About Kristy

Patience. Those who provide home care to others need to be patient. Being patient means that the person understands that there may be changes in plans, things may not go as quickly as planned, and there may be a little hesitation at times on the part of the person receiving care. Compassion. When someone has compassion for another they have an understanding of what the person is going through. Attentiveness. It is important when providing home care that the caregiver is attentive to the needs and changes that are taking place. By being attentive, the caregiver, will notice when there are emotional or physical changes in the person he or she is caring for. Dependability. Those who need home care don't usually just need it sporadically. Rather it is on a regular basis, so it is imperative that a caregiver be dependable and show up to provide the care that the person needs and is counting on. Trustworthiness. Caregivers are often in a position that will allow them to have access to the belongings of the person they are caring for. It is crucial that the caregiver be someone who is trustworthy and will not breach that trust by taking advantage of the person her or she is caring for.

Hello, I've always been a hard worker. From graduating high school top of my classes and doing great in college, determination defines me. Being bilingual( French-English), my communication skills are impeccable. I spent years caring for people in need, I babysit and I provide care to elderly. While volunteering at different hospitals for many years, I always knew that caring for people in need is what I wanted to do, I perfected my skills over the years by providing excellent care. Keeping a smile on my face, having a great attitude and focusing on my tasks makes me a great caregiver. Knowing that I'm providing care make me feel better about myself, and brings positivity to what I do.

The level of being patient and I do more of listening than talking so it makes me a great care giver. I took care of my grandma for 3 years so it gave me that passion to feel for others and treat them like my family. I am about to take my CNA board exam and I have made people smile each time am around them.
