Why I am a great caregiver? I embody the word "care." I believe that I am in this world to be a great caregiver. I cared for six foster children after their mother lost her way and left them to fend for themselves. Their ages ranged from one to seven years old, and they lived with me for seven years. I helped build a home for them, and some of them still reside in that home to this day. As a caregiver, I am very observant and skilled in assisting with the health needs of the care recipient. Caring for others brings me contentment and joy. My profession has taught me how to get along well with many different types of people. the work environment is loaded with a variety of different people with varying personalities. I work well with anyone who delivers what they promise. I have always been able to get along with anyone. It does not matter how difficult some of my co-workers can be, I've always managed to get along with them. I even manage to work well with those whom I do not encounter on a daily basis. In summary, working well with others simply means, having great work ethics, personality, and a passion for delivering what you promise. I have great communication skills and can work with many different types of people of varying personalities and skill levels. I am motivated, disciplined, and focused and I am determined to get my job done well and on time. Changing the way people age, is part of my daily activity.
1) I became a Caregiver because the well being of others concern me. 2) Being a Caregiver gives me the opportunity to help those in need and build never forgetting relationships. I have build strong relationships with all of my past patients and hope to make more. I also love the feeling of knowing that I am needed to help better someones life. 3) One personal achievement that I am proud of was being able to effectively change a particular patients life around. When I first met this particular patient he was a diabetic with high blood pressure, dementia and other illnesses. He was a non active, detached individual who didn't speak much. After working him for a couple of months he changed completely. He was then full of life, and didn't need his insulin and blood pressure pills anymore. From this experience I felt like I've made an irreplaceable bond that'll never be forgotten. 4) I am a very hardworking person with a doggedly determined mindset. I make sure that all aspects of the job are done and that the patient and their family are content at the same time. I am also an understanding, flexible, loving and euphoric person that's strives for a happy work environment.

If there are certain ways that something needs to be done as long as I could be shown or walked through I am willing and able to learn and do. I am capable and able to run errands, prepare meals, engage in activities in the home as well as outside the home. Dress, bath, as well as just making sure that all is taking care of while that person is in my care.

Why are you a caregiver? I love providing home caregiving services to those that would otherwise not be able to do so. The smile on their faces is overwhelming and makes me feel I have done my job right. I have always enjoyed helping people so I know I am doing the right thing. What do you like best about care giving? Meeting new people and providing caregiving services that they can no longer do for themselves. Why do you work with Easy Living? I have worked with many home care agencies, but Easy Living really cares about their clients and workers. I like that they follow up with clients and caregivers to make sure we are all compatible and happy. What you do enjoy most about your job? Meeting different people. Every day can bring on a new challenge and you are constantly learning 4. I get along with people very well. This has made me a team player at all jobs I have had. In my previous employment as a Nursing assistant, I got along well with the public and went out of my way to help both family and friends. I am thrilled to have an opportunity to apply my people skills and caring attitude to a job as a CNA and hope to make all patients feel a little more at home and very well cared for. Having worked two jobs while also completing my CNA training, I know I have the ability to work long hours and multitask without losing my energy or positive attitude.
