What makes me a great care giver is first of all, my heart. I do this because I love to and when you do what you love it is not work. I am caring empathetic and compassionate. With over 36 years of senior care, I have extensive experience in ALL aspects of caring for the elderly and providing the very best in quality of life care. To name a few; Alzheimer/Dementia Care and communication strategies(redirection, therapeutic fibbing, or "going along" as long as it doesn't put the client at risk). Anxiety reduction, social interaction and companionship. Bathing and personal hygiene, great cook and homemaker. Observant and aware of changes in clients well-being. educated in home safety and recognizing possible barriers to client safety and ways to improve or remove those barriers. Excellent communicator and team player. There are many things I have done over the years as a caregiver that I am proud of. One in general, as to all my client,s has been to provide the very best in care and compassion and afford them the quality of life, respect and dignity we all deserve. As a care manager for my previous client, I was able to ensure that she was truly loved and happy. I ensured all her wishes were met and she knew she was cared for as well as her home and her cat. Her knowing was important to me. I am a Medical Assistant. I have 6 years of Home Health Care experience. I have experience in COPD, Bladder Cancer, Blood clots, Brain tumor, seizures, amputee, medications. Including IV medications.

Every since I was around 9 years old I knew then I wanted to help other's . My parents let me watch a 6 weeks old baby boy even though they were just across the street and parents up stairs, it was a joy! Since then I started at Ft. Carson military family as a red cross volunteer at age 16, after had other jobs but I was always drawn back to caring of other's. I have many different levels of care experience including Hospice as caring for children of many different levels of care as special needs adults. I have worked in hospital settings as nursing hms as asst. living including personal care & private care. I have been a personal asst to those that needed help organizing their lives such as book keeping, mail, areas of concerns, cooking, cleaning, errands, a lot of hands on, Dr appts, meetings with love ones as social workers. I had my own business so I'm very aware of customer service as patience. My, my, my to look bk at years of experience 20 plus as becoming a great grandma only had one child a girl, some tells me I don't look like a grandma let alone a great grandma, I give thanks for good genes & most times healthy eating and if I may say so the lord above, please don't let me saying the lord above scare u off from hiring me; I don't push my beliefs on anyone. I like to say most times I have more good days then bad as most of us , I hope.. I'm register with the state with a CNA license as CPR through the red cross. I have to say if I read this I would hire me, ha, ha. We all can use a smile as some laughter considering these days events! Thanks for considering me. Take care you and yours!
