I have become a care giver because of my need to give back. My mother died of cancer when i was seven months old and my grand mother took care of me till my father remarried when I was six years old. She was very affectionate and loving towards me and I have always been fond of older people since. Back home in Sierra Leone I was the grand son who always visited the older family members and did all the chores they could no longer handle. Such as fetch water for their baths, clean their commodes,do their laundry, when i was old enough, help them cook or cook for them. Thus they always helped me out with pocket money. Mostly I like the feeling at the end of the day of having made someone more comfortable and feeling that old age is not a curse. I leave them with the feeling that there is still someone the can trust. I leave them with a smile on there face. It is a good feeling on my part to think that I am dependable even around the less palatable tasks. A personal achievement I am proud off is taking nursing classes at 53 years old and passing the NCLEX boards on the first attempt. I am 53 years old but look and feel like I am 36 years old. I love to dance, cook, clean, jog, ride my bikes and my motor cycle. I also love gardening. I am married with two daughters 22 and 17 respectively. My older daughter graduated from Temple university in in Philadelphia and now works and lives on her own. my younger daughter is in her senior year in high school.
Hello and thank you for your consideration. I am a 27 year old single mother with a handsome 4 year old son who keeps me on my toes. I am a Medical Assistant and I earned my credits at the Everest Institute in Silver Spring, Md. I successfully completed the Medical Assisting program with a 2.0 GPA and graduated from the Everest Institute in November of 2013 proudly receiving my diploma. I was born and raised in Md and I am a caregiver because I love to help those who can't fully help themselves and I love the feeling of knowing that I can help make a difference in someone's life. I come from a very loving and respectful family so I am a very polite and respectful person with an open mind. My aunt owns a couple of nursing homes so I was pulled into the caregiver business by helping her out with the residents at her facility. Working with the residents and building new relationships with them touched my heart in a special way. It's something about the ederly that I love and respect being as though they have been here on earth longer than me and I find them to be wiser and often admire and love hearing their "back in my day" stories. I am very fortunate to still have both of my grandparents so please understand that I would treat your loved ones with the same love and respect that I give to my grandmother and grandfather. I look forward to working with you your loved ones and hope to hear from you soon! :)
