I love the Senior Community and truly feel they are so deserving of love and respect! It gives me joy to be their companion and champion to uplift them and allow them to feel safe and and pride intact. I have a great memory of one of my clients "Dorothy" who didn't have a lot of confidence in herself and wasn't steady in her walk so she never went out. Her family had rented a wheelchair for me so I could temp her to get out... long story short is we went out whenever weather allowed and by the time of my departure and her moving to another state , we cruised all over town laughing and packed picnic lunches and her whole demeanor changed and my heart swelled ! I still keep in touch with her today and at 97 she still remembers me and says she looks forward to my calls! I have a lot of love for my clients and their happiness means everything to me!
I became a caregiver to help my mother after she had gastric bypass surgery, which lead to knee replacement surgery. I did general cleaning, shopping, meal prep, and some physica therapy. As her recover was coming to an end I went to look for a new client and met a quadriplegic gentleman. This is when I learned that caregiving was my calling. Within a year of joining the team, I was able to provide solo 24 hour care. My family moved onto his property to be live in caregivers. We have just recently moved from Washington state to Nevada, and I would love to find another client to connect with and help improve there daily life. Outside of family, nothing is rewarding than seeing a clients life improve. Even if in the smallest of ways. I am a huge believer in laughter and happiness being a major factor in health and wellness.
When I was at my last year in High School I already new that I wanted to pursue a career in Health Care or medical field that's why I decided to take up Bachelor of Science in Nursing and graduated with a degree. It is also the time when I was taking care of my father who suffered a 4th stroke that lead him to be paralyzed for several years. When I did get a chance to migrate to US that's when I decided to worked as Health Care Professional and took up some classes to be certified. As to my first job I worked as a caregiver in one of the Developmental Disability Boarding Care Level 4- I in Montclair, for 7 years. Then I did a private caregiving to several one on one clients as of today for about 2 1/2 years already , performing duties such as providing personal care, driving, marketing, meal preparations and et.al. I'm very familiar with Home Health and Hospice Care as well. I can say that this is really my passion and being an advocate to someone is priceless. Receiving personal overwhelming messages from friends, relatives and family members of my resident is one that makes me feel good and encouraged me to study to be able to perform more effective with my care.

I am proud of the service that I render as a care giver because am helping those that are unable to do their own stuff. Am always answerable
I'm a very careing and loving person for children & seniors I'm always wanting to help others in need , I'm hoping to further my career in child care in the near future. I enjoy caregiving because having a successful career in this aged care industry involves finding enjoyment in helping our most vulnerable, elderly community and feeling inspired by your decision to work in this industry. If compassion and enjoyment don't come easily when caring for the elderly, then being a PCA may not be the right choice for you. This doesn't mean that every part of the job should feel like pure joy there are some activities that are even unpleasant, but it's about appreciating the fact that you are making a bigger difference, knowing that you are doing something for others that is improving their quality of life.
Always on time and very reliable. Communicating with each other is the best. Caring and being kind. Will help out in the house, doing housekeeping, laundry, etc... Administer with medication as per order. I make sure that my work will make my patient smile . It's not all about the money it's what you make every client happy.
Being that I am a natural nurture, caring for others came naturally to me. I have a high tolerance of patience, I am very compassionate, timely, respectable, active listener and reliable. After caring for the elderly and disabled for these last 7 years I have gain a passion for caregiving. I love knowing that my energy fulfills the room while caring for my clients and that I am able to build long lasting relationships.
I've been caregiving starting with my mother around 1995 through to her death in October 2010. I was an only child so I did everything for her or with her. Shopping, cleaning, activities, finances, bills, calling people to keep everything going right etc. Then I continued being a home health aide by getting training and working at Flushing House, where I had put my mom till her demise. I took care of numerous seniors - cleaning, bathing, dressing, escorting to activities, med reminders and anything else they needed. I now live in Las Vegas and would like to do the same here on a part time basis only. I do not drive and take buses regularly. Thank you.
