I started out my journey in the healthcare field because of my sick mother. I was amazed at how at ease she was having people come into her home and help her with things so that she could remain at home. I decided then that I wanted to help people be able to stay in their home and live a normal life.

Growing up my family worked and managed a nursing home, this started my connection with caregiving. By my early teen years I started to take care of my grandparents and some of their frineds so this has continued throughout my life into my mid 20's. Now I live in a whole new state and miss that connection greatly. I enjoy talking, helping, and getting to know all who I encounter. I'm verying caring and determined when it comes to the people I bring into my life. This isn't just a job it's something that I truly love doing.
I have been a paralegal for over 25 years. At the time of my aunt's illness, I was unemployed and able to take care of her 24/7. When I worked for Mrs. Margentino, it was on a part time basis. I also lived with and took care of my mother for 30 years, taking her to doctors, administering her medicine, shopping and light housekeeping, and preparing home cooked breakfast, lunch and dinner until she passed away in 2015. I also taught adult education coursed part time at an Adult High School for 20 years. This included counseling between parent and their children from time to time.
1. What makes me like a great caregiver is that I treat my patient like my own family, I always to my mind that taking my patient is like I'm also taking care of my family 2. I love doing caregiving because it is my passion to take care of them, love them and give them the needs they needed, 3. I enjoyed most being caregiver is that being able to handle the behavior your patient is giving to you and yet you find your self it is very interesting and you still love your patient. It's like loving them with out asking for return to love you back 4. Personal achievement I am proud of is that I was able to stay calm in times of emergency when my patient oxygen sat went down to 52%, when shes having difficulty in breathing, she became cyanotic or become blue and I was doing a back percussion to her, her breathing went back to normal, (Ps. She had most form so I couldn't able to do CPr- that's why back percussion was applied)
Ever since a little girl, I have always had a passion working with the elders. I have been working as a certified nurse assistant for roughly 6. 5 months where I had the amazing opportunity to make a difference. Previously working in a skilled nursing and rehabilitation center, I have learned many skills and tasks. I have experience with all ADL's; personal care, transferring, ambulatory and many more. I have experience with dementia and Alzheimer's, catheters, feeding tubes I have recently started working as a home health aid. I'm willing to do light house cleaning along with meal preparation. My experience in in home care has been the most rewarding as it allows the senior to remain in their own home. I have very compassionate and I enjoy working with elders
Honestly, I moved in during the last year leading up to my grandfathers death. He had many issues and heath problems and i helped with everything i could. I administered his meds, emptied his stoma for his colostomy, set up his food & water (kangaroo pump). Laundry, and anything else he needed. I recently moved away from my home town (las vegas) and Im missing him so much. I would love to help out a family that needs someone who's been in their shoes & knows the difficulties of finding quality people to look after their loved ones, and i promise you- I am that girl! Thank you
Three years ago I lost my mother to cancer and took total care of her during her two years of fighting this disease. A few months ago a dear friend asked me if I would like to assist this gentlemen because she knew how I cared for my mother. That is how I treat this gentlemen, just like he is my family. I truly enjoy helping others. I'm free every evening if you need to go to dinner or go to an event and currently I work all weekends with this elderly gentleman. If you need help please contact me.

I became a caregiver because I wanted to help make a difference in quality of life for those that needed help. I find it very rewarding when I know I am able to emotionally and physically support someone that is not able to do things on their own whether it be to help wash, dress, assist to medical appointments, shopping cleaning or just providing companionship. I began as a direct care support staff 13 years ago for Jefferson Rehabilitation Center in Watertown, NY. In 2004 I moved to Massachusettes and became Direct Care Staff for Turning Point located in Newburyport Ma. for 3 years. I have been doing private home care for a 90 yr old woman for the last 7+ years during which time I acquired my CNA certification and more recently I completed a Hospice course in October of this year.
