More Caregivers You Might Like
I became a caregiver because of a family member who became very ill. I became his caretaker and enjoyed taking care of him even though it was a difficult time for me. He was very comfortable with the care that was provided and it was something I knew I wanted to do from that time on. What I like most about being a Caregiver is I like to see that a patient/client is being well cared for and that I am making that happen for them. I like to see the satisfaction on their faces knowing I have done a job well done. A personal achievement I am proud of is that every patient/client that I have worked with, providing care for, was very pleased with my work and they have expressed it with words of appreciation themselves and with my supervisors. I am a person who takes my job seriously and I like to be proficient in my work. I have been in the Healthcare field for 15 plus years and am very skilled in it. I like to get the job done right the first time. I can also be humorous with the patient/client when it is appropriate to make their day a little brighter. I really enjoy working with them.
I enjoy taking care of people. I helped to take care of my grandmother and parents as they got older, have a lot of experience taking care of children, and helping older adults seemed natural. I have done cooking, cleaning, taking care of pets, helping with personal care, taking walks with them, helping with light transfers, and being a companion. Talking with older adults about their interests and lives is interesting, and I enjoy discussing books, recipes, music, and travel/places. When I am working as a caregiver, I try to pay attention to the details, including what the client likes and how they like it done, so that I can do the same thing in the future. I am registered on the California Home Care Aide Registry. Reference letters and a certificate from an agency can be shown to you (at an interview). I like to see when the adults feel that their needs are met, that they are important and special, and that someone cares. It gives me a lot of satisfaction to see that I am helping people. Some personal achievements that I am proud of include getting a master's degree in teaching, being an elementary school teacher for years, giving presentations to supervisors and other employees, and having success in switching careers. I went to college in Oklahoma, and returned to California to teach for years. I tutor children, take care of children, and also am a caregiver for adults. I enjoy reading, baking, listening to music, taking care of pets, spending time with friends and family, and traveling. I am looking for a care giving job where the older adult needs help because he/she is alone, and where the family will sign a confidentiality agreement. I do not do lifting (or transferring where the older adult's full weight needs to be supported). Letters of reference can be shown to you (at an interview). I am also looking for a nonsmoking household. If hired through the CareLinx website, payments will need to be made through the website.
