Hi! My name is Beatrice and I am a certified AHCAS. I chose to be a caregiver because I do care and I have a lot of empathy for my clients. I face new challenges every day and I love it! I am a perfectionist. I love to help people with everything they need to be helped. From simple things like cleaning and cooking, to all that includes ADL and IADL. Beside, I can help with all kind of paper work, even apply for benefits, paying bills, making doctor appointments, managing your medication, taking you wherever you need to go!!!! Also a good driver. I am a good listener, positive attitude, great companion, happy person and definitely I can make your life easier. I am extremely satisfied if you are satisfied. Your happiness and overall well being makes me feel happy and useful. I strongly believe that when I help you, I also help myself. I am catholic and pray and meditate as often as I can. I can manage my time and yours as well. I am proud to be at your service. Thank you. The world exists upon the kindness showed by others, and that this kindness keeps alive the souls of those needing care.
What I like about being a caregiver is that, for clients who cannot do many of the things they used to do, like running around and getting things done to take care of their families--life now begins anew based purely upon things that matter now today-- the worth, the thoughts, and the amount of attention that is paid toward them. This is a time of really focusing only on the present moment, and it takes a certain degree of concentration even to do that, sometimes. They are now the person who need this the most.
My greatest personal achievements are when clients, who experience a decrease in function, and sometimes can hardly move or talk, are the most appreciative for my attentiveness to understand them. The story of the Good Samaritan identifies a good neighbor as one who shows kindness, and the rewards write upon the heart and soul.
Caregivers are to the aging population a group who recognize that aches and pains are not going to go away. What some call a disadvantage, or disability serve, in many ways, to be an advantage because we shift our focus and attention toward what is really important in life-- people and how they are treated.
I am only one of many like-minded caregivers who believe that a moment of clarity with loved ones--paying attention to the good in the moment--is the same as finding diamonds in your own backyard.
