Care giving comes naturally to me, I have a passion for the elderly as well as children and believe that they deserve the best care and companionship available. I have had a lot of experience caring for an elderly relative that suffered from dementia and acquired skills that can be helpful towards others in need of care. I am patient, kind, good sense of humor, college educated and can provide a loving environment for those I work with. I have seen over the years that people take for granted the elderly, they believe that once they reach a certain age being sent to a nursing home and seldomly seen is th e way to go. However, I do not believe that. It is my belief that they deserve to be treated with kindness, respect, and taken care of the way they deserve. Another thing that sets me apart from other caregivers is that I have seen bad care and I make it my mission to give the best care possible. I will do whatever it takes to give the best care possible. I would love the opportunity and experience to work with someone that needs help and make a true difference in their lives. ... more

Caregiver

Anna Thompson

Dec 2011 - Dec 2012

I had taken care of my elderly grandmother for some time. She had suffered from dementia as well as other disabilities. We did daily activities together to keep her mind going for as long as possible and it was an amazing experience to be able to help someone you love. After this and attending college for Psychology, I knew I had found my passion of working with the elderly.
