Before I thought that I was a really patient person because I use to love to take care of my love ones,friends, neighbors,etc even when they're show bad actitudes or behaviors or situations that you really need to understand them and love them like that and offer them your help. But in the middle of my life I realized that is not just patient is also compassion,that's all we need to take care with love and I think this is the most important thing for being a great caregiver . When I discovered that ,I deside to become a caregiver ,and I love to be part of all of wonderful ladies, and gentlemen life's that I have been working with. I feel so blessed to help and love to get all the knowledge,wise,kindness,etc from them. I just move in from California and I still feel heartbreaking from my clients that I left back there but I have been in touch with all of them and that make me feel better,so I have a lot references from all my clients and the agencies that I've been working with 😊
Hi! My name is Beatrice and I am a certified AHCAS. I chose to be a caregiver because I do care and I have a lot of empathy for my clients. I face new challenges every day and I love it! I am a perfectionist. I love to help people with everything they need to be helped. From simple things like cleaning and cooking, to all that includes ADL and IADL. Beside, I can help with all kind of paper work, even apply for benefits, paying bills, making doctor appointments, managing your medication, taking you wherever you need to go!!!! Also a good driver. I am a good listener, positive attitude, great companion, happy person and definitely I can make your life easier. I am extremely satisfied if you are satisfied. Your happiness and overall well being makes me feel happy and useful. I strongly believe that when I help you, I also help myself. I am catholic and pray and meditate as often as I can. I can manage my time and yours as well. I am proud to be at your service. Thank you.
I have great passion working with seniors and people who need help as well. Have developed and it has been my interest to not only work with elders and others but also to fellowship with them as well. I found it interesting and lovely especially when they tell those old stories and their words of wisdom great asset.
A caregiver of seven years trained to handle a variety of health and behavioral situations, I am aware of the impulse of families to want to ensure the health and well-being of loved ones. The help may just call for daily living activities with extra touches that make life worthwhile: decent exercise, tasty healthy meals, a clean, pleasant environment, a good listener and conversationalist, and kind, competent care. Some situations, however, require attending to seemingly insignificant, but crucial tasks, such as reminders to drink enough liquids, to move body and limbs periodically to avoid pressure points and muscle atrophy. I believe my care is dispensed with respect, kindness, and purpose, mindful their need for such greater than ever. A general "How are you?" might be followed with a specific "Do you feel dizzy",; and too long a spell on the couch will suggest an exercise or outside to smell the roses. The idea, above all, is to provide for the well-being of body and soul. A wise tip I learned is to give old people something to look forward to, whether a fun treat or an item in their bucket list. It may not always be possible, but sometimes, even just trying helps. My career history is eclectic, but caregiving suits me because I believe I make a difference in the lives of those in my care; more often than not, the tables are turned to make me pay attention. I consider my charges' health and well-being challenges, such as easing a cynic's attitude with kindness or making one's last days a comfort. By researching and learning about their ailments before I take over, I make certain I "do no harm". I have gained hands on and annual online training from Home Health Aide courses and nurse delegated work. An energetic, resourceful worker, I offer empathy, kindness, and a bright outlook. They are what I gave my mom, now lovingly sent off to join dad, with plenty to spare for others.

I fall into friendships with the people l come into contact with and enjoy their company as well as being there for them. They have a wealth of knowledge to share and l always learn from them. I actually took over one of my mother's clients when in high school and she became my grandmother, and very dear to me. That was my first experience which l enjoyed immensely. I've been in the field solidly since 1984 when l got into a fender bender and my doctor hired me. I was trained to be an MA,, then in 1998 we moved to Seattle from California where l became a CNA. I worked at Fircrest with special needs clients and floated as a CNA to nursing homes and hospitals, and locked units to ICU. I know how family wants their loved ones treated and happy to oblige. I took care of my own mother in her time of need because l wanted her to have the best care. My goal is to make sure your loved one gets that same care because that is where real satisfaction stems from.
I had to take care of my own parents when they both required extensive home care due to Alzheimers and learned then how vital it is to fully understand these afflications and how to deal with them for the best quality of life and dignity and comfort of those elderly. I enjoy interacting with those that have lived long and interesting lives and I recognize the need to return the help and care to them after they have spent a lifetime helping others. I especially enjoy interacting with the family of those elders that I care for and providing appropriate assistance to them also in regards dealing with their elderly relatives and the end of life situations that occur. I have personally dealt with over 15 hospice situations and made the end of life transition smooth and dignified and compassionate for all involved. I have found that through improving the quality and enjoyment of daily life for elderly that they simply do better and enjoy living. No matter what the circumstances, and no matter how far gone they are, they still respond to care and love and appropriate attention and return such in whatever way they are still able to. I spent most of my life working in construction in all trades and all levels up to Management and Supervision. I retired from that sort of physical activity due to some aggravated injuries and found that there is a vast need for compassionate and understanding care and assistance needed for elderly. Since I am not so far removed from the elderl
