I FEEL I AM A GOOD CAREGIVER CAUSE I HAVE THE BEST PATIENCE,HEART,AN SMILE AN I TREAT AN INDIVIDUAL AS I WOULD WANT TO BE TREATED ALWAYS... I BECAME A CAREGIVER IN 2000 I HAVE ALWAYS HAD THAT PASSION FOR HELPING THE ELDERLY IF IT WAS FROM OPENING THE DOOR FOR THEM,THEIR GROCERIES,FINDING ITEMS IN THE GROCERIES FOR THEM,HELPING THEM TO THEIR CAR ETC.JUST KNOWING THAT I HAVE HELPED SOMEONE MAKE THEIR DAY A LITTLE EASIER AN THE APPRECIATION FROM IT.... WHAT I ENJOY MOST IS BEING NEEDED BY SOMEONE WHO NEEDS IT THE MOST I LEARN SOMETHING EVERY SINGLE DAY WHICH IS A PLUS,THE SMILES,THE FEELING OF COMFORTING SOMEONE EVERYDAY IS A BIG PLUS...... MY PERSONAL ACHIEVEMENT FOR ME I FEEL IS BEING A DIE HARD,CARING,COMPASSIONATE,PATIENT,PERSISTENT,CAREGIVER FOR 18YEARS AN STILL GOING WITH THE UPMOST RESPECT FOR THE ELDERLY..... THANK YOU Hi, my name is Donnetta. I have been a caregiver for 4 years now. I currently work in a Senior living facility, and take care of my grandmother that has Dementia and a Psychotic disorder. I became a caregiver because I love being able to help others, and it really hits home with me. I also really enjoy seeing them happy, listening to them reminiscence, getting to be a part of their world as it is now. Being a part of their world, the way they currently see things, that's something that you have to embrace. I am TB negative, my background is clean and I am drug free. I am not CNA certified, but, I have been trained just like a CNA. I have applied for a background check, its just not in yet.
Good luck with your search for great care!
