I'm 33 years old. I have 2 kids. I became a caregiver back when I was 17 years old. My great grandmother had alzheimers/dimentia. Ever since then I've had a passion for helping the elderly. I cared for my most recent client for the past year. She had to be transferred to a memory care for more supervison
My grandmother was diagnosed with Alzheimer's. I cared for her at home for 16 months, until her death. It was an eye opening experience for me. I felt as though I had been blessed to have the opportunity to spend this end of life experience with her. I cared for her completely. Then my grandfather needed care. I moved him in with me and cared for him as well. After they passed, I started getting calls from friends, to care for their parents. And I did. Entering the field through these steps, I learned the value of trust and companionship. I know a good relationship with a health care provider is most beneficial for the Senior and I have seen the joy that comes with these actions. I am proud to say, I can provide excellent references for jobs well done. I am professional in appearance and very dependable and I always have a smile.
I enjoy working with the elderly and feel like i can make their lives a little better i enjoy cooking and planting and just having conversation with the elderly i feel they need companionship of some kind and its just what i love to do i took care of my grandmother and really enjoyed being able to help her . I have worked with stoke patients dementia patients and just clients who needed someone there to assist with daily living
I enjoy taking care of the elderly and learn a lot of knowledge from them as well. 2. Meeting new pts and building a better knowledge of what to expect when I become a nurse. 3. Graduated from high school and continuing my education in nursing. 4. Dependable, trustworthy, and I go above and beyond for people
Possessing a nurturing nature, caregiving comes naturally to me. I am a compassionate individual who enjoys providing exceptional care to people of different ages. It gives me great satisfaction to help someone, and the job enables me to bring a positive change in the lives of my clients.
I am very patient and laid back. I am friendly. Working in a pharmacy setting for a lot of years my heart is always for the elderly and disabled. They are my favorite patients to be able to help. I helped take care of my Grandfather who had Parkinson's and I miss him every single day.
I've been a c.n.a for 11 years and I love it! I love taking care of people! I feel like I'm their family member taking care of them when their families aren't able to. I treat my residents like I would want my mother, grandma, papa treated. I'm very dependable, trustworthy, loving and caring. I've been certified 11 years so I know all the state laws and regulations for a c.n.a. I also always follow them. That's how I can be so proud and know that I'm a good aide because of all my knowledge from working in nursing homes and in home health care. I mostly enjoy taking care of people because it gives me a purpose. I believe its what I was called to do. I always get attached to my residents and they always get attached to me as well. I dont just take care of people for a paycheck, I do it because thats what I love to do! My mom is a R.N. and growing up I always went to work with her so I was always around the elderly and nursing homes and I loved it then and still do to this day.
My first experience as a caregiver was working in a group home for individuals who have developmental disabilities. I worked in two different group home settings. One home was all male and the other was primarily female. I gained experience working with clients in wheelchairs; who had dementia, seizures, ostomy bags, 02 machines, CPAP machines; who needed ADL assistance, feeding assistance, bed pan usage, etc. I enjoyed my work because it didn't feel like I was working. In between doing the tasks that were needed of me, I enjoyed my client's company and engaged them in activities to help enrich their lives. When I moved to St. Louis I worked as a Home Health Aid and worked with clients who had Parkinson's Disease, Alzheimer's, in hospice, multiple sclerosis, etc. I worked in client's homes and sometimes alongside other caregivers to help provide the best care possible. I am currently Adult CPR and First Aid certified, I was a certified Med tech in both NJ and MO state so I have some knowledge of medications. I hold a BA in Psychology and am trained in behavioral management techniques. I just like giving back. I used to work retail, but never enjoyed my jobs because I never felt like they were jobs that really made a difference. I got my degree in Psychology in hopes to work with people who need someone to be there for them. I enjoy knowing that I can put a smile on someone's face.
I became a caregiver because my sister was diagnosed with cancer in August 2009. After a successful military career as a Master Aircraft Maintenance Scheduler and a Maximum Security Corrections Officer in Wyoming, my entire world shifted...I became aware of her need for full-time care and assisted her with activities of daily living. I found the work challenging, gratifying, and interesting. When I relocated to Texas, I began working for a home health agency in Tyler, TX where I provided care for clients for over 4 years. I have pride in always meeting the clients needs and developing a healthy, professional relationship with them that enables me to provide needed care while preserving their dignity and independence. My fondest memory during my caregiver experiences was working with a young man with end-stage AIDS. His emotional need to maintain some elements of control while surrendering so much physical control due to the trajectory of his illness was a unique challenge. Because music was so important to him and represented an emotional outlet, I was able to use this mutual link to keep him engaged and motivated until his death. Where friends and family were unable to reach him on a personal level, I helped them and him to reconnect through this basic experience. I enjoy being a Caregiver because it allows me to see the best in people at the worst times in their lives...it just takes patience, professionalism, and understanding.
