About Thomas

I am a dedicated passionate individual who is always trying to think of ways to help and try to always keep an optimistic attitude especially when it comes to the sick or elderly. When I was 14 my grandmother was stricken with Parkinson's disease and then seeing how a beautiful and once independent woman now needed my assistance with everything humbled me and primed me for a lifetime of assisting others. I really enjoy meeting new people and seeing what a difference I can make in their lives. I currently take care of a TBI patient and when all hope was thought to have been lost I was able to get him to eat again as he has dysphagia from the brain injury and eating is one of his biggest challenges but also one of his favorite things to do.

I take care of a traumatic brain injury patient in his home. Aside from cooking and light housekeeping I assist him with bathing oral care dressing undressing taking him to bathroom as needed and all meals and take him to all appointments.

What makes me a great caregiver is how I treat people with the respect and love they deserve. What attracted me to being a caregiver is my mom, i watched other people take care of her so I wanted to give the same love back to others who are in need. What I mostly enjoy about being a caregiver is helping people. A personal achievement I am proud of is how many people I've helped in my lifetime with my caregiving career:)
