I want to become a caregiver, because I love helping people putting a smile on their faces. Last year my father had a stroke. I took care of him. Washing his clothes, make sure he took his medication. Take him what every he need to go. I'll cook for him. Made sure he had a smile on his face. That's why I enjoyed helping him.. I'm fun outgoing person, nice and always respectful. Do what I am told. Do everything to my best abilities..
I kinda always was a caregiver and didn't know it. Both of my parents worked and I was much older than my step brother and sister, so I did all the house work and taking care of them from an early age. I also grew up with my aunt who was a spastic quadriplegic, so I learned how to do a lot there. I have had many patients, most were the ones everyone else had bad trouble with. I'm kinda the guy, that I can handle pretty much anything from full Dementia, to full quadriplegic. I have my state license in CNA, ACNA, and Phlebotomy. I have excellent experience and very good references. The last question that I am proud of is: My mother was passing in the hospital and couldn't have her placed in a home. So I brought her home with me and kept her alive for another month before she passed away with me. At the end she had full blown dementia, it was quite an ordeal to go through. So with that experience it has taught me a lot of what other families could be going through.
I have been, and still am, a personal caregiver for my spouse who has Alzheimer's dementia. The experience gained by being there 24/7 is something that cannot be taught in school. Faith, patience, strength, and a great sense of humor will always carry me through any day. It is a personal reward that I gain by assisting others, something that is hard to measure by any means other than what you feel inside. Being the individual that gives the family member the ability to remove themselves for a short time is something of great value, this I know from personal experience. I am 61 years old and have always loved to take care of others and I feel it necessary in life to make a difference in the lives of others. I do not have a medical background, but my personal experience has been my on-the-job training and I want to use what I have learned to assist someone else. What I do have is the ability to cook, clean, assist with or run errands, or maybe just sit and keep someone else company. My husband and I worked jointly for many years, but his medical issues no longer allow this to continue. I do need to work and we have a son and daughter-in-law living next door that can fill in for me to take local employment. I want to make a difference in someone else's life, be the reason someone smiles and hopefully has a better day.
What makes me a great care giver is my personality, i love to laugh with people, i love to have long talks, I am a great listener and I think of my residents as my new best friends, ill talk about life with them and let them share their experiences with me. My goal with care giving is to be as helpful and humble as possible and help you and you're family in the ways i can.
Im sierra! Im 23 years old and currently working my way towards nursing school. I have 10 years experience of babysitting and 6 years experience of elderly care sitting. I have been responsible for companionship, feeding, bathing, meals and medications. I am CPR and basic health certified. I have completed CNA and Phlebotomy certification classes as well.
I am not ashamed to say I am a great care giver. I am compassionate, reliable, dependable, and I have a big heart. I believe in helping others in a way I would want any of my family members to be helped. Including, treating them with respect, having a lot of patience, and always being there no matter what. I have always wanted to be a care giver because I want to help those who can't do for themselves as well anymore. I want to be the person that helps and is there to help when needed, no matter what.
Being able to empathize allows me to put myself in patient shoes, and identify and ease the patients fears and discomfort. Having passion for what I do allows me to be the best caregiver that I can possibly be. I love my job. I genuinely care for my patients and people who are in need. I'm constantly looking for ways to improve my job performance ultimately, to make the lives of each patient the best it can possibly be. Having traits such as honesty and trustworthiness are are indispensable qualities everyone should have. Especially when in the homes of others. There will be many hurdles along the way when caring for different patients. Having patience's and being flexible will allow me plenty of opportunities in the field of nursing.
