I am a very compassionate person who loves taking care of elderly. I started home health care right out of high school and I fell in love with it. I haven't done anything else since then and I am now 24! I enjoy creating a bond with my clients and assisting them with all their needs. It makes me feel good to know that I could help somebody else achieve daily tasks (and more) that would be impossible without help. Home health is a very rewarding job, which is why I love it so much.
I am a recent college graduate who will be returning to school in the fall to study Nursing. I just recently moved to the Dover area and I am absolutely in love with the community. I currently work as a licensed STNA where I have the privilege of working with residents of the geriatric community and help those with late-stage dementia as well as those in our rehab unit perform ADLs and daily care. When I'm not at work, I love to travel, I love to write music, and I love to exercise. Anything to get me out of the house to do something productive! My long term career goals include becoming an adult-gerontology acute care nurse practitioner. I hope to take my services abroad to provide care for impoverished areas, assist in disaster relief, etc. Please do not hesitate to reach out to learn more about me! :-)

I listen to them. I treat them as if they were my own family. I love helping people. My dad had a stroke and I took care of him and that gave me a passion for helping people. Getting to know someone and making sure they are taken care of very well. Personal achievement is making a long lasting impression on my patients. I'm very loving g and caring
I have been a caregiver since I was 14 yrs old. I started when my mother got cancer and took care of her till she passed 5 yrs later. I then took care of 3 more family members till they all passed. Caregiving is in my blood as mist of the women in my family were all nurses. I enjoy it and hate to see loved ones put in long term care facilities where they get sub standard care. Let your loved ones stay home where they really want to be.
What makes me a great caregiver is that I go far beyond to provide my clients with the best quality of care. As a caregiver, my resident needs come first, and I make sure their health care needs are met. I first became interested in elderly care at the age of 11, I was a volunteer at a residential care facility where my Aunt worked. Later, at the age of 15, I became a dietary aide at another local residential care facility. Then, at the age of 18, I received my certificate as a State Tested Nurses Aide (STNA) and been working in the field for over 10+ years. I guess you can say I always had a passion for working with senior citizens and the elderly. I guess being raised by my great-grandmother taught me how to have compassion and patience for older people. What I enjoy most when it comes to being a caregiver is seeing my clients happy and relieved knowing their loved ones are being provided the best quality of care possible and seeing their healthcare needs taken care of. My greatest personal achievement is my children and obtaining my bachelor's degree in health care.
I have been a caregiver for more than 9 years and “still love what I do”. I love providing home care services to those that would otherwise not be able to do so. The smile on their faces is overwhelming and makes me feel I have done my job right. I have always enjoyed helping people so I know I am doing the right thing. I have also worked in nursing facilities and hospitals. My latest job was in a rehabilitation setting where I enjoyed providing rehab services and watching patients go from 0 to 90 with therapy goals that helped them to return home to their families.
I am 55 years old. I am an outgoing person who loves being around people and love taking care of them. What attracted me to be a caregiver is that I know they (the individuals) mostly need companionship. Their families can't be with them 24/7 with work and family. I just love to listen to them talk about their life. I always treat them as if I were in their shoes. My greatest achievement with being a caregiver is learning different ways on how to handle the individuals. So many families put their loved ones in a nursing home and never visit them. Most of these senior individuals rather be in their own home because that's where they feel more comfortable. Taking them out of their comfort zone messes them up. So if I can help a family try to keep their loved one at home, then I feel I've done my job by taking good care of them.
I am 18 years old, and have been employeed as a caregiver since before graduating High School. I have always taken care of older folks, for as long as I can remember. I helped care for my great grandmother and grandfather for many years prior to becoming an aide. I lived with my grandmother to help care for her during my high school years. I have always loved the elderly, I believe they need someone to always be there for them, and remember that they once were young and well. I believe they have a great story to tell, and they deserve someone to listen. I am currently registered in the state of Ohio as a nurses aide, and am attending college to obtain my LPN. I have medical knowledge, as well as a kind, and open heart. I truly believe I was born to be a caregiver.
