In 1981, when I was a five-year-old child, my mother became gravely sick with an illness her doctors could not diagnose. She often spent four to five months at a time in the hospital, recover enough to come home, but would fall ill again and again with no explanations. This went on for approximately seven years. During the time my mom was home my two sisters, brother, and I did everything we could to make her comfortable that we were capable of doing as children. Yet, seeing my mom in pain and so much discomfort instilled within me a tremendous sense of empathy and compassion. Despite the short periods of time she spent at home between hospitalizations, I developed a deep sense of appreciation for my mother because I missed her terribly. Thankfully, she finally came home and the relief was immense. My grandmother lived with us for 15 years due to her deteriorating health as a result of diabetes, cataracts, loss of hearing, and the loss of the ability to clothe and prepare her own food. I helped to dress her in the morning, attend to her left foot which she almost lost to gangrene. But we managed to heal it and she only lost her left big toe. She was still able to walk albeit with a walking chair. I loved to bake so I would make special desserts for her which she was allowed small portions. It was a great activity for us to bond together. She could watch me make it and give me tips. In college, I became a Caregiver for a quadriplegic man. Although, I didn't have experience caring for a paralyzed man, Michael told me he would explain what he needed on the job. My morning shift started at 7AM and I bathed his nude body, medicated his bedsores, emptied his catheter, performed physical therapy, and fed him his breakfast. If he had chores to complete during my shift, I'd dress him then move him from his bed to his wheelchair and into in his van. Once we finished his chores, I would put him back in his bed, remove his clothing, and clean his apartment.
I have been working with people with all very different needs but they all have one thing in common and that is the need for direct care and support training in diffrent areas. i treat all my clients with love honesty and respect just as i do with my immediate family beause we are all one.
I became a care giver when I realized the effect it had on my M0M when she was ill. We did not as family have enough time to take the right care of her, so she could stay in her home and live the rest of her life were she was happy, safe and comfortable. Having a wonderful care giver made her quality of life much better. It also made us as a family less worried and we appreciated all the caring ways our care giver gave my M0M. I love being able as a care giver myself to make a difference in daily life for our wonderful seniors we have. They can be happy in their own homes,knowing someone cares.There is always someone to make them smile,hug them,and reassure them you will be back the next day. Personal achievement I am proud of is to work hard every day making sure my client is safe,happy and smiles when I walk through the door each day. I am a passionate care giver with a big heart,I enjoy doing little things for people as well as the big ones. I have a wonderful sense of humor and I leave my personal problems at home. I enjoy reading,swimming,conversation and listening to stories all our seniors have to tell.
Hi, my name is Martha. I became a care giver because I am a caring, compassionate, and trustworthy individual with about 8 years of experience taking care of people in health care facilities or seniors in the comfort of their homes. I do enjoy caring for seniors because I do derive some satisfaction when I help elderly people feel loved, cared for and valued. I strongly believe that their lives should not be put on hold or or made feel undignified as a result of their age or any health challenge they may be experiencing. In doing my job effectively and wholeheartedly, I promote and encourage self worth, maintaining dignity, such that every client I work with, feels loved, cared for and appreciated as a valuable member of the community.

Rendering help to the elderly is something I have passion for. I turn to learn much from their wise words. I love my job that is why I do this. Helping the elderly with their day to day activities gives me joy. I have been in this field for about 5 years and have provided care to over 50 elders both male and female. I provide care such as meal preparation, bath, grooming, toileting, light house keeping, laundry, companionship, and run errands such as groceries shopping and doctors appointments. I treat every elder as though they are my real parents or grand parents.
