I have been told I am very easy to talk to. I love helping others and have always wanted to work in the health care field. I enjoy being able to help those in need. It makes me proud to know that I may have changed someone's life even if it's just a little. I am constantly praised and thanked for the work that I do and it makes me feel good and let's me know I have chosen the right profession. A personal achievement I am proud of is having my children. They keep me grounded and I love that they see me as an example and are learning to help and love others as I do.
I have been a caregiver since I was in my youth by taking care of my paternal grandmother and all her needs. Then I took care of my maternal grandmother on and off for about 25 yrs. I took care of my late husband who had cancer for 7 yrs and then my father who had dementia after a stroke for about 7 yrs between my sister and I. This was not a fulltime 24/7 situation but took up a lot of time out of my day. Then I took care of my newborn grandson for 2 years as my daughter was not well. After that my mom had several surgerys and had radiation. I have been staying with a 90 yr old woman who is an old friend here in Forest City but she has new help now. I guess it is in my genes to do this. I gives me satisfaction to know that I have helped someone to stay as independent as possible while helping them through their day. I want to get my CNA license so I can stay in this career. As for a personal achievement I am proud of is that I worked for a motivational speaker who spoke about positive thinking and follow your dreams and he taught me a lot about life and how to enjoy every moment. I look forward to each caregiving position that comes my way and doing my best to make a difference in that persons life. I am able to travel up to an hour one way for any position as that is the time I listen to music and tapes in my car.
I am a wife and a mother of two wonderful children. I worked for over 20 years in Social Services, which included working with individuals with disabilities, victims of abuse and neglect as well as elderly individuals. I spend my free time with my family, at the ball field or at church.
I currently work in an assisted living facility as the lead Medication Technician on the memory care unit. I administer medications, give insulin shots, take vitals, and keep narcotics records up to DHEC standards. I have a lot of experience working with Alzheimer's, dementia, traumatic brain injuries, etc. I'm finding that my work is becoming a bit too stressful with school. I'd love to find a job caring for just one or two elderly adults. I enjoy making crafts, cooking healthy meals, and being outdoors. I love gardening and being and being around animals. I also have experience in the activities department.

I have a very open personality to people of all kinds. I do not discriminate or judge based on someone's past or present. What attracted me to being a caregiver of sorts, is caring for my father when he was dying with stage 4 lung cancer. After the treatments stopped he declined rapidly and I was at his bedside 24/7 delivering medications every 3 hours and bathing, changing, cleaning, administering as much fluids as he could take and attempting to have him eat. As well as many hugs, kisses and love from his little girl. Helping him in his degrading state is what is helping me cope with his passing. If I could give back to people who don't have family or loved ones such as a daughter to do what I did for my father I would love to provide that to someone. It would make me feel like I was in this area of work for the right reasons. I enjoy being able to be a companion to someone who is lonely because I certainly couldn't fathom having no one and being elderly. I am proud of the fact that I stayed by my fathers side until the end no matter how heart breaking it was to watch him lay there like that. In the end I know I did the right thing and that feeling beats anything else I've ever experienced. Humbling to say the least.
Hello, my name is Jenna. I am a married 20 year old with a passion for caregiving, and the elderly. I grew up in a home full of kids, but later on in my life I was taken in by my grandparents. I had to volenteer for a nursing home during High School and it was there where I found my passion. Living with my grandparents and helping them only confirmed that. I am kind, very patient, honest, and very humble. I've grown thick skin through life so I am not easily offended. My heart is the happiest when I give love and care to those who need it. Although it can be challenging, I love challenges. And it makes me the proudest person in the world when the person I am caring for feels truly happy and safe in my care.
Thank you for looking at my profile. My name is Tiffany; have been a caregiver for 15 years. I truly enjoy working with the elderly. I am a hard worker, compassionate, funny, active, dedicated, honest and trustworthy. I am a non-smoker, animal lover and I have my own car. I am hoping to find overnight caregiver work- at least 3 nights per week. I am also available for some daytime c hours each week as well for caregiving.
I became a Caregiver because I love the thought of helping someone in need. I am a firm believer in the Word of God by loving and serving someone who needs the assistance. I wanted to be there for people, to encourage them to have hope for it is the anchor of our souls. What I like about being a Caregiver is that not only are you caring for someone but your getting to know them, building personal relationships, and growing together in the work you do. I also love hearing stories, talking with them, how they were raised, what makes them happy or sad, how life was 50 years ago, what makes them feel appreciated or not appreciated and much more! A personal achievement I am proud of is that I have never been wrote up, got in any kind of trouble, neglected my patients, been fired, I also have had the experience to do medical work in Mexico villages for 2 months with a missionary team I went to school for! I am 21 years old and super outgoing. People who know me ask why I smile so much. I have been a missionary for 2 years on and off, now I am wanting to get back into working. I am a Christian, I am NOT ashamed, and I know because of Christ, He is the reason why I love this work.
