I believe what makes me a great caregiver is I generally care about the ones I take care of. Some companies tell you that part of your job is not to get close to your clients or patients, that you can't have a relationship with the ones you take care of on a daily basis. I will always go above and beyond for the ones under my care. I always feel and treat them as if they are one of my family members as well. I wouldn't do anything for them that I wouldn't do for my own mom , grandma, aunt, uncle, dad, grandfather. Not only am I there for the client/patient but I'm also there for the families as well. Questions, concerns, suggestions, keeping them up to date on conditions. Communication is big with me on keeping everyone on the same page so that the best care can be given at all times. I became a caregiver because my ex husband was diagnosed with stage 4 prostate cancer. He called me from the hospital asking for my advise and help. I left California to go back to New York to help him threw his treatments and all of his struggles. His fight has been long and hard and he has not given up yet on life. Seeing other family members go in and out of nursing homes being neglected , alone, and losing their will to live has been a struggle and I've taken caregiver positions with all of my terminally ill relatives and a few friends. I want others to feel that their loved ones are safe and taken care of when they are unable to be there with them. That's the main reason why I do what I do. The fulfillment I get when I know I've made a difference for someone else. Whether it's for the patient that is passing or the family members that need that reassurance their loved one is being properly taken care of. I enjoy everything there is to being a care giver.
I have extensive experience in providing quality care to the patients while maintaining good nurse/caregiver-client/family relationship. This include having respect for the client, being compassionate, well informed of the most effective interventions in timely manner and working collaboratively with client /family to provide exceptional care to them. My several years of experience as a home care Aid allowed me to harness my ability to care for both easy and difficult clients. I have a very amiable personality which helps me to keep client happy at all time. I can engage my clients in different kinds of activities (board games, cards, movies) to keep them going depending on the client's ability and tolerance. You will not find a more professional, punctual, hardworking and driven candidate than myself. I completed my externship as a Vocational Nurse at Gurnick Academy of Medical Arts (Preparing for Nclex Exam). As an Estern during my speciality rotations, I saved the life of a 92years old patient that had respiratory distress by identifying and intervening in good time. Besides, I have the following certification: Certified CPR - American Heart Association - Certified, Completion in NIH Stroke Scale and Crises Prevention (CPI) - Certified , Completion in Fundamentals of Emergency Preparedness Infection Control Training (Continuous Education) Disaster Management Training (Continuous Education). Choosing me for your loved ones would be the best gift ever.
