About Tamara

What makes me a great caregiver is my passion to assist and help those that who can't or need assistance with helping themselves, especially the elderly and disabled. My first job as a caregiver was over 20yrs ago when I made the decision to leave school in the middle of training for a medical assistant and take care of my grandmother cause I didn't want to see her go into a nursing facility and little did I know, 6months later, my aunt which was my mother's sister would follow! At that moment I knew this was something I not only enjoyed doing but had a passion for. If I could be there to help & assist as many as I can in their own home so that they want have to go into a nursing or assisted living facility then I feel my purpose here on earth has been achieved. As we know their are some without family members or family members who just can't take care of themselves because of various reasons that don't have a choice but to place their love ones in a facility, so I especially want to be there to help them and give them companionship cause those are the ones who tend to lose hope fast because they don't see their love ones as often and give up on life a lot faster. Not only my clients, co-workers but my family say I always go above and beyond for my clients but that's because I don't look at them as my client, I look at them as my grandmother, grandfather, mom, dad, brother or sister.

I've worked as a nurse assistant over 16 yrs caring for disabled, elderly, ill, and mentally challenged clients. I have worked in nursing home, hospital, home care, senior facility, respite care, private duty, direct care service, and hospice care, and trained in massage. I like to challenge myself as a caregiver with promoting new work skills. My time is giving care to others, that cannot do for themselves. My achievement is to see my three children succeed in the life that values them. For myself, to be recognized for my work performance, that's giving to each individual that has been cared for, show appreciation. I had several resident tell me that I'm wonderful, and I had a tearful moment. It's a blessing to hear positive thinking from a client. I'm a certified assistant living manager, private caregiver, and studied massage technique . Thank You.
