Started my career in the home-health care field in August of 2018, I learned to listen to my clients with not only my ears, but my heart, and soul. Always asking myself how I would like to be treated if I were in their shoes. The last two years I have assisted people in getting well and have also worked at keeping some people as comfortable as possible at the end of life. I understand truly what it means to be patient, and I want you to feel comfortable. Whether it be companionship, accompanying to a Dr.'s appt's, preparing meals, housekeeping, medication reminders, assisting with bathing, ect., my goal is to put a smile on the face of others. I will close with "The Starfish" by Loren Eisely. Once upon a time, there was an old man who used to go to the ocean to do his writing. He had a habit of walking on the beach every morning before he began his work. Early one morning, he was walking along the shore after a big storm had passed and found the vast beach littered with starfish as far as the eye could see, stretching in both directions. Off in the distance, the old man noticed a small boy approaching. As the boy walked, he paused every so often and as he grew closer, the man could see that he was occasionally bending down to pick up an object and throw it into the sea. The boy came closer still and the man called out, "Good morning! May I ask what it is that you are doing?" The young boy paused, looked up, and replied "Throwing starfish into the ocean. The tide has washed them up onto the beach and they can't return to the sea by themselves," the youth replied. "When the sun gets high, they will die, unless I throw them back into the water." The old man replied, "But there must be tens of thousands of starfish on this beach. I'm afraid you won't really be able to make much of a difference."The young man listened politely, then bent down, picked up another starfish and threw it into the sea. "It made a difference for that one."

I have been a caregiver since I was 18. I have devoted my life to caring for people who can not care for themselves. I had no idea when I started my first job as a caregiver that this is what I would fall in love with it, but life is life. The thing I love the most about caring for others is when I am able to see the impact I made on someone else's life, whether it be my client or their family.

Hello...I'm Madonna, I first realized I wanted to have a career taking care of those in need when I was 26 years old. My grandfather was very ill and my grandmother needed my help taking care of him. Long story short I took care of my grandfather right up until he died in 2014. I've been a certified nurse assistant for almost 5 years now. I'm a very energetic person who can catch on fast. I'm compassionate with almost everything I do especially my job. I have no problem with authority. My first priority at work is keeping my clients safe and comfortable by making sure their needs are met

I believe I am a great caregiver because I genuinely care for the people I take care of and treat them as if they were my own family. I want them to be happy when they see me and be able to confidently say I take good care of them. A few years ago, I never saw myself doing this type of work whatsoever. I honestly really needed a job and a local nursing home hired me and took me through classes to get certified! I found myself there for over a year and I knew almost everyone by name on all of the halls. I had a special bond with one lady in particular and she always loved seeing me come into her room. She always made sure to tell me how good I'm doing. Overall, just knowing I am helping those who cannot help themselves gives me some sense of purpose and it makes me feel good. You get close to the people you take care of and they become like a grandma or grandpa to you. My favorite part about having a little extra time and sitting down to talk to some of the residents. I'm fascinated by what things were like 50+ years ago and hearing all about their life and experiences. I also enjoy looking at pictures with them. Every single one of them have different quarks and personalities and it's so fun talking to some of them. I am most proud of the way I can confidently say that I take GOOD care of my residents and that I do it for more than just a check. If I can go home with a clear mind and know for sure I did the best of my ability, I know I'm doing something right. I care for them like I would want someone to care for my mom or grandparents.

I was a stay at home mom for 16 years with my triplet girls. During that time I helped with my father who had dementia, so that he could comfortably stay in his own home with my mom. For three years I have been an in home caregiver to a stroke survivor who recently passed. I do laundry, prepare light meals, bathe, help with personal needs, give medication, drive to appointments, and provide compassionate care and companionship. Willing to take your loved one on outings such as to the mall, movies or hairdresser. I'm looking for approximately 35 - 40 hours per week. My goal is to make your loved one comfortable and happy and to be able to stay in their own home. References available. Background check done 10/29/18. Able to provide copy/proof upon request.

I am one of the most easy going, whole hearted, loving people you will meet. I take full pride in all of my work with my patients/clients, and I have been told by everyone I have cared for that it is my calling. That I have a servants heart. I started caregiving at the age of 19, there was something about it that completely drew me in and once I started there was no stopping because I love it so much. The best things about being a caregiver to me are the smile that lights up the room when I walk in, the happy tears when I doll up a lady after a good shower and make her feel beautiful when she hasn't felt that in a while, and being a part of so many wonderful families that you just cherish those memories for the rest of your life. It's truly a blessing. A personal achievement that I am proud of would be being named Employee of the Year and Month for taking on an entire census of patients by myself when both of my co workers had resigned. It was tough, but I got it done and my whole team through a celebration for me. Being a caregiver has taught me so many wonderful things in life, and I couldn't be more grateful.
