I believe that I am an awesome caregiver due to the fact I have over eight years of experience. I am very patient, loving, and nurturing. I like to get to know my clients and get them to engage in things they like. I have a very bubbly personality and a warm smile. I go above and beyond with comfort measures. I have great communication skills and talk to them as I am going along so they know what we are doing every step of the way and aren't startled or caught off guard. I have experience with redirection, and transfers. I build wonderful relationships with my clients and set a comfortable family environment in which they feel safe and accepting of my duties there. I serve as their eyes, their legs, their arms, a friend, an advocate, an errand girl, a chef, a housekeeper, a med tech or whatever their needs are I am there to meet them!! I started off as a Medical Assistant but when my grandmother took ill I quit my job to help my mother care for her since my mother was ill her self and attended dialysis. I learned to care for the elderly and fell in love with it. I enjoy hearing their stories and adventures. At times I believe I was born in the wrong era because I have an old soul myself. What I enjoy most as a caregiver is building relationships with my clients. Although eventually they pass due to natures course I am happy to have met them and served them well in their last stages of life. Something I am proud of is continuing my education an enrolling in Nursing school. When i officially graduate I will pursue the Home health industry still working for Hospice as an RN. I have been a caregiver almost a decade and I have learned so much through my clients. Not just from a professional perspective but also just a better human.
