About Angela

I am a great caregiver because I'm dependable and I have patience, respect and compassion for others. I became a caregiver because I enjoy helping others and being a caregiver gives me a sense of purpose. What I enjoy most about being a caregiver is providing support for those in need of it as well as generally being around seniors. As a small child I gained immense knowledge and understanding from the Seniors in my life and have always enjoyed hearing their stories of their life experiences and all the knowledge they have to share with others. A personal achievement I am proud of is saving a small child from an abusive situation who was living with a close relative of mine. The decision to save the child was easy but having to report on this close relative was not. I will always protect my fellow man especially those who are not capable of helping themselves.

I completed my bachelor's degree in psychology from Webster University in 2001. Upon graduation I have worked with adults suffering from both mental/physical disabilities for 20 years. I was a case manager for a social work agency for most of those years. I have received extensive training in CPR, First Aid, Medication tech., as well as specialized training in mental health and neurological disorders such as Depression, Schizophrenia, and Dementia/ Alzheimer's disease. In addition, I completed a caregiving training course which provided further education and instruction in caregiving activities including assistance with grooming/hygiene care, transferring/mobility challenges, and toileting., and companionship. I did receive my caregiver certification upon my completion of this training course. I have worked in private home health care for approximately 4 years now, and am able to provide references upon request. I am passionate about my work, and often develop very positive snd strong relationships with both my clients and their families. I feel that I was born with natural caregiving ability, and have always felt very drawn to, and personally fulfilled by, this type of work.

I would say that my love for what I do is what makes me a great care provider. I like to get to know my clients, and listen to their live stories. I became a Caregiver because I believe that it enables me to make a difference in people lives. I believe the best way to show care is to give care. I like being a Caregiver because it enables me to meet a lot of new people and make a positive change in their lives. A personal achievement for me is the fact that I wake up everyday trying to be a better person than I was yesterday.
