Having been a caregiver to my late Mother for many years, and often, around the clock, I know all that this rewarding experience involved, but also how critical it was to have time to myself in order to decompress and re-charge. So, one of my goals as a caregiver is to give much-needed respite to loved ones. However, because I purely enjoy meeting the needs of others, particularly seniors and the disabled, this is a perfect career choice in which to do this. I believe I possess a few qualities that make this an excellent field for me to work in. First and foremost, I am *passionate* about helping and giving to others. But thanks in large part to my Mom, I am also a conscientious, compassionate, honest and trustworthy, well-organized and detail-oriented woman (who loves to laugh!). And last but not least, I have an extremely *positive* outlook on things. I am proud of a few things in my role as a caregiver to my Mom, but one of those that I am most proud of would be: She was taken to the ER and hospitalized 14 times in the last 9 months of her life; and I was by her side through it all, advocating very strongly on her behalf all along the way. In her final stage, when hospice came in, I was the first person to convince both them and our medical provider to keep my Mom on all of her 12 medications throughout hospice's care. This resulted in extending her life - so we got to spend more time together during these precious last weeks. It is my true intention and desire to care for all my clients with the same quality of care and attention that I gave my Mom, granting, of course, that I strictly follow the families' guidelines. A few last notes: Background Check started 2/10/18. I have my own reliable source of transportation. And references available upon request. Thank you for your time, thusfar!
