My career was in business. I retired at a young age. I went into the health care industry from a suggestion of a relative who worked at a large local hospital. I worked there for 6 years and cared for hundreds of patients each having different illnesses. This background caused me to decide I would like to become an independent provider due to my experience. I particularly enjoy caring for elderly men with dementia. What I've found is their long term memories are interesting and have heard interesting stories especially from WWll veterans. I try to become "part of the family" with each patient. I try my best to help each patient maintain their dignity, be comforting, gain their confidence provide friendship and assure a safe environment. In all my past working experiences caregiving is my most satisfying.
I am kind . I have worked with alot of different types of personalities thru out the years . I can adjust to fit all. I am loving for I was raised by grandparents and they to me are our biggest treasures. I love doing what I do been doing it 19 years. I always treat my clients with the same empathy respect and kindness as my own. And appreciate families that choose to continue to take care for there family members. So I try to help as much as possible to help things run smooth. So that can continue. I love what I do . I do the upmost to keep independency as much as possible. It is important . It gives them the sense of purpose confidence. I've worked with bed ridden patients . Alzheimer's dementia diabetes ,amputees etc. I never leave someone's home without being sure I have left them with a smile on there face. I love making people smile and always even in a line making someone smile . That might need it. I am very out going. Self motivated and do things that need to be done . Very observant and always take the chance to make someones quality of life better . By observing lessening.

Hi I have been a caregiver for 16 years I love my job because I love making people happy, everyone goes through things in life and just to see that u can make someone else happy that's what attracted me to being a great caregiver I like to see smiles. One thing I'm proud of is being a great parent and a strong patient person.
I'm a very open and honest person, and I always do my very best at anything I am tasked with. I look at everything from outside of the box, and I always try to make sure that I listen to concerns, and brainstorm different ideas for obstacles of everyday life. I do have children with different medical conditions, so multitasking, being patient, researching, and keeping calm during stressful situations is a strong point for me. My goal is to make sure that I have completed my work and also make my clients happy. I am certified in First Aid, CPR/AED, Basic Life Support, Bloodborne pathogens. I am also a certified STNA (State Tested Nurse Aide). I have about 6 years or more experience under my belt as a caregiver.
I am a loyal individual and I treat each elder as I would desire to be treated. In the past I have taught multiple individuals identified with special needs. Teaching in this field has taught me to be comfortable and accepting of people in a diverse world. I am most competent in my abilities to care for Elders with varying challenges. I am also creative in the ways I assist Elders, so that they enjoy doing activities that they might otherwise choose not to do. I like to converse with the people I am with, to engage them in activities that challenge their minds and bodies while having fun.

I became a caregiver simply because I've always enjoyed taking care of people. When I was a little girl, I would take care of my mother when she became ill. She always encouraged me to become a nurse. Being a great caregiver is having compassion, a desire to ensure the well being of others and being dedicated to providing excellent care. I'm extremely proud of having four successful years of homecare experience as a Certified Nursing Assistant and I'm hoping to acquire many more.
I started giving care at a younger age, taking care of my auntie with a left-sided weakness due to stroke. It was within the family and a non-profit payment job but a rewarding one. I believe giving care is a calling not just a job. I felt a very great joy to be part of her life and assisting her with the rest of my family before her passing. It became part of me and decided to continue to give a helping hands to those who needed it, within my capabilities. You do unto others, as you wish to be done to you.

I have been a caregiver over 20 years (long term, rehab, old timers unit patients, and etc). I care about the elderly and people that need help and cannot help themselves. Having parents that died in their 60's from cancer it was nice having the experience to be able to take care of them from their homes. Have done homecare over 5 years and really enjoyed working with the family's.
