I currently work as a direct support professional at Saratoga Bridges. I find this job very rewarding and touching. I feel that those with disabilities have the biggest hearts and offer the greatest learning opportunities. Many.people are quick to judge these people instead of taking the chance to really get to know them. I think they would offer you the world if they had it to give. I enjoy watching them grow and helping them in the areas in which they may struggle. I enjoy joy helping others and have a big heart. I have always been one to help those who need it. I am currently going to school to become an RN and eventually want to work with children with cancer at St. Judes.
I have 22 years experience in geriatric care, with a concentration in Alzheimer's/Dementia. I've worked in all different levels of facilities as well as private duty positions. I enjoy helping anyone in need, young or old. My current certifications are in Cardiac Dysrhymias and BLS. My MMR/PPD is current. I'm very patient and compassionate, I hope you'll consider me!
What drew me to this field initially was when my grandmother had a heart attack. There are some good hospitals in florida (where I lived at the time) but majority are poor quality. Unfortunately, my grandmother ended up in one that wasn't great quality. At 16 years old, I stayed in her hospital room, sleeping on the floor, to ensure that if she needed to toilet, I could help her. I helped bathe her, and spent time with her. I did tasks that a CNA should have been performing, but it was the best thing for her because it gave her a sense of dignity in a moment of her life that was hard enough as it was. I have been working towards getting my RN completed ever since; while this goal has still not been accomplished, I am working towards it. Family is important to me, as I'm sure it is to you for your loved one. I am a single mother of 2 boys, recently divorced. I am a hard worker, and very passionate about what I do. I take my time where it matters, and recognize that there is always room for education and improvement.
I believe a caregiver should be someone that the patient can trust undoubtedly, and be able to bond with. After all we spend so much time with someone in their home everyone needs to be comfortable. I don't just see caring for people as a service but an honor. To be able to get to know someone's life, likes, dislikes and story all make this type of work extremely rewarding. **Will be available full time any hours after May first. Until then times will need to be set up in advance. My other job is 2-10 pm.
I have been working as a Home Health Aide for nine years, one of my patients, my last one was with me for eight years till she past away. . During that course I also work with two patients in a day on different shifts. All of my patients love my dietary cooking, as well as my easy to get along personality. This is my job and I love it and everything I do is with love. Mrs D.S. was a small 4 feet 5 inches frail 89 years old widow, whom had everything from Alzheimer's dementia to Diabetes mellitus and kidney disease, coronary arterial disease and hypertension I took care of her till the very end ,may she R.I.P... So when I work with someone I treat them as my own.....Isilma Romero

A personal achievement for me is getting recognized as aide of the year. I am available to cover a wide area to provide services.
For 2yrs I took care of my grandparents before they passed. My grandpa had hard time remembering so, had give him is medication and to take a bath. My grandma had a hard time working so I had to do her dressing on her foot, cook, clean, laundry ect. Having to care for my grandparents made me want to be able to care for others plus lot seniors don't have companions where they just want company and feel wanted/loved. I enjoy bringing joy to seniors to see them happy and laughing. My personal achievement is everything I learned caring for my grandparents and then helping care for my husbands cousin who has autism. Just joy you see in them and what you also learn from them.
