Caregiving has always come naturally to me, even as a child I was drawn to caring for others. As a licensed social worker, I have enjoyed a professional career dedicated to caring for others and advocating for the welfare of elders. I am very client centered and believe in a holistic model of care. It is important to me that my clients physical, mental and emotional needs are met with respect and dignity. I am proud of the relationships that I have built with clients and families as a caregiver - it feels wonderful to know that I have made a difference in helping clients to live in their own home and that family caregivers are also supported by my work.
Currently, I am a caretaker in a group home for folks with development disabilities and I really love helping people. I have always been an extrovert and pretty chatty, so having a companion not only benefits the clients life, but mine as well. Being a caregiver seemed like the right job for me because I have such a big heart and love people of all different backgrounds. My favorite part about being a caregiver is seeing how much of a positive inpact I can make in someone else's life. I am proud that at my current occupation, my managers and other staff respect the work that I do and often give me praise. Since I have been there, the clients have began to respect me and follow instructions the more that I earn their trust and respect, and that is something else I am proud of.
I love to help people that need help and make sure they get the proper care. I became a caregiver because i have been helping my father with his diabetes and heart problems for the last 6 years. I started with taking care of my father but now his health is stable. I also, took care of my grandmother who past back in 2011. She was the original reason why im. In school to become a nurse. My personal achievements would have to be taking care of someone that can't help themselves but i can help them and make their lives easier. About me well, im a single parent of a 5 year old little girl. I am currently in school to become a nurse and i love to help people in need.
I've had almost seven years' experience working as a C.N.A. and C.M.A while I've been a full-time college student. Currently, I work full-time through At Home Instead Senior Care. I am also a full-time college student at Kansas State University, I am finishing my last semester and plan to graduate this May. I am moving to Lawrence Ks, at the end of January and I am looking for an available position. I have worked in nursing home, assisted living, and worked for in-home care companies. The last few years I done more private care, and I really enjoy the one on one relationships, it's not only more enjoyable for me, but also for the client. My CPR certificate is up to date, I have worked primarily with the elderly in assisted living facilities, and currently work day shifts. I have also worked as an in-home care giver. I have impeccable references, and have been recognized as a hard worker and team player.
I enjoy helping people and my job is very rewarding. I consider myself to be a very compassionate person. I have eight years of CNA/HHA experience working in a variety of clinical settings. I hope to one day become a nurse practicioner and am currently finishing up a degree in Health Sciences. I enjoy learning about different diseases processes and the treatments available. I love building relationships and trust with people. I have built long lasting relationships with the people I have helped take care of and I will continue to learn and be the best nurse I can be!
I'm a high energy fun going young man that has an never ending desire to help and motivate anyone. I have had the most amazing experience in caring for a transplant list patient and post transplant patient. My experience taught me that following guides and medications is not the most difficult part. Rather making the patient as comfortable as possible in a dark time in their life.
I feel as if I am a great comforter, I have good communication skills, I have had a year of experience as a caregiver and all the resident's I have taken care of along the way have made me more experienced and confident about what I do for them, When I was about 13, I had an elderly neighbor/friend that would come over every day for coffee and to talk with the family, well, he started getting older and weaker and I just always wished I could help him but never knew how until I get a wonderful opportunity in High school for CNA class and I loved it so much that I have never thought about having a different job since. What makes it really worth it is knowing that these people I am taking care of, have families whom I am making very happy along with the residents, I love their personalities and different routines, and becoming friends at the end of the day, and last but not least,I am proud of how many "Thank You's" I hear throughout the day because I honestly do my best to make everyone happy, I am happy that I have become skilled in so many ways of being a CNA.
I have previously worked as a CNA in a nursing facility for over three years. My favorite part of this work was getting to build a relationship while assisting others live their best life. I am a reliable and hard worker who values helping others and making their life the best it can be. Through my experience I have worked with people with varying levels of care needed and I am great at adapting to my surroundings to best meet the needs of care required.
I became a Caregiver because I love to help people. After high school I will be attending Kansas Wesleyan University to study nursing. The thing I love most about being a Caregiver is that I get the chance to brighten someone's day every day, whether it be by playing a game of cards or just by keeping them company. I go into work every day with a smile on my face because I know I get to do what I love. I am currently attending Washburn Rural High School as a senior. I will be graduating in December and after that I plan to get some more work experience before heading off to college in the Fall of 2015. Some of my hobbies include: travel, softball, and board games. I volunteer a lot of my time tutoring in math and mentoring young softball players.
