Hello, My name is Benta Russell. I began my personal-care career with Synod Residential Service, in August 2013. I have always done personal-care work since I was a young girl. Growing up in Kenya, it was my responsibility to care for my family's elderly. Every day I would take care of my grandparents by fetching them water from the river, cooking their meals. I also did their laundry, cleaned their dishes, and house. One of the many things I have learned throughout the years is that it is very important to be patient and understanding when providing aid to an individual. All the people I have helped have had different strengths and weaknesses, and as the personal-aide, it was my responsibility to understand this in order to adapt to the individual's needs. What I enjoy most about being a caregiver is developing a relationship with the client. As the relationship grows it becomes more than a job and is like finding a new friend. This is important to me because it makes the work that much more enjoyable for both the client and myself. My greatest achievement so far was getting my degree from Washtenaw Community College. There were many days and nights when I wanted to throw my textbooks in the garbage and walk away from school, but I didn't do that. I stuck it through to the end and am very proud to have earned my degree.
I can relate to clients feelings on what they are going through mentally and physically while battling their illness as I have done in caring for My Beloved Grandmother was praised for a wonderful job of doing so by her homecare team that helped me to obtain my certification as a Home Health Aide that I've enjoy doing for 17 years

I enjoy working with people and most enjoy jobs where i have one-on-one interaction with others. I enjoyed taking care of elder family members and would like to help others in this way. I like older adults and feel you can get along well with a variety of elders. I like doing work that has the potential to make a difference in someone's life. I like doing a variety of tasks in a day. I don't ever say, "that's not my job" but instead like pitching in to do whatever is needed. I like making someone smile and doing little things to make a person's day better. I take pride in your attention to detail.

I would like to start with my experience as i feel this is important. I have been doing home care for 19 yrs i also went to Dorsey school for patient care technician which i graduated in 2011. Can do many procedures without error. I like doing home care because you get to wrk one on one with the individual and give that one person your complete and attention. I am a caring person and treat all with respect and digninty i have good references and a well put together portfolio. I am dependable,trust worthy, kind hearted, and work hard to make someone happy.All my employments have been over 2 yrs which i still am employeed with my longest family being 13 years until the sad fact that she passed away. I think that is the most difficult part of our jobs is loosing someone you get to know and care about. I feel if im a good fit for your loved one as well as the involved family that you will not regret your choice. Hope to hear from you soon.
