Through personal experience with both my grandmothers, we found it difficult to find good quality and reliable care. Starting in High school I took a medical terminology course , and from there my interest in the medical field grew. I took the CNA course through Blackhawk Technical College in Janesville and LOVED IT! I opted to take the additional Advance Nursing Assistant course. I have worked in many different environment such as nursing homes, hospital and Home Health. After 3 years I decided to open my own business become licensed and insured to provide Care for others in their Home and it's been the Best discission of my life!!

I am a very patient caregiver that has all types of experience with dealing with the elderly and individual with disabilities. I believe it's important for the client and caregiver to bond and trust each other. Its the caregivers job to make sure that the client is very well taken care of in every way possible. I am friendly, responsible and very caring. I have been in the caregiver industry since 2005.
I became a caregiver over ten years ago.While my parents began to age and I would help them out I found that I really liked doing it.The satisfaction of being able to do for others grew my passion to help people that can't help themselves and their families also.Right now I an enrolled in school to get my Assoc degree in health and human services to persue my passion for seniors and veterans.
After years of caregiving in the home including taking care of my mom who had gone through all the stages of Alzheimer's I learned about compassion, patience, love, and understanding.The greatest thing you can do in life is to care for someone. I enjoy doing crafts, being with people and traveling. I also do walks for charities. I am looking for part time work durning the day.
I have a been a personal caregiver for over 15 years I started out working as a Cna in nursing home and I thoroughly enjoy and love the helping others out. It is very fulfilling to me knowing I can help out in any way I can by just simply being there when they need someone. In addition to providing companionship, I can help monitor medications, prepare delicious meals, keep home and laundry clean, transport to Doctors appointments, etc. Your loved one will be in good hands when they are with me.
I came to care for my mother's needs after her triple bypass. And have always been a caregiver in some sort of way. My clients have ranged with various needs brain trauma, Cancer and Dementia. I am a nurturer by design. I like helping people to be as independent as possible.I am a warm and engaging person. When I can make my clients smile and feel good about their day,then I know the world is brighter. I am a mom to a high functioning autistic son and a have beautiful daughter.I am also married over 20 years which is huge!
When my mother was ill, I was the one she would call to make her scrambled eggs. I took her to the swimming pool and hot tub to get exercise and relaxation. I cut her hair, took her to doctor's appointments and then lunch, and generally gave her some companionship. As I dusted her knickknacks, she told me where each was from. Mom died in 2002. When dad was ailing, some of my family tried to move him into assisted living, but he wanted to stay in his own home. I gave up my apartment and moved in with him, while working in publishing during the day. We had a great time together for a year and a half. Just after he died, I lost my job because I had spent too much time with dad. That evening, the daughter of a neighbor I'd assisted over the years called me, asking if I could help her mother. That began years of caregiving in which I have helped people stay in their homes, and enjoy life. I've brought my keyboard and played hymns and popular songs, singing with them and laughing. As a caregiver, I am simply happy to help my people stay in their own familiar setting. I believe the way I interact with them makes them happy. And my cooking makes them extremely happy! I built my cooking experience on my mom's, then learned to cook for fewer than 8 people! I edited three "Taste of the Country" cookbooks, working with a professional dietician who taught me many ways to fit dietary needs while providing tasty food.
I have been doing Caregiver work since I myself fully recovered from a massive job stroke. I've worked with Agencies, at an Assisted Living place where I was paid CNA rates based on my own life experiences. Worked as a Personal Private Caregiver through personal references. I find being a Caregiver to be a very rewarding experience.
I have been a caregiver for the last 18 years. I received my CNA Licence in 2007. I also have a degree in criminal justice. I enjoy being a caregiver it brings joy to me knowing I am caring for a person who truly needs me. I am able to do my CNA duties along with providing companionship.
