Hello, just alittle about me. Im an active, outdoorsy person. I spent many years in Colorado and fell in love with hiking and nature all together. I had a pet sitting business there for many years and spent alot of time on the trails and in the mountains. I enjoy the water here in Texas and being so close to so many lakes I can fish on is amazing. Me and my fiance just moved to Paige and are just realizing the amount of work involved with a house on 13 acres, its been fun and what an adventure.
In 1981, when I was a five-year-old child, my mother became gravely sick with an illness her doctors could not diagnose. She often spent four to five months at a time in the hospital, recover enough to come home, but would fall ill again and again with no explanations. This went on for approximately seven years. During the time my mom was home my two sisters, brother, and I did everything we could to make her comfortable that we were capable of doing as children. Yet, seeing my mom in pain and so much discomfort instilled within me a tremendous sense of empathy and compassion. Despite the short periods of time she spent at home between hospitalizations, I developed a deep sense of appreciation for my mother because I missed her terribly. Thankfully, she finally came home and the relief was immense. My grandmother lived with us for 15 years due to her deteriorating health as a result of diabetes, cataracts, loss of hearing, and the loss of the ability to clothe and prepare her own food. I helped to dress her in the morning, attend to her left foot which she almost lost to gangrene. But we managed to heal it and she only lost her left big toe. She was still able to walk albeit with a walking chair. I loved to bake so I would make special desserts for her which she was allowed small portions. It was a great activity for us to bond together. She could watch me make it and give me tips. In college, I became a Caregiver for a quadriplegic man. Although, I didn't have experience caring for a paralyzed man, Michael told me he would explain what he needed on the job. My morning shift started at 7AM and I bathed his nude body, medicated his bedsores, emptied his catheter, performed physical therapy, and fed him his breakfast. If he had chores to complete during my shift, I'd dress him then move him from his bed to his wheelchair and into in his van. Once we finished his chores, I would put him back in his bed, remove his clothing, and clean his apartment.
I have alot of desire to help and helping people is what I desire the most I have alot of compassion for people and putting my need to the side so I can assist others who need it wich in that case makes my day a whole lot better . The moments when you can reflect back and see how you have helped someone is what caregiving is all about.Caring for somone who needs it Being Needed Feeling Accomplished Finding personal strength and increasing confidence Giving back to tired families Character Building Developing new skills Learning to value the present Making a real difference Making somoene smile because you helped them is enough for me .
I'm your extra pair of eyes and safety over night, when they're up or need help to get up I'll be there to help. I do over night shifts 1- 5 days mon - Fri or 48 stright shift fri night - sun night. My skill is caring for others! I am common and simply, I don't use big word or make anyone feel less than. I allow them to do what they can and assist with the rest. Take the time to find things they like to do or used to enjoy. (music, games, drawing, and good companion. I do lite cooking and cleaning. I love it when I can help someone keep enjoy life.
I have been working with people with all very different needs but they all have one thing in common and that is the need for direct care and support training in diffrent areas. i treat all my clients with love honesty and respect just as i do with my immediate family beause we are all one.
I have had a life-long passion for working with adults who are differently abled, and have a great amount of compassion and empathy for such individuals. I started volunteering as a peer counselor when I was working on my bachelor's degree, and found it to be incredibly rewarding. After two more volunteering positions in human services, in addition to working as a case manager and caregiver with dementia-diagnosed clients, I decided that I wanted to dedicate my life to caregiving and social services, and continue this amazing journey. There is great satisfaction in being able to assist individuals who are in need of help to maintain a quality of life that they desire, in addition to helping people to better themselves. I am very proud of the work that I have accomplished both academically, in my community, and professionally. And lastly, here's a little bit about me: I have a BA in psychology and human services, and have aspirations to return to school for a doctorate in psychology. On a personal note, I am an artist in my down time, love my two dogs, appreciate the outdoors, am an avid gardener, and very much love cooking and baking.
