What makes me a great caregiver is that I am very enthusiastic to help, very sweet loving kind compassionate. I've had family members on hospice before and I feel as though they weren't treated as good as I could have treated them if I was old enough to take part in that position. So my life goal is to always feel and give the feelin i've had family members I have been on hospice and I feel as though they weren't treated as good as I could have treated them if I was old enough to take part in that position. So my life goal is to always feel and give the feeling I am a part of your family and you are a part of mine. What attracted me to becoming a caretaker is as I've said a couple of my family members have been on hospice and in nursing homes and I just feel like I could've done a much better try at helping them and making them the most comfortable in the positions they were in. I enjoy loving people and talking to people I enjoy making conversation with my Residence, I like getting to know you as much as I possibly can. I'm a very loving Christian who knows how to treat someone how their family members would love them to be treated. My achievement in goal in life is to become a doctor's assistant. And starting as a caretaker to a CNA two LPNs to a registered nurse to a doctors assistant is my goal in life
I am compassionate and caring. I have learned to listen and read eye and body movement from clients. I took care of one client that didn't have any family and the reward of keeping her company and making her comfortable made me happy as well as the client. The smiles on their faces and there family faces of relief is enough for me. The case that i'm proud of is that one client had surgery on both her knees and couldn't walk her dog that was sick as well with digestive problems. He had to be walked several times a day and she said he waits for me at the door every morning. He normally always stays by her side. She said he has never done that before and that he must really like and sense the care and love in me. That made my mornings seeing him sitting by the front door.
I became a caregiver because I believe it is in my nature and I am compassionate about helping others. I like being a caregiver because no matter how hard I may work or how my day is going, it doesn't feel like work. I would like to help others by doing what I like. I am a mother of four, very energetic and friendly. I recently left my position full time for a major dialysis company in downtown Baltimore and have been in healthcare for a while and started working for Catholic Charities in May 2017, part time on the weekends. I am hoping to start nursing school fall 2017 and would prefer to work overnight Monday thru Wednesday or Thursday but I have open availability and flexibility with my schedule. My personal achievements that I'm honestly most proud of are my children. I am a Certified Nursing Assitant and Cettified Medication Technician through the Maryland Board of Nursing. I am also CPR and First Aid certified.
