About Alica

I am a very patient, loving, dependable person. I am compassionate and understand another person's struggles. I am a mother of eight and have many years of experience with caring for others. As a young child I had a heart for babies and the elderly. At five years old I was so proud to walk my 80 year old grandfather around our neighborhood. Some people are takers and some are givers. I've always been a giver. If I see someone in need, I just naturally jump in with help. Helping others gives me a sense of peace. We all know life can be hard, so I like to make it easier for others any time I'm able to . We all have different qualities, and I believe caregiving is a gift. I'm so thankful for the opportunity of caring for my mother after she was diagnosed with lung cancer. I moved into her home, with my then 3 month old baby, to make sure my mom felt loved and cared for. I felt it was my way of honoring my mother and showing respect for all the years she cared for her children. Most people do not get to experience being with a parent when their life is over and I will always consider it an honor.

Caregiver

Jul 1984 - Present
Home Caregiver
I began giving care to others primarily with the birth of my first child. I have eight children and have taken care of them during childhood illnesses, along with cuts, rashes, broken bones etc. I have experience caring for my father during heart attacks, gall bladder surgery and vascular surgeries, while in the hospital and also in his home. I cared for my mother after she was diagnosed with lung cancer. I monitored and regulated her blood glucose levels, prepared her meals, assisted with daily baths and trips to the restroom. I also administered Morphine and held her hand as she took her last breath. I have been a caregiver my whole life. I will be an asset to any company I work for, but more importantly, a blessing to those I will care for.

I came to be in the healthcare field from my mom who was an RN and taking care of some of my immediate family and always been a caretaker. Since my 3+ years as an CNA I researched and met people on how I could bring the certification I received to others so traveled across the USA from NY to Idaho as an CNA in long term care facilities, also with private home care, because I want to give back to the Elderly. The experience of working with families, has given me a better perspective on life and the ability to handle any and all personalities, different levels of care, medical diagnosis. My professionalism is graceful and consistent with respect to whom I care for and their families.

What makes me a great caregiver is that I love helping individuals that needs the help the most. I am warm hearted and can understand that I to may need help in the future myself so I look at it as paying it forward. I take my job very seriously. What attracted to me to becoming a caregiver was that I realized that some people don't have family that they can lean on, so as a helper to them, I would be considered family to them. I am outgoing, love to conversate about any topic, loves to cook and read books.
