It is my belief that all ppl regardless of their need are intitled to the best care possible for a full recovery or in many cases a private transition into their life's end journey...dignity and respect. Being a caregiver is one of life's rewards, those needing care are greatful and I would hope that if I need care someday I would have someone like myself. As far as achievements thus far is helping extended families learn and understand what their loved one may not be able to express to them. Keeping clients on track even if they don't have improvement ...giveing tools to live life out the best way possible with encouragement.

Personality traits or expertise; I've got a big heart and I feel that helped me along the way. What attracted me to being a caregiver; I took care of my grandmother when she was in her final stages of life & it was very rewarding. I was also a caregiver for 6 months to a lady whom grew on me like my own grandmother and everyday would push me to go back to school for my certification and has since passed. I enjoy being able to be someone else's companion and giving them the company and support they may not get in everyday life. Life is crazy, but being a caregiver is definitely about the one on one time you get with your resident(s).

i became a registered medical assistant because I wanted to help people and found the medical field very interesting. I have worked with a variety of people from the very young to the very old. I have worked in urgent care clinics, assisted living homes, and Alzheimer's/ Dementia units Since October 2013 I have been a full time live in personal caregiver to my grandmother due to her cancer.

I became a caregiver by choice. I had been in a profession which I loved for more than 20yrs. and I wanted something where I made a difference in people. Right now I work with mentally challenged people and I always feel good when I teach them something they can use in their daily live. I want to relocate back to Oregon to be near my family. I have been in mental health for the last 5yrs. and it has been a joy. Before that I did caregiving in nursing homes, assisted living facilities and a lot of private care. I moved to Des Moines to do the mental health and now I need to return to Oregon.
