About Rachel

1.Great communication skills. Good listener.Understand the family's concerns and communicate with family as much and as often as the wish. My goal is to make the client as comfortable and happy as I possibly can.To help put the family's worries and concerns at ease.Build a trusted and caring foundation with all involved. 2.My very first patient was my grandmother.I moved in and took care of her till the day she passed. My grandmother was loving and showed unconditional love. She taught me how listen with my heart and understand that every person elder, young, handicap or any disability deserve respect and to be cared for and love .I really feel that most of us in this field are rare gems .Because the ones that are still doing this after 30 years have a gift. 3.What I love most about caregiving is the feeling that in the last days of being with us.They laugh they depend on us as caregivers to be there for them .Routine daily makes a big difference in there life's. 4.There is not one specific achievement I can recall there are many different ones. Being there for the family members when they can't for whatever reason. I guess being reliable and dependable for the family at any given moment after 30 years is a achievement.
