I am a professional, honest, patient, kind and passionate caregiver. I am currently a caregiver for a developmentally delayed individual and looking for a position with more stable hours. I have experience providing care for up to 8 individuals at the same time and individuallly. I'm willing to travel 50 miles from the Tampa area. I have been a caregiver for 6 years. I have grown in this field and continue to learn. I'm knowledgeable in physical, occupational and speech therapies. I am trained in First Aid. AED, Compliance courses, HIV/AIDS/ blood-borne pathogens, Medication Management, CPR for babies, children and adults and HIPPA. I've worked in group homes privately owned, corporate owned and in individuals private homes with families. I specialize in individuals with developmental delays ambulatory and wheelchair bound. If you do not have a hoyer lift I can bring my own equipment and slings to provide safety for everyone involved. #1. I believe being a caregiver has to come from your heart, a trait that your born with wanting to help others feel great about themselves, accomplishing what they are unable to accomplish on their own while assisting or doing for them, having patience, a warm smile or just a simple hello how are you doing /feeling today, respect for them.
#2. From as far back as I can remember growing up as a child I have always enjoyed taking care of others, started off by taking care of family members and neighbors. While growing up I traveled to take care of my ill grandfather, grand mother, and only sister, early this year I volunteered and helped my family out with my last living uncle no matter where i had to go or what it took.
#3. Seeing my clients smile when they see me coming lets me know that we together are doing something correct, with another day of smiles and laughter a waits use both, cooking, cleaning, going for a walk, to the park, sitting outside, or just relaxing doing whats best for them. having them tell me or direct me to exactly what they need done, family letting me know, providing them and their families with that comfort.
#4. After working on a job for 11 1/2 years and still wanting to go back to the 1 passionate job that I've carried in my heart for so long , seems like this is truly all I know is how to take care of other people.
