I was raised by my grandmother who was at the time taking care of my grandfather(her husband) who was bed bound for over 10 years, so i got an opportunity to learn first hands on becoming an extra hand for my grand mother,she was compassionate, very caring, clean and very efficient.Am a great caregiver today from the values i learnt from my grandmother, am reliable, efficient, affectionate,caring and a hard worker. I love being a caregiver, i have been doing it for the last 12 years, i have learnt alot throu the years, making a difference, putting a smile on the faces of my clients, being there when they need help,offering companionship by just sitting down with them in there kitchen table while going thru there family albums, recipes and family history. A personal achievement am proud of is that i have become a better and and a wonderful caregiver to so many families i have come in to contacts with, am a the caregiver iam today because of what i have been able to learn from them, the joy and the experience is priceless.
I saw my father go through the aging process and coming from a family-centered culture where care for the elderly is strictly a family affair, the responsibility fell on me. With my dad, I learnt on the job that personal needs such as nutrition, medical needs and hobbies change with the aging process and most importantly, even if they have come to depend on you for most of their needs, you had to gain their trust and independence, dignity and privacy had to be respected. I enjoy being a care giver because it gives me the opportunity to meet wonderful people and get to know the wonderful lives they have lived. It gives an opportunity for human appreciation. You get to understand that your client is not just a statistic but a former or retired teacher, professor, engineer or chemist who has given their service to society. As a professional care giver, I am proud to say that everyone I have ever worked with whether employer or client is never happy to see me go because I go above and beyond expectation and I am able to build and gain the trust of my clients making them more relaxed to lead life as independently as possible. Presently, I am a student at the George Washington University studying public health via the online program and as a mother of two very active young boys, who is responsible for catering for their needs, I can say confidently that I am in health and personal care field for the long haul and you can count on me. Thank you.
