Frances A.

$20.00 / hr

I believe that I am a great caregiver because I treat each patient as though they are my mother, child or sibling or any other family member. I give the type of care that I would want to receive for myself or a loved one. No one likes being sick or incapable of taking care of them self for whatever reason. I do my job with pride, love and care for the person under my care, I take it personally. I put GOD first in everything that I do and I want to do what is pleasing to GOD. The people that I take care of are GOD's people and I will be held accountable by GOD for the care I give each person down to th e smallest act of care to the largest. My most proudest moment is when my patients tell me Frances you are my family and I can tell you care about me. You are not my caregiver but you are my family. That goes along way with me because that is fulfilling to my soul know I am doing something to make someone else's life better. I take each assignment personally and I take responsibility for the care I provide on my watch and being told that I am family means a lot to me, it lets me know I am doing my job. ... more
