I starting working as a caregiver over 7 years ago, when my mother got ill. At that time I was a deer in headlights. Since then, I decided to pay it forward, and help ease the pain other families were going through. I've become close with the families that trusted me to care for their parents. Being able to grant people their wishes to live in their own home (instead of a nursing home) brings me great joy, and satisfaction. References available upon request.

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.

As a dedicated caregiver to elderly residents of assisted living and memory care communities, I am an excellent match to the caregiver opening positions, Since 2012 I have worked as a caregiver where I assist residents with dementia and Alzheimer's disease with daily living needs, which include providing services to aid in memory care, physical care and psycho-emotional care optimizing residents' quality of life. Deeply committed to treating my elderly clients with dignity and respect, my goal is to win their trust and alleviate any embarrassment or anxiety they may feel when needing assistance with bathing, toileting, grooming or other personal care. I also excel at planning creative activities customized to resident needs and physical/mental abilities. Examples include pet visits from a nearby animal shelter, game nights, outdoor concerts, card tournaments, art and yoga classes, spa days and makeover sessions. It can be challenging at times, but I truly enjoy working with elderly residents. Though I strive to make a meaningful difference in the lives of the residents, the ongoing lessons I have learned from them have in return made a lasting impact in my life.

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.
