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.

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.

Hello everyone, I'm a dynamic, fun-loving, compassionate, individual , excited to assist with improving the quality of life of your loved one. I've been a caregiver in the Johnson County area for 10 years and i enjoy what I do! I believe in taking my time and giving each individual quality care that they deserve. Our seniors have dedicated their whole lives to hard work and creating the opportunities that we enjoy today. So it is an honor to give back and return that same dedication. And someday when we all grow in age we'll need someone to care for us. I'm looking forward to meeting and working the families of The Greater Kansas City Area!
I have over five years experience in working as a CNA. It comes naturally when you genuinly love what you do. Providing a safe and comfortable environment. Being a good listener and patience is key. I currently work at a nursing facility and I have a fan base there!! I can tell if I'm away for to long cause they are always asking other caregivers where is Lisa? When is SHE scheduled to return? When I do report to work, I'm always given hugs and words of appreciation. It's a good feeling. Going out of my way for a person is no big deal. It's needed sometimes cause your clients are your family too.
