Hello, my name is loise. I'm 26 years old certified nursing assistant. I have been a CNA for the last 3 years and I love it. I love helping people on their day to day care. I'm attending UCDavis for my bachelors of science in nursing to become a registered Nurse. I'm hoping to find a full time day job as I go to school at night. I am reliable, trustworthy and I take my job seriously.
I have enjoyed working with the elderly since a young age, as I grew up on a farm with my grandmother. In my late teens, my grandmother developed dementia, and my family and I were fortunate to find wonderful caregivers to provide in-home support. In large part to this experience, I studied Healthcare Inequalities focusing on the stigma of old age. Subsequently, I conducted an ethnographic study of the Gray Panthers, an old-age activist group. I continued this interest into graduate school, where I conducted life history interviews with feminist activists in London to explore the intersection of old age and gender in the London feminist movement.
I am a very nurturing and kind person. I am very sensitive to the physical and emotional needs of those around me, very empathetic, gentle, good sense of humor. Treating people with respect is very important to me and I know it is to you as well. Currently I have been serving 2 female clients for one year. My morning client is 97 with visual and hearing impairments, diabetes and mild dimentia. I am responsible for taking daily glucose readings, keeping records of her medical data/appointments/medication dispensing. I cook her a hearty breakfast and we eat together. I introduced her to a game called "WordCross" and she loves to play every day with me. It is great for her mind and is a good social experience as well. My afternoon client has early stage Alzheimers, but is highly functional. I provide companionship, meal preparation for her and her husband, fix her hair, walk outside with her, do their grocery shopping, and occasionally we enjoy shopping/lunch trips together. At this point (starting May 6, 2019)she will need to transition to fulltime care. *** I'm looking for a new afternoon client and hope to set up an interview soon. I have more experience that we can discuss in person and/or on the phone. What made me most aware of the needs of seniors was when my own grandmother was near the end of her life and I helped her daily with dressing, grooming, feeding at one point, and eventually accompanied her through her last days in hospice. I understand how important it is for families to feel confident that their loved one is being treated with gentleness and respect. I want to help seniors to have the best quality of life possible.
I got into the Nursing field because I wanted to be in a career that helped people, I wanted to bring joy to people in unhappy situations.Working in Nursing Homes a lot of the workers are there for the wrong reasons, I understand that I am one unfortunate incident from being in their shoes and will want someone kind caring for me. And if could bring joy & happiness to someone in their last days I want to.
I am great caregiver because I am compassionate, loving, caring, patient, I have the ability to empathize. I found myself in a situation where I have to give up a lot to care for a loved one; I really could understand what it means caring for them. I am a caregiver because I have inborn passion to care for others. I feel proud about my job because I have been able to improve on the quality of live for many!!
Being honest, caring, punctual and following instructions makes me a great caregiver. It's making a client feel comfortable about being themselves and caring about their needs that's very meaningful to me as I'm learning as I go along that not all clients are the same. My personal achievement is being able to make him/her laugh again and love life no matter what their circumstances. I have been doing caregiving for 15years.
I became a care giver because I have a passion for helping people with special needs. Through my past experiences, I have acquired skills and abilities highly relevant to the Caregiver position: • Track record of providing assistance to elderly in activities of daily living • Well versed in motivating clients to enjoy their independence • Committed to perform housekeeping tasks; washing clothes and dishes, scrubbing bathroom and making beds • Focused on tidy living environment for clients through living area sanitation, ventilation, proper lighting and furnishings arrangement • Adept at implementing care plans provided by the care manager and client’s family My caregiving skills coupled with my enthusiasm to help others make me a unique candidate for this exciting opportunity.
I can say I am a good caregiver because I love what I do. I want helping other individual and giving the best care I can share them. My profession and being a caregiver molded me to be a strong person and love the work I do even in times of heavy and strenuous workload. I can give you testimonies and documents about the cases I handled. Let other discover who you are.. As I mention earlier I like to be a caregiver because I touch lives of people, especially the elders 100 percent I can make them feel that even in their last stage of life there are still people who can let them feel that they are important. The greatest achievement I have was able to send my daughter to a good school because of caregiving. Even though our work is tiring at the end of the day a client will tell you and will say....'THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR EVERYTHING YOU MADE ME COMPLETE. For me this are acievements. I am Elizabeth Loberiza 54 years old, from Philippines a graduate of Bachelor of Science in nursing. Was an Iccu and ER nurse In my younger years. Then I change work with residential care home , work includes direct care. Type of patent DD, elderly ambulatory and non ambulatory. I went school with Direct Support Professional year 1 and 2..Then work with agency with One on one client. I have handled all kind of cases simple and complex. The only thing I can assure you off I can be an asset in your company.
I enjoy helping and working with Seniors in their homes vs. a living Facility. : ) I enjoy helping them be able to live their quality of life in their own homes. When elderly people talk, I'm an attentive listener, I was told by a client once, if you listen closely you just may learn something you can use throughout your life. I have experience working with clients that have: alzheimers, dementia, diabetes, parkinson's, recovering from falls, strokes. I'm caring, compassionate, dependable, empathetic, honest, open minded, patient and trustworthy, I'm a woman of my word.
I was put into a situation at childhood taking care of my mother with rheumatoid arthritis. Taking care of my dad after college for over 14 years from a major stroke. I know what it is like for the patient and the family. I know what it is like when you loose your dignity having to depend on someone to feed you, dress you, bathe you and still find beauty in life. I am a very caring person and caretaking or elders comes very natural to me. I treat each individual the way I would like to be treated. I left my job 6 years ago with AT&T as a Senior Project Manager to take care of my wife w/cancer and daughter with systemic lupus. I know what it is like being sick and depending on others to get you through the day. I tried to get back to work but having been out of work for 6 years and over 50 its been almost impossible. Lets get real I think its time for a carreer change and doing something I truly am good at and enjoy. Its not about the money but what I enjoy doing...
I have a 10years of experience in adult and senior care. I am very reliable,dependable,trustworthy, compassionate,fun and very caring. I'm passionate about making people as comfortable as they possibly can be and enriching their lives in anyways i can. It's so important for me to give back to the elders with time,care,companionship and more. I evaluate to an individual's needs and create a care plan just for them. I can help with meal prep,medication,doctor's appointments, transportation and chores around the house that needs to be done.
Loving, caring for elderly patient makes me happy and appreciate how important each individual is regardless of what their physical, mental and emotional disabilities are. I give all what I can give and volunteer to walk the extra mile when needed. I have more than five years professional care giving experience and five years family care giving experience. Commitment and willingness is what I'm giving and looking forward to serve.
I'm an open-minded, friendly, compassionate woman with personal & professional integrity. Empathy and reliability, patience and the ability to laugh at myself & situations (instead of stewing about them) makes me a great caregiver. The safety of a client is of utmost importance. I've always liked to help the elderly to enrich their lives .
