Hi! My name is Beatrice and I am a certified AHCAS. I chose to be a caregiver because I do care and I have a lot of empathy for my clients. I face new challenges every day and I love it! I am a perfectionist. I love to help people with everything they need to be helped. From simple things like cleaning and cooking, to all that includes ADL and IADL. Beside, I can help with all kind of paper work, even apply for benefits, paying bills, making doctor appointments, managing your medication, taking you wherever you need to go!!!! Also a good driver. I am a good listener, positive attitude, great companion, happy person and definitely I can make your life easier. I am extremely satisfied if you are satisfied. Your happiness and overall well being makes me feel happy and useful. I strongly believe that when I help you, I also help myself. I am catholic and pray and meditate as often as I can. I can manage my time and yours as well. I am proud to be at your service. Thank you. I became a CNA at the age of nineteen in Oregon. I have 20 years plus experience as a caregiver. I enjoy my job and I believe it shows in the high quality of care that I give to my clients. I'm a professional caregiver that is reliable, self-motivated, observant, dedicated, and organized. I give each patient the care outlined in their Careplan with compassion, patience, and do my best to make them as comfortable as possible so they can live a peaceful and dignified life to their fullest potential. I have experience in nursing home care, private care, adult home care with many types of conditions, including Alzheimers, Parkinson, Dementia, COPD, CP, hospice, cancer, diabetes, congestive heart failure, catheter care, colostemy care, loss of limb care, rehabilitation assistance, renal failure and hoyer lift
. I'm flexible and willing to accommodate my clients and their loved ones even the ones with 4 feet. A caregiver of seven years trained to handle a variety of health and behavioral situations, I am aware of the impulse of families to want to ensure the health and well-being of loved ones. The help may just call for daily living activities with extra touches that make life worthwhile: decent exercise, tasty healthy meals, a clean, pleasant environment, a good listener and conversationalist, and kind, competent care.
Some situations, however, require attending to seemingly insignificant, but crucial tasks, such as reminders to drink enough liquids, to move body and limbs periodically to avoid pressure points and muscle atrophy. I believe my care is dispensed with respect, kindness, and purpose, mindful their need for such greater than ever. A general "How are you?" might be followed with a specific "Do you feel dizzy",; and too long a spell on the couch will suggest an exercise or outside to smell the roses. The idea, above all, is to provide for the well-being of body and soul. A wise tip I learned is to give old people something to look forward to, whether a fun treat or an item in their bucket list. It may not always be possible, but sometimes, even just trying helps.
My career history is eclectic, but caregiving suits me because I believe I make a difference in the lives of those in my care; more often than not, the tables are turned to make me pay attention. I consider my charges' health and well-being challenges, such as easing a cynic's attitude with kindness or making one's last days a comfort. By researching and learning about their ailments before I take over, I make certain I "do no harm".
I have gained hands on and annual online training from Home Health Aide courses and nurse delegated work. An energetic, resourceful worker, I offer empathy, kindness, and a bright outlook. They are what I gave my mom, now lovingly sent off to join dad, with plenty to spare for others.
