Hello. I am a French lady. I love to help people, I am compassionate, respectful, honest , caring and self starter. I also am a fast learner. I want to be helpful in my new country, that is the reason I became a Caregiver.
I like to see a smile on my patient face or a sign of comfort even if the person is no speaking. Make people feel happy is one of my goal in life.
I always find a way to communicate with my patients no matter what. I am very patient. I feel their needs and it is very important in caregiving.
I am a easy going person, I love my job and like excellence in what I do and I do my job with my heart, with expertise,
My BLS ( first aid and is valid from 2014 to 2016.
I also speak French, Italian, Portuguese. I never smoke, no drinkt, no drogue. I have a clean driving record . I am american and christian.
What makes me a great caregiver would have to be my patience, compassion, consideration, empathy, attention to detail and my love for others. I treat others with the same respect that I would want.
My mother was diagnosed with a savvier disorder for sleep apnea when I was only 4. 3 yrs later she was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, nerve damage then formed from diabetes as well as sugar issues. 5 months later she was then diagnosed with lupus. She also had a fluid disorder, arthritis, obesity, blood disorder (polycythemia vera), She was never diagnosed but we believed she had formed dementia 1 yr before her death. I took on the responsibility of taking care of her at 17. When I was 18 she had to undergo a thrombectomy (surgery to remove blood clots). She had 1 1/2 gallons removed. When she came home I was her caretaker/caregiver for her surgery recovery. I took her to and from her appointments, helped her bath, fixed her meals, administered her medications and kept up with her medications and ran her errands. I would have to say this as well as the job I worked as a health aid has attracted me to be a great caregiver. I have also dealt with and still deal with epilepsy, My sister and my aunt have grandma seizures, my cousin has pseudoseizures ( not epileptic they are emotion stress induced).
What I most enjoy is the one on one bond that you gain from the resident you are caring for. This type of job gives someone a nice sense of respect, It helps one gain more knowledge and helps family's in need of help to get that help. It takes a lot for someone to leave there loved one with a stranger, I gain a sense of respect and honesty to be trusted with this individual.
A personal achievement that I am proud of would have to be taking care of my mom as well as being there for my sister, aunt, and cousin. There is a lot of health problems in my family and I am proud that I am the one that is able to help them.
