Four years ago I retired from nursing. Recently, I moved to Phoenix Arizona to be near family. I have one married daughter in Phoenix where I presently reside, and another married daughter in Peoria. My daughter and son-in-law in Peoria have one daughter and are currently expecting their second child. Prior to moving here, my most recent pertinent work experience was as a homecare non-medical provider to an senior woman in her Kansas home. Though hired as "non-medical care provider" much of my assistance with this woman did revolve around her medical needs as she was an end-stage cancer patient, as well as diabetic. I helped manage her medication schedule, transportation and ensuring she went to medical/doctor appointments. I also monitored her daily health needs such as blood pressure, blood sugars, etc. I would like to care for you or a loved one in your home, and assist you with some of your care needs. I am willing to assist with light housekeeping, meal preparations, exercise/physical therapy programs, transportation and occasional errands or grocery shopping. I enjoy reading, baking, music, walking and spending time outdoors, as well as spending time with my family. I would be delighted to come work for you! --Freida McMahon

I'm a very compassionate person, and I've enriched the lives of many, while in the comfort of their own surroundings. I've worked in the medical field as a respiratory technician for 15 years, and I've been a certified caregiver for 20 years and found that in home health care is where my passion lies. The majority of my clients are elderly, and to remove them from their surroundings can often cause them too much trauma. Being in their homes with them, and assisting them in day-to-day activities, is always more comfortable and provides a much happier environment. I know at the end of each day I have shown them compassion and made their lives more comfortable and peaceful. I am certified in CPR and FIRST AID, and I am a CERTIFIED CAREGIVER. I also have an extensive medical background as a RESPIRATORY TECHNICIAN ,and other aspects in the medical profession.
I am positive energy with an outstanding work ethic. I have 4 years experience as a Certified Direct Care Worker working both through an agency, and independently helping clients with personal care, bathing, toileting, medication reminders, shopping and errands, transportation to appointments, meal preparation, and light house keeping. -Certified Direct Care Worker -First Aid and CPR Card -Level 1 Phoenix Police Fingerprint Clearance Card -Negative TB Tested -Great References I am an energetic personal cheerleader for you and your wellbeing. Clients say I am caring, conscientious, hard working, honest, and that my energy is contagious. YOUR smile is my motivation. I am also an avid animal lover and happy to help with caring for your pets. I am semi-retired, but enjoy remaining active and helping those who need assistance. Let me bring a little sunshine to your day.
I am passionate about caring for people. I believe that one should always treat others the way they want to treated, with respect, patience, dignity, and kindness. I enjoy caring for people and loving what you do is most important to being able to give others the best care. Raising my daughter Saturday (11 years old) has shown me everyday what a gift it is to have such love and compassion for others and also having taken care of my elderly parents has been a gift so it is my family that attracts me to the career in caregiving. What I enjoy most about caregiving is knowing that I have made each day more positive and hopefully helped someone to feel better emotionally and physically. A personal achievement I am most proud of is my volunteer work at Scottish Rite Children's Hospital where I was assigned to the Oncology Unit and working just to make the children on that unit love, play, or do artwork taught me how precious life is and how even the smallest kindness matters more than we know.
I've been a caregiver for 20 plus years. My step mum was a nurse in a retirement home and introduced me to life as a caregiver. Caregiving gives me an opportunity to provide compassionate care for others as well as learn from them. It's what I do and what I know best. My personality and traits are best described as compassionate, easy going and articulate.
I am a professional caregiver with several years of of experience in attending to all of my clients' needs. I am patient, compassionate, caring, and thorough in my work, always treating my clients with dignity and respect. I am quick to respond to clients' ever changing needs. I have succeeded in raising the activity level, mobility level, and self-esteem of my most recent client, which individuals in the community have often pointed out to me. I am quick to build a great rapport with my clients. I enjoy helping others and improving their quality of life. I not only want to consider myself a caregiver, but also a friend.

What would make me be a great caregiver is that i have a sense of empathy, caring either for a small child to and elderly person. I understand and connect most of the time with Patients that they can create a sense of calmness and trust with in me. I also have lots of Patients for those in need of my help i listen to what ever they have to tell me so they can feel some affection towards a caregiver. What attracts me to being a caregiver is that i myself have grandparents living with me i know as getting to a certain age you need help and cant do many things for yourself, There for this is when i realized this would be a perfect job for, since i love to help others in need or may need any type of resources from me. What i enjoy most about being a caregiver is that you get to listen to other people, have a conversation with them and help them feel better. A personal achievement that i am proud of is that i have grown in this career path not only as for who i am but also my capability of managing a professional Medical Assistant in me and helping those in need of my help.
