I have been a Certified Nursing Assistant for over 30 years. Part of that time I was a Medical Assistant. I became a caregiver originally to help family members, and found that I enjoyed it so much that I made it my career. I am most proud of the fact that I make lives better and increase the social life of my clients.
I became a caregiver after a family friend asked me to become a caretaker for her brother in 2015. That was a major blessing that has taken me on a different path in life. I worked with him for two years until he was moved to an adult family home, then I worked at an assisted living facility, and am now working as a home care aide with an agency. I enjoy working with people and being of help to others. I have worked with clients from all age groups but I particularly enjoy working with the older population because of their life experiences and wealth of wisdom. I recently completed my pre-requisites for the nursing program at Bellevue College. My goal is to become a nurse so that I can help people to a greater degree.

I have been a caregiver I believe for most of my live. It all began when I got my daughter 36years ago. Later on and in between I have taken care of family members as need be. I took care of my mum until she died 6 yares ago. I have also worked as a care giver with pay for over 15 years. I have always enjoyed performing my duties and perform my work deligently with the clients need in mind. I have worked for the elderly, young people and people with mental disability. I have worked at their homes and also in Institutions While these jobs can be chellenging the joy of watching your clients as you as assist them, or just being a companion is very gratfying. I have been voted the emploree of the month twice in 2 different agencies. I will always continue to be what the clients want/need.
A caregiver of seven years trained to handle a variety of health and behavioral situations, I am aware of the impulse of families to want to ensure the health and well-being of loved ones. The help may just call for daily living activities with extra touches that make life worthwhile: decent exercise, tasty healthy meals, a clean, pleasant environment, a good listener and conversationalist, and kind, competent care. Some situations, however, require attending to seemingly insignificant, but crucial tasks, such as reminders to drink enough liquids, to move body and limbs periodically to avoid pressure points and muscle atrophy. I believe my care is dispensed with respect, kindness, and purpose, mindful their need for such greater than ever. A general "How are you?" might be followed with a specific "Do you feel dizzy",; and too long a spell on the couch will suggest an exercise or outside to smell the roses. The idea, above all, is to provide for the well-being of body and soul. A wise tip I learned is to give old people something to look forward to, whether a fun treat or an item in their bucket list. It may not always be possible, but sometimes, even just trying helps. My career history is eclectic, but caregiving suits me because I believe I make a difference in the lives of those in my care; more often than not, the tables are turned to make me pay attention. I consider my charges' health and well-being challenges, such as easing a cynic's attitude with kindness or making one's last days a comfort. By researching and learning about their ailments before I take over, I make certain I "do no harm". I have gained hands on and annual online training from Home Health Aide courses and nurse delegated work. An energetic, resourceful worker, I offer empathy, kindness, and a bright outlook. They are what I gave my mom, now lovingly sent off to join dad, with plenty to spare for others.
Hi I'm Ateka, I've been a caregiver for 7yrs. Working as a caregiver is very fulfilling as I enjoy seeing my clients happy and healthy. I believe that you should always take care of those who can't help themselves. In my country of Ethiopia I took care of senior citizens. We believe that the elderly should never suffer nor go into Nursing Homes to be alone. My hope is one day all people who need assistance will be able to get the quality care they need and deserve.
