I am a healthy, active, strong 47 year old woman. I have worked in an assisged living facility, a hospital, and a rehab facility. I have also done a lot of private duty. My longest assignment was caring for a quadriplegic man. I have raised three daughters, so I understand children as well.
Hello! I'm currently looking for a part-time position caring for older adults. I have seventeen years of experience in the medical field working in Family Medicine, Internal Medicine, and OB/GYN doctor's offices. Some of my skills include CPR, basic first aid, patient care, and measurements of blood pressures and vital signs. I am caring, compassionate, and have a friendly bedside manner. I enjoy working with people to improve their mental and physical health; to help them achieve their goals for a healthy lifestyle and the care they need. I find people to be very interesting, but more so elderly people who have already lived and done so much in their lives. I take pride in the accomplishments I have achieved over the past seventeen years as a Medical Assistant while working in Family Medicine, Internal Medicine and OB/GYN. During my most recent job, I ran a team with thirteen providers, providing them with administrative and medical assistance. I also trained my co-workers who were interested in doing GYN, skin lesion and cyst removal procedures.
I really enjoy working in a home environment, I understand personal space with clients, knowing when to be helpful but to also step away. I've always been very trustworthy and a good team player. Communication and a sense of humor is a big part of caregiving to me. I enjoy listening to clients and what they have done in their lives. My biggest personal achievement was taking care of my mother when she was failing, and being with her when she passed away.
I've been a Certified Life & Wellness coach since 1996. After moving to Maine, I opened my private practice in Yarmouth. And started volunteering at ME Handicapped Skiing (now ME Adaptive Sports & Recreation), & with disabled veterans. For reasons beyond my personal control, I had to close my private practice. So I decided to use my skills serving others in a different capacity, this time focusing on the elderly population in Maine as well as Hospice service. I started as a caregiver with 3 different agencies in the Portland area. After 2 yrs, I 'down-sized' to two agencies in order to get certified as a CRMA. Quite often I am asked to start the service with a new client. Several times family members of a 24X7 client requested for me to be the primary caregiver and to coordinate the day to day client needs. In fact, it was commented that "when Maria is out, things really don't go well. As soon as she's back, everything flows so smoothly." My biggest personal achievement was to be selected "VNA's caregiver of the Year 2016". Ive becobecextended famiky to my elderly clients and hospice patients, as they have become to me. I'm honored & feel priviledged to serve my clients/patients at end of life as well as providing respite for family members and guiding them throughout the weeks/days before & after losing a loved one. My life's journey has taken me all over the world. I speak numerous languages, have lived on several continents, learned skiing at 47, ballroom dance competitor at 49, certified diver at 52., and now plan to get my private pilot's license by my 70th Birthday. Having supported my husband and only son during their cancer journeys, I learned that we cannot take anything for granted in life. We must find our own way of living life to the fullest each and every moment. I'm grateful for all the people who have touched my life. Each and every one has been a gift to me as I have been a gift to them. I hope to touch many more lives.
I have been in the care field for the past ten years. I have worked with many populations including folks with developmental disabilities, dementia, brain trauma, mood disorders and schizophrenia. I have worked with all ages except for children (professionally). Art is my main passion and I have made art since my childhood, but as far as job positions, I have always found care jobs. Care is natural for me, I strive to honor the people I care for and am able to build a rapport quite quickly. My biggest joy about caring for others is that I learn an immense amount about different perspectives, experiences in life and get to connect with people that are often cast aside in our youth and perfection obsessed culture. An achievement; when I can truly apply the depth of care and respect that I give to people I help, to myself, that feels like an achievement for where I am right now in life. Helping people become or remain as independent as possible no matter how small a task, is also quite a good feeling.
First and foremost I'm a mommy to a beautiful little girl. I am patient, compassionate and I listen to each individual need. There is something special about being able to care for someone else's loved ones, I feel privileged to have the opportunity to provide a service that others cannot. I have ample experience working in a whole range of scenarios from 1:1 in home to facility. I have the proper training to care for those with physical and memory care issues. This is my calling, it's what I love to do.
I have always had a compassionate and caring personality, even in my group of close friends, I was known as the "Mom" figure. I always strive to do my best to make sure others are happy and healthy and care for others. I find great joy and fulfillment in seeing others happy and assisting in any way I can. My ultimate goals are to get back into Childcare as I finish my BA in Early Childhood Education and hopefully open up my own preschool some day. I have are experience with both very young children and infants as well as adult care and senior care.
