Dependable & Honest - Caregivers work with a great deal of independence. A great caregiver must be counted on to be where he or she is required to be on time and prepared as well as to perform required duties in the absence of continuous supervision Compassionate - Great caregivers possess a powerful desire to help others, especially seniors. They are inviting and available even if all they do is listen and provide companionship.
I became a Caregiver because it's always been in my nature to help people. I knew when I was very young that I specifically wanted to work with the older population. I enjoy my job because it allows me to interact with my residents/patients, I learn about them and their lives, and most importantly I get to help them, and I personally love it. Recently, I had a group of CNA students who we're shadowing me. When their clinicals were done, they all got together and got me a card saying how appreciative they were for all my help. I took that to heart because it made me feel like I helped them by showing them the proper protocol to giving great patient care. I'm a 22 year old mother of a very energetic 2 year old. As all of my jobs have required working with the general public, I'm a huge people person and I get along with just about any and everyone. I love cooking, reading, sudoku puzzles, and planting different flowers, vegetables, and herbs.
Old people are my favorites. I somehow connect with them more easily than anyone else. (Not kidding...weird right?) I have professional and years of non professional experience as a geriatric caregiver. I helped both of my grandmothers through the end of their lives. My dad's mom passed at 96 in 2011 and my moms mom passed last Christmas 2017. My professional experience working as a CNA at a nursing home for 6 months was important and amazing but too much work for anyone I know, really. I learned so much and made the deepest of connections with people that no one else seemed to talk to or listen to. I got my CNA certification in high school from a 2 year vocational class so I'm likely more knowledgeable than the average Nurse Aide as this class lasted 2 hours per day for 2 years. (They want me to pay $40 to do the background check)
Hey my name is April I have been a caregiver for going on 10 years I absolutely love helping others. I have tons of references. I am a Certified Nurse Assistant CNA and I'm also CPR and AED certified. I'm married and have 3 beautiful kids. We currently live in Sumrall and go to First Baptist Church.
I have my master's degree in occupational therapy and 2 minors in psychology and geriatrics. I have over a year's experience as a therapist in various nursing homes, swing bed hospitals, and outpatient clinic. I am looking for work as a caregiver while searching for OT jobs in the area so I can continue to use my skills.
I've been working as a caregiver for around 5 years and have enjoyed these times. I have a passion to work and care with/for others, and offering companionship. I have completed numerous trainings throughout these years that has allowed me to continuously succeed within this field. Also, I have completed my Bachelors (Gerontology/Psychology) at William Carey University & currently pursuing my Masters in Social Work.
I try my best to make sure my patients are 100% happy and healthy. What attracted me to caregiving was that my grandmother was diagnosed with copd and I took care of her. I was really disgusted at the way her home health nurse treated her, and from that I decided that I would become a CNA. I don't want anyone being neglected or abused like my grandmother was. What I enjoy most about caregiving is seeing my patients smile. A personal achievement of mine that I am proud of was getting my CNA license.
I always wanted to be a caregiver. Taking care of people has always been a major thing in my life! My mother and grandmother took care of people since I was small. I grew up seeing new people. Seeing the smile on their face is priceless. Some have no family and I just want to be that caregiver where I want to treat them like their family. It doesn't matter about your race,color,none of that. I enjoy listening to their stories and I enjoy making them feel good and making them smile.
