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.

I am compassionate at heart and have natural passion to care for aging seniors and those that are physically, emotionally and mentally challenged. It is my great pleasure to see, especially seniors, age with smooth independence, dignity and peace . I believe Carelinx is best media for me to get best opportunities for my heart-desires. Apparently, while growing up as a teenager, in my parents's home, and living with a very ill grandmother, I had no choice but naturally gained a caring-heart, as well as gathered some kind of nursing-discipline, just to help my very sickly grandmother with chores of companionship, some activities of daily-living like bathing, safety-precautions while walking around the house and out in the yard, when my parents were busy with their corporate jobs. Personally, I am kind, patient, reliable, skilled for my job and professional.
