Hi! Welcome to my page. Let me first tell you alittle about myself so you can measure if I would be a perfect fit for your family/ loved one. I've been in healthcare for over 10 years working in different settings from Rehabilitation, Nursing homes, Chiropractic care to individuals with disabilities. My roommate in College has Cerebral palsy so I helped her daily with your needs. I'm very familiar with many other disabilities as well. I am happily married now just wanting to offer help for others. I understand completely wanting to meet me first before so you can decide if I would be a good fit. That's no problem at all. I have recently submitted a back ground check so I can show proof of my clean history. I genuinely love people and helping others is my passion in life. I have worked as a Medical Assistant for agencies in the past however I find this way allows the family to choose who they feel most comfortable around. I have graduated with a Degree in Human Services with a minor in Disabilities. I'm an open person so your welcome to ask me questions or concerns you way have about myself. Enjoy your day! **Available on Friday's after 12 and Saturdays **

I love taking care of others of all ages. I have a great attitude. Caring for others makes me feel good about myself. Taking care of my mother, grandmother, mother-in-law grandmother-in-law until they all died made me proud of myself. When I do patient care I feel self worth it's knowing that I can help someone who can't help themselves. Being someone's companion is a Great responsibility an should never be taken lightly.

I have always had great compassion for those who are sick, the elderly, and disabled. I began my caregiving by volunteering for Hospice for seven years. CNAs happily taught me how to do bed baths, empty urinals, and even how to change bed linens with patient still in bed. I am comfortable, and have experience in just about all facets of caregiving, which includes personal hygiene, including bathing, feeding, safely transferring patient from bed to chair, etc. I am comfortable using a Hoyer lift, and have changed and sanitized urine bags. Upon moving to a new city I began doing home caregiving as a way of paying my bills, and family recommendations kept me busy. I have enjoyed caring for the ELDERY with all kinds of medical problems, and DISABLED people, as well. In addition to passing the background check required for this site, I have a LEVEL II BACKGROUND CHECK which is far deeper than this site requires. I have taken and passed the HHA test, although I did not take the class. I am CPR certified, have had a two step TB test, I presently work for a local caregiving agency, but they are unable to provide me with enough hours, so I am eager to get full time hours! I have many references I can give if you are interested in knowing more. I prefer days, but I am open for any schedule.

I am a nurturer by nature. I get a sense of fulfillment when caring for others. One trait that sets me aside would be my ability to meet each individual client where they are in their current state, remembering no two are the same. After working inpatient transportation within a hospital for years, I saw there was a greater need for me at the bedside. I always seem to be able to connect with the patients and that is what prompt me to go to school and become a CNA. Becoming a certified nursing assistant was one of my greatest accomplishments. It is a career I enjoy, I am never bored and I always feel there will be a need for me.

I have experience taking care of couples as well as individuals, men, and women. I love dogs and have one at home. I do not take clients who smoke. I like the day or night shift, and I am available for work overnights for 8-12 hour shifts either in a home or in a facility. Also available days but I do not burn the candle at both ends. The age of my clientele has ranged from 3 to 104. Wherever you are I can go to get to you. If you are in a facility and you want me there I can be there. I am a huge advocate for my clients and I have a zero tolerance policy for maltreatment or neglect. I also will not allow anyone to exploit or abuse a client without reporting it to the proper authorities. I have advanced training in Alzheimer's and dimentia as well as Occupational Therapy degree holder as of December 2019 I am currently taking on new clients.

Best traits that I have in being a great caregiver are Patience. Those who provide home care to others need to be patient. Being patient means that the person understands that there may be changes in plans, things may not go as quickly as planned, and there may be a little hesitation at times on the part of the person receiving care. Compassion, When someone has compassion for another they have an understanding of what the person is going through. Attentiveness, I think It is important when providing home care that the caregiver is attentive to the needs and changes that are taking place. By being attentive, the caregiver, will notice when there are emotional or physical changes in the person he or she is caring for. Dependability, I feel as though those who need home care don't usually just need it sporadically. Rather it is on a regular basis, so it is imperative that a caregiver be dependable and show up to provide the care that the person needs and is counting on. Last but not least Trustworthiness, Caregivers are often in a position that will allow them to have access to the belongings of the person they are caring for. It is crucial that the caregiver be someone who is trustworthy and will not breach that trust by taking advantage of the person her or she is caring for. I enjoy doing work that has the potential to make a difference in someone's life. I take pride in my attention to detail.

A good caregiver is someone who is trustworthy in this regard, as well as in being trusted to keep the client's information confidential. It is essential that a caregiver feel the desire to want to help. By showing both empathy and compassion, caregivers will let the person know that they care about them and want to do what they can to help. The most I enjoying about caregiving is begin there to actually help someone feel independent and give them that urge to get thrm back feeling independent again. The personal achievement I'm proud of it begin able to go to go back to nursing school

I am 22 years old . " Oh My " Yes I am young . I have 1 child . I have been a caregiver off and on for 7 years in between going to school and taking care of my daughter which had some medical issues . But every since I was a young girl my great aunt had became sick and everyone else was working so after school or on the weekend I was there to help her out . I loved doing it . I have a very very very soft spot for people that's needs someone to help them either with personal needs, just want company, or want someone come and run out and do things that they are no able to do. So now I'm trying to build a career from this.
