I have 25 years experience and I became a caregiver because I have a passion for helping others and I wanted to offer value-added service and responsibility to elderly patients in need of quality care. What I like most about being a caregiver is personal satisfaction and accomplishment in caring for someone in need. A personal achievement that I am proud of is that I am a pre dietitian student studying in the geriatric field to help seniors make more nutritious choices. I am a tireless caregiver, an excellent communicator and a patient listener. I am punctual, reliable, compassionate, empathetic, and I assist my clients in a polite and upbeat manner. I have experience in: • IV antibiotics administration • PEG tube feeding • PICC line care • Oxygen therapy • Breathing treatments including nebulizer • Reinforce and change non sterile dressings • Stage 4 wound care • Measure intake and output • Prepare modified diets as prescribed by a physician • Calorie counting diets • Medication and medical supplies management • Team leader and scheduler of caregivers on 24hr shifts • Dementia, Alzheimer, Parkinson's disease, Stroke and Cancer patient care • Slide board and Hoyer lift
Caregivers that work non-full-time jobs or irregular shifts can negotiate extra compensation in addition to their standard hourly wage.
