I am a great care giver because I give compassionate care. When I was younger my dad and I would go to spend time with my grandparents daily to be sure they had what was needed. This made such an impact on my life that I decided to get into the medical field.
Skills & Certifications: Geriatric Care Manager (GCM)
Hi, my name is Bonnie Blackman. I'm originally from New York and I've been living in California for the last 30 years. I've been a caregiver for about 35-40 years. I wanted to be a caregiver for my whole life and I knew that that was my choice career and I knew that that was my goal. I want to be a caregiver because I am passionate about it. I have a young son who needs care, I also have a brother with severe MS and elderly family members and I want the best care for them as possible. Characteristics I would look for in a caregiver would be for the caregiver to meet the client where they are at and not only being compassionate towards them, but also understanding what their individual needs are, what their obstacles are and what they have to overcome personally to accept me into their home. Also, the family is a big part of the whole system and you need to look at it holistically and not just you coming into someone else's home - it's you coming in with a lot of trust, a lot of empathy and compassion. Compassion is a number one. In my free time I love to be with my family, I love to garden, play tennis and to swim.
