I grew up going to work with my mother as she was a caregiver for the angel network. I learned the importance of patience, empathy and integrity. Caregiving is not always easy, if your caregiver doesn't appreciate this field; in my opinion your senior will not be properly Cared for. I enjoy finding a way to help my senior accomplish a task without making them feel like less of a person or embarrassed. Your loved one should always feel respected, heard, and safe. My approach to aggression, sadness, confusion, etc. is meeting your loved ones emotions and needs on their level. I quickly assess the problem and get back to a trusting common ground. Sometimes all they want Is their feelings acknowledged. This ensures they feel equal and helps keep their sense of dignity. A caretakers most important quality should be compassion and focus. When I walk through your door my phone is off and I'm ready for the day. I will treat your loved one as if she/he were my own family. I have been doing this for several years now and I've witnessed many different styles of care. Positive attitude is key. Keeping my calm helps your loved one to trust me. It's important to me they feel I am happy to be with them. Nobody wants to feel babysat. I pride myself on being able to care without the patient feeling embarrassed or overwhelmed. I try my best to help you feel safe leaving your loved one in my care. Open communication helps your family feel you've made the correct choice and helps me feel comfortable doing my job. I chose caregiving because I love helping people. It is very rewarding even on the difficult days. I never lose my cool. This is important to avoid escalating the issue and causing frustration or anxiety for your loved one. Its rewarding to give you peace of mind. It is more than just a job for me. It is privilege and opportunity to make difference. My certifications and references are seller.

Well it started out personal for me , watching my grandmother get up in age, with no one to Care for her, and I realized that there are other's in her situation, I have an old soul, as a young girl I found it more interesting being around people much older than myself, but I also realize as they get older they get helpless and people seem to shy away from such and then they become lonely as well , so I took up a trade in 1990 and got my certificate to become a caregiver/housekeeper, that is something that I am very proud of and the best part of it all is making new friends, that is really in need of a true friend, and keeping those friendships for year's to come, in the comfort of their own homes . I'm looking for a full-time/part-time position, I am available to start ASAP Monday through Saturday afternoon & evening and sometimes late night hour's.
I believe I was born to be a caregiver. I was blessed in 1985 with a beautiful daughter with CP. (She passed in 2006) This gave me an insight into how hard it is to find a person who is in this profession for the right reasons. The two key words for me with any client are dignity and respect. I remember at all times that this is a human being who is loved and has loved. If dementia has changed their personality as it always does, I always remember that any behaviors are not the person but the disease. I have always been told that I have an inordinate amount of patience and I think that is true. I also respect the fact that the family has their own wishes and expectations and am very careful about not over stepping those boundaries.
I bacame a caregiver to help people my grand mother got sick and I took care of her till she passed away I'm am Avery loving caring person I'm compassionate I feel I would take care of a person the way I would want one of my family members taking care I am currently working at a assisted living facility I have been there for 2 years I have good people skills ive been employee of the month 3 times in 2016 all my residents tell me they love Ian a very happy pleasant person and I feel like any family that gives me a chance to help with one of there loved ones would appreciate the care I would give them
I'm a very caring woman and my personal thoughts are that our older generation needs to be taken care of because of all they have done for us I truly believe that is what is wrong with this world today the younger generation does not respect our elders The reason why I became a caregiver is personal I seen my great grandma and grandmother go into nursing homes and be left they were not taken care of and forgotten my Passion is to try to make every day a special day to make my clients feel like someone does care I'm not affraid of hard work I'm proud that when I either leave for the day or if I'm a live in caregiver that the person I'm taking care of is happy and safe and satisfied that's my goal to bring a little enjoyment in someone's life I'm very patient and I feel if we don't get it done on the first try I will not give up until the task is done
