I am 20 years old, wife, and mother of a 2 year old. I worked at a DD home for 7 months and took care of 8 individuals. I took care of my sister in law that has severe epilepsy for 3 years. I love taking care of people because there are so many things you can get from it; such as hearing the different stories told by individuals from when they were younger, learning new things, getting to see the world from their perspective and i enjoy laughing and creating a family like relationship with the individual.
I'm Very out going, down to earth kind of person, Love to clean, cook, help out a person that needs help, where help is needed. I have helped with loved ones, cleaned house, bathed people, and just been a listening ear for someone to talk. I started doing home care with my family first, I have been doing it for 19 years now while im living in the home with my parents. The most that i enjoy about being a care giver is that you get to meet different people and also see their smiling faces when you get to their house. I extremely proud of the person i have become due to learn alot of different people that i have came in contact with through out life so far.
It all Started when I was very young, I was 5 and Started To realize my mom's balance wasnt like the other kids mom's. It was just my mom and I, so I instinctively helped her as much as a 5 year old could. As I got older she got worse, and I could help more. That's exactly what I did. She ended up being misdiagnosed with polyneuropathy in the mid 90s. She got worse over the years, and eventually could not walk at all. In 2008-09 we found out she had a tumor growing all throughout her spinal cord. which was in fact the cause of why she was losing and eventually lost the ability to walk at all. She can't feel her legs and feet, or anything below the belly button. She ended up getting bed sores, so I change her wound dressings daily, and a nurse comes one day a week. She takes pictures of her progress. I have experienced with the wound vac, and right now we just use silver nitrate and barrier cream, and flip her on her sides for two hours. This is the second time she's had these sores so they won't ever heal fully. I used to get paid by seiu (doors) to be her caregiver but they cut her off for her assets. So I still take care of her and do everything the same 7 days a week any way. I am fully qualified, I run arrends, prepare meals, clean, so laundry, bathe her and just tend to her needs.
I am 27 years old. I have been in the health care field since I was 18. I have a significant amount of patient care experience, not only in the hospital setting but in home health care as well. I am very passionate about what I do, and I strive tremendously on helping other people. I am very dependable, trustworthy, and reliable with an incredible worth ethic. I always go above and beyond when making sure each patient gets the care they need and deserve.
I am 21. I have a huge heart for helping people. I especially love helping out senior citizens. I am very nice to have around and I'm easy to get along with. I took care of my grandma when she became ill and I took care of her until she passed away. I love just being able to help people in any way I can.
I am very loving and compassionate person. I became a caregiver while in high school and I love everything about what I do. I love the fact that I get to help others and I love the time that I am able to spend with those individuals it's amazing!
