so much to give to us. Thank you for your time and consideration.Gina
