My name is Christina. I currently live in Raeford and I grew up in Fayetteville. I have a beautiful son who is 12 yrs old. We love pets and enjoy being outdoors. I believe I am qualified as a caregiver because it is my passion to help others and I love meeting new people. I have 13 years of experience in healthcare including hospital, nursing home, doctors office, and private home care setting. My skills which are not limited to, include bathing, feeding, turning, maintaining skin integrity, transferring, medication administration, wound care, as well as other specialized skills. I am also CPR certified. I am a hard worker and I am always open to learning new things. What makes me a good caregiver is me being able to treat others the way i would want to be treated if i was elderly or in any form of disability.
What attracted me to being a caregiver was takin care of my gpop up til he was 95 and i saw all the families who wouldn't help and it kept him lonely and angry ,i knew that if i made him comfortable and happy i can do for others, it gave me a golden heart cause they go back to a infant form and u have to treat them with warmth and care. I also been around siblings and other family members with disabilities and it's always been my passion to go forth to work with people in the outside field to learn and to give them ability to feel normal and be them selves. What i enjoy most is that i get to take them out and let them be who they want to be ,i like to give them life ,my job is to care for them but i like to give them alil more ,some give up and think since the doctor says u can't no more it's over, i say let's try and see how far u can get ,cause there isn't no i can't ,until god says so .
My personal achievement was when i had one client who was determined to walk and doctors said she couldn't , in a matter of three months i had her standing and doin so much on her own.
I love my job i love my clients , i pray this wasn't to much to read but i wanted to introduce who i am.
Thank you in advance Dependable, loving, reliable, humble, helpful, persistent, optimistic, trusting, fair, encouraging.
What attracted me to being a caregiver is my great-grandmother. She became ill and could not move as she was used to. I begin helping her with her daily ADLs, feeding her, and taking her to Dr. appointments. It encouraged me to do the same for others like her that cold not help themselves.
What I enjoy most about being a caregiver is helping other that cannot help themselves. I enjoy seeing the smiles of the elderly that feels if no one cares and has forgotten about them.
A personal achievement that I am proud is furthering my education in the field of work that I love to do.
