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..
