About Tabitha

I believe my experiences as a Certified nursing assistant and my fieldwork experience as a Certified Occupational therapy assistant makes me the best caregiver that i can become. I have worked with many patients and families before and I have had the best experiences. It is such a rewarding experience and feeling to Help someone over come an obstacle or a goal that they have been working on . For instance, while completing my occupational therapy fieldwork I assisted this one patient with shaving his face and getting dressed every other day due to his fractured shoulder. When he was getting discharged he was very thankful for helping him and teaching him alternative methods to compensate for his affected arm, that was one of the best experience i' have had as a health care provider.

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!
