To know that I'm giving my best to others in time of need is what gives me purpose. I became a caregiver for my mother, when she was recovering from several surgeries, in different skilled nursing facilities. All the while, making many observations concerning the staff and noticing their attention was not up to my standards of what genuine care should be. I knew then, that I could make a difference and was compelled to. Since, I've made strides in obtaining education with certifications; continue with on-line courses to keep me informed with state guidelines and any changes that occur in the health care field...because this is vital. Moreover, I sincerely feel this is my true calling; I find it very rewarding to nurture. I possess emotional and mental maturity necessary for establishing and maintaining a good working relationship with my client and the client's family. I also encompass dignity, patience, courtesy, integrity and a warm sense of humor. Oh! And I love to cook!
My current availability is: Monday, Tuesday Thursday and Saturday mornings to early afternoons from 8a.m. to 2p.m.
I've been a caregiver for over 18 years now! I have reliable transportation w/a Texas drivers license. My automobile insurance, CNA, TB screening and CPR are all current and in good standing
Thank you for the consideration. Well wishes finding the right fit!
I am careful, safe, organized and coordinated in transporting clients for their needs whether it is for picking up medications, getting them to and from their appointments, filling out forms, helping with their shopping, all personal care service for their daily living for and anytime they want some simple conversation and just not be alone. To give and share with clients, one must be compassionate and patient and have an understanding that those needing care would like for the caregiver to understand their needs. There happens to be an advantage to being a caregiver that can put themselves in the shoes and situation of those with the need. My joy is realized when the needs are filled and the cared for people are grateful and thankful. I want to give the care and experience the joy often. I have experienced this joy with my parents as I cared for them. Currently I am a part-time caregiver for various clients providing them all the assistance they may need.
