About Norma

I'm a good listener, compassionate, caring person, that takes pride in the work I do, which is caring for residents, clients, and patients. I love my work, my field in helping others who cannot help themselves. I enjoy talking, laughing and helping them. One day when I worked at Metropolitan Hospital, I walked in a patient room and I saw my patient sad. I sat down to talk to her and ask her why she is sad, she told me that she wish she can put on make up, I said yes you can put make up on, she said she did not have none here, so I told her I will be right back, I went to my locker and took my bag of make up out I went back to my patient room and I told her I will help her to put on make up. After that I finish and I told her now look at yourself in the mirror, she did and I was so happy that I put a sad face to a very HAPPY FACE. This is what I love to see.

    I am careful, safe, organized and coordinated in transporting clients for their needs whether it is for picking up medications, getting them to and from their appointments, filling out forms, helping with their shopping, all personal care service for their daily living for and anytime they want some simple conversation and just not be alone. To give and share with clients, one must be compassionate and patient and have an understanding that those needing care would like for the caregiver to understand their needs. There happens to be an advantage to being a caregiver that can put themselves in the shoes and situation of those with the need. My joy is realized when the needs are filled and the cared for people are grateful and thankful. I want to give the care and experience the joy often. I have experienced this joy with my parents as I cared for them. Currently I am a part-time caregiver for various clients providing them all the assistance they may need. Professional and courteous, always on time. Administering medication and food through a gastric tube. Bathing and attending to other personal hygiene and grooming needs. Food preparation and feeding client, according to strict dietary requirements and procedures Cleaning and light housekeeping (client's laundry, dishwashing, cleaning spaces used by client and caregivers, cleaning therapy equipment) Assisting with therapies (cognitive, speech, occupational) and range-of-motion exercises, including manual transfers to and from bed to assist client with weight-bearing and balance exercises. General companionship and interaction with client (i.e. reading books, cognitive therapies). Driving client to and from appointments and activities in a client-provided wheelchair accessible van.
