My passion is working with the elderly. I am honored by the families that put their trust in me to care for their loved one who may be on the final path of their life requiring Home Hospice care. or is at that point in their lives where assistance is needed in order to continue staying in their home, being as independent as possable, staying safe. My commitment for each and every person is to provide them with companionship, assistance with physical needs and whatever else they need, whether it's writing a letter for them, or baking their favorite cookies, straightening out closet shelves or holding their hand, reading a book to them or just sitting quietly with them. I believe it is ao important to pocess tthe traits that are important in caregiving which are flexibility, willingness to sit still when you notice its what the person you are caring for needs. Paying attention is very important. A caregiver cannot just "be there" I keep logs in order to ensure the Doctor and nurses and family are notified of ANY changes such as skin color, urine intake/out take, bathroom habits, signs of weakness, facial changes, depression/mood changes. If bedridden, log needs to include turning times, any skin breakdown issues, A good caregiver needs to go outside the box, be willing to do what otherwise might be uncomfortable, be drama free. Assisting the family is one of the things that helps them know who I am and relieves some of the stress from their lives. By helping doing even the smallest of details, yardwork, cleaning a garage etc. I promise you that I will make the same commitment to respect, never diminish their dignity and do all I can to provide the stability, comfort your loved one deservesI I did not become a Caregiver to change the dynamics of lives. but to be there to make them feel safe, healty and secure. Compassion goes a long long way.

I am an exemplary caregiver that is very dependable, friendly, and detail-oriented. I like to connect with people and educate them on preventative care as well as activities of daily living. Since I was in high school I've always worked in the healthcare field. I plan to move up in the healthcare profession and become a Physician Assistant. I am an Alumnus of the University of Nevada Reno with a Bachelors Degree in Biology and a minor in Communications. I have a lot of experience working with a variety of patients starting from when I volunteered at a local hospital while I was in high school. Upon graduating high school I became a certified nursing assistant in order to broaden my experience with patient care. After working as a CNA at Renown, I started this past April working for St. Mary's Regional Medical Center. I was also given the opportunity to become EKG certified. I feel confident in my ability to perform any tasks given to me and would love the opportunity to prove that ability to you. Aside from the skills and qualifications I described above, there are many others on my resume that I think would make me a great fit. I would greatly appreciate the privilege of talking them over with you in more detail. I hope to receive a follow up call or email. In the meantime, thank you for all the time and effort you take in reviewing me as a candidate to work for you!
