Hello, I will offer you or your loved one patience, kindness and compassion. Dependable and prompt. Caring for someone has given me a sense of selflessness in my daily personality. I have many years of experience in working with the elderly. I would love a permanent position, but i can fill-in, short stays up to 3 days, FT or PT.
Thank you for visiting my profile! My name is Yvonne Thompson, and I am a loving caregiver with over 15 years of experience. I have worked with a diverse group of people over the years, and all my experiences have lead me to become a more compassionate caregiver and insightful human being. I first started caregiving because of my interest in health and holistic wellness. I knew as a caregiver my ability to devote true attention and positive energy to my clients would be a special part of their healing process. I love to brighten the days for those who can't always do for themselves. I naturally bring positive energy and happiness everywhere I go and this always inspires my clients. My ultimate achievement as a caregiver, was being able to care for my beloved mother for several years, before she made her final transition from this world. In those years my heart expanded and I knew that being a caregiver was a part of my purpose. I enjoy meeting new people and understanding their story. Family is very important to me and so my clients often become my extended family. I believe that kindness, gentleness and open hearted understanding are the key components of my gift as a caregiver. I understand the vulnerability in opening your home and extending sacred responsibilities of a love one to a stranger. I take my purpose as a caregiver seriously and truly love helping and connecting with people.
My grandparents, as well as my great-grandparents, made a very strong impression on me. I enjoyed spending time with all of them in the summer. Goodness, kindness, and unconditional love from my sweet relatives taught me to be loving, caring, and considerate of my elders. After doing volunteer work at nursing homes, I really felt this was my special 'calling'. Now, I enjoy each and every day, learning from the elderly people that are in my care. I have been driving to Atlanta and Marietta for the past 4 years, as well as Woodstock and Canton. Distance is not an issue for me. Hope to hear from you soon!!
Throughout the years, it has been a blessing to work with families by helping them with their loved ones. One of the main reasons I continue to be a caregiver because I love seeing how God has put me in a position to work through me to care for others. I enjoy establishing relationships with my patients and their families and working together to provide the best care for their loved one. I have been doing this for over 10 years and every patient I had the honor of working with has been a blessing in their own way.
Being a caregiver for the past 8 years has helped me in so many ways. I decided to get into nursing when my mother became sick and couldn't do much for herself and I helped day in and day out. I saw how much of a positive impact it had on her and it made me feel great. I have worked in Hospitals, Nursing Home and Skilled Facilities, Private Duty, cases with Shepard center, brain and spinal injury patients. I love what I do in helping each client I've ever worked with whether it be from recovery start and finish or just companionship and daily living activities. Taking care of someone that needs my help and undivided attention gives me joy and it lets me know how truly appreciated I am to help someone who can't do for themself.
Am a great caregiver because I enjoy caring for those who can no longer care for themselves, I am very compassionate and kind hearted. Before I become a professional caregiver, I take care of my grandfather in the Caribben, Then coming to live in the USA I started a position with a wonderful family in harts dale ny, taking care of the mother and father for almost 9 years. Sadly they passed away 2011 and 2012, they were wonderful people. I really understand what it takes to take care of the elderly. I am very loving, patient and kind, I treat people the way I would like to be treated, I also like to sing for them .
Hello my name is Manica Leon and I have been a Certified Nursing Assistant for 15+years. I love and enjoy taking care of people. The people I care for often times become more than just a patient, they become famliy. I also took care of my paralyzed mother for three years after an awful stroke. Being a Certified Nursing assistant is a rewarding and humbling field for me. I always try to encourage my patients to never give up and know that things could be way worst. I give them a positive outlook on the life they currently have and that they are loved.
