More Caregivers You Might Like
I became a caregiver many years ago by volunteering at first at nursing homes. I went on to get licensed so I could do more for others. I like having a job caring for others. I love helping others when they can no longer care for themselves, assisting them makes my job worth while; keeping them healthy and happy is my goal. I used to volunteer at a facility and I had the chance to bond with the elderly, they were in need of companionship and a friendly smile. I've worked in all kinds of situations with the disabled, elderly,sick and hospice patients. I have alot of experience with dementia, hospice, adl's,transferring patients and medications. I love being apart of their lives, I am a compassionate and caring person. I'm most proud of being able to provide the care needed for my sister and my mothers passin along with many others . I'd consider myself to being a self motivator. Very energetic and an overall happy person. I'm very dedicated to my clients. I live a good life and i'm always happy to help others live best they can. I have alot of patience and empathy. I've experienced alot in my own life that use to help me with my job if caring for others. I like to keep busy but can also sit and just listen . I also continue to do in services and trainings to learn new skills and keep my skills sharp.
I am a happy and funny person,upbeat,like to sing. I am sensitive and listen well. I can usually come up with good ideas on making something easier to do or more efficient. I'm gentle. What attracted me to home care was all my family and friends telling me how good I would be at it. So tried it with a part time help with a lady with dementia/alzheimer's, her daughter saw how great I was with her mother and hired me full time. From there I learned so much.She would get confused sometimes angry even sad, we worked together to figure it out, her and I . That's where compassion and patience comes in. I Started taking care of a child w/cerebral palsy part time as well. What I enjoy about being a caregiver is knowing I'm helping someone's life to be a little easier,keeping them comfortable and hopefully a little laughter and a smile is really great. Knowing I have made a difference means a great deal. I have had many great achievements in this line of work. One of them was when a client was starting to have a stroke, I caught it quickly and my training from several weeks back with the Red Cross on Abuse and Neglect, First Aid and CPR came rushing back and I just went into action. Once the ambulance was there and one of the other employees told them all I did, They said I did everything right! I did a good job! Wow,that felt great and was thankful I somehow remembered all I had learned. I didn't even realize what I had done till I heard them saying it, but most of all, she(my client) was ok. I have worked with 6-7 different senior's and 3 young adults within last ten years. I have gone through drug screening and willing to again for any client your cost. That sums up some of me,any questions let me know.
