I have assisted clients with bathing and other personal care needs. I have also prepared meals and performed housekeeping duties on a regular basis. My experience includes Dementia care, along with other serious mental health issues. Several years ago, I attended a Practical Nursing program at a technical school in my hometown.
why i'm a great care giver because I have a heart for it, an a great compassion for caring for people. an when I do something I do it right, I like being a caregiving because I can show my love and caring for others n giving the care and respect that patients deserve. I also want to be a caregiving because I lost my daughter last year and I have a lot of love to give away an when I do a job I do it right. For me its not about the money its the love and respect you give one another.
I consider myself a facilitator of healing and learning, which includes being a caregiver. Helping people to achieve their highest level of functioning is what healing is all about which usually includes the process of clients learning new skills. Having been a nurse for 39 years, I have worked at one time or another in almost every aspect of nursing and health care, including many different settings in hospitals, Long Term Care and in the community in group homes, general home health care and community mental health as well as Utilization Review and Education and training. What I have most enjoyed is being able to integrate some of the more holistic aspects of healing and health care into my everyday positions (eg. Nutrition, Stress Management & Relaxation, CranioSacral Therapy, Therapeutic Touch, Color & Sound therapy, etc.). One of the most successful cases I have worked on was a little 8 y.o. boy who had suffered a severe anoxic brain injury after being in a diabetic coma. When I met him, he was confined to a wheelchair, barely able to move more than a finger on his one hand, was fed through a G-tube, not able to walk or talk and required total care. It required intense dedication from his family, assisted in their home by nursing, PT, OT, Speech and many volunteers, but by the end of my time with him 2 years later through an integrated program utilizing many modalities, he was able to walk with a brace, his speech was much improved, he had started toileting himself and was able to eat by mouth again, GT removed. His vision was still not optimal, but had improved significantly and he was able to start attending school again. That was real healing which I was very proud to be a part of!! I can only hope to have opportunities like that again.

I care about people. I am a people person. I have the client's best interest at heart. I had worked for Transylvania Regional Hospital for nearly 15 years when the economy forced them to lay off 38 of us aides who were "Home Health Aides" out in Transylvania and Henderson counties. I was a prn aide, working an average of 10 to 30 hours per week, depending on the need of TRH. I cared for a variety of patients around both counties. My duties included total patient care, including baths, skin care and monitoring, taking vital signs, monitoring blood sugar, meal preparation, light housekeeping and grocery shopping. I have a reputation of being compassionate, caring, honest and dependable. I would encourage you to call TRH Home Care office for a referral (828-883-5254). I am looking for prn work. As I, also, am a senior citizen and participate in church activities, I choose not to work either Wednesday nights or Sunday mornings. I would be grateful for this consideration in hiring me.
I enjoy helping others. I love being a caregiver to be able to help the ones that cannot do for themselves or just being there to make sure they have what they need. I am very dependable and love what I do. I will go above and beyond for my clients as I would want for myself or my family. N
I have over 6 years of caregiving experience. I have worked in various places like Hospitals, Nursing homes and in home care. From 1999 to 2005 I was a Certified Nursing Assistant and went to a 2 year college to get my Associates degree in nursing, however due to hardships I did not finish and get my degree. I took a break from nursing for over 10 years to pursue a different career in retail Management. I just recently within the past year decided to get back into care giving/nursing.
Hi my name is Chelsea and I'm am 25 years old. What attracted me to be a caregiver is every since I was little I have always loved helping and taking care of people. My mother and grandmother were both CNAs and loved what they did. I went with them sometimes when they went to work and seeing the smiles on their clients faces when they walked in the room made my heart smile and I have loved it every since. I work currently with adults with intellectual, mental and physical disabilities and I absolutely love it.
I am great with people, It is a step towards my future career, I like being able to help people achieve things they cannot achieve on their own, I raised money for a girls only orphanage in Honduras when I was only 12 years old and bought food and medicine for them

I have always been passionate about home health work because it allows seniors to stay in the home they spent their life building. I enjoy doing things out doors, I like to take my patients on walks (it able) around outside, or just to sit and the porch and soak up the sun. I have found in previous patients just that simple act is such a treat to the elderly who are home bound.
