As a Candystriper many years ago, I gravitated toward the elderly. As a nursing student (I didn't not complete), I found that it was the elderly that needed that one-on-one, extra time spent, relationship. While in college, I provided home care/companion care, and have on and off for the past 35+ years. I've had a myriad of clients with different concerns and at various stages of health. I spent two days w/my father-in-law while he was in hospice, and was present at his passing, calling TOD. I enjoy doing for others, providing them w/care and companionship while allowing family members to take a much-needed break. An "achievement" that I'm most proud of is giving a client back some semblance of pride. Though she suffered from dementia, she could still communicate and read. Her abject fear was to be alone and trapped. I made a sign that was at the foot of her bed that reminded her that she was never alone and that someone was always there. The sign had velcro dots, and each caregiver had a small sign w/their name on it that could be affixed for their shift. She was able to call us by name when she became panicked, fearing that she was alone (even though someone was always in the next room). When she sat at the dining room table eating her meal and because she didn't have the strength to push herself away from the table, she would fret that she was trapped and couldn't relax enough to enjoy her meal. I made a little tent card that had a picture of a dining table and chair, and it said "you have the power to move back from the table because we will help you". Both signs made a huge difference in her life...something so simple, yet so powerful.
I am a very caring and lovable person. I enjoy helping others the best that i possibly can. When i was younger I use to go to work with my step mom who was a CNA and i enjoyed being able to make a diffrrence in the residents lifes. The thing I enjoy the most about being a caregiver, is that i actually get to take time out of my day to meet new people and put a smile on others faces. I am most proud of the fact that i get to wake up knowing I am being the best mom I can be and also being the vest CNA that I Can be.
I believe im a great caregiver because I have a very big heart and also love helping others. Im a very friendly person and a hard worker. I have excellent communication skills and excellent time management, cleaning and organization skills. I started in the healthcare field in 2015 working through Pathways Inc. I wanted to become a caregiver because I enjoy making a difference in peoples lives and have a lot of knowledge in this field. Also I feel I am making a difference in the family/seniors lives by being able to provide consistency and compassion.
I'm a mom to a 13 year old boy. I've been in the medical/caregiving field for 11 years since I Graduated highschool. I've always wanted to work with and help people since I was young. I went to BOCES for Medical Assistance for 2 years and Graduated. I'm very compassionate, calming and peaceful person.
I have been giving care for 10+ years and exclusively the last 5 years. I have a variety of skills and experience and am always willing to learn more so I can ensure your loved one is getting the best care possible. I have done simple companion care with a client who can still fully function but just needs some help to hospice- bedridden care and worked with nurses who come into the home, gone on Doctors appointments, done therapy and prescribed exercises, etc. But it's not just the medical care I provide- I also can make an excellent homecooked meal (not really into too much of the processed and junks foods so if you really want healthy good cooking- I'm your girl), keep a clean environment (no cross-contamination) a great listener, sing, play music and really try to have a good time with the person I am caring for. Does your loved one like certain activities? Then it's a priority for me to make them happen. Whether it's to go to a senior center and participate in an activity or do something at home- music, reading, catching up on a show they like, puzzles, games, taking a walk- I'm flexible and very open to doing what they love and to keep doing at long as we can so your loved one enjoys life to the fullest. Lastly, I keep you updated on anything and everything you want to know about the care being given. Often I get to the point where I can anticipate a need and will work with you to ensure the quality of care and comfort is never compromised when possible.
I always loved taking care of my grandpa Zeke. He had COPD and I had to put his medicine in his breathing machine and get him water when he needed it when I slept over. I choose to help my grandma because I loved helping any way I could. My grandma lives in an apartment building for the elderly and I always when I go help all the ladies out with cleaning or just being there to talk about the apartment gossip. I love caregiving because it gives me a sense of satisfaction of doing something good that I think is fun and very rewarding. I am a good listener, respectful, kind, caring, thoughtful of others, loving, and I absolutely love to help people. I graduated this past year in 2018 when I was supposed to graduate in 2019. I graduated a whole year early because I wanted to get into the work that I enjoy and love which is to help people and give them the care they need.
I truly enjoy being around the elderly I grew up with my grandma living with me with Alzheimer's as a child and I always wanted to help in anyway I could. Taking care of people is truly something from your heart. I like to help make a difference in their life to reassure them everything will be ok.
I am self driven self motivated, strong interpersonal, written and verbal communication skills. I find caring for others very satisfying and fulfilling. I have a reputation for excellence and high quality service for my residents and family members. Highly creative and innovated; willing to learn skills and techniques. My favorite part of being a care giver is helping the people feel safe secure and cared for, and allowing the families to find peace and happiness knowing I can take some of the responsibility off their shoulders. I am most proud of the diverse levels of care I have learned from companionship to hospice care.
