About Pamela

I started out as a CNA in 1997 & worked in nursing homes until I moved to Indiana in 1999. In 2001, I was hired by a private family to care for elderly parents, who both had health issues, on a live-in basis. I stayed with them until 2003. I moved back to Illinois in 2006 & continued in-home caregiving through agencies & on my own. I prefer the "one-on-one" in the home which allows me to focus my care on one/two clients at a time & I like to treat my clients as if they were my own family members. Over recent years, I've had my own health issues so I am not able to perform as much lifting as I used to but I'm still capable of assistance in many ways. I am also a former veterinary technician so pet care would not be a problem. Live-in is also an option.

I was a Librarian back in the Philippines but when I came to the US in 2006, my friend encouraged me to try working with the elderly as a caregiver. Since then, I have been working as a caregiver and I developed the love and passion in taking care of the elderly. I have experience in taking care.of elderly with different health issues such as Alzheimers, Dementia, diabetis, heart diseases (ie. CHF), Lung or respiratory disease, stroke, cancer, hospice, etc. I assist my residents with their activities of daily living such as bathing, dressing, walking, exercising, etc.. I also do meal preparation , laundry, light housekeeping and medication reminder. I can also assist my Residents with their errands and bring them to their doctor's appointments. I am not only a caregiver to to my Residents but I am also a companion, a friend, a confidant whom they could trust and depend on. I am a responsible person,, loyal and reliable. I stay with my Residents until they terminate my employment. I am proud of being a caregiver because I know I make a difference in the lives of my Residents and I am grateful that most of my Residents that I have taken cared of, including their families, trusted me to be part of the last journey of their lives. My nationality is Filipino and we are known to be the best in caregiving, especially to the elderly.

I had my first job working in a nursing home as a housekeeper in 1997 and I got close to a lot of residents living there, so took the c.n.a course and was explored to a different world.......I've actively been working in the healthcare field for over 17 years.
