About John

I became a caregiver because I truly enjoy helping people and making their lives easier. I like being a caregiver because I can directly affect the life of a patient or client in a positive meaningful way . I was named caregiver of the year for a job I had back in 2012 I am proud of that . I have been a caregiver for many years but I also was a caregiver as a young man starting at 12 years of age for my great grandma who was 86 at the time. I also looked after my 2 toddler siblings as my mother was a single mom and worked 2 jobs . I also have worked for a long term care facility where I became a manager and shift supervisor . I love my job as a caregiver and will look forward to hearing from someone on here. Thank You

I have a strong care-giving background and have a number of professional experiences which I feel uniquely qualify me as a Caregiver / Companion. Along with my current First Aid and CPR Certifications, I have several years of experience as a caregiver. My previous work background with Hospice of Monterey, CA and Lexington Minute Women of Massachusetts has provided me broad experience in this line of work. I also have had experience in receiving hospice assistance for both of my parents. Requiring the assistance of a homecare agency has taught me, first hand what it feels like to be the client of a homecare agency. It has given me a unique perspective of the knowledge and sensitivity requirements of how to be a good caregiver and companion and to be able to enter a home and be of assistance without being overbearing or intrusive. I am skilled in the following areas: • Personal care assistance; bathing, dressing and grooming • Meal preparation and scheduling • Companionship and discussion • Medication reminders • Light housekeeping • General help to elderly and disabled • Running household tasks • Engaging clients in activates such as games, memory books, and light exercise I enjoy working with the clients of all ages / socio-economic backgrounds and have a demonstrated ability to develop great relationship with them and their families. Moreover, I am trustworthy and responsible person who take great pleasure in caregiving tasks.
