My name is Kristy. I have over 7 years working with Alzheimer's dementia Parkinson and just providing companionship to clients in their home or living facility. I like to live their live through their journey of life. I like to see that smile on their face when they do something that they think they can't do.I started during caregiving when I had to help take care of my grandfather who had Alzheimer's. I have enjoyed it every since. I am a kind person and treat my clients like I would want someone to treat my love one.
I'm sensitive, patient ,Responsible respectful, and very compassionate. I became interested in becoming a caregiver at the age of 18. I knew this was truly my calling because of the joy it gave me. Taking care of my mom as she struggled with dementia gave me a greater compassion to help elderly .my personal achievement is quality-of-life.
I would be a great caregiver because I worked and love my elderly people.. Without them I wouldn't be where I am now. I moved here in NC to help take care of my grandma when I was 12. I've learned lots of things from my grandma..Took care of her til she was 101 years old. My mom and sisters all are in the nursing field and that's what attracted me to being a care giver. The most I enjoy being a caregiver is meeting new people, talking to them and most of all getting to listen to all the stories they lived when they was little. A kind smile or a pat on your back of a job well done.. Not to mention when they ask you Are you coming back ? Is a stamp of approval for me that it was a very good day and a job well done.
I am a mother of three productive adult children. Caring for my grandmother prior to her death gave me a whole new perspective about end of life care. And although it was a short time, it made an impact on me. I like to cook and don't mind cleaning or running errands. Sometimes just spending time with someone who is lonely can really make a difference in their life. One of the things I am most proud of is my participation in the making of a documentary that is now registered in the Library of Congress. I was able to interview Bennett College alumni from 1958. They were lovely ladies to work with.

I had a wonderful experience as a child with awesome grandparents. As I got older and became an adult I cared for each of them at some point. I enjoy listening to their life lessons and respect them for their sacrifices. I have alot of experience with Alzheimers and can listen to the same stories & questions over & over. I like being able to make their day, wether it be reading to them or stopping by Krispy Kreme and bringing them their favorite doughnut. My proudest moment was when I was a caregiver for a stubborn, hard to get along with kind of gentleman. One day his daughter asked him why he loved Wendy so much? And he replied, "because she loves me and doesn't have too." I am happily married to my high school sweetheart of 30 years. We have 2 adult children and 1 grandaughter. I was a stay at home / homeschooling mom for 20 years. We are enjoying our empty nest. I am just happy with life.
I am a mother of three daughters . I have always been taking care of someone. When I was a teen I babysat and in my late teens I took care of my grandmother who was dying of cancer. I have done fill in work for my aunt who use to work as an in home aid caregiver. I have worked for two years in a chiropractic office working with older people. I enjoy being with people and learning from them and being able to help them to live their lives to the best of their abilities. That is what I love about care giving. It is not just a job but a way of connecting to other people and being able to help them and do it for a living. I am proud of being able to raise my daughters because I have been a single parent for the majority of their lives. I obtained my Associates degree while raising them and I am twenty four hours away from receiving my Bachelors degree in Christian Counseling and Caregiving and my daughters are my reason for continuing to get better as a person.
I'm very compassionate toward the elderly. They make me feel needed when I am taking care of them. My mother needed help as her sickness progressed and I knew then that I had to be her caregiver. Their wonderful stories from the past! And the companionship! To have the family and elder to love me as one of their own!!
I am dependable, flexible, reliable, caring and conscientious. I believe each person should be treated with respect, positive encouragement and patience. Each day should be full of fun and a new adventure in the process of living life from day to day because they were created by God and special. I have a love and compassion for the geriatric population and love seeing a smile develop on each of their faces as we work together to make them feel whole and complete. I would like to apply for a job and be able to help seniors in their home. God has given me a special love for the geriatric population. I have 13 years experience as a Licensed Physical Therapist working with them in the skilled nursing facility and continuing care retirement community. I believe people are most happy in their homes where they are secure with their own surroundings.
I have worked in the health care field for 24 yrs I really enjoy working with older ppl they can teach us a lot .. my personality is caring and empathy and passion ,I like to treat older ppl with dignity and respect , and one day if I need someone I hope that they will be kind as well. Sitting with someone and listening to their stories adds so much to your day ,I guess the one thing that I have overcome is them dying , I don't like death, but I can at least deal with it now , it was a big fear but working in this field it does come .
