I first started caregiving when I was 17. My first job was for glorias helping hands. At first i wasnt sure about how i felt about the type of work. I didnt have much experience as to what i was doing. I took some classes and got my rcs1 and crma first. Rcs1 is a residential care specialist and a CRMA is a certified residential medical assistant. As i learned more and worked more I realized that is was my passion to help others who may need some assistance in things they can no longer do. Honestly u really do have to have a passion for this type of work because u never know what could happen or what situation u may end up in. And some of the disabilities, and some health issues can be challenging. Ive been very lucky to continue and have worked and learned various disabilities, as well as illnesses. Today i have my rcs1, pss,cna, and also insulin certified, cpr certified, and first aid certified. I love knowing that I'm making a difference and im helping and am there for someone who needs some support and help in their life.
I have worked in the health care field for 28 years. I am kind, patient, understanding,compassionate, I have an ability to read people very well. It makes it much easier to assist people that may have difficulty expressing themselves. I am CNA,HHA, Medication, and Hospice certified.
I like helping others. I have a easy going personality. I love to laugh and make other people laugh. I take my job seriously and always give 100%. I have been taking care of people most of my life.

Hi, my name is Sydney and I am 21 years old! I started working as a LNA when I was 17 and I fell in love with caring for people.

I am a very compassionate person with a drive to make everyone smile and feel cared for! I first started as a caregiver back in 2009 and fell in love with being able to help people. I then developed my career into working with adults and children with developmental disabilities and behavioral disorders. I am certified as both a DSP and BHP. I have gotten my certifications in CPR/First Aid and also am certified as a CRMA. I constantly am wanting to learn more and better myself to help others. Some traits I feel make me a great caregiver are that I'm kind, trustworthy, reliable, patient, caring, and pretty positive! I like to see the best in any situation and learn from troubled ones.

I have been a caregiver for my whole career, starting fresh out of high school. I was very close with my grandmother, her parents, and my great-great grandmother which is why I believe I am a compassionate and diligent caregiver. I treat each member as I do my own family. I have been told by my residents that I am patient and attentive, and I strive to do my best by each of them. I chose this work because it fulfills my need to help others and to create strong bonds.
I was raised in a family of all nurses. I had a strong interest in helping others so I took the CNA course. I have been a CNA and have been actively working as a CNA since 2009. I have worked in all different types of settings, such as hospitals. nursing homes, private care duties, group homes, and home care. I love to give back to people that are in need of help. I love it sit and talk with people. I love what I do because it gives back to the community especially the elderly that need the extra help and have worked hard their whole lives. I'm recently married to my best friend. I was born and raised in Aroostook County, Maine until almost 3 years ago I relocated to southern maine for work reasons and of course to be with my now husband. I have an Associates Degree in Criminal Justice. Before I was a CNA I was a waitress for almost 5 years. I have great customer service skills. I enjoy reading, learning new things, and being outdoors. I love any outdoors activity.

I enjoy being a caregiver as it makes me feel I have made another person's life more manageable. I am proud that I have worked with numerous families and have bonded with so many.

Becoming a Caregiver was out of necessity, to fulfill one woman's simple request of not being placed into a nursing home. She had had a challenging childhood: daily nourishment often was tea and bread; coats were used as blankets during the evening. She persevered during her marriage, raising a brood of children while being the dutiful wife. So, when called upon, it was an opportunity to give back. I have found that I have great resolve, have not floundered in my integrity, and have given care with compassion and kindness. In doing so, I have been greatly rewarded.
When given the option to help or not I will always jump up to be the first to lend a hand. I have always had a love for helping others and enjoy the connections that can be made through a little tlc. My favorite thing about being a caregiver is knowing that I changed a persons day for the better. I am a very happy fun loving individual.
