My grandmother worked in this field until her health wouldn't allow it anymore. She loved it, and so did I so I stated working with her. I cared for a woman for almost 9 years, I was her sole caregiver, I enjoy caring for others, its what defines me. I do it in a way that doesn't hurt my patients pride, because I know that losing their mobility and not being able to do for themselves hurts, and depresses them. I always make them feel like they are in control. All I can say is this is what I I've for, this is what makes me happy.
I became a care giver when my father had lung cancer, I lived with him and was his soul caregiver. I also cared for my mother in law that had alzheimer's for eight years. My brother was born with cp and had 21 surgeries over his childhood. We all played apart in his recovery he now has a job at AAA! I have worked at customer Service at Kohl's department store for eight years and enjoy working with the public meeting new people and helping people! I only work one day a week for health benefits. My heart is helping people feel better. Currently working at home instead but looking for one or two clients in my area Taylorsville. back ground check is available upon request
I'm a great Mom....I cared for my mother though her dementia. I began working full time with Alzheimer's and Dementia soon after that. The best sound I hear and actively seek is laughter with joy! I'd would be happy to go back to childcare. I've 9 years of private infant care to 3 year and beyond. Those kids are graduating high school. The best education I'll ever receive is having a little brother that's mentally challenged. He keeps me so positive! I admit I'm a tad jealous of his peace with his world, nothing phases him for long....We have a saying, 'this too shall pass'. Our precious Mom taught us well!
I have been a CNA in Georgia for over 17 years and I have worked in Nursing home, Rehab clinics, In home care, and hospitals. I'm the best of the best when it come to being a caregiver. I have many references and a clean work record. I am committed to making a positive approach in all aspects in my career and I take pride in my work.
I have been a caregiver for over ten years. I absolutely love taking care of people and I believe that if they could most people would choose to stay in their homes and have care but sometimes it's not that easy to do medical problems or other things come into play. I'm 40 yes old and far as I can remember I have taken care of someone so this comes natural to me, I would and am very proud to say that my biggest accomplishment is me receiving my GED in 2012. I didn't get the chance to graduate high school due to family issues but I did go back and get my education.
Hello my name is Sharee Smith. IMA Medical Assistant I am also a Phlebotomist and I am a certified nursing assistant. I love caring for patients This is something that I enjoy doing to be able to help someone and allow a person to feel safe is one thing that I'm very passionate about. I have been a caregiver for 7 years I've worked with mainly patients with Alzheimer's and dementia I have cared for patients with strokes I did a little catheter care but I'm always willing to learn I've work to help people to just get two appointments and I did like housekeeping . I have also worked in a nursing home I've worked in a doctor's office and I've also worked in patients home what we consider home health Care. I'm very proud of myself in the achievements that I have made as far as medical assistant and phlebotomy and in hopes to continue to go higher but one thing that I did realize and learn is one can have the highest education but if they don't have the passion it's pointless my passion is to care too be a helping hand to those in need and also and hopes to make someone feel safe.
I became a caregiver quite by accident. I was laid off of my job and at the same time my brother in law's grandparents had reached a point where they needed help so I started working for them. I went over at 8:30 am and spent the day. Started with breakfast, fixed Ms. Ada's coffee, fed cats, made beds, cleaned house, did laundry, grocery shopping, mowed yard, transportation when needed to go to Doctor or any where they needed to go. I am a very caring and compassionate person who want's to make sure that any elderly person has the best quality of life they can have when they are not quite able to do the everyday things but are still able to stay in they're own home. Paw Paw had to go to a rest home in November 2013 and I would take Ms. Ada to see him 3 times a week. Sadly he passed in May of this year so Ms. Ada went to stay in Florida with her daughter for an extended vacation. In the mean time I still mow they're yard and check on they're house. They have a daughter that lives here and goes by everyday to pick up mail. I am proud of the fact that since I had never thought about being a caregiver I really enjoyed it and everyone in their family told me what a wonderful job I was doing and they were so relieved I came along when I did. I am registered on care.com, you can see my profile and letter of reference there. I think it is very important for anyone to be able to stay in their own home when they become elderly, I think your health stays better, you are most likely no
I love taking care of people and especially ones that can't do all for themselves or don't have family to help. I love this area of work because I have an daughter that was born with special challenges. I am proud of how other people come up to me and express their feelings and happiness in me on how great I am with the elderly.
I began my career in caregiving several years ago when I left my career in nonprofit management to provide FT care for my mother, Julia. She was 75 and dealing with congestive heart failure, COPD, dementia and other chronic medical conditions. After she passed, I began offering care for other families. Presently, I provide companionship care two days a week for a family with two senior adults, one (female, age 88) with mid-stage dementia and the other (male, age 77) with ALS. I also provide companionship care two to three days a week for a senior (female, age 80) with early stage dementia. I also provide PRN (as needed) care for a senior (female, age 94) with late stage dementia. I am very comfortable working with adults experiencing dementia, alzheimers and/or other chronic illnesses. I enjoy building relationships that help keep the adults I care for as happy and healthy as possible while remaining in their own homes. If you feel I may be a good fit for your loved one, I am very interested in learning more about your needs and would be happy to talk with you on the phone or meet with you in person.
