I am a fine quality Caregiver, for I put my heart into my care. Your Mother becomes my own Mother in that I listen to her, drawing out her needs, sorrows, memories, and joys. I am able to be a strong Companion whereby I encourage and uplift the client, reducing worry with positive thinking and reinforcement. I have a good sense of humor and am pleasant to be around. My job is about my client first. How may I serve this person? How may I bring color back into my client's life? I don't use my cellphone unless emergency, but am continually active with my client in many ways, such as taking pictures, creating memory albums for family, reading, interaction ongoing. I bring enthusiasm, graciousness and contentment to any Senior. I am highly moral, protective, on time, and aware of danger. I am loyal from the beginning of my assignment to the end. The families whose Mothers I have cared for trusted me alone with their Mother, as the only Caregiver with the exception of 1 current client for whom family has 4 caregivers in place for round the clock care. I do not use the hoyer lift, nor lift or carry clients, nor give medical care or nursing. I am happy to do light housekeeping, errands, shopping, banking, meal prep, stand by assistance, toileting, showering, dressing, grooming, and give good quality companionship. I am unable to work in a smoking environment. I love animals. As well, I bring 24 years executive secretary experience to you, should you need organization or detailed tasks performed, such as filing, sorting, etc. Im interested in working for you on Tuesday through Friday, for at least 4 hours up to 8 hours daily. I will work 1 day alone up to 4 days depending upon the hours you need care. I look forward to meeting you! Sincerely, Rachel

Hi, thanks for taking the time to learn a little about me. Giving care to someone is more like being their greatest advocate, they let me know what they want, need, and can do in their lives and I do my best to achieve this with them. I am very adaptable to follow protocol, or be spontaneous within the allowed guidelines. Safety, respect, listening, assisting are all just basic musts and needs. I am pretty strong, love exploring or relaxing at home. I enjoy making those in my circle feel cared for and unconditionally accepted, it gives me a peace. While medical assisting for six years, I noticed a decline in the kind of care for the vulnerable and assisted patients - It weighed so heavy on me that I decided to change careers. I found a new passion for learning about all the diagnosis' I saw in the clinic and how people adapted to living with them daily. I took every hard case on... loving the challenges. I took as many syndromes and specialty needs as I could and that helped me learn how to approach each person as an individual no matter what their challenges were. All that said, I have many moments that I can say are my favorites, but it comes down to being blessed by those I work for. I stated earlier I am adaptable, and that means I bring a nice and varied background, but I am more interested in learning about the next person who selects me and how to weave my experiences to make their life better, maybe even fuller.. any way I can. Thank you! Vicky
