I have a desire to help other people. I try to be kind and compassionate and understanding. I find that when I am helping other people it makes me feel good and love the person I am. I would say that my greatest accomplishment in this field is that I have had 2 jobs that lasted for 10 years each in this field. That is a huge accomplishment to me because in this field and great caregiver usually lasts about 3 months. I stayed with the families from my 1st day on the job until their parents last days on earth.
Hi! My name is Jalyn, I am brand new to California and seeking to continue my caregiver career down in Redding. I have pursued this path of career due to always being in a family of caregivers, it is so rewarding and you meet some really great clients. I have been a caregiver for around a year, dealing with in home care of all types such as bathing, housekeeping, companionship. Due to being in the field for a year or so, I have encountered many different walks of people that have helped me gain my experience in such a short time. I absolutely look forward to where this career heads me. Thank you!
What makes me a great caregiver is I have a God given gift of compassion and the ability to solve problems. I also have a cheery personality and love to laugh and in this business it's important! Also I know how to get whatever needed... done! I started out 16 years ago taking care of my husband who had renal failure requiring a kidney transplant. When that failed he had to back on dialysis which slowly tore his body down a little at a time and could no longer even walk, shower or brush his teeth. I did everything for him and wouldn't have had it any other way! For the last 2 years I've been taking care of a lady with heart disease. I do her laundry, shop, cook, serve, clean, manage her meds and accompany her to Dr. visits.
I am a licensed CNA and currently working as a mentor to people with developmental and physical disabilities. When I was 12 years old my grandma was diagnosed with ALS and I helped care for her until she passed, that experience led me on to become a CNA and commit to helping those in need with every day living. I'm very open-minded and compassionate.
I show both empathy and compassion. I let let the person I am are caring for know that I care about the person and want to do what they can to help them. Most importantly, I have patient and understanding. It helps to sometimes put yourself in the other person's shoes and see what it might be like to ask people for help. I'm very reliable and trustworthy. I am prepared to go with the flow, being flexible, so that I continue to provide good home care, even if a rigid schedule isn't being followed.
I have years of experience working with the elderly, disabled and at-risk youth. I have excellent references. I enjoy spending time getting to know my clients and allowing them to be as independent as possible. I have worked with teams of doctors, nurses and family members to create comprehensive plans that work for my clients needs. I have EMT experience, am registered with the state of CA, TB tested, current DL, own transportation, insurance and am drug and alcohol free. I would love to hear from you!
My first experience as a caregiver was when I was 15 years old. My grandfather was diagnosed with terminal brain cancer. Both my parents were school teachers so I was responsible for his care every day after school till they got home. My heart is in taking care of others and helping keep them home in there comfort zone as long as possible. I am 38, I obtained my CNA in 2000 and have worked with different companies ever since. I enjoy all people with different illnesses I have extensive training with accute, long term, rehabilitation, psych holds, pediatric and also worked for two years in a lock down alshiemers ward. The job is hard and sometimes mentally exhausting, but I couldn't imagine doing anything different.
1. I wanted to be a nurse since I was a young girl. Never had the chance to be an RN due to many reasons. 8 years ago I have decide to go to school again and get my CNA linsence. Knowing that I can help an elderly people make their everyday life possible for them is very rewarding. I am very compassionate about others it doesn't matter if it's younger or older than I am. I think helping others is such a blessing that you can share to others. 2. What I like most about it is that at end of the day I know I did something good to help someone make their life more easier for them. 3. When my residents acknowledged my hard work and nominate me as the employee of the month. And for that I am proud of myself and I thank my parents for teaching me how to be compassionate to others. 4. My name is Ailyn Atwell. I am from the Philippines and I have a 14 year old son that lives with me. I've been doing a live-in care since 2008. I have no criminal history, not smoking and not drinking. A very good moral character, love her family and a very compassionate human being.
I have always wanted to help people with special needs; perhaps because I had a sibling who was born with severe disabilities, so I know first hand the difficulties and challenges faced by these individuals and their families. There was very little help available when I was a child, so we relied mainly on our family for the help and support we needed. Back then, there were no respite services or in-home caregiver services. You took your chances on finding a trustworthy stranger (if you could afford one). Now, it is very gratifying to me to be able to help other people who are dealing with illness or disability in any way I can. I like to make jewelry and craft items, and I like to share those hobbies with my clients, if they're interested. Many of them seem to enjoy these activities and find them gratifying. I also love to read, and some clients enjoy being read to, which I also enjoy. I've been told I'm a good listener and a pretty good companion, as I can adapt to whatever my client is capable of and willing to do. I am experienced, caring, and am a retired social worker.
I started out caregiving when I took care of my grandmother and that was in 1986, she had pancreatic cancer she was such a trooper. To make my patients feel comfortable is number one whether a smile or running errands, doctors appointments, and always make them feel secure and respected In their life. I love to make them feel comfortable. My personal achievement is to make them happy and comfortable, to be that ear and listen to their stories. I feel that companionship is very important! I am a caring person and I also speak Spanish, Family oriented.
