I enjoy helping others. I love to help people keep their independence, that is very important to people and I feel they should hold on to that as long as they possibly can. I am a natural nurturer so taking care of others come easy for me. I have taken care of my loved ones all my life and in the work force I have found that it is something I enjoy. I love helping someone accomplish difficult task for themselves, the happiness, excitement and smiles on their faces are priceless to me. I have been a caregiver for a shorter time than others but during the times I have, the families I have interacted with has appreciated me by showing me great respect and trust with their loved ones. I focus on doing for my clients and at the same time I get to know them on a level that is professional but also personal. This is a field that I would stay in for a very long time and feel I will enjoy everyone I come in contact with for years to come. I am currently looking for 24hour shifts 3 days a week back to back during the week with flexibility to move days around if need to. This will best suite my family but give me the opportunity to assist someone else's family. ... more
