About Theresa

I enjoy and love the passion of being a caregiver because I enjoy and love working with different clients or individuals with different disabilities and/or different health concerns to learn and educate myself about their disabilities/health issues. Being a caregiver attracts me to interact with them one on one and working with them to make a potential difference in their lives. I enjoy being a caregiver as well to increase my self confidence and self worth knowing that someone relies on me taking care of them. My personal achievement as a caregiver that I am truly proud of was helping a client that was unable to walk on her own due stroke. Difficult tasks such as bathing, grooming, personal hygiene tasks and simple tasks such as holding a spoon. Helping the client to overcome the fear of failing or giving up, I was able to help and work with her daily to improve and accomplish the goal of her getting back on track. I am proud to say, the client has come a very long way and therefore was able to walk on her own using a walker, minimal use of wheelchair as well and perform all tasks without any issues and with someone by her side monitor her for any health concerns that may arise.

Hi. My name is Becky. I have been a caregiver for over 20 years and still love it. I have a heart and passion for working with the elderly. I love helping them with their daily lives, chores, (helping with bathing, dressing, light house cleaning, cooking and feeding. Medicine reminders or giving medicine to them)and keeping them active. I have worked with clients that range with nothing wrong they just wanted companionship to ones who have dementia, and on hospice care. It makes me happy knowing that I can help them and help their families and giving them a break when they need one. I understand being a caregiver is a hard job and can be overwhelming at times for families. If I can help them out that is what I want to do. I love hearing their stories and about the old days for them.
