I was a Librarian back in the Philippines but when I came to the US in 2006, my friend encouraged me to try working with the elderly as a caregiver. Since then, I have been working as a caregiver and I developed the love and passion in taking care of the elderly. I had experienced.taking care.of elderly with different health issues such as Alzheimers, Dementia, diabetis, heart diseases (ie. CHF), Lung or respiratory disease, Stroke, non-ambulatory, bed bound elderly, etc. I assist them with their activities of daily living, prepare meals, laundry, do light housekeeping, medication reminder, assist with their errands and there were some elderly who asked me to organize their bills, do grocery and run other errands for them. I was not only a caregiver.but also a personal assistant. I am proud of being a caregiver because I know I make a difference in the lives of the elderly and I become part of the last journey of their lives. My nationality is Filipino, married, with 4 grown up children and 12 grandchildren who live in the Philippines.

I am a compassionate and dedicated caregiver with experience of two years. I just moved back to my hometown (Chicago, Il) from a small town in Minnesota. While I was over in Minnesota, I became a certified nursing assistant at a nursing home that offered long-term, rehab and memory care services. I immediately knew it was the job for me. I made amazing friendships with fellow caregivers who shared the same passion as mine. I also met residents who changed my life and made me feel proud of what I was doing. Being a care giver was the most rewarding thing I have ever done. I primarily worked in the memory care unit where I dealt with combative residents daily. I learned all my resident's triggers and provided them with a proper response. I played cards with them, sang songs, even danced and helped them with their activities of daily living. (Not limited to bathing, toileting, feeding, grooming, companionship, and recorded their vital signs.) I miss them all so much and I am eager to continue working as a caregiver. I plan on continuing my education and becoming a registered nurse.
