I'm a great caregiver because I listen well and enjoy hearing people's life stories. For some reason I find it easier to relate to the older generations than I do to my own. Last night I invited my sisters family of 6 over for dinner and my nephew said it was a ten out of ten!

I've worked with the elderly for about eight years.When my father was admitted to a nursing home and I witnessed how he was cared for I developed a passion to try and make a difference working with the elderly to give them better care. I worked three years as an activities assistant with dementia and loved it,I have also worked as an LNA in a memory care unit. I have had special training with alzheimers/dementia care.

Hi! My name is Taylor, thank you for taking your time to read a little bit about me. Being a caregiver has been one of the most rewarding and fun jobs I have ever had, I'm so lucky to have found a field I care so much about. As a people person, I enjoy making others feel happy and doing whatever is necessary to make sure they stay that way! I like to hear stories from the people I meet and I learn a lot that way. In my free time I like to read, play board games, bake and I do makeup as well! I'm always ready to try new things and experience the most I can.
Hello, my name is Laura and I am 31. I have a wonderful husband and we have 2 children. T. is 12 and B. is 8. I have a diverse back ground with elderly care and child care, and am looking for clients. When I was a child my mother had an in home daycare and she also took care of my grandfather who had MS. From an early age I was introduced to both child care and elderly care and realized that I had a passion to help people. I have worked in a nursing home, had a private daycare, and most recently worked privately in a home assisting a 92-year-old who was unable to walk. I have experience with a multitude of things and am willing to learn. I believe in the golden rule; treat everyone, how you want to be treated. I was raised with a strong sense of compassion, responsibility, dependability and honesty. I take pride in providing the best care possible.
I genuinely care about people of all ages and they are able to recognize my level of compassion right away. I have given care to several elderly people within the last few years, and I love to listen to their stories. They have wisdom that can only be gained by living a long life, so it is quite fascinating to me to learn from them by listening to them. Even though a few clients have been quite grumpy with other caregivers, I am often able to bring out their sense of humor by making it all about them--doing things they like and want to do. I have also worked with several disabled adults and children, so my degree in education comes in handy helping them learn new ways to do things. My background in psychology also comes in handy, because it gives me a way to understand the emotional ups and downs of being elderly and/or different abilities. I am also a very patient person when it comes to working with people with special needs. I do not automatically do things for my clients if they can do it for themselves, because often the task will allow them a form of physical therapy. I am very adept at giving praise and encouragement for keeping active and busy. I get as much out of being a caregiver as I do giving, because it helps me to feel good about myself.
