About Kiarra

For months now i have been expressing my interest in being a caregiver because of all the support i had received from members at my old job. I worked for a health insurance company that prepared me to provide great services. Over the past few years i have grown my customer service skills. I noticed that i have a passion for helping people more than just a quick phone call regarding benefits. One lady had shared that she was so grateful for my services that i had provided over the phone she wanted to just sit and talk with me. I love to check in on the elders in my family, to ensure they are provided with great support. I have also noticed that not all individuals have support, not all people have children or family to be there by their side. I have such a great bond with those i meet that later on they become like family. I am ranked one of the best at my job for customer service and i feel i can extend a helping hand outside of the call center. I have previous experience being a unpaid caregiver before which was the best time of my life. I gained a friend for life, someone who has never turned on me and also supported me. My kind gesture for the elderly is so rewarding that my client brought me my first car. I have a ton of references who will relay the same information. I believe patients/ clients just need love and support!

What makes me a great caregiver is that I have faith in helping others and I want to be helpful in humanity. I want to be a caregiver because when my mom was sick I always helped her and when she passed away I felt like I had a responisablity to help other sick people in the same way. I enjoy being a caregiver because at work I spend all my time doing something good that God appreciates. One personal achievement that I have is that I stuck with one of my patients who wasn't able to walk until she got better and started walking.
