Hello my name is Marsha Taylor. just a little bit about me. I was just 17 years old taking care of my grandmother she was very sick right before my grandmother passed away. I told her I think I found what type of work I wanted to do.working in the medical field. so the very first job I got was becoming a caregiver.so I started helping people that couldn't help their self and people that needed assisting with doing their day to day living and I love it. I enjoyed it so much I stayed at my very first job for 19 years .Then I want to learn more and I became a certified nurse assistant I got my HHA ,CPR ,first aid ,BLS I worked in nursing homes, Care homes,private care, Post acute .I can honestly say I enjoy what I do working with elderly ,young adults ,and also children... I also have experience and management, lead cashier, sales & associates, customer service, and retail... Dedication,patients,and respect...
work and grow in a professional environment where my knowledge, experience, and creativity can be put to the best use. Also I am a good worker and very reliable and a fast learner. When Things get tuff I am a problem solver and a good thinker. I work best either in a group setting or alone when the task need to be done I am the one who takes charge. Caregiving has been part of my family tradition.
Iam a very patient person that helps me to be a great caregiver. Working with elderly, we need to be patient, since life has slowed down for them , we need to go on their pace not ours.
What attracted me to be a caregiver is that , back home its a joy for us to take care of our elderly family members. For 18yrs i worked for The Salvation Army in Fiji , I managed care facilities that housed victims of defilement ,rape and domestic violence. There were clients who were old, displaced , disabled and homeless. Caring for people with different kinds of needs became part of my life.
What i enjoy most about being a caregiver is that when i see those under my care are happy, fullfilled,content inspite of their medical condition. I enjoy when i see that i had made a difference in someones life.
The achievement iam proud of is that in the past i had taken care of very severe dementia clients. I had cared for some clients for above years in a row. I had learnt a lot on the job and that experience i gained is what makes me proud.
