I believe that I am a great person that cares for life and other people in this world no matter of race, age, or challenges that one faces through the journey of our life in this earth. I am a Personal Care Aide and became a Caregiver due to finding myself helping my parents with basic daily living activities like, going grocery shopping, talking them to doctor appointments, assist with light cleaning, paying some bills and spending a few hours just visiting and talking to them about anything in mind. I enjoy being a Caregiver because I like it, have a caring nature, am respectful, reliable, trustworthy, and just like helping people in any way that I can. I am proud of myself that I have received a Clinical Medical Assistant certification. I have also, received a certification as a Home Care Aide with sixty-six hours of education and training. I do on going education in Health and am always learning new things and as well. I have three references if needed. I have cared for two elderly men one in his seventies and the other in his eighties. I have not just cared for my parents too but also, children and teenagers as well. I had volunteered as a Foster Mentor to a 13 year old teen and also was a Mentor for an 11 year old boy through Big Brothers Big Sisters organization. You can feel free to contact me with a call, text or email. We can then set a time to meet/greet to discuss my professional experience and see how I may or may not help you out with a loved one for care needs. Thank for your time in reading a bit on myself. If you like to hire me please offer to pay for the Background Check and I can give you a copy. -Rico
Hi! My name is Kerry, I have over 18 years of experience in healthcare with over 10 of them helping the elderly, disabled, those with dementia & on hospice care. I love to just make my patients lives, day or hour better, easier & happier for them, especially considering when it is not possible for them to be without care & support, & living an independent life on their own anymore. The people I care for are more than just my clients, they become my friends & extended family! I think of how I would want someone to take care of my own parents, & that's how I take care of my clients. Treat people how you would like to be treated is my motto! I love to talk with my clients, listen to their stories, & learn about their lives & what makes them who they are! I'm a CNA (certified nursing assistant), caregiver & a former nursing student (which has given me great training in vitals, medication management, skin & wound care, health assessments without the client even knowing that that's what I'm doing, & I'm extremely comfortable taking them to the doctor appointments to take notes & talk with the staff as needed). And through my past work experience, I've been fingerprinted & have had consistent clear background checks & I've even been checked & cleared through the rigorous scrutiny of DCFS & DHS! I also have a resume, reference list & reference letters readily available upon request! I look forward to getting to know you & your loved one!
