About Shawnte

I bring empathy and compassion. Working with people in a home care setting, it is essential that a I feel the desire to want to help. By showing both empathy and compassion I will let the person know they are cared for and that I want to do what I can to help them. I also have patience. When you work with someone who needs home care it is important that you are patient and understanding. It helps to sometimes put yourself in the other person's shoes and see what it might be like to ask people for help. I am reliable. A great caregiver is someone that can be counted on to be there. Those needing home care services need a reliable and dependable caregiver. I am trustworthy. Most people who need home care services are in a vulnerable position. They are inviting someone into their home to be near their valuables. A good caregiver is someone who is trustworthy in this regard, as well as in being trusted to keep the client's information confidential. Flexible. As with most things in life, home care needs may change and unexpected events can happen. A good caregiver will be prepared to go with the flow, being flexible, so that they continue to provide good home care, even if a rigid schedule isn't being followed.

I have worked with mainly elderly patients in ophthalmology for 32 years. I have become very close to to alot of my patients. I became close friends with an elderly neighbor who had no family in this country. I took her to her doctor appointments and was with her when she passed away. I am still very close to some of the patients who I worked with. I have helped with my mother's care when I have visited her in Florida where she lives with my sister. She requires help walking and also showering. She and I love to play cards! I am also a CASA volunteer.
