I would be a great caregiver because I worked and love my elderly people.. Without them I wouldn't be where I am now. I moved here in NC to help take care of my grandma when I was 12. I've learned lots of things from my grandma..Took care of her til she was 101 years old. My mom and sisters all are in the nursing field and that's what attracted me to being a care giver. The most I enjoy being a caregiver is meeting new people, talking to them and most of all getting to listen to all the stories they lived when they was little. A kind smile or a pat on your back of a job well done.. Not to mention when they ask you Are you coming back ? Is a stamp of approval for me that it was a very good day and a job well done.
I'm very compassionate toward the elderly. They make me feel needed when I am taking care of them. My mother needed help as her sickness progressed and I knew then that I had to be her caregiver. Their wonderful stories from the past! And the companionship! To have the family and elder to love me as one of their own!!

Their needs come first. I am prompt and and very honest. I have handled money in the past as well. I like learning about the clients. their ways, their habits, what they enjoy, what they do not enjoy, just getting to know them as well. I think my greatest achievement is getting the clients to trust me in my care and that I'm there to help them in any way.

One piece of my life that I've always been proud of is back in elementary school when I helped this one student who had spina bifida, use a walker, and wheel chair most of the time. I was their to open doors, move chairs, get things when needed, or help them out when they were tired. Over time it was recognized then was nominated for the Service Above Self Awards.

What makes me a capable, compassionate and trusted care giver is my background and experience in both psychology and Social Work. My advanced education, internships and former career as a clinical Social Worker are valuable assests. I bring a unique perspective to the role of caregiver. I have experience working with clients with a diagnosis of dementia. I decided to end my career path as a Clinical Social worker to care for my own aging parents with their own complicated health issues. As a therapist I worked with many elderly clients concerning the important need for both independence and assistance throughout the aging process. It was both and honor and a privilege to forge strong clinical, theraputic relationships with them. As far as my personality I am an outgoing, talkative listener. This means that I love to chat but love to listen just as much. I feel very comfortable in social situations and meeting new people. And I love to cook! My proudest achievement was attending graduate school and holding down a full-time job for much of the duration. I graduated with a 3.93. I was a tenacious and dedicated student. I am no longer a licensed Social Worker but I am looking for the opportunity to help others, especially elders. I believe that my education and professional experience make me a strong candidate for a role as a caregiver.
