I believe what makes me a great caregiver is I generally care about the ones I take care of. Some companies tell you that part of your job is not to get close to your clients or patients, that you can't have a relationship with the ones you take care of on a daily basis. I will always go above and beyond for the ones under my care. I always feel and treat them as if they are one of my family members as well. I wouldn't do anything for them that I wouldn't do for my own mom , grandma, aunt, uncle, dad, grandfather. Not only am I there for the client/patient but I'm also there for the families as well. Questions, concerns, suggestions, keeping them up to date on conditions. Communication is big with me on keeping everyone on the same page so that the best care can be given at all times. I became a caregiver because my ex husband was diagnosed with stage 4 prostate cancer. He called me from the hospital asking for my advise and help. I left California to go back to New York to help him threw his treatments and all of his struggles. His fight has been long and hard and he has not given up yet on life. Seeing other family members go in and out of nursing homes being neglected , alone, and losing their will to live has been a struggle and I've taken caregiver positions with all of my terminally ill relatives and a few friends. I want others to feel that their loved ones are safe and taken care of when they are unable to be there with them. That's the main reason why I do what I do. The fulfillment I get when I know I've made a difference for someone else. Whether it's for the patient that is passing or the family members that need that reassurance their loved one is being properly taken care of. I enjoy everything there is to being a care giver.
A Professional Caregiver that had been working as a Caregiver for almost 28 years and I have done them all from A to Z. I am a natural born caregiver and I am fulfilling my heart's desire, passion, and calling to work in the field of aging. I am very compassionate, caring, committed, dedicated, loyal, trustworthy, and very ethical in my duty as a caregiver. I enjoyed adding value, enhancing, and enriching every lives of every elderly that needs my service. Caring for our senior population is the highest calling and only takes special people to do this line of work. I am one of them. Studying Gerontology was an eye opening after working as a caregiver for many years and to actually get a formal education in the field of Aging is an added bonus. I have dozens of Certifications, already passed background checks with the California Department of Social Services and on their Registry, carry my own Professional Liability insurance as well as my own Bond besides meeting Carelinx requiremens to be on their site. I enjoyed working independently with families that needs my professional services. My hobbies are Volunteering for Hospice, Long Term Care Ombudsman Services and many other organizations. In my free time, I enjoyed writing, reading, going out camping, meditating, and simply finding the right balance to everything I do. I have co-authored two books but currently writing two of my own that talks about my personal journey as a caregiver and reaching my highest potential through personal development. One thing that brings the greatest fulfillment and happiness is providing direct care to clients that needs my professional services.
