Thought that I wanted to retire then realised I missed working, I don't want to stop working. When people who know me find out I want to go back to work they always suggest I go back into caregiving. I like to help people, I see the importance of treating each person who needs assistance in a special way. I treat each client the way I would want someone to treat my parent or family member. I feel that most individuals are not happy about needing help, so you have to make them feel spoiled and appreciated and respected, and keep their information private, that is what I do for a client.
I have worked within the home healthcare field for close to 18 years. Working with the disabled I'll and elderly has been my passion. I am not just a caregiver but a friend and often like a member of the family. I worked as a companion care and a home health aide while living in Michigan before moving to Oklahoma and obtaining my certification as a nursing assistant, home health assistant and long term care assistant. Following my certification I became an employee of St. John's medical center of Tulsa where I worked on the stroke unit for 3 of the nearly five years I was employed there before transferring to the woman's surgical outpatient unit where I worked until i decided, due to personal reasons that can be explained during interviewing, to resign and work as a contracted in home care provider.
I got in to this back in 2001 my boyfriend I had was in a wreck that put him in a coma for six months I spent 2 months with him at St.Johns hospital with him till they deported him. Then my grandmother found out she had terminal cancer on 9/11/2001 and I stayed with her at her apartment and took care of her till they put her in the hospital , then not to long after that my grandfather had a stroke and got really sick and had dementia , so I went and got my my med aid. And went and got a job at the place my mom was going to put my grandpa i could watch them and see how they did with him needless to say i had my mom take my grandpa out of there . Im just a helpful person and I like making people smile it makes my day.
I have been a caregiver for my current family for four years. I enjoy spending time with the couple and I enjoy making sure they enjoy the meals I prepare. I have always loved helping others. I proud that when the husband suddenly died the family insisted that he stay and manage the household and be their for thier mother.
