Since my childhood days I wanted to work in job where I would help others. Thus I wanted to enter in the healthcare industry right from early life. When I was young my grandmother became severely ill and she could not care for herself. So, my family contacted a health agency to hire someone to help her. My grandmother's health status has improved considerably after a nurse assistant came and I was very grateful to her. It was at this point that I found joy in helping others. When others fail, I give it 110% and achieve success. When I was doing my training I had formed a bonding with an elderly patient. One morning while caring for her I had a gut feeling that something wasn't right, though her vital signs were perfectly OK. So, I went ahead and talked to my supervisor. When the doctor turned up and checked he found out that lady was ill. My attention to details helped the patient. I am an easy going person who gets along with the people very well. This characteristic of mine has made me team player at all previous jobs. I'm very happy to have an opportunity to apply such skills and an inherent caring attitude. I have served the younger and the elderly,physically and mentally impaired with an immense passion and fulfillment. I seek to enrich the life of your loved one and ensure their well-being on a daily basis. I have experience caring for people with physical/mental disabilities, dementia, Alzheimer's,etc.. In-home, hospice care and general elderly care. I provide the following services( for live-in/live-out/ respite care) but not limited to: groceries, grooming, companionship,dental care, assist with all ADL, medication reminder, all duties as requested by patient. I hope I talk to you soon. I took care of my sick mother until she passed away. Later, a friend introduced me to the field of caregiving. Though I had formerly been a school teacher, caregiving fit like a glove. A client once asked me why I chose this profession, and I told her that I wanted to make a difference in people's lives. I offer personal care, housekeeping services, and companionship.
When my client was dying, I held her hand the entire time, not knowing that the daughter had entered the room and observed my action. After her death I received a note from the daughter describing how she had been touched by my action.
As a former teacher, I am punctual, compassionate, empathetic, and sentimental; I laugh and cry with my clients.
My current job involves caring for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities in their homes. I have recently been providing a client with personal hygiene in the morning through CareLinx.
I am a caregiver with more than 14 years of experience with seniors and people with special needs. I provide safe, respectful, loving, skilled care towards every one of my patients. I will deliver peace of mind to family members by keeping their loved ones safe while also protecting their independence and preserving their dignity. I give detailed information and pay close attention to my clients and to the families' needs. I have taken care of many people from family members, friends, and clients in facilities to group home members and privately cared for patients. Whatever the needs may be, I strive to go above and beyond my call of duty. Life is a treasure and if I can provide life or encouragement to anyone, or let them know that they are still loved and living with grace and dignity, I am that Angel. Many people lose their independence and feel lost. I can give clients, as well as their families, peace of mind knowing that things will work out fine.
