I'am a great caregiver because I'am a very responsible, knowledgeable, dedicated and compassionate, loving individual who is very proud of the work I do. My best achievement in being a caregiver is the satisfaction and positive healing and caring that patient and family has expressed towards the service that I have done for them and knowing that being a nurse is the best decision I have made for myself and my family and to whoever has been affected and been involved in the process.
I currently work part time at Katella deli in Los Alamitos. Prior to that I worked at Marie Callenders restaurant for 7 years. I left them to care for my terminally ill grandmother. She has since passed away. My goal is to do licensed in home care. I enjoy helping people feel independent and well cared for.
I'm an LVN in early retirement. I want to work with a person who needs my help. I have worked many years with handicapped patients. Now I want to do all of the work that is involved in taking care of a person who need help, not just in the medical aspectbut also in their household need. I love to cook and clean real good. I love plants and pets.
I wanted to be caregiver because it's in my nature to care for others. Since i was young i enjoyed taking care of my grandparents, my nieces and nephews. With the elders, I enjoy helping them, listening to their stories and learning from their experiences. I love to laugh with them, taking care of their needs. The word "thank you" from them means a lot to me. It's not just about recognition but a fulfillment that i did something good to them. Being apart from my own parents sometimes makes me feel sad and so when I'm with my patients I make sure that I take good care of them because it's like caring for my own parents too. It makes me feel good when i make them feel comfortable and well taken care of coz that's really important. Sometimes our elders may not need the most intelligent person but rather they need to be surrounded by the people who can truly care for them and can patiently understand their needs especially when they are not feeling good. I am proud to say that for just 2 years of being a caregiver i believe that I able to serve well my patients and their families. With my honest, true and sincere dedication to my work, I know somehow i did a great impact to their lives in a good way. I believe that it's not how long you been a caregiver but it is how you value your work and your patients. I eventually became an LVN coz i know i can help more if I learned more.

When I worked as a nurse I was able to learn excellent communication skills, patient (customer) care, along with organization, and written skills. With my volunteer work, I have been able to increase my network with others and learned further leading skills. While doing my volunteer work I have discovered my love in teaching and am currently striving to become a high school teacher. Since I am currently going to a university I am looking for a part-time job that will not interfere with school. I still love taking care of people and want to help others.
