About Paula

I have become a caregiver because I love assisting others. I like Being a caregiver because is rewarding in it's own way. You get to actually see your hard work paying off with smiles and relief. I love the fact that I have someone who relies on me and I get to be there every step of the way to assist them. I am down to earth, detail oriented, friendly, kind, caring and playful. I enjoy relaxing under the sun and reading books. I like working out and listening to music and I love beach days!! I think what makes me a great caregiver is the fact that I actually care. After I take in the responsibility of caring for another individual its no longer just about a pay check. Its making sure that their needs are met and that they are comfortable. Making sure that they can live a little more. Be able to make them what they want to eat, even if they're only allowed a small portion. ( I love to cook) Letting them know that they are in control of the situation and I am just here to help and make their time more enjoyable. Alot of people who are in need of caregivers tend to feel a little down about things because they feel like they cannot do for themselves. I like to let them know that there is nothing wrong with assistance. Its a circle of life. The personal achievement that I am proud of most is being strong and independent. I am proud to say that I can survive and maintain myself. I believe that if you can support yourself, you can conquer anything!!!

I am a caring, loving and patient woman. Being a caregiver is an essential part of my life. One character that enables me to be successful in this job is love and patience. It hurts to see older ones experience physical difficulties. This really boosts my pride for being a caregiver. Assisting patients with their needs is all I like about being a caregiver. Most importantly, I make new friends. When I first started my career of being a caregiver in 2006, my determination was to increase the reputation of the Home Health agency I was working with and one way to do that was to satisfy its patients. I am really proud of my job.

Caregiving job to me is rewarding and gratifying where you feel satisfied at the end of the day helping and making a difference to someone's life. I enjoy this kind of job as you will meet different kind of folks with varied special needs and you learn a lot from each client from their personal point of views to their medical care needs. At least you feel like you are working more than a nurse as you are right there working with clients who are mostly outpatients for 12 hours or even 24 hours. I am 49 years old, a Filipino and am in this caregiving world for almost ten years having developed this sympathetic attitude towards the care of the elderly.
