I'm a great caregiver, because of my compassion for people, especially senior care, developmentally disabled, those who can't speak for themselves, both verbally or non-verbally, being a voice. I've always been attracted to caregiving from a young child. Since caring for both parents, and family members. I enjoy being a part of helping others have a quality of life, through love, care and spiritual enlightenment that they otherwise may not have access to. It is a blessing to help others have an extended quality of life, that may not have otherwise been realized.
I like helping people I enjoy spending time with people who been around longer I learn from them. We laugh and take walks just spend time. I have over 15 years experience in health car I presently taking Nutrition health Science,I can help people. Light meals, light house keeping and assist with shower if needed
Like a lot of people who are caregivers I started out taking care of a loved one, who was suffering from Lupus and Heart Disease. She was a retired nurse who was full of knowledge and more than happy to pass it on to me during the ten years I took care of her. I found that not only was I a very good caregiver but that I actually enjoyed it and found it very fulfilling! I think one of the most important things I learned while caring for seniors is that even though they may need help with many different things, some of which are very personal, they are still an adult not a child. I've found people appreciate that, I know I would if the situation was reversed. My second ten years in this business have been helping wonderful people who have found themselves in need of quality care. Their conditions have included Diabetes, Parkinson, Strokes, Dementia and Alzheimer's and other ailments. Some have just needed a little help and companionship. I was very happy that I could be there for them and make a difference in their day with whatever level of care they needed, and to help the family feel confident that their loved one had someone competent and caring to depend on. I have many hand written references that I have received over the years that I can share with you in person.
What makes me a great caregiver is how I treat people with the respect and love they deserve. What attracted me to being a caregiver is my mom, i watched other people take care of her so I wanted to give the same love back to others who are in need. What I mostly enjoy about being a caregiver is helping people. A personal achievement I am proud of is how many people I've helped in my lifetime with my caregiving career:)

I have a very outgoing personality that lends me well to be fun and helpful for folks at home that need assistance. I am tall and strong and this gives families and their loved ones the confidence to have me help their loved one around the house and help them with the daily activities. I am an artist and musician for life and these passions of mine have always been a shining beam of light for those struggling at home. It lends to great conversations and encouraging relationships.
I'm a very easy person to get alone with very responsible reliable hardworking and willing . Those who unable to help themselves attach me to being a caregiver and personal reasons as well. Helping those can't help themselves or no family to talk to . Personal achievement I'm proud of is my hard work and making a difference in people's lives.
I am currently a college student going into my third year at GVSU and I am studying to become a Nurse Practitioner. With my experience working in a nursing home, I have a great outlook on how to treat people of all different walks of life. It is important that your loved ones are treated with compassion and the upmost respect for whatever assistance they may need. I, personally, know how tricky it can be to find the right care giver, which is what gives me the passion to be the best possible caregiver I can be.
Hello, My name is Benta Russell. I began my personal-care career with Synod Residential Service, in August 2013. I have always done personal-care work since I was a young girl. Growing up in Kenya, it was my responsibility to care for my family's elderly. Every day I would take care of my grandparents by fetching them water from the river, cooking their meals. I also did their laundry, cleaned their dishes, and house. One of the many things I have learned throughout the years is that it is very important to be patient and understanding when providing aid to an individual. All the people I have helped have had different strengths and weaknesses, and as the personal-aide, it was my responsibility to understand this in order to adapt to the individual's needs. What I enjoy most about being a caregiver is developing a relationship with the client. As the relationship grows it becomes more than a job and is like finding a new friend. This is important to me because it makes the work that much more enjoyable for both the client and myself. My greatest achievement so far was getting my degree from Washtenaw Community College. There were many days and nights when I wanted to throw my textbooks in the garbage and walk away from school, but I didn't do that. I stuck it through to the end and am very proud to have earned my degree.
I believe what makes me a great caregiver is my ability to empathize with others. Everyone always tells me that I have a very big heart and it's true, I care about other people and I want to help them while making them happy. I am a very outgoing person and love to talk and listen to other people. I was first interested in being a caregiver when I was in the hospital for a double jaw surgery. During this time, I could not open my mouth for 8 weeks and I depended on other people to care for me as I could not. I feel this experience helps me become a better caregiver because I know how it feels to be on the opposite side of the caring. I like for my patients to feel as independent as possible because I didn't like the feeling of being helpless and not being able to do things on my own. What I enjoy most about being a caregiver is all the people I meet and being able to share different life experiences and relate to others. I love being able to make connections with people and be able to make someone's day. Personally, I am proud to have just became a level 2 caregiver and all the new tasks I have learned. More about me is that I love art, I paint and draw and create projects all the time. Pinterest is my favorite place to generate new ideas and things to do with my patients. I love dogs, I have a one year old puppy at home. I also love to travel and experience new places all the time and taste new food which is why I also love to cook and bake new recipes all the time. Currently. I am attending Eastern Michigan University and plan to graduate as a Recreational Therapist next Summer 2019.
I am a great caregiver, because I am a God fearing Christian who believes that Jesus Christ died for us all and he loves us all. also because I love and am full of passion for my career, it is the most rewarding career in the workforce. I get my reward from taking care of people by helping them brighten up their day as well as assisting them with all the help they need. to see the smiles on my client's faces brings me great joy to know that I have been the one to cause that beautiful smile. I believe in the in do onto others as you want to be done onto yourself. one day I will be an elderly women and would need someone too help me. I always remind myself the word of God "you reap what you sew" I also have a lot of experience in the Caregiving field. 4 years and 1/2
I have been in the field for over 10+ years now. I enjoy helping other with the care that they need, I mostly enjoy the companionship and the stories that I am told. I have achieved multiple goals in my life and one of them was being able to take care of my great grandmother. Taking care of my grandmother at a very young age, I felt the need to expand my services to others. Iam a very kind hearted person, I have a big heart, fun and a reliable person. I treat my client like family.
