Everyone has a calling in life... Mine is the the compassionate care of others. I love to help others when they are having trouble helping themselves. I believe that people need to be treated with compassion and respect regardless of their condition. My experience has proven to me that I have patience and empathy to provide the care and love required to be a great care giver.

I am capable of running most home health care equipment. I am also very capable of dealing with doctors, nurses, pharmacists, and hospice.

Hello! My name is Emily Thornton, I am 20 years old. I have lived most of my life in Delaware, OH. Since I was little, I have enjoyed working with older adults. I enjoy listening to the stories they have to tell. Being a caregiver has been amazing - I have worked with many wonderful clients. Through my work and educational experience, I have gained a lot of knowledge about older adults and the needs they have. In the future, I would like to be a social worker for the aging population. Currently, I am studying Social Work at The Ohio State University. I will be completing my internship at the Central Ohio Area Agency on Aging. Working with older adults has been a passion for me! I would love to get to know you and your loved one and find out ways I can help!
When I was a stay at home mom, my mother became seriously ill, it was then when I decided to become a Certified Nurse's Aide. My husband and I moved in with my parents so I could give around the clock care for my mother until she passed in '07. I then worked in a Hospital for only a few months and decided that kind of enviornment just wasn't for me. Since then I have been working in Nurseing Homes and love the feeling of family and friends, there is a feeling of closeness, respect, and love I develope for my patient/resident that I personally cherish, and helping others in a loveing and careing way.
1. I enjoy being an active participant with the patient's overall happiness and care. 2. The part I like about being a Caregiver is that I benefit more than the patient and it makes me feel needed. 3. Giving all that I have and making the patient more content and comfortable than they had been before. 4. I am a mature female that has many qualifications. Such as dedication, compassion and empathy. I am relentless in finding solutions to improving or solving problems. I will do everything that I can to meet high expectations in my field.
For me, being a caregiver isn't just a career. It's my calling in life. I feel as though it's what I was put here to do. My very first job at age 18 was as a caregiver for a lady with MS. I cared for her as a live in for nearly three years with one day off weekly. I then moved to direct care for disabled individuals and have accumulated several years experience. I am certified in first aid/ CPR, medication administration, insulin trained, and have a wide path of experience to fall back on. I was also caregiver for my mother for five years until she passed from ALZ. I am currently attending college studying Human and Social Services to better provide for those I work with and for. I believe that being a caregiver requires a special individual, just as special as those I care for. I have always felt that the individuals I have met and worked with have each been a blessing in their own way and I am the lucky one for having them in my heart and life. I view my clients as family, nothing less. I am dedicated, sincere, patient, full of good humor, not easily upset, and my greatest joy is making others happy. That's the biggest benefit of all. Thanks for listening! - Lori

I feel I am a great caregiver because I have all my life cared for ones; beginning with being the middle of seven children I was responsible for caring for those under me and then into marriage; I cared for 4 children. After my divorce I continued caring for my four children at the same time living with my elderly grandmother of 93, who had Aleizmiers and her sister, 88 who had breast cancer. Working closely with different agencies including Hospice, I was able to give them the quality care they deserved for as long as I was able to do so. I also have a friend who has MS and she lived right across the hallway from me and I have over the last four years enjoyed helping and caring for her. I have a heart for the hurting and disable. I understand the challenges involved in caring for them and would like to pursue a career in this field. What I like about being a caregiver is being able to make them smile, to remove for a season of time the reality of their present state and help them see a lighter side to life. I combine care with comedy and wit and make what is work - now relationship. When I came to take care of my grandmother she was pretty unrespondent to everyone. After about a month there, she would talk more and she began singing. She still didn't know who I was, but her who demeanor had changed and she was more pleasant and cooperative. I am a mother of four and a grandmother of 15. I love people and though not an outgoing person by personality. I
