The most reason I become a Caregiver, because I grow up with my grandma, as part of our culture and custom, living in extended family. I get use to their personal needs and learn a lot from their knowledge and wisdom, which now a days new generation despise their precise deep experience in life. I'm proud to be a caregiver because its in my blood, living together with elderly under one roof. I do respect and adore them.
I worked as a caregiver for more than 15yrs. I can do most of everything like bathing, cleaning, hair done, medication, transferring, use hoyer lift and much more. I took care a wonderful elderly lady she was 113 years young. She passed away on the 29th of July 2015. I believe she is the oldest person in the Monterey Peninsula. I have the most experience from this gorgeous lovely lady. My name is Adriana,and I have been working as a caregiver for 10 years,either independently or in a company.I love working as a caregiver because I can provide quality help to my clients from the comfort of their homes.If I can make their life easier and give them happiness on this stage of their lives,than I know I'm doing my work right.After many years of being a mom,I decided to go back to school and I have finish my medical assisting training,and I also took some baking classes at my community college.I still need to to do my internship,meanwhile I need to work,My hobbies are many:Love to read,swim,like to go on hikes and my favorite, spend time with my family.

I have been in the home care business since 2009. Currently i work as nurse assistant (CNA)which I have gained experience in the care of patients with stroke, dementia, Alzheimer's, clients recovering from open heart surgery, clients with hip replacement, knee replacement, many type of cancers, diabetic, and clients with Hospice (comfort care), or just a companion. I have worked with some local home care agencies and families that require background checks, fingerprints, and all other necessary documents to work as a certified caregiver in the state of CA.
Families employ me to assist when needing those extra set of hands to help with everyday things to staying with family members that need hands-on care such as bathing, assistance with dressing as well as companionship and running errands. I own a car with a clean drivers license. I have excellent references. I am a committed, loyal person with sound judgment and high ethics.
I learned a lot about how to care for them, communicate with them , keeping them happy and treat them with dignity.
I love helping people in need and it's a very rewarding job because unlike most other jobs, I'm actually appreciated for the work I do and it feels good to be appreciated by the people I care for .
