I became a caregiver after a family friend asked me to become a caretaker for her brother in 2015. That was a major blessing that has taken me on a different path in life. I worked with him for two years until he was moved to an adult family home, then I worked at an assisted living facility, and am now working as a home care aide with an agency. I enjoy working with people and being of help to others. I have worked with clients from all age groups but I particularly enjoy working with the older population because of their life experiences and wealth of wisdom. I recently completed my pre-requisites for the nursing program at Bellevue College. My goal is to become a nurse so that I can help people to a greater degree.

Hello my name is alondra, and I have alot of experiences working with elderly people! What makes me be a great caregiver is the love I have for helping people in need, also having patiences and understanding people. I am really responsible in anything I do I take my job really serious I always make sure I treat each client with respect and fairness, overall I love helping as much as i can even if its bathing to cleaning to company even grocerie shopping etc. What attracted me to being a caregiver was my mom shes been doing this type of work all her life and I have always looked up to her wanting to be like her and I would see everything she had to do when I was able to go to work with her and I loved the feeling of being able to help someone and the connections that are made and how doing something small can impact the life of yourself and the client you help. Its been my dream all my life to be able to get opportunities and work with as much clients as I can. What I enjoy most about being a caregiver is being everything to people who cant do things for themselves, too help them with anything they need at all times. I believe what makes me Different is that i do my job extremely well but also with a lot of heart i am passionate when it Comes to being a caregiver it is not just a job for me.
A caregiver of seven years trained to handle a variety of health and behavioral situations, I am aware of the impulse of families to want to ensure the health and well-being of loved ones. The help may just call for daily living activities with extra touches that make life worthwhile: decent exercise, tasty healthy meals, a clean, pleasant environment, a good listener and conversationalist, and kind, competent care. Some situations, however, require attending to seemingly insignificant, but crucial tasks, such as reminders to drink enough liquids, to move body and limbs periodically to avoid pressure points and muscle atrophy. I believe my care is dispensed with respect, kindness, and purpose, mindful their need for such greater than ever. A general "How are you?" might be followed with a specific "Do you feel dizzy",; and too long a spell on the couch will suggest an exercise or outside to smell the roses. The idea, above all, is to provide for the well-being of body and soul. A wise tip I learned is to give old people something to look forward to, whether a fun treat or an item in their bucket list. It may not always be possible, but sometimes, even just trying helps. My career history is eclectic, but caregiving suits me because I believe I make a difference in the lives of those in my care; more often than not, the tables are turned to make me pay attention. I consider my charges' health and well-being challenges, such as easing a cynic's attitude with kindness or making one's last days a comfort. By researching and learning about their ailments before I take over, I make certain I "do no harm". I have gained hands on and annual online training from Home Health Aide courses and nurse delegated work. An energetic, resourceful worker, I offer empathy, kindness, and a bright outlook. They are what I gave my mom, now lovingly sent off to join dad, with plenty to spare for others.

Have developed and it has been my interest to not only work with elders and others but also to fellowship with them as well. I found it interesting and lovely especially when they tell those old stories and their words of wisdom great asset.
I had to take care of my own parents when they both required extensive home care due to Alzheimers and learned then how vital it is to fully understand these afflications and how to deal with them for the best quality of life and dignity and comfort of those elderly. I enjoy interacting with those that have lived long and interesting lives and I recognize the need to return the help and care to them after they have spent a lifetime helping others. I especially enjoy interacting with the family of those elders that I care for and providing appropriate assistance to them also in regards dealing with their elderly relatives and the end of life situations that occur. I have personally dealt with over 15 hospice situations and made the end of life transition smooth and dignified and compassionate for all involved. I have found that through improving the quality and enjoyment of daily life for elderly that they simply do better and enjoy living. No matter what the circumstances, and no matter how far gone they are, they still respond to care and love and appropriate attention and return such in whatever way they are still able to. I spent most of my life working in construction in all trades and all levels up to Management and Supervision. I retired from that sort of physical activity due to some aggravated injuries and found that there is a vast need for compassionate and understanding care and assistance needed for elderly. Since I am not so far removed from the elderl
