My name is Destine tijean and I enjoy meeting new people and finding ways to help them have an uplifting experience. People find me self-motivated team player, caring and kind. I am dedicated person, outgoing, patient and compassionate. I have worked with so many families with different backgrounds, religion, and nationalities while working at Brighstar agency. I enjoy working as HHA because I love people and I love the fact I can help another human being. I learn from my patients as well. My personal achievement that I am most proud of is when a patient thank me and tells me that I change her life for the best.
1. When a patient goes to the doctor and have to hear very bad news and suffer from extreme pain, they need a happy face and support. As a caregiver, it's my duty to offer the kind of support and passion that they do not receive in the hospitals. I became a caregiver because I care and I want to offer my help. 2. I like the organizing of daily schedules but most of all I like to keep my clients active especially the elderly. I have researched to prominent causes of increased diseases and pain in elderly clients and the one thing they all have in common is being sedentary. So I enjoy getting my clients active to reduce stress, pain, and increase longevity. 3. I am proud when my clients want me to return. When they are happy with my services and are excited in me returning. 4. I am currently working on gaining more education by becoming a nurse and then later I hope to become a physician assistant.
Personality - This is the single most important ingredient to consider. Caregivers need an innate sense of selflessness and empathy, and sometimes what may seem like a natural personality fit can be deceiving. Most people have a good degree of human compassion but only those with the right set of inner ingredients can voluntarily sustain themselves over time. Don't assume that one personality type is best until you have experience with it. Look for "sweetness," a willingness to serve, an absence of "attitude," and the patience to weather a patient's bad days. Be leery of people who stipulate non-medical tasks they won't do. With the exception of injections, wound care and dispensing medication out of prescription containers, there should not be much they won't do. It's their attitude toward work that matters most. Reliability - Caregivers work largely unsupervised. Hourly caregivers can run into all manner of obstacles in getting to and from their assignment locations and excuses abound. Prior references will provide clues as to whether or not they can be relied upon. Take this seriously but not too seriously. References can provide a measure of what will happen when you are not around but a lot of people are reluctant to disclose negative characteristics about former caregivers. They are unwilling to expose themselves to possible recrimination and often don't want to harm someone's chance to make a living. Honest, caring,loving these some the things that makes me a good care giver.... Being a caregiver for 28 years has helped me in so many ways, I have worked in Hospitals, Nursing home Facilities, Private Duty, etc. I love what I do in helping each client I've ever worked with. Taking care of sick people that needs my help gives me joy in my heart and it let me know they need people to work with them that care.

I CAN PROUDLY SAY THAT I'VE HELPED SEVERAL PEOPLE INCLUDING MY GRANDMOTHER BEFORE SHE PASSED. I SPECIFICALLY BECAME A CAREGIVER SO I CAN BE CERTIFIED AT WHAT I DO BEST.
The ability to be someones caregiver is the most rewarding career. The opportunity to help patient improve their daily living activities, all hard work caregivers put forth on a daily basis is all made worthwhile, with the patient gaining independence or simply seeing a smile on the patient's face. I am passionate about improving the quality of life for each of my patient and that is a constant reminder that I am following my heart by being a caregiver. My goal is to give my patients the best care possible and the assurance that I will go above and beyond to make sure my patients are well taken care of.

Have been in the Medical Field 30yrs, started from the ground up. First worked @ "JFK Hospital", when CNAs were "grandfathered in" as you were in Nursing Program & passed "Fundamentals of Nursing". After a particular point of the program, "Med-Surg Nursing" the Hospital considered you, a " Nurse Tech" , upon completion of the PBJC Nursing Program, I sat for RN-NCLEX. Didn't pass the 1st time. I was given a suggestion to sit for LPN Boards & passed them. Due to changes in health care structure, & financial issues, JFK wouldn't hire me as an LPN. It was bought out,and kept only certain amt of CNA's by Seniority, letting me go in the process. I had to wait till the area Nursing Homes would hire as LPN jobs were scarce & they were looking for RNs. I sat again for RN NCLEX, & passed and then applied @ a Rehab/LTC have been in either there, an ALF, 3 Nursing Agencies, several other Rehab/LTC & done Private Duty Care for 4 Elderly Parents & a Private Client for the past 10yrs as well. I am also a Certified Florida Notary Public some of duties have helped Patients with Wills, End of Life decision Making etc. My biggest thing about being a great Caregiver is treat the Client like they ARE your Family member,which earns their trust, & makes them MORE comfortable with you giving care to them. This way I can treat my Client as a "Whole Person" not just their Illness.This Includes: their Spirtual, Emotional, Psychological, besides the Physical Needs.
