About Courtney

Hello, I'm Courtney!! I have significant knowledge in the proper implementation of treatment plans and hospital procedures. I learned these throughout my clinical experience in Nuclear Medicine. I spent 3/4 days out of the week in the hospital, and I sincerely enjoyed it. I strive to be around my patients. I am a patient-focused individual, skilled in guiding individuals through potentially stressful situations/tests, I turned to Carelinx, knowing I can potentially help someone, through caregiving. I did this once before and that is where I originally discovered I wanted to work in the hospital (go to school for Nuclear Medicine), and help people. My exceptional communication and interpersonal skills enable me with the ability to quickly establish positive rapport with patients. I have a proven track record of success throughout my career due to my meticulous attention to detail and strong work ethic. I pride myself in always exceeding objectives to ensure the comprehensive comfort and education of the patient. I am now positioned to bring my combination of self-motivation, strong work ethic, and education to a challenging new position within the caregiving community. In addition to my professional attributes, I can offer you the following personal qualifications: * A patient-centered philosophy rooted in the nursing process with attention to assessment, planning and implementation of the highest quality patient care and safety. * A positive, compassionate, eager to learn individual, effective at communicating with my patients, and accepting feedback/direction. * Exceptional motivation and the capacity to work productively. Realizing that this summary cannot fully communicate the benefits I can provide your loved ones, I would appreciate the opportunity to visit with you, personally. Thank you

$16.00/hour · Evanston, IL
Hi! My name is Malawi, I am 20 years old and I have been a certified caregiver for 5 years, I've had 2+ year clients that still reach out to me if they need anything. I am reliable in all aspects, I am respectful, and I love to help and encourage people. I love to laugh, I'm very kind and calm, and organized. I took French for 6 years. I love musical theatre and movies. I was first encouraged to become a caregiver from always loving the feeling of helping my grandparents and being someone they know they can rely on. I became a babysitter when I was 13 and I babysat 3 different families for 2+ years. In March 2016, I became a caregiver for a family friend named Sandra, I stayed with her during chemo therapy appointments, help her heal wounds, exercise, talk and laugh, I recorded her blood sugar daily, e-mailed doctors for her, helped her with mail and any business she needed done such as paying bills, filled her pill box weekly - and I still communicate with her to this day. I love being a caregiver because it reminds me that I am a genuine person and I care about others as much as myself esp. in this career. I love to talk or just simply help. I am always alert and ready to prevent bad situations because I have experience with helping someone with a broken foot and diabetes as well. I am proud of always solving problems for my clients and keeping them comfortable and happy.
