If you're looking for help then this is probably a very stressful time for you and/or your loved one. There is major transition going on -- and some of it might not be welcome. I want to add to your ease, decrease your burden, make this transition easier. You're looking for someone to entrust yourself or your loved one with. You probably want someone you can depend on, who's on time, reliable, conscientious, experienced, dedicated, professional, competent. I am. And I imagine you also want someone who has "soft-skills": intuitive, compassionate, deep listener, empathetic, honest, considerate, patient. That's me too. Put them together and that means you or your loved one will receive care from someone who can hold compassionate space, listen deeply, respond to needs, anticipate what's needed, while also providing competently for health and daily tasks. In addition, I respect the people I work with. Too often, people and professionals treat sick, disabled or elderly people as incompetent, invisible or childlike. I talk to them as adults (if they're mentally capable) and people. I ask health professionals to address the person directly, ask their questions to them, and give them eye contact. I have counseling, facilitating and coaching skills, as well as caring for people with injuries/aging. I am not scared of people being ill on mental, physical, emotional, or spiritual level. I can "hold space" for what comes up. Resparking the will to live after a major life change or physical trauma is something I excel at. It's a lovely dance to find the balance of inter/dependent, and try not to figuratively "step on toes" finding it. I am a certified Holistic Healthcare Practitioner from AONH (Association of Natural Health), which means I can often share healthy advice, while also working within the parameters of your current medical team. With me, you or your loved one is in excellent hands, combined with a compassionate heart, and a bright mind.
People say that when you love what you do it shows. Well, it shows in how I care for my clients. I have loved every client; I have ever cared for, that is what makes me a great caregiver. I have a friend that believed that I would be a great caregiver. She hired me; I worked day shifts and learned a lot about care giving with my first client. I believe that care giving chose me, I am thankful it did. I am now a certified home health aide with over 6 years of experience. I am a kind, trustworthy caregiver with a very diverse skill set. I have decided to go back to college to pursue becoming a Registered Nurse. I am currently on the waiting list at Pima Community College. There is so much to love about working with seniors, I enjoy helping people live with quality and dignity. It is important to share my joy and bring brightness to my clients’ everyday lives. When clients have a medical set back or surgery it gives me joy help them regain some or most all of what they lost. That is one of the most rewarding feelings. My clients are wise, I have learned much from them. Each client holds a special place is my heart, I carry them with me wherever I go. I believe "Happy is the home with a full cookie jar.” therefore, I enjoy baking cookies and live life with zest. A few of my many talents are my organizational skills and positive get it done attitude. I hope to get to know you and work with your family!
