I became a caregiver because I have always enjoyed helping people and find it rewarding. What I like about being a caregiver is knowing that I can make a difference in someone's life and the lasting relationships I build with those I care for. The personal achievement I am proud of allowing this field to inspire me to go back to school as a Medical Assistant to make this my career. Besides currently going to school as a Medical Assistant, I have been a caregiver for those with special needs for ten years. I have an Associates degree in Biology and am a Certified Phlebotomy Technician.
I am originally from New York and am of Italian descent. I am married to a retired U. S. Navy man and therefore have some basic knowledge and appreciation of the military. I have been in the healthcare field for the last 21 years and switched over to Home Health in 2005. I really enjoy helping people with their health needs, especially those who cannot do for themselves, such as the disabled or elderly. Most of my patients have been the elderly suffering from dementia or Alzheimers. However, I have also cared for a couple of centenarians who simply needed companionship and occasional errands done for them. I am a very friendly and outgoing person who is also very neat and clean.
I started caregiving at the age of 25 and I am now 35 and still in the home health industry. I love taking care of the elderly. I have almost 11 years experience with the elderly. I have worked with many different kinds of patients. I love that I can do the things for them that they can no longer do anymore, and just to see their smiling faces everyday when I show up to work. Knowing that I can make a change in their day to day lifes makes my heart rejoice.
I'm a kind and caring person who loves to help anyone that I can. I love life and being able to put a smile on someone face. I'm reliable and a hard worker. I have 17 year's of experience I have worked with patients with dementia,congestive heart failure, hospice care,stroke and much more.I'm a very trustworthy person. So I'm looking to give you a piece of mind while caring for your love one.
I have an outgoing personality. I smile a lot and like to get others to smile back. I like to talk to patients, get them to tell stories of happy times. I am attentive to a patients needs. I am patient, physically fit and can stay awake as long as needed. I have determination and a don't quit attitude. Two years ago for my 50th Birthday, I hiked 1100 miles on the Appalachian Trail.
i worked as a special needs caregiver for 3 and a half years. the home closed and i began looking for another job. there wasnt anything in that area available. at home health care called me and asked if i would be willing to work with the elderly. i have worked for 1 and a half years with the elderly. it has been awesome. it is hard to lose people you have been caring for. however, i am so blessed to have known them and help care for them. i am down to one client and need more work. i am looking forward to to meeting new friends. i specialize in the nastiest homes and the most difficult people. i look forward to hearing from you.
I started taking care of the elderly when I was 17 and I am now 45. I have worked in the medical field my whole life. It is all I want to do. I love to take care of other people. Over the last 28 years I have dealt with many types of people and have never met a stranger or a problem that I could not deal with. I am a Certified Medication Aide as well as a Certified Nurse Aide. They say when you love what you do at work that you never really worked at all. That is me.
I believe the qualities that make me a great caregiver are patience, compassion and attentiveness. These qualities are essential in assisting a patient at their bedside in their time of need. As stressful it can be for someone who no longer has the physical ability they once had, there needs to be someone who is understanding and empathetic to their desires to ensure comfort. My interest in becoming a caregiver comes from being the one my grandparents call on for help. I strongly believe in giving back to the community and equal effort for all ages of those in stand in the need of care. My enjoyment stems from seeing interacting and seeing my patients smile. I'm proud of the fact that step by step I'm making an impact on my patients as they always ask to see me again. Once I secure the peace of mind in my patients' families hearts and minds, my job is complete.
