I became interested in care giving because my Mom was in an automobile accident which left her paralyzed & my sister-in-law was in an automobile accident which left her with a brain injury. I was my mom's main caregiver from age 17 until I was married at age 22 & again when she moved in with me for the last 5 years of her life. She had bladder cancer. I became a caregiver in Greenwood because I really enjoy helping people to be able to live at home without having to live in a nursing home. I promised my mom she would never have to live in a nursing home, and she never did. It wasn't easy but it was worth it. I prefer not to bath & dress only because I have had to do this for my mom most of my life and it's never been easy, it was something I did because it needed to be done, but if I get to know the person and they need help every once in awhile, I will do anything to help them. I was with 2 of my clients until they passed away, even thought it wasn't in my "job description", their families allowed me to visit them. It wasn't easy, but I know they appreciated it and it made it worth it. I prefer the one on one attention I can give when working with an individual in their home.

My Name is Pearlie, I have always had the caretaker trait since I was around 10 years old. I was the grandkid that wanted to stay in the house and help my grandmother take care of my granddad and the person that want a babysitting job in the summer to help out the family. It make me feel good to do for others when the can't or have no one to help them complete their daily living duties. I'm a medical assistant and Certified Nursing Assistant and would like to get back into the CNA side to have more hands on taking care of people again that is my passion.
I became a caregiver because I enjoy helping people. What I like about being a caregiver isthat you never know how a person is feeling and when you come through the door their whole day just brightens up. A personal achievement I am proud of is having my same client for a year & a half now & he doesn't want anyone else but me, that's how I know im doing my job right. I'm a very caring & understanding person. I've been working with elderly people for 11yrs now & I wouldn't trade it for anything.
I became a caregiver because I love helping people. I like being able to help the elderly live with some independence in their life. One of my achievements was to receive an A in my CNA class.

Hello there! My name is Michelle and I have been caring for someone since I was in the 10th grade. (Years ago) I moved in with my grandmother, she had been a widow for about 3 years. She was suffering from depression, breathing issues and I know many more health issues that later claimed her life. Her living conditions weren't the best and she totally refused to go to the doctor. I arranged for her to move into an apartment which she enjoyed for about 2 years. I never thought that I would be working in this field. I originally went to school for administration careers. But to see their faces light up when you please them is why I continue to work in this field. Plus I have the satisfaction of knowing that care was administered properly. I have worked with the elderly, as well as, individuals with special needs. Very willing and ready to meet your families needs.
I became a caregiver at 14 for my grandmother and grandfather, and I fell in love with the work I was doing. After that, I realized that what I wanted to do for the rest of my life was to take care of and help those in need.

I also have experience in the following things: Home Health (5+yrs) All stages of AD (5yrs) Schizophrenia (2+yrs) Mental Disabilities, Behavioral Problems and the alike (5yrs) I believe I would be a great addition to the team.
I became a caregiver because it fufills my heart, mind , and soul. I get great satisfaction knowing that I can help keep a person safely and comfortably in their home. Meeting new people and their families has given me a lot of knowledge to use for the next job I am fortunate to receive. My years of experience have taught me to have patience and compassion for each person because everybody is different in their own way. I have raised an incredible teenager who is thriving in life. One of the things I am most proud of is that I took care of my mother who was dying of lung cancer. I was the best advocate for her that I could be. I kept her safe and comfortable to live out the last days of her life. I have done a little of everything in the medical field. I have worked in the ER, assisted living, home health and hospice and live in private duty. When I am not working I enjoy reading, camping, and spending time with my family.
