About Holly

I feel that what makes me a great caregiver is my passion for being able to assist those who are not able to do so for themselves. I enjoy that I am able to help people maintain some part of their quality of life as long as I can do so. I became a caregiver because I have always enjoyed helping people with the things that they need done. I hated seeing how people were treated in some nursing homes. I love the one on one contact that you get to experience with being a caregiver. I love being a caregiver because it provides me with the ability to be able to sit and talk with my clients. Learning about their lives, the places they have been, listening to them talk about their families, and the different ways things were when they were growing up. I think that my greatest personal achievement that I am proud of is the fact that I was able to graduate High School. It was a huge struggle for me to finish it due to me dropping out a few times but I was able to cross that milestone in my life. I am now pursing college and I am almost finished with that so this will be another great achievement in my life.

    I am a very loving, compassionate,joyful and patient caregiver. I am very detail oriented and a do my work with a spirit of excellence! I am very dependable and knowledgeable as I have been a caregiver for 20 yrs. My first job as a caregiver was in 1996. While I was donig Missionary work in Victoria, Tx., a 23 yr. old homeless man came to us for help. He had many health issues and after taking him to the Dr. in San Antonio, they found out that he had Cancerous tumor in his Brain. He was given 6 months to live and I brought him to San Antonio, Tx. and became his caregiver in our home. He lived 3 yrs. and I had the priviledge of learning how to be a Hospice Caregiver without the pay from man...but God rewarded me with the awesome experience and prepared me for a new career in Caregiving!

    I think I'd make a great caregiver I love building relationships with other I communicate very well with others. I have an easy going personality I get along very well with anyone. I'd like to become a caregiver more because it's personal to me that elders are taken care of if I could go back I would of spent all day and night with my grandpa but I was to young to understand what I needed to do for him. I like knowing that I could put a smile on anyone's face if I was a caregiver I could lighten up the mood in any given situation.
