About Ami

Greetings! My name is Ami and I am a single mother to a 4 year old boy named Henry! I feel that I am a great caregiver by having an enormously big heart full of compassion and empathy. I care so deeply for people and their health needs. Compassion and Empathy are two qualities that they don't teach caregivers in school because they simply aren't able to. A person has to have acquired those qualities on their own. I am currently attending Green River College to complete my prerequisites for the Diagnostic Ultrasound Program! Obtaining my CNA certification is a prerequisite for the program but my reason for becoming a caregiver goes beyond that. My grandfather was in a memory care unit due to his Alzheimer's disease. I was able to witness the care that he was given by caregivers and realized that I wanted to provide residents/patients/clients with the same level of care so that I could make a difference in that persons life wether they still had a quality of life left or not. It's never easy losing a family member. And it's not any easier losing a resident that you have cared for as a caregiver. But being able to provide high quality care gives me a sense of positive achievement. What I love most about being a caregiver is getting to know the people that I care for. I treat them each like family and feel like they are my family away from home. A personal achievement that I am proud of is getting a 4.0 GPA in all three CNA courses for my Certificate through Green River College. I was the only student in my class to have received 100% testing score on my Skills Exam. I am looking forward to meeting your family and family member in need of my high quality care! Thanks for your consideration!

The world exists upon the kindness showed by others, and that this kindness keeps alive the souls of those needing care. What I like about being a caregiver is that, for clients who cannot do many of the things they used to do, like running around and getting things done to take care of their families--life now begins anew based purely upon things that matter now today-- the worth, the thoughts, and the amount of attention that is paid toward them. This is a time of really focusing only on the present moment, and it takes a certain degree of concentration even to do that, sometimes. They are now the person who need this the most. My greatest personal achievements are when clients, who experience a decrease in function, and sometimes can hardly move or talk, are the most appreciative for my attentiveness to understand them. The story of the Good Samaritan identifies a good neighbor as one who shows kindness, and the rewards write upon the heart and soul. Caregivers are to the aging population a group who recognize that aches and pains are not going to go away. What some call a disadvantage, or disability serve, in many ways, to be an advantage because we shift our focus and attention toward what is really important in life-- people and how they are treated. I am only one of many like-minded caregivers who believe that a moment of clarity with loved ones--paying attention to the good in the moment--is the same as finding diamonds in your own backyard. Thanks for hiring through the Carelinx network!
