My name is Chris Wilson, I was born in New Orleans and lived half of my life in Tampa, Florida, moving here to Michigan to be closer to my fiance Kellie. I've always been a care giver my whole life, it seems. Firstly with my Father and his diabetes then my two younger brothers whenever they needed it. After my Father died in 1996, I took an even larger role in their lives, often making them lunches for school or helping them with homework when needed. I love to cook, build family trees, and to just be a good lean on to whomever needs it. I am a firm believer that everyone needs someone, anyone to be around because no one deserves to be alone.
I am an experienced certified field medical assistant and phlebotomist whose looking for an opportunity to assist in family home care. I have over ten years of experience in both in-home and clinical home care. I am a multi-tasker, a team player and I am truly reliable! I am looking forward to this great opportunity!
20yrs as a Medical Assistant I have grown and learned so much about myself. Right out of school from Ross Medical I went into UofM cancer center. I floated from clinic to clinic. In the cancer center while they would recieve their chemo treatments is where I had an opportunity to get to know the patience. I could help by listening to them. Sometimes that's all they wanted. Having extreme patience, understanding, and empathy are major tools in this field I believe. Floating to different fields I've learned which field I wanted to be in. I went in an altimerz home. Each home had its level of severity of the disease. The section with the most challenges was my fit. Some couldn't speak. I wanted to find a way to understand what they want. After time and patience I'd succeed. That madw my lifetime.Then I found an add for home care. Went to my first client I knew where my place was. From there I went to work for myself. Now he didn't have altimerz but a stroke. I was there introduced to physical therapy. I worked side by side with the physical therapist and the therapist that works with stroke patience brain and how it works connecting their thoughts to the rest of their body. It was like I was in school again but better. That's where I learned extreme patience. Increased my empathy and understanding. I see a man that has altimerz and bound to the wheel chair. He can still transfer by standing and turning. His wife was starting to have a real hard time transferring him. He wasn't standing all they way. Especially in the car. Alot outside to get distracted by. His wife and I just worked on our patience and pray he pulls up. One day, after trying and watching different ways, I mentioned he was hot. I told him if he stands up to get in car he'd cool off. He moved so fast we couldn't believe it. That technique that has been working. A reward or promise of something better. It makes my heart sing to make a connection.

1.I became a caregiver because my grandmother and great grandmother were becoming sick and could no longer perform daily activities by themselves. 2.I really enjoy the relationships that I build with my clients. Everyone that I have met is very sweet with beautiful personalities! 3.A personal achievement that I am very proud of was becoming a honor student at my school, I am currently finishing up my Medical Assistant program and as of this month I am the valedictorian of my class. 4. I absoloutely love helping others and building relationships with clients. I have a passion for being a caregiver. As i mentioned before I have family members that I assist with daily and I cherish each moment of it. I can honestly say that i am also a life coach. Rather its helping someone with a daily task such as a household chore or encouraging one not to give up on a short term goal.

I became a caregiver because of my sentimental value that I have for people that can't perform the daily functions/duties throughout our daily lives. What I like most about being a caregiver is helping and caring for another individual that needs assistance. One of my personal achievements are getting people to get back to the things that they use to do. I'm a caring, reliable, and loving individual and I pride myself on respect and hard work.

I'm a go-getter. I do become attached to my Patients & I treat them with Happiness & respect & I give them a reason to keep going there trying time!:) All of my clients have gave me a excellent word after the job is completed. I also do long term & some Hospice cases. Thanks for your time & reading my Profile. I Also give great rates & I go above & beyond my duties!:)
