I think I would be a great care giver because I have experience with care giving. I was employed at a home health care facility and loved going to clients homes and tending to their needs. House keeping, preparing meals, grocery shopping, Dr. appointments etc. I was very good at it too. I am a compassionate person when it comes to caring for ageing adults. I am anxious to begin a new career with CareLinx
Skills & Certifications: Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA)
I'm very passionate and dedicated. I enjoy taking care of others. It's not only a job but it's a job I can be proud of at the end of the day. If I can help just one person I feel like I've accomplished something good. I like listening to their stories. I might be there to help them but at the same time these cars clients have taught me something in return.
Skills & Certifications: Home Health Aide (HHA)
I decided I wanted to be a caregiver when my grandma got dementia and needed help with everything. I would check in on her every other day until my Aunt moved her out of town and put her in a nursing home. Wasn't happy with the care she was receiving and knew I'm more caring and generous than them. I'm understanding and a hard worker. I let my CNA expire but still graduated for it with good grades. I only left Barbs because she died unfortunately. I was sad and upset with the other caregivers because they did not seem to care and talked down to her. But over the last few yrs we have a house directly across the street for brain damaged residents and today I just took one some bday presents and rubbed a cramp out of anothers leg so I wanted to go back to doing it. I'm involved with bible study to better myself and just got cleared as after 2 yrs of blood clots in my brain. I enjoy helping people when I'm capable as and have always gotten along with the elderly. They make me smile with their stories and appreciation. My personal achievement I'm most proud of is that I've been sober since 2008. I worked at a bar and was easily persuaded to stay and drink and got me into trouble. I hope you can see past that because I am a good, loyal, caring, generous, hard working individual.
Hello! My name is Katie and I have been working in the Medical field for over 20 years. I have experience working with patient's that have Alzheimer's, mental illness and intellectual disabilities. I have worked as a CNA in skilled care, long term care, assisted living and patients in the Alzheimer's unit. My passion is to help others and to bring a smile to their faces. I am blessed to have a career in the health care field and a job I love!
I am a very hospitable and caring person by nature. I became most interested in being a care-giver when my own mother needed care because of Alzheimers disease. She lived for 11 yrs with it so I went through every single stage of the disease with her. Although I have office, customer service, retail sales and driving experience, I'm looking to branch out into other careers that are more-suitable for my age (59.) Care-giving is the direction I would like to go! I've been told I have a way of making others feel comfortable (2 of my previous supervisors told me this) and I am very eager to use my skills and naturally calm demeanor to help others. My most proud achievement in life was to raise a son who became a doctor a few years ago!
I think what makes me a great caregiver is that i'm caring, honest, trustworthy and dependable. I'm also a very hardworker. Through my years of job hunting I have worked in a variety of fields such as, janitorial, retail, food and then I worked in a retirement home for a year. Now I'm in the dsp field for coming up on a year and I love it. What attracted me to being a caregiver is when I was in an abusive job, I looked and looked for jobs and finally I came upon dsp work, I started not long after and realized that I loved it. I also have always loved helping people and caring for them. I enjoy mostly the smiles I cause, knowing that they can't help themselves or do it all alone and I can help, that's amazing. One of my personal achievements I've conquered is my health/mental health. I've overcome a not that great health history. As for achievements I would have to say the fact I got my cpr/aed certificate and that I've been working on my medication management certificate through the state of iowa. I would love a chance to be part of a family and to help. I've become very interested in being a personal caregiver but also very open to group homes to. (As that's what I do now aside from hourlys) I hope to hear from you and hope to meet/work with someone great!(:
