I have worked with mainly elderly patients in ophthalmology for 32 years. I have become very close to to alot of my patients. I became close friends with an elderly neighbor who had no family in this country. I took her to her doctor appointments and was with her when she passed away. I am still very close to some of the patients who I worked with. I have helped with my mother's care when I have visited her in Florida where she lives with my sister. She requires help walking and also showering. She and I love to play cards! I am also a CASA volunteer.
What makes me a great caregiver to me are I will go above and beyond for my residents a are whomever I work for. I am a perfectionist down to the last detail. What 1st attracted me to being a caregiver was my Grandmother she was an LPN up until her 2nd Surgery and was very proud of beinging an LPN. What solidified my beinging a caregiver are a CNA was my oldest son which put me in the role early on of becoming a caregiver He was had to have several surgeries do to a rare Gastrointestinal situation which caused him to be on An IV at all times, a feeding tube and a colostomy Bag for while but not anymore he is 16 now and will be celebrating 17 years of life in 6 month with none of the above. What I enjoy most about being a caregiver is simply just the pure love of being able to help someone out period. Being able to see my 1st patient my oldest son see 16 and knowing it was partly my aiding in his care that got him to this milestone in his life is my personal achievement.
My kindness and patience help provide your loved one companionship and help them to live with dignity. I studied geriatrics and have always admired seniors. Quality, professional wellness care is a priority. My proudest moments were taking care of my parents and aunts, helping them to remain independent and relevant in their declining years. BAS, MA
I am a happy and funny person,upbeat,like to sing. I am sensitive and listen well. I can usually come up with good ideas on making something easier to do or more efficient. I'm gentle. What attracted me to home care was all my family and friends telling me how good I would be at it. So tried it with a part time help with a lady with dementia/alzheimer's, her daughter saw how great I was with her mother and hired me full time. From there I learned so much.She would get confused sometimes angry even sad, we worked together to figure it out, her and I . That's where compassion and patience comes in. I Started taking care of a child w/cerebral palsy part time as well. What I enjoy about being a caregiver is knowing I'm helping someone's life to be a little easier,keeping them comfortable and hopefully a little laughter and a smile is really great. Knowing I have made a difference means a great deal. I have had many great achievements in this line of work. One of them was when a client was starting to have a stroke, I caught it quickly and my training from several weeks back with the Red Cross on Abuse and Neglect, First Aid and CPR came rushing back and I just went into action. Once the ambulance was there and one of the other employees told them all I did, They said I did everything right! I did a good job! Wow,that felt great and was thankful I somehow remembered all I had learned. I didn't even realize what I had done till I heard them saying it, but most of all, she(my client) was ok. I have worked with 6-7 different senior's and 3 young adults within last ten years. I have gone through drug screening and willing to again for any client your cost. That sums up some of me,any questions let me know.

I think the traits that make me a good candidate for caregiver are that I am empathetic to the client's situation, understanding that I am their to assist the client' in achieving their goals, and I'm an active listener and truly try to get a view of the entire situation going on. I have worked with many different populations with stronger emphases in mental health, developmental disabilities, and addiction and recovery. I have worked with clientele as young as 18 and as old as 90, so I am rather comfortable working with any age group.
I became a caregiver many years ago by volunteering at first at nursing homes. I went on to get licensed so I could do more for others. I like having a job caring for others. I love helping others when they can no longer care for themselves, assisting them makes my job worth while; keeping them healthy and happy is my goal. I used to volunteer at a facility and I had the chance to bond with the elderly, they were in need of companionship and a friendly smile. I've worked in all kinds of situations with the disabled, elderly,sick and hospice patients. I have alot of experience with dementia, hospice, adl's,transferring patients and medications. I love being apart of their lives, I am a compassionate and caring person. I'm most proud of being able to provide the care needed for my sister and my mothers passin along with many others . I'd consider myself to being a self motivator. Very energetic and an overall happy person. I'm very dedicated to my clients. I live a good life and i'm always happy to help others live best they can. I have alot of patience and empathy. I've experienced alot in my own life that use to help me with my job if caring for others. I like to keep busy but can also sit and just listen . I also continue to do in services and trainings to learn new skills and keep my skills sharp.
Hello everyone, I'm a dynamic, fun-loving, compassionate, individual , excited to assist with improving the quality of life of your loved one. I've been a caregiver in the Johnson County area for 10 years and i enjoy what I do! I believe in taking my time and giving each individual quality care that they deserve. Our seniors have dedicated their whole lives to hard work and creating the opportunities that we enjoy today. So it is an honor to give back and return that same dedication. And someday when we all grow in age we'll need someone to care for us. I'm looking forward to meeting and working the families of The Greater Kansas City Area!
