About Rachel

Some of the personalities that qualify me as a great caregiver includes but not limited to the following: being very patient; caring, attentive and being very compassionate about all of my clients; I listened to Supervisors very keenly and execute directives to the maximum. I am very humanistic and complete assignments with all details. I am being attracted to being a Caregiver because I love working with Seniors and care very much about their well-being. I developed much passion for the field after taking care of my own parents. The enjoyment in taking care of the elderly is exemplified in the receptiveness that is received from the clients as well as the love I encounter from working with them. I am very proud of my Certificate of Appreciation, awarded to me by GRISWOLD SPECIAL CARE, after providing 9 years of outstanding service; Also, I received the MARTIN LUTHER KING, JR. RECOGNITION AWARD , after rendering an exemplary service to persons with Alzheimer's Disease or related dementia.

What makes me a great caregiver is my compassion and the fact that i honestly love what i do. I became a caregiver because when i was younger my grandmom passed away and the little tasks i was allowed to do made me feel good and if i can do that for someone else loved ones it would bring me joy. An achievement i made was becoming a cna and although i didn't finish but i intend to is nursing school.
