I am careful, safe, organized and coordinated in transporting clients for their needs whether it is for picking up medications, getting them to and from their appointments, filling out forms, helping with their shopping, all personal care service for their daily living for and anytime they want some simple conversation and just not be alone. To give and share with clients, one must be compassionate and patient and have an understanding that those needing care would like for the caregiver to understand their needs. There happens to be an advantage to being a caregiver that can put themselves in the shoes and situation of those with the need. My joy is realized when the needs are filled and the cared for people are grateful and thankful. I want to give the care and experience the joy often. I have experienced this joy with my parents as I cared for them. Currently I am a part-time caregiver for various clients providing them all the assistance they may need. Professional and courteous, always on time. Administering medication and food through a gastric tube. Bathing and attending to other personal hygiene and grooming needs. Food preparation and feeding client, according to strict dietary requirements and procedures Cleaning and light housekeeping (client's laundry, dishwashing, cleaning spaces used by client and caregivers, cleaning therapy equipment) Assisting with therapies (cognitive, speech, occupational) and range-of-motion exercises, including manual transfers to and from bed to assist client with weight-bearing and balance exercises. General companionship and interaction with client (i.e. reading books, cognitive therapies). Driving client to and from appointments and activities in a client-provided wheelchair accessible van.
To know that I'm giving my best to others in time of need is what gives me purpose. I became a caregiver for my mother, when she was recovering from several surgeries, in different skilled nursing facilities. All the while, making many observations concerning the staff and noticing their attention was not up to my standards of what genuine care should be. I knew then, that I could make a difference and was compelled to. Since, I've made strides in obtaining education with certifications; continue with on-line courses to keep me informed with state guidelines and any changes that occur in the health care field...because this is vital. Moreover, I sincerely feel this is my true calling; I find it very rewarding to nurture. I possess emotional and mental maturity necessary for establishing and maintaining a good working relationship with my client and the client's family. I also encompass dignity, patience, courtesy, integrity and a warm sense of humor. Oh! And I love to cook! I've been a caregiver for over 18 years now! I have reliable transportation w/a Texas drivers license. My automobile insurance, CNA, TB screening and CPR are all current and in good standing Thank you for the consideration. Well wishes finding the right fit!
I always give 100% and do the best job I can, with no exceptions or excuses. I also try to bring a sense of humor to my work. If I can add a smile or laugh to a client’s day, that means a lot to me. It is important to laugh. One of the best qualities as a caregiver is my ability to be empathic. I understand that my client may feel vulnerable, scared, confused and uncomfortable, and being able to identify and allay these fears can create a sense of calm and trust for those being cared for.
I love to help my patients feel great about they self...My goal is to provide you with quality personalized care though appropriate coordination of skilled care and services to meet your specific healthcare need..qualified health care professionals will provide on going cashmere,that's is appropriate, competent and consistent..
I love making people smile,even when they're having a bad day, I'm very honest,I take care of my clients as my own family,I help them to be as independent as they can be,I treat them with respect,and I relate to them as a person who love,helping other,and make them feel comfortable in their own home
Good day. I am a 56 yr old father of 4, experienced caregiver. I attended Baylor University in the 80's for a couple of years before enlisting in the USAF. I worked with students with disabilities for Northside ISD for many years. For a few years now, I've immersed myself in the seniors care field and have devoted my work to assist the families of: a WWII 94yr old veteran with dementia and blindness, a 63 yr old retired DEA agent with Parkinson's symptoms, a charming southern lady with fall risks, an army veteran with Alzheimer's, and a former Texas cowboy with post-traumatic brain injury. I'm well versed in providing many services required in at-home caregiving. I have helped with everything from mobility, light housekeeping/meal prep, meds mngmnt, and bathing to companionship, bathing, wound care, and physical/occupational/speech therapy exercises. I believe if given an interview, you'll see I might suit your expectations. Direct communication with me optional. References upon request, of course. Thank you. Jose T

Caregiving is something that I am very passionate about. I make sure that my clients are well cared for and show them respect as if they were my own family. I am a very outgoing and motivational communicator with excellent interpersonal skills.

I'm a caring, compassionate person that sees my job not just as a job but a commitment with great responsibility. Helping to of cared for my own grandmother, who passed three yrs ago at the age of 105, with dementia and Alzheimer's and somewhat my mother now , has given me a greater compassion and consideration for those I care for and their families because I know from personal experience that it can get overwhelming for family members who care, love their elderly and want to keep them at home close to people who truly want the best care for them. I am a mother of six children therefore I not only have the skills medically to be a caregiver but I by nature, personal experience am a nurturer and caregiver. I have a four year degree in theology and am a Christian woman that finds this field very rewarding mentally, emotionally and spiritually although physically it can be tiring. Knowing and going home after a days work that I have made a difference in someone's life is not only satisfying but rewarding for a person like me. I care for elderly, children, people with the same compassion, consideration and affection as I do and would want someone else if need to ,to care for my own family member. Some work for a paycheck others, we have a calling for this type of work, Iv obtained my certificate for of taking the course and updating my knowledge on dementia disorder and caring for individuals with dementia, Alzheimer's. Have updated and completed the NATCEP ,Nurse Aid Texas Competency Evaluation Program.coming from a family that has a few members in the medical field, and experience caring for our love ones at home, I believe I'm more than just qualified for a caregiving position, Than you for taking the time reviewing my profile, Sincerely,Rose..

I started working as a provider for an agency and liked the job then i decided to go back to school and take a cna course so i could have more knowledge of what i was doing (wich i still need to get my certification i have proof of completion ) also to care better for the patients because they deserve to be treated kindly and with respect what i love about this job is that you get to care for others like if they were part of your family.
I became a caregivers because I think the family members should remain at home in their own surrounding. I enjoy being a caregiver because I enjoy taking care of people and help them in the time they have left. I'm proud that my patients trust me to take care of them and feel safe. I have been doing home health for 17yrs and I was trained by my parents.They did home health as live-in's and I would give them time off. Like. 48 to 72hrs.I have also worked in Nursing Home's. Plus I've worked for Nurses. Umlimted for 9 year's now. I love what I do for a living. I enjoy my work because I can give the families a chance to go back to being husband and wife or mother an daughter or son an dad. I try to take away the stress of being a care giver to family members
