I love visiting with my patients, you can learn so much about them and their lives and that gives you a better sense of the care needed and things they enjoy doing.I had private duty assignment with a 89 young lady, we had the best conversations and that helped me to get to know her better and also for her to get to know me better

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've worked for an elderly woman the past 4 1/2 years. I prepare one main meal of the day. Cleaning, medicine reminder, transportation, shopping are all my responsibility. When guests were in the home, I served them to make them feel welcome. I work Monday thru Friday 9am to 1pm, with overtime as needed
I am a born caretaker with 6 years of nursing experience specializing in compassionate care to patients with intellectual disabilities, special needs and seniors. I enjoy one on one companionship and showing my patients they are important and treating them with respect and dignity. I am proud of my integrity and my passion for being a caretaker!
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 am a great caregiver because I go up and beyond of what is expected of me. I was a caregiver to a young man with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy for 3 years. He is on a ventilator full time to help him breath and a g-tube so he can eat. I have experience with just about anything and I'm willing to do anything to help my client/patient out.
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 grew up with a grandmother who suffered from mental illness and then from dementia as she got older. I always enjoyed the time I spent with her regardless of her disabilities. I enjoyed helping her make her day easier and putting a smile on her face. After she passed away I found that I had this emptiness I wanted to fill with helping others. I worked in a facility for awhile and decided the companionship was lost in policies and wanted to try in home care instead and fell in love. I enjoy hearing stories of peoples past, and helping them accomplish little things that put a big smile on their faces. I have decided to follow this calling of helping people by continuing my education and becoming a nurse. Through the classes I am taking I had to get a background check so I don't have one on here but have one and it's clean!
