I started caregiving at the age of 25 and I am now 35 and still in the home health industry. I love taking care of the elderly. I have almost 11 years experience with the elderly. I have worked with many different kinds of patients. I love that I can do the things for them that they can no longer do anymore, and just to see their smiling faces everyday when I show up to work. Knowing that I can make a change in their day to day lifes makes my heart rejoice.
I became a Caregiver because I enjoy nurturing, making people comfortable, happy thus making the Client realize how important that they are. This is my-calling. I've been in this line of work/volunteering since I was a mere 21 years old. I helped my mom take care of her family that were all stricken with Cancer. In later years I then took complete care of my mom when she was diagnosed and on Hospice. Transitioning for Clients/Family can be overwhelming with dreaded diagnosis or merely aging where as help being needed in the home. I have had a 100% rate of approval by all Clients/Family, always have had a good-fit with the Family feeling at ease. I am brutally honest, I would never touch anything that doesn't belong to me. I've never been in any trouble. I have a clean record plus a fairly clean driving record. My compassion runs deep. Again, it is my niche'...my-calling to care for the elderly, less fortunate and/or those with challenges. AT this point I can only take on Sitting and Driving positions.
I have been in the health care industry for the last twelve years. I'm a mother of three teenage boys and have also have had my cna since 2007 and am very happy in my career and enjoy what I do. Touching hearts, lending a helping hand and meeting the needs of others has helped me realize my true purpose in life.

1. I have always enjoyed working with people. Healthcare is a forever growing field with many satisfactions by helping others; live life to greater potentials, restore health in times of need, aid in ADLs for better quality of life, and so many more fulfilling reasons whether by educating, assisting, or actively caring for others. 2. There is always something more to learn! The experience is very rewarding when you see the gratitude coming from those that are unable to do for themselves, even when helping with the smallest of things. 3. A personal achievement that I am proud of is continuing my education within healthcare. Having a family and working while trying to improve myself (through education) and the life of my family is very difficult at times but teaches my children to persevere, strengthens me personally, and teaches my family that work together during tough times only strengthens our bond as a family team! 4. I always seem to do things the difficult way, like going back to school 10 years after graduating and after starting a family (3 kids and spouse), but I am not one to quit or give up easily. I don't care to settle when I can improve. I want my kids to learn from my mistakes and be inspired by my achievements. Family is everything and I enjoy being a part of the lives of those I care for...they are like extended family. I truly believe in God, Karma, and the Love of Family.
I started taking care of the elderly when I was 17 and I am now 45. I have worked in the medical field my whole life. It is all I want to do. I love to take care of other people. Over the last 28 years I have dealt with many types of people and have never met a stranger or a problem that I could not deal with. I am a Certified Medication Aide as well as a Certified Nurse Aide. They say when you love what you do at work that you never really worked at all. That is me.
I believe the qualities that make me a great caregiver are patience, compassion and attentiveness. These qualities are essential in assisting a patient at their bedside in their time of need. As stressful it can be for someone who no longer has the physical ability they once had, there needs to be someone who is understanding and empathetic to their desires to ensure comfort. My interest in becoming a caregiver comes from being the one my grandparents call on for help. I strongly believe in giving back to the community and equal effort for all ages of those in stand in the need of care. My enjoyment stems from seeing interacting and seeing my patients smile. I'm proud of the fact that step by step I'm making an impact on my patients as they always ask to see me again. Once I secure the peace of mind in my patients' families hearts and minds, my job is complete.
Caring, understanding, patient, and hardworking. I have always been fascinated with the medical field. I enjoy being able to help patients either gain their strength back after surgery. Also just being helpful with daily things that most take for granted. Being the first to graduate from high school and receiving an Associates degree. Also a personal achievement that I find amazing was being able to care for my doctors father in law before he passed. Helping the family in anyway I could.
