I love being a caregiver because it gives that time to make them smile. I have a passion for caring for geriatric patients. I've been doing this for almost 9 years and I have loved it every since. You have to have patience and remember they are special people. I have had several residents call me names and at first it hurt my feelings but then I was sat down and explained the generation I'm taking care of isn't use to me being all smiley and friendly. I then started looking at them as children because demintia is basically taking them back into a child like setting and I love kids!!

I have a mother with Alzheimer's and a father with dementia and mobility issues that went had a serious surgery that I helped him through. Having had these experiences with them, I was drawn to helping other families with their loved ones. I have no job experience yet because I'm just getting started, but am patient, understanding, knowledgeable with working with seniors having provided care to my parents. I am an educator of 22 years and am looking for part time hours taking care of seniors, being a companion, and am able to do light housekeeping and run errands.
I was raised by my grandparents and have a special place in my heart for seniors. I like the feeling I get from helping others. I am proud of putting myself through college unfortunately I can't find work in my hometown with my chosen profession. I am going back to college in April for the nursing program and hope this job opportunity will be a good fit for me.
