I love helping people. I've been helping people all my life. Its makes me happy to know that my clients know there are people that who really care. I am proud when I make my clients smile and feel comfortable with me. I have been doing this professionally now for two and a half years, even though I've been doing this all my life because people needed help. I am patient and understanding with my clients. Though their attitudes change sometimes, if they cooperate with me even on their bad days it will make both our day go much smoother. We all have those days sometimes. I will give them time to get theirself together then I will try it again. I am only looking for private duty and part time care giving. Some overnights and shortterm care.
I'm very companionate, patient and kind and show empathy when I'm working ... those are the main characteristics I believe anyone must have to work in this field ..... especially compassion. My mother died of cancer and had quite a few aids, that's what inspired me to become an aide and help others that may need help too ! I'm very thankful for the help they provided for my mother and I see how important and great of need that some people may have ... I enjoy being there for others who are in great need . Receiving my CNA LISCENSE and MED TECH LICENSE is one personal achievement that I'm proud of . That allows me continue to help others not only with a sense of compassion but professionally and trained correctly!!!!
I became a caregiver because I love working with senior citizens. I feel a sense of accomplishment when I can assist them in their daily tasks, encourage them to follow doctors directives, and take medication on regularly scheduled times. I also like to make sure they follow their dietary requirements, engage in limited physical activities and if healthy enough go out on outings; I have worked with clients all over Richmond and welcome meeting new challenges. I am the mother of two, recently married and enjoy spending time with family and friends. I aspire to learn more to aid in providing optimal care for the client and to be as compassionate as possible when working with other senior citizen population.
I have been caring for patients for the past 12 years while working at VCU Health System. My personality is quiet and I have a caring heart. I usually take my time providing care to patients. I believe I would be a great caregiver because I'm patient with people. I'm a good communicator.
I have always had a passion for caring for the elderly in what ever way I could. I just wanted to be of any service to them in any way possible. I have been employed at several retirement facilities working to give them the best customer service possible with joy and pride. Now that I have taken on the role as a caregiver which is more one on one and being able to do more with the clients and enjoy what I do even more just to be able to care for them better and being able to be apart of keeping them safe in their homes. I just love what I do.
I feel like there are a lot of great caregivers out in the world but I feel like I stand out more so than others because I would treat my resident as if it was one of my own family members and provide the proper care PRN. I am also CNA certified. I became a care giver because I realized people are busy and they may not have the time to care for a loved one due to a lot of different things going on in their life and I can provide the best patient care. I love being a care giving because I come across different family's and it gives me a opportunity to to meet new people while helping out people as well.
First I will answer why I became a caregiver. I was working in housekeeping and heard that the class was being offered to become a CNA. I had already realized that I enjoyed saying good morning and chatting with patients and thought this would give me an even greater opportunity to spend quality time with them. I signed up for the training and was successful in completing the course and passing my state license. After I began working, I was thrilled to see the difference a CNA made in the lives of the patients. I got to know their families and the fact that they trusted me to care for their family member made my job serious and important. I love chatting with patients. The stories they tell are so interesting. Many patients are older and have very interesting stories. I like being a CNA and caregiver. The care and compassion I being to my workplace makes a difference in the day of my patients.
What makes me a great caregiver is that I'm upbeat with energy to dance, walks, parks/gardens or taken in a local concert with active clients. I enjoy watching sports with my clients live or TV, working on puzzles or just have a quiet time looking thru photos, books. I became a caregiver after caring for grandmother, father-in-law, and friend's family members. I enjoy being a caregiver to assist both client and the family with daily chores, making things easier for client, giving the family peace of mind their love one is in the best hands as I would want for my own family. They can spend time with their own family if needed. My personal achievements is having a beautiful smart daughter who has given me 3 beautiful healthy grandchildren that bring joy to my life every time I'm with them. I'm happy with the times I bring joy a family who's love one needs care. Nervous about the future, but soon able to relax and spend memorable times with them, let the caregivers handle the weight.
I am very easy going. I like to form a bond with my clients. I want them to be comfortable with me being there for them and asking me to help them. I enjoy helping people because it makes me feel like I could help the world one person at a time. I grew up in the healthcare field my mother and grandmother worked in this field. When it comes down to it I feel at peace when helping families out.
I have great communication skills and am loving, kind, caring, compassionate and most of all patient. I can do whatever it takes to make your loved one comfortable which includes lite cooking, cleaning, running errands, medication reminders, bathing /dressing, companionship and feeding if necessary. When a loved one went into rehab after being in the hospital and finding that the level of care he received while in the nursing home was awful I swore I would help those who needed genuinely good care. I was able to witness those who were not treated fairly and could not speak up for themselves in these homes and family members who were caught between a rock and a hard spot not being able to be there or care for their loved one in their home, my heart went out to them. I love helping people and putting a smile on someone's face. My cases have involved dealing with dementia patients, patients with mobility issues, bed ridden, hospice care and just someone who needs a friend to listen and someone who really cares about them. I am proud to say that those families that I have cared for have been very happy with my services That puts a smile on my face and says I've done a job well done.

I would love to be a part of your loved one life. I enjoy talking ,reading,walking and assisting the resident with whatever their needs maybe. I love it when I can make someone smile...
I am compassionate, patient, and honest. I feel I am enthusiastic and responsible and have really enjoyed working as a caregiver in prior years. I feel more than caregiving I provide great companionship. I first became drawn to caregiving when I took care of my Grandmother, who was diagnosed with the late stages of ALS back in 2015. When I was younger, taking care of my mother who was a single mom suffering from cancer made caregiving natural for me. I enjoy the relationship that come along with caregiving, I feel called to it in a way because each of my experiences have in turn been very special. I feel proud of the way I live my life independently and thoughtfully, but I might be most proud to know I helped my Grandmother live her last few months in the best possibly way. I hope to continue this calling of mine and have a similar impact on others.
