Please allow me this wonderful opportunity in caring for your precious loved one. I believe I am a great caregiver because I have patience, I am kind, and I show compassion. What originally attracted me to caregiving is when my grandfather got sick, my parents and I took care of him, we set up a hospital bed and we did everything possible for him to be safe, happy, comfortable, and at home. From that period in my life forward I knew this is meant for me. My paternal grandmother is also very sick, she has Alzheimer's disease, which is a very progressive and terrible disease, I know first hand what it's like to be a family member suffering with this person as they loose all recollection of memories. That's why when I got my first I specifically asked to be put on a memory care unit, and I thrive with them. I understand dementia, what it does, the different stages. I seen what it looks like when someone declines, I know the signs and symptoms. I love caring for these people, because I know i make a difference everyday, every smile is a difference. I love helping them everyday, I love making sure they are safely in bed cleaned and changed at night, I strive for it. I am a recent graduate with my Masters in nutrition looking for a part-time job.
