I care! I've been a caregiver since 99' when I cared for my grandparents, then my parents. I'm a firm believer of that saying,\" do unto others as you want others to do unto you.\" Being a caregiver you need to have a heart, passion, patience, and understanding. I'm a family oriented person that was raised old school style and church. I'm a 46 yr old Polynesian woman with heart.
Caregiving became my passion when I was asked to help a family member whose health was deteriorating and would not allow an unknown caregiver to help. I am very warm and compassionate by nature, with empathy and understanding of what someone must feel knowing they have lost their independence...of sorts, so I make it a point to make them feel that they are strong and independent I am there to just assist them in what they want to do. I have been fortunate to have a way of helping a person who doesn't want help to welcome it with encouragement and praise. My proudest achievement to date was to get a man the has severe Parkinson's, who could walk but just had no desire too try, as it was just to much effort, too walk daily and now rarely uses a wheelchair.. just his walker. The joy on the face of someone who looks forward to the time they have with you I priceless.

I am truly passionate about caring for others and I want to make a difference in your loved one's life! I am highly skilled at care giving and I am very attentive! i had been an active volunteer in Palolo Chinese Home and Liliha Nursing Home more than five years when my family lived on government welfare, when my children were very little. My interest and ability in homecare job steadily increase with my gained knowledge in nursing homes and my generous helping of many of my senior professors and sickly friends. Care giving jobs drove me to be a keen learner in many new areas, because I was not competent with others, but I self challenged for my thirsty of better knowledge and service. I found more solutions to healthy problems and care giving. i was well educated in Chinese herb by self teaching, most seniors I cared loved me also because of that. i have not started to work the paid job in care giving until very recently. I got English literature BA degree both in China and University of Hawaii Manoa. i immigrated to Hawaii more than 20 years ago. i enjoy to see people happier and healthier because of me and my well care.
I am a compassionate understanding and selfless person . I tend to all the needs and wants of the individual , and strive to achieve the highest standards . I enjoy making others feel like they have a purpose and meaning in life ,and I love being able to fulfill that . I took a career path in health care to help the helpless ,where I can attribute to the needs of the clients with my diverse skills and training acquired over the years of experience . I believe I am a viable candidate for this position and the community where they need more in-home care givers that will give undivided attention and comanpanionship for those in need.
I knew from a young age that I wanted to be a part of the health industry. When my mother was diagnosed with cancer in early 2009, I would help her with showering, combing her hair, nail care, and daily medicine reminders. When she passed my father constantly fell ill and I would be tasked to help him. In 2012, my father went into cardiac arrest and it was my quick thinking and CPR knowledge that saved his life until the paramedics arrived. Although I may be new to the health industry professional wise, I have already changed the lives of many and continue to do so because I am constantly striving to do my best for myself and the clients/patients. I will admit that I'm nowhere near perfect but I am a hard worker and fast learner and can overcome any obstacle. I enjoy being a caregiver/nurse aide because I love being able to help someone get back to feeling their best and doing what they love and not have anything hold them back, medically or physically. Also, it warms my heart to know that I helped make a difference in someone's life.

While education and experience is essential; caring, compassionate forward thinking is a must. With 23 years of caregiving experience it is my mission to help my clients age with dignity and maintain their independence as much as possible. My drive, behind private in home caregiving, is to give every client the opportunity to live their life, to the fullest, in a safe and natural environment. I treat every client with dignity and respect. Every day is a personal achievement when I leave my clients better than when I arrived.
