Besides my experiences, I know that I am always a caregiver because I love helping people not only for my love ones but also to someone who is needing my help which I did as long as I could and I always do things from my heart. I mostly love being around with the elderly people because they inspires me in a lot of ways. And I choose to be a Caregiver for the elderly ones because of my parents..My Mother has Dementia and my Father is blind and bedridden for 3 years .We are poor and my role is the breadwinner of the family back home in the Philippines... I worked for an airline company based in Germany and I took the responsibility of taking care for their medications,doctors,food etc, And the only time that I will be able to physically take care of them is when I got my vacation which is not enough ..but I can't stay longer away from my job since nobody would take care for the rest of their needs. My father passed away in July 2010..I went home for his burial and stayed for another 5 weeks so I can take care of my Mother. 2 months later she also passed away. I lost my parents in the same year and that was one of the most difficult time I had...I knew that they will be gone one day because of their condition . But when it happened I felt the pain and emptiness of having no parents ...that one day I will come home without them. This is why I switched my career from airline job to nursing elderly people because doing this will give me the opportunity to continue caring for my beloved parents...They are my inspiration. And its a great pleasure for me to be given the chance to share my honest compassionate care to your love ones.

I am a young 64 years old. Born in New York, raised in Southern California. I was married almost 16 years to the love of my life. I lost him in February of 2012 to cancer. I took care of him through those years until he passed. I understand how overwhelming it can be I have been assisting seniors since 1996. I have experience with Diabetes, Arthritis, Alzheimer's and cancer. Many of my clients have passed. I like to think I made their last years or months happier for them. I am honest and reliable. I am legally licensed to drive. I have passed a fingerprint background check through DOJ & FBI. I am Certified through LA County IHSS program. Worked withVisiting Angels and Home Instead. The past few years I have been working privately with clients. I have found that I connect with seniors in a unique way. I just be myself, I adapt to their schedules and their ways instead of trying to change things. I love to hear their stories, look at their photos, listen to their music also. I am easy going, always keep an upbeat attitude with my clients. I can take blood pressure, use stethascope, check pulse. Also I have experience with g tubes and j tubes. I have administered insulin to diabetic clients and managed medications for many. Always keep the family advised of any changes in behavior or anything I feel they should know. I don't leave work until I am sure my client is comfortable and has all they need. Long term positions are great, but I also work short term jobs. I have worked with dementia and Alzheimer's disease a lot. I am patient with people. I understand it is difficult to accept help. I try to ensure clients that it is alright, we all need help now and again.I have dependable vehicles both licensed and insured. I enjoy gardening, the beach and having fun with my animals. They keep me busy. I get along with all types of animals. I can tell you that if you hire me, you will not be disappointed.
