Hello my name is latoria I'm a certified nursing assistant I've been in the field for 3 to 4years and I love it I became a caregiver when my grandmother was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2009 I took care of her until she passed in 2011 every since then i enjoy taking care of peopler just being there for them whenever they need someone to talk to. I'm very proud of the woman I've become today raising my 6month old was the best blessing in my life. I hope to bring my love and compassion into your lives as your caregivers!
I became a caregiver, when my mother became very ill. I decieded to stop working with my employer to take of my mother. I new everything about her and her needs. I new what it takes to care for her and I could spend all the time in the world with her. My mother was very important to me and my siblings and I couldn't trust anyone at the time of her sickness. I thought it would be hard and tiresome but it wasn't. We became more closer. She shared a lot of important things with me that I never knew about. I was glad to able to be in good health to take care of my mother who is so important to me and my siblings. I'm a proud daughter to know I was able to be there when she needed me and I was a shoulder she could lean on and a ear to listen to all the things she wanted to say, my mother was the best thing that ever happen to me. She was always there when we needed her. She cried when we cried, she hurt when we hurt, she was my only best friend and now she past away I truly miss her. I wish I can turn back the hands of time just to spend a little more time with her. She taught me everything I needed to know about life and how to appreciate the things we go through. She was the best of all mothers. So that's why I love working as a caregiver, it helps you help others go through their situation a little bit better, and give them comfort when they don't have anyone else to talk too. I give them hope of relief, my mother taught and showed me that. I love helping people who can't hel
I am Jodi Segars, 29 years old and just moved to Florence, SC in February. I have been working with the elderly for 9 years now. My whole family including my mother, aunt, sister, and sister in law all work in the healthcare field. I feel that honesty, trust, patience, caring are all personality traits it takes to be a great caregiver. Growing up I was always with my grandparents, always wanting to help my mom take care of others. I put others before myself. The most I enjoy about being a caregiver is the one on one time I get to spend with the client, get to know them, their likes and dislikes, try to let them be independent as possible. At the end of the day, knowing that I have helped someone in every way I can and cared for them and did my best I can gets me through each and everyday. I feel accomplished to provide care for anyone that needs it, and I do it with my utmost respect.
I have an intense passion for empowering our youth as well as women and men of all ages. I've spent the past 12 years teaching and mentoring high school students, and the past 4 years counseling children with mental and behavioral health problems. I feel that being a caregiver would help me further my desires to help people in need and motivate them to love life and continue being their greatest. I've worked with children with autism and children and adults with behavioral and mental health problems.
I am a caring person who gives my all to my clients. I really enjoy caring for people and making a difference in their lives. I enjoy interacting with my clients, like reading , conversation, games when appropriate and taking them for walks when possible. Personal achievements for me are seeing a smile or getting a hug from my clients when I arrive to take care of them. It makes me feel good to know that my clients enjoy seeing me to care for them.
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 always been interested in the health field. When I was younger I recall seeing my great uncle in the hospital and all the machines and functions that each caregiver gave really amazed me. During my CNA training, we were placed in a nursing home for 6 weeks to get on the job training, in this time I went out of my way to do many different things that most other caregivers would not think of or remember to do. I love to help others and make anyone as comfortable as possible. When caring for anyone I always think "What if this were my family member?" and that makes me strive even harder to please the person that I'm caring for.
I became a caregiver back in 2007 when I was a CNA. My certification has expired because two years I forgot to pay the recertification. But I become one because I love to take care of people no matter the age. I wanted to take care of my grandmother but everyone at that time said that I was too young in which I was. So I knew from here on out that I could take care of the ones who needed help the most. I like being a caregiver because you gives you the chance to see how life was in there time of living and getting to know them. I am proud to say that I have achieved the ability to take care of someone better then yesterday. I am 26 years old and I have been taking care of the elderly since I was 19 years of age. I am the baby girl out of my mother 4 children and I just recently got married in December 2013. I don't have any children and I am currently going back to school online at University of Phoenix to get my Bachelor's Degree in Human Services with a Concentration in Addictions.
What makes me a great caregiver is being able to show empathy and compassion, to see my assignment more a ministry and calling than "work". I love people and working with families. I chose this area of work because it relates to my persona in that i am a natural , caring person by nature. My greatest achievements are when I am able to see results from the care and compassion I give. For example, when I have successfully been able to transition a patient from a state of "depression" to a sense of well-being and hope. I integrate this by instilling positive attitude, care and love for my clients with genuineness . I enjoy what I do and love getting up in the morning to make a difference the patient and families' lives. Additionally, I feel that I am better capable of caring for families given my wealth of experience from working with children in primary education as a certified childcare giver to going into the medial capacity working with families of all ages including geriatrics. I have worked in the medical field for over 20 years with the last of my years as a Medical Assistant in Orthopedics.
I can do just about anything. I have raised 3 children and my mother has lived with me now since 2012. I use to take care of a lady who became special to me, And I loved being with her! She gave me the love for caregiving! I use to help with her baths, get her dressed, do her hair, cook for her and her husband, go grocery shopping for them and do odd and end things around her house. I enjoy being a caregiver because i know that it helps people who cant do it themselves!
