I am a great caregiver because I sincerely enjoying working with elderly people, and people with disabilities. The experience I have in caring for your loved one is: Compassion, companionship, patience, home management, meal preparation, errands, appointments, grocery shopping, medication reminders, maintaining a safe environment, assisting with bathing, dressing, and grooming.
I am very passionate, and committed about what I do, as I feel the importance to treat seniors, the way I will one day want to be treated. Having empathy.
I enjoy learning from the seniors I have been with, talking with them, and hearing their stories. Many of times, its never been a dull moment. I know the importance of a senior keeping their independence for as long as they can. Also, it's important to maintain their confidentiality, and be aware of their rights. I became a caregiver when I started taking care of an elderly great aunt. I am a compassionate, reliable, fun , and loving. I am a mom, grandmother, friend and caregiver.
I first became a caregiver in 1995, after the loss of a family member and close friend. I have worked in group homes, one on one, senior care, and private duty. I have been trained in Florida, Indiana and Tennessee. I can pass a level 2 background. I have First Aid/ CPR, and a clean driving record.
I feel honored to be a caregiver. I am honored to be trusted with families loved ones. I treat each client like I would my own my family.
I enjoying seeing my client reach even the smallest of goals. I like cheering them on and assisting them to reach for the stars.
In 2003 I worked with a male legally blind, and he only crawled. The mother was told he would never walk, and never see. We found a specialist 2 hours away who made a special lens for my buddy and when he put those glasses, he looked at me and said I see you. My buddy also learn learned to walk with assistance. This was one of my biggest accomplishments.
I am a great caregiver because, I am compassionate, trustworthy, dependable, i am a great listener, i am a people person, and i respect their religion and their political status.
I become a caregiver back in 1985, i know that caring is my passion so i went ahead and got certified as a CNA, HHA, & PCA.
I become a caregiver simply because i offer love, undivided attention and great companionship.
What i like mostly about being a caregiver is definitely the opportunity to express my passion directly to my clients.
i get first hand to help them look and feel better about themselves, because i am also a licensed Esthetician and nail technician,
so i give them manicures and pedicures, partial foot massage (if they are not diabetic) i give a relaxing facial too. I apply makeup and
shampoo and roller set hair if they so desire.
I have a few personal achievement that i am proud of, but the one that stands out to me, is the day i got my Certificate in the mail
and got hired in an Assisted Living Facility.
Over all i have great experience and superb references. Looking forward to working with you or your love one.
