There has been an unconditional love in my heart for people And animals . I would care for family and Friends when I was young, a care that never stopped. Animals, smoking, incontinence, nothing really bothers me. My mother had severe epilepsy, My father and late husband had cancer, my grandmother had polio and lived 22 yrs in cast iron lung ,had genetic thyroid problems, crippling arthritis could not walk . Also diabetes , learn to cook special foods. Confined to wheelchair, transferring To and from for toilet And showers. customers with Dementia, Parkinson's, Alzheimer's, Autism lead me to training dogs for disabilites above situations. I watch , monitor and ease pain confusion and fear that comes with problems. I can and do handle all the situations that are to much for most. I do it with compassion ,love, respect and leave them with dignity and respect. I am here!
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 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.
1. I am a caregiver because I am able to make a difference in people's lives and allow them to be indeoendent in their own home setting. I also enjoy helping people and see how. my caring for them enables people to be themselves. 2. That I have the opportunity to be of assistance to people and see how my helping them enables people to achieve their or their families goals. 3. One of my achievements was with a person with Dementia/Alhzheimers and she was cimbattive and I showed that I had patience and cared and she ceased being combative and we were able to work together and I assisted with dressing, we took walks, played games, etc. Before that she would only let family members associate with her. 4. Well I scuba dive, am very considerate and patientop. I worked for the state for 28 years and now am looking for caregiving positions so that I can help people who need someone to help them live a independent life. I have a very easy going personality, calm and patient and I am a good listener and companion. I have worked with people with disabilities and the elderly since 2001 and I do enjoy seeing their faces when I arrive knowing they can feel comfortable and safe while I am providing exceptional care to the individual or their family member.
I became a caregiver when my grandmother needed someone to help her with household chores, errands, cooking, bathing, and help assist with going to the bathroom. After she passed away, I wanted to continue helping other people, and began working at an assisted living center for residents with Dementia and Alzheimer's. I love providing care, but also allowing them to still have their sense of independence. I am very passionate about giving people the quality of life, and I do whatever I can to maintain that. A personal achievement I am proud of is taking a leap and moving across the country by myself. I love to explore life, and find beauty in something everyday.
