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.
My compassion, empathy , patience, and dependability helps with being a great caregiver. After learning to provide care for my sibling with Autism and Cerebral Palsy I've been attracted to being able to be a caregiver. The most rewarding part of being a caregiver is providing compassionate care for each client. My proudest achievement is learning new knowledge from each clients circumstances.
This will be my first time to be a caregiver , however, being Filipino, we are used to caring for the elders and the ones in need.. I am patient, willing to give care and comfort sincerely. I have handled hundreds of students in dancing so I listen to everyone's needs. I am 58 years old, have grown up children so have the experience to take care of people. I am very flexible , friendly and adaptable... I can drive, can dance, can exercise , can shop and deal well with people. I seek peace and am very positive.
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. Most recently, for over a year, I worked with 2 female clients. One client is 98 with visual and hearing impairments, diabetes and mild dimentia. I was responsible for taking daily glucose readings, keeping records of her medical data/appointments/medication dispensing. I cooked her a hearty breakfast and we ate together. I introduced her to a game called "WordCross" and she loved to play every day with me. It was great for her mind and was a good social experience as well. Another client had early stage Alzheimers, but was highly functional. I provided companionship, meal preparation for her and her husband, fixed her hair, walked outside with her, did their grocery shopping, and occasionally we enjoyed shopping/lunch trips together. I have additional experience working with clients that have terminal cancer. I not only met their specific physical needs, but created an environment for them which brought them comfort and peace during the most difficult time of their lives. What made me most aware of the needs of seniors was when my own grandmother was near the end of her life. I helped her daily with dressing, grooming, feeding, 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 look forward to visiting with you to see how I could help meet the needs of your loved one, Amy

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 am a very compassionate and patient caregiver with 17 years of experience helping to care for individuals with Alzheimer's and other forms of dementia. I began providing care when a close friend of mine needed help caring for her sick mother. I worked with this sweet lady for seven and a half years in which I refined my caregiving skills. The bond that I build with all of my clients is unmistakably genuine and sweet. Over my career I have cared for 15 different people and each one of them and the experiences that we have shared has helped to enrich my ability to care for the next one. I am also a proud mother of two wonderful children and that in itself speaks volume about my ability to care for others. I truly care for my clients as if they were a part of my own family.
Being a caregiver for 17 + years is such an honor and has helped me in so many ways. It's all about putting away my needs to assist others. I love what I do in helping each client I've ever worked with and knowing what I did brought them joy and happiness is priceless. I am very patience, compassions, attentiveness, dependability and trustworthiness. The moments when you reflect back and see how you have helped someone is what CAREGIVING is all about!!
