I have been in the home care for over 5 yrs, have taken care of people from ages newborn to 90s. I took care of my mom for the last year of her life as she had cancer and I did everything for her from cleaning, feeding tubes to shots. I also took care of a man (62) who had Alzheimer's and Parkinson's and changed diapers, took to appointments and did overnights. My other woman was an 89 years old who needed help in dressing and feeding. I am still friends with all my clients and have references. I work through a placement agency which would give me a great reference.
what helps me be a great caregiver is getting to know my client and build an relationship with them I look at all my clients as if they were related to me in some sort of way and I treat them how I would treat my mom,grandma,father grandfather etc..... Wat made me want to become a caregiver is that my parents are getting older and soon won't be able to do a lot of the things they are use to doing so I wanted to get in the health field so I can help them when they need me to help them I will know wat to do for the conditions they will have..... I like waking up in the morning knowing I'm going to care for somebody that need me and trust me with helping them with there everyday routine such as eating bathing and cleaning up there area......
I am 31 years old and have been a CNA since 2010. I also starting doing home care on top of nursing home care and absolutely love it. I love making people smile and helping them with daily task they need assistance with to make their day go a lot easier and happier. I look at my clients as family. I treat them as i would want my family memeber to be treated.
I worked with developmentally disabled individuals for 23 years before going back to school to finish a teaching degree. I am looking at retirement from teaching, this July, and would like to return to caring for people again involving home care situations. I am also looking for available opportunities that I can fulfill at this time. I feel my personal achievement is that in my 40's I went back to school and continued caring for people at a different level, such as student needs. I presently teach first grade. My experience in both employment situations had rewards that only one can experience by participating in both environments. Educationally, physically and emotionally I was able to create environments that allowed needs to be met in comfortable atmospheres, while enjoying those I worked with. Also cared for a woman with Alzheimer's disease upon request of the family. I simply enjoy working with all people.
From the time I was a little girl I always wanted to help people. My mother a sweet warm hearted women was born with a rare condition at the time hyperglycemic leucine sensitive. Which is a rare disorder that caused her to have many seizures due to the fact her body was unable to regulate insulin levels. From this condition she had mental retardation. The medications to help her condition have always been trial and error. I can remember while my father was at work if my mother’s sugar dropped or she began having a seizure knowing to give her orange juice to rise her sugar level.Than when she became stable giving her protein since it’s a long lasting stabilizer. Sometimes if her sugar dropped and wasn’t caught in time she would go into convulsions. I knew to keep her from banging against something and prevent her tough from going back into her throat. Growing up with a mother mentally slower than I was; I was forced to mature fast. I often times was taking care of my mother more than she was taking care of me while my father was gone. But I enjoyed doing it. I love the satisfaction of taking care of others. From then on I always had a high interest in the medical field. I loved science and anatomy. And I often read books on rare conditions such as my mothers. I took my course and become certified as a personal care aide and a home health aide. I have experience taking care of males and females with all different medical problems. I also have administered medication to most o
I worked for 1. 5 years in a nursing facility as a certified nursing assistant helping our elderly with all aspects of their activities of daily living. I also worked as a mental health therapy aide at the Buffalo psychiatric center for 10 years and took care of my mom the last year of her life. I am very personable and caring. I treat people the way I would like to be treated. I love the Bills and Sabres and like to do crossword puzzles. One of my biggest assets is my ability to put my self into others shoes.

I take the time and sit and talk to loved ones to understand there what's and needs, I knew this was something I wanted and could do, when loved ones knows theirs someone who cares they are stress free. What I like about being a caregiver is the way I can make a person feel satisfied, self worth, and comfortable, its a enjoyable feeling to me that's why I have returned to school to go further in the healthcare.
About me I am a certified (PCA)I feel I would be a good asset to the caregiving team professionally because I have 5+yrs experience as a private caregiver & I am a good dedicated trusting hard worker what attracted me to caregiving is that I love working with the elderly give them hope and dreams of continuing life I love to bring smiles to other people faces because tomorrow is not promised to no one what I enjoy most about caregiving is that I get to meet other people I get to bring smiles and happiness and comfortability to others lives to the best of my ability that's a personal well achieved process that makes me proud to be a Caregiver .
I am at my best when helping other people. I receive a lot of joy out of knowing that my presence and care is needed and helpful. I can be quite bubbly. I love to laugh, and enjoy making other people laugh as well. I enjoy listening and getting to know people. I like to understand people by getting to know them through their personal stories and life experiences. I'm always willing and able to learn. I wanted to be a caregiver after working at Elderwood for a few months. I realized how much I care for the residents and how much their well being means to me. And it was made clear to me that I couldn't spend as much time with them as I wanted to if I was continuing as a dietary aide. I've been told by my other employees that I'm very good with the residents and know how to be patient and kind even when they are lashing out at me. I've never been a caregiver, but I think I would most enjoy their company, even though it is my job to keep the client company. I feel like people these days have forgotten how important it is to sit down and listen. To learn from a past generation who grew up very differently than we did. And I know our generation could benefit greatly from listening to our elders, especially those who feel they don't have a voice or feel forgotten. Helping other people humbles me. It reminds me of how small my problems are and it distracts me from the self-centered attitude that tends to latch on.
I am a very caring person. I enjoy the smiles on the faces of whom every i care for it bring joy to my life . I am very patient and respectful to all needs. My goal is to one day become a nurse. I graduated froma very respected school which taught me to have self discipline and control and to also have integrity at all times. I hold these pillars very valuable in my own personal life.
