A caregiver of seven years trained to handle a variety of health and behavioral situations, I am aware of the impulse of families to want to ensure the health and well-being of loved ones. The help may just call for daily living activities with extra touches that make life worthwhile: decent exercise, tasty healthy meals, a clean, pleasant environment, a good listener and conversationalist, and kind, competent care. Some situations, however, require attending to seemingly insignificant, but crucial tasks, such as reminders to drink enough liquids, to move body and limbs periodically to avoid pressure points and muscle atrophy. I believe my care is dispensed with respect, kindness, and purpose, mindful their need for such greater than ever. A general "How are you?" might be followed with a specific "Do you feel dizzy",; and too long a spell on the couch will suggest an exercise or outside to smell the roses. The idea, above all, is to provide for the well-being of body and soul. A wise tip I learned is to give old people something to look forward to, whether a fun treat or an item in their bucket list. It may not always be possible, but sometimes, even just trying helps. My career history is eclectic, but caregiving suits me because I believe I make a difference in the lives of those in my care; more often than not, the tables are turned to make me pay attention. I consider my charges' health and well-being challenges, such as easing a cynic's attitude with kindness or making one's last days a comfort. By researching and learning about their ailments before I take over, I make certain I "do no harm". I have gained hands on and annual online training from Home Health Aide courses and nurse delegated work. An energetic, resourceful worker, I offer empathy, kindness, and a bright outlook. They are what I gave my mom, now lovingly sent off to join dad, with plenty to spare for others.

Put a smile on an elderly' face and being there to meet his or her day-to-day needs make me a great caregiver. I always take the full responsible for the care and well-being of others. I mainly went into this field because I'm known to my family and friends as a person with a very sensitivity nature and my giving nature and nurturing desire to help those in need. One of the best qualities I that I possesses, is a sense of empathy for those that I am being cared for is my one of my reasons of being a caregiver and caring for the needed people will also prepare me for my future goal as a Surgical Physician Assistant (SPA). In addition to that, I also entails the full responsibility such as bathing, dressing, feeding and overseeing the safety and emotional needs of their feeling. I always wanted to work in the healthcare field especially after working with a family friend in my home state of California for two years. I have also been very fascinated with the power of Science especially human biology and Psychology in Human Behavior because I am always fascinated as to how the human’s body and minds works and why people behave in certain way and do the things that they do. Also, become a caregiver is my way of giving back to those in needs and those who have been there for me and I felt that I can be a part of medicine by helping the needed people. Deciding to go back to school has been something I have always being proud of because I sincerely believe that for one to achieve something in this life, he or she must have self-determination, self-assessment, self-motivation, and self-willingness. But most importantly to achieve in this life, a person must have guts. It always seems impossible until it’s done. Nelson Mandela.
