I was born to be a caregiver! Over the years I have always been very atune to medical needs as well as the ability to calm a screaming baby that even the mother is unable to calm. I helped care for my grandparents and my mother who passed away this year. I also cared for my daughter whom is a walking miracle! At the age of 11 she dislocated her thumb for the first time...a year and 8 hand surgeries...including both thumbs eventually fused...she was diagnosed 2 days before Thanksgiving of 2009 with leukemia. She is now 7 years chemo free but still has a few residual effects from 3 years of chemo. Some say that I have "divine healing hands" and I love healing people IF they will let me! I have always loved medice and would love to be a doula one day. I enjoy visiting with people. Some say that I can talk too much but I really dont mean to. I am next to the oldest of 6 kids and have 3 of my own. I also have 2 grandkids and one that will arrive in December. I would love the opportunity to be there to help a family with their loved one and give them a little peace of mind and take a little stress out of your life. I personally know how stressful being the "family caregiver" can be.

I'm a Christian lady who believe in helping the elderly who are disabled to care for themselves. After during this in my early younger adult years for my friend's mother, helping out with different people as prn, this really felt natural for me. My grandma just pasted with Alzheimer's diseased and as a experienced caregiver I was glad to step in to take care of her. It's always a joy to work with the elderly people and be a blessing for their family.

I am a 26 year old woman who is committed to helping others, especially the elderly and children. I have prior experience with working as a provider/caregiver.. I believe firmly in being respectful and considerate of others' needs and feelings and wishes. I feel that you should always be gentle and understand that being a caregiver means not only that you help care for the individual but care ABOUT them as well. I think of it as more of a companion than hired help. I currently fo not have any medical certifications or licenses or degrees but do plan on beginning college in yhr fall.

I'm a very upfront outgoing person. I've been a Certified Nurse Assistant since I was 18 yrs old. I was helping my Mom out with my Dad during his battle with lung cancer. I enjoyed giving my Dad one on one care. I cared for him while my Mother was at work. Allowing him to be comfortable in his own home. After he passed I went on to take the CNA, CMA, Phlebotomy class at Kilgore College. I enjoyed mostly the one on one time spent with my patients. Getting to know them. I've worked in Long term care facilities. Prisons, Home healths, Assisted living homes. I mostly enjoy going into the homes as a Companion. Just giving somebody the option of staying home. Helping them with all daily living routines. Allowing them to still stay active. Giving them respect, dignity. Also giving them all my attention.
I'm a very compassionate person who believes our patients should be treated like we would want our family members taken care of. I came into this field because I love to help people. My future plans I plan on becoming a Registered nurse. I believe I can offer the care someone needs. I don't mind being the ear just to listen when someone needs to talk.
