Hi, thanks for taking the time to learn a little about me. Giving care to someone is more like being their greatest advocate, they let me know what they want, need, and can do in their lives and I do my best to achieve this with them. I am very adaptable to follow protocol, or be spontaneous within the allowed guidelines. Safety, respect, listening, assisting are all just basic musts and needs. I am pretty strong, love exploring or relaxing at home. I enjoy making those in my circle feel cared for and unconditionally accepted, it gives me a peace. While medical assisting for six years, I notic ed a decline in the kind of care for the vulnerable and assisted patients - It weighed so heavy on me that I decided to change careers. I found a new passion for learning about all the diagnosis' I saw in the clinic and how people adapted to living with them daily. I took every hard case on... loving the challenges. I took as many syndromes and specialty needs as I could and that helped me learn how to approach each person as an individual no matter what their challenges were. All that said, I have many moments that I can say are my favorites, but it comes down to being blessed by those I work for. I stated earlier I am adaptable, and that means I bring a nice and varied background, but I am more interested in learning about the next person who selects me and how to weave my experiences to make their life better, maybe even fuller.. any way I can. Thank you! Vicky ... more

In Home Support Worker

Brighton Enterprises

Jan 2012 - Jul 2014

Worked with adult clients in their homes to help maintain independence despite their diagnosis or physical limitations. I preferred to stay on call to be able to interact and care for such a variety of adults from 18 to I believe the oldest was in his early 90's. This covered almost the full gamut of abilities intellectually emotionally and physically and a variety of specialized syndromes and extreme behaviors as well. It was a difficult decision to leave for the more intimate care I provide now, but it was a great choice after all. ... more
