My name is DeAushia but I go by De. I am very outgoing and bubbly. I tend to smile A LOT and always laughing. I feel I would make a great caregiver because I not only have a little bit of nursing background and caregiver experience but I am very hardworking, currently in school to further my knowledge and education. I really miss working with people face to face and helping people in their home. i really enjoy being a caregiver because not only does the family feel more comfortable in their home, they are more likely to adjust better in my opinion. My personal achievement that I am proud of is getting into the Bachelors Program for integrative health.
My role as a caregiver initially started when I was 17. My Grandmother broke her hip and I lived with her to help her live independently in her own home again. This was not a paid position but one out of love and respect for my grandmother. 13 years later she was my Maid of honor, danced down the aisle at my wedding, at the age of 87. I've always enjoyed working with people in various stages of their lives. About 4 years ago, I became very ill and after 3 hospitalizations, I was transferred to a nursing home for a month. I had to learn to walk again. That experience reminded me of seeing various emotions of my grandmother when I was 17. However, this time it was me that was in her shoes, except I was at the mercy of strangers. I now understood the roller coaster of emotions that my grandmother verbalized. I made many friends in my stay at the nursing home. It was actually very sad when I left. My friends I made there wanted me to stay and work there....both clients and staff. That was when I decided to become a caregiver to help others continue to live independently in their own homes. I love what I do. I know my clients enjoy my presence in their lives. And that feeling has no price tag.
I love being there and caring for people, I prefer being there to assist someone and making them feel better and stronger. What I enjoy most about caregiving is helping someone with their independence, making someone feel better about themselves and just helping someone have a better grateful day. My personal trait that I'm proud of is being able to put in all my effort to make someone's day beyond better, whatever it is I need to do for someone I'm there to do the most I am able to.

Graduating in the spring of 2018 with my masters of accounting and degree in real estate. I am going to be taking a full-time job in Des Moines that requires me to live there for 12-18 months. Currently searching for live-in position where I could help around house with cleaning, cooking, errands, and anything else in exchange for board or reduced rent. I have previously been a nanny, provided in-house help, and am an efficient worker. Enjoy spending time with people and am a person of faith.
I'm a very compassionate member of the nursing home team. I care for the residents thoroughly and build trusting relationship to make the residents feel as comfortable as possible during their stay at any facility. I consider myself a hard worker and a quick learner of people and what they expect to make there cares to their own liking. Especially considering I work well with my employees.
I am a loving, gentle person, who loves children and the elderly. I like to be a companion and listen and talk. I love going for rides or just enjoying a nice time sitting outside. I have 2 grown children of my own and 3 grown boys of my fiance's and together we have eight grandchildren. And we love them all. I love to work and be helpful
