I think one of my greatest Gifts, attributes, and My Proudest Strengths is my Love and Compassion for Children and the Elderly. It fills my heart with joy to watch a child giggle or an elderly person laugh knowing that they are loved and being taken care of by me. I helped my Mom care for my Dad when he was diagnosed with Scleroderma. For over 2 years I administered his many medicines, checked his vitals, oxygen levels and his breathing treatments. I also helped my Mom take him to Vanderbilt for his many appointments. Even though he passed from this horrific disease I felt Blessed that he knew I was there with him and My Mom taking Loving care of him. My current elderly couple I have been caring for are moving in with their children so they can be closer. I desire to stay in a caregiver position for the elderly as I feel that God has given me this Gift to help the elderly have laughter and joy in their aging years. I also receive Blessings and Knowledge from them as they talk about their journeys through life. I have a deeper sense about true hardships and sacrifices our elderly have endured to make our lives better.
I first started out through Addus Health Care in Marion, Illinois. At the time I did not know what I was really doing, it was just a starter job until I could find the job that I was truely looking for. Within the first couple of weeks that Addus Health Care, they were sending me to different clients homes, it took a little while for me to start feeling comfortable. The people who I got to come in contact with, and help with their daily living schedules; were so nice and so good to me; they were so loving, and it was the people who showed me so much love who made me want to show all my love back and they made me want to help them; but most of all through all the months and years that I had devoted my life with these people; it became where I just didn't want to share my love with them; I needed to show them because I need them as much as they need me. I love helping other people and getting to become a special part of their lives and families. I continued my education into CNA and CPR classes and have graduated, and am now State Certified through Tennessee.
