I started caring for family (my grandmother) from there I found a passion is helping others who are in need of a caring hand. Helping others who need extra assistance to stay in their home makes me feel like I'm giving back to others. Being able to keep people home as long as possible is the best feeling for being a caregiver .

What makes makes me a great caregiver is that I am very patient loving caring and responsible. why I became a caregiver is as I was younger I took care of my grandmother and enjoyed spending time with her as she was elderly needed a lot of care and I took my time to take care of her and I enjoyed spending time with her. what I like about being a caregiver is spending time with people that really need the help and will appreciate the time and effort you have done to help their lives as they are not able to do it on their own. A Personal Achievement I am proud of is I helped a gentleman and his name is mr. Scoggins as he needed a lot of help when he came into the facility he was very weak and was not able to move on his own as he got stronger I help them with their being so he was able to move in the wheelchair tell them to move was able to do a lot of arm lifting leg lifting then from there we did the rails where he was able to do sitting sitting up with help with the rails and then then slowly he went to move into walking across the rails I think that was one of the biggest achievements on myself and him working hard together to get a little stronger as the days went on.
My mother worked as a nurse from as early as I can remember until her retirement during the 1970's. I was drawn to the medical field but never became a nurse. I worked in various jobs from surgery, radiology, pharmacy and finally emergency room admissions. In January 1998 my brother-in-law in Lubbock, TX passed away leaving my sister without a primary care giver. We moved her to our home in Harlingen, TX. She was 100% bed ridden after twenty years of progressive Muscular Sclerosis. I had excellent home care workers for her during the hours that I worked outside of the home. Her nursing care was provided by a company that our physician recommended. Many were good but two were outstanding. They taught me about skin care, catheter care, diet, medication and even forms of exercise that my sister could do with one arm. Her Social Worker through the State of Texas worked closely with me to get the equipment we needed to transfer her from the bed to a special wheel chair or her shower chair. She got us approved to have our bathroom renovated to a handicap shower. As I learned, I then instructed the home care givers to make sure that my sister had the best possible care.
The good thing about being a caregiver is that you get to interract with people, you get to know them well , when i decided to become a caregiver was when my mom passed away , days before her being in the hospital i had to take her to the restroom , help her take a bath , go shopping by myself because she couldnt walk that much , make food even though when that happened i was only 15 or 16 years old , i was young but i would always help anybody that needed help. I am proud of myself because i didnt know how people felt until i came across helping others .
I'm a loving and caring father I help take care of my mother and grandmother I visit them daily just to check up on them making sure that they are ok and seeing if there is anything they need help with i take them to the store to pay their food and even help clean up around the house not to mention doing all of the heavy lifting
I am a very outgoing energetic person. I love working with patients and helping them in an way i can. I can give shots, withdraw blood if needed do EKG's and any care a person may require. I really just love to help others and go above and beyond in any aspect of patient care. I am also a great listener and an even better caregiver!
Hello and good day. My name is Elizabeth Ashley Garza. I'm a mother of an amazing 3 yr old. I've always been a people person and I've always loved helping the elderly. They have done so much for us so why not take care of those who molded us to who we are now. They need us more than we know. I would love to help someone in need.
Here i am today a Caregiver who unconditionally loves their job and the many lives I've gotten to make an impact on. I just want to give my Clients the up most care that they deserve and Need. But the reason why I became a Caregiver is because I saw how my grandfather who was cared for in a nursing home , it was ugly. When i left there i vowed to become a caregiver and impact as many lives as i could . Also , I Had already wanted to become a Nurse and i said i wanted to first become a Caregiver to understand and test the waters to see if i could handle the Good, Bad and Ugly. But what i enjoy most about being a caregiver is the Wisdom and smiles i receive as I take care of the ones who need me.
What makes me a great caregiver, would be that I don't just do it for a job but because i enjoy helping people and keeping them company. I do it because i would like someone to do the same for me as i get older. I became a caregiver because I used to work as one for my grandmother and it always put a smile in her face and i thought why not do the same for other people. What i enjoy most about helping other people is the smile they get on their face when they have someone to talk to, to help them with things that they can't do themselves anymore. A personal achievement that I am proud of would be that I am helping people out and it is helping them out to look for the next day.
