About kristie

A little about me is that i love taking care of residents that cant help themselves because, the look in their eyes when someone they know are taking good care of them is priceless! all my residents that i have had the joy of being around loved me, beacuse i am a sweet ,funny and comforting person! I know sometimes it gets hard on the family and they cant be there as much as they like ,thats where i come in. I have always had a caring attitude when it comes to the ederly people . even thou i have had many to pass while doing this work and it dosent get easier because i becomes so attached it hurts everytime one pass., but im proud in those moments and times i was able to make a diffrence in their lives. My heart was my grandmother and when she died i was not their and it kilt me! I do this because i love it and also because i promised myself that i was not there for my grandmom when she passed and i know she felt that my presence was not there-from then on i vowed to myself wherever i worked are sat at another ederly person will feel my presence with them because i will be by their side and make them feel comfortable as i can...I have a lot of expirence working with dementia and alzheimers residents, some times it gets hard but when they laugh it makes my day, because i know that they dont know.

I became a caregiver by nature. My mother died when I was 10 and I became the caregiver of my 7 siblings. Also, several members of my family have become ill and I have had to care for them as well. My husband, whom has died, live with Huntington disease for several years. I was his caregiver. When my brother had a stroke, he didn't trust anyone else so I cared for him until he was able to maintain on his own. My son, developed heart failure. I immediately stepped in and took total care of him. Through my diligence, he is now a new man; maintaining his heart condition with enjoyable life! I enjoy caring for others because it gives me a satisfaction to know they are going to receive the best of care, because I will always give my best. It is the way I would want to be treated with love and respect.
