Hello, I'm Laura. I'm very outgoing and relate well to just about anyone. I have excellent communication skills. I take my job seriously, am reliable, on time and go above and beyond the call of duty. I was asked to care for a friend's aging mom years ago and discovered I REALLY enjoyed it. I'm just naturally a caregiver, so taking on this role comes very easily for me. I also have three teenagers (17 year old twins and a 19 year old in college). I still "take care" of them, although they are pretty independent at this stage of their lives. I have experience with a wide variety of clientele. I have a lot of experience with dementia, however. I enjoy learning and take direction well, so I'm not afraid to walk into a novel situation. I'm blessed with a lot of patience. I've had someone ask me why I'm a caregiver because I have a Masters in Social Work. The truth is because I really enjoy it. I like to be hands on and in the trenches, as they say.
I have worked in nursing homes, assisting living facilities and pharmacies helping with Dementia and Alzheimer's patients. I have experience with medication management. I have been in the heath field for 20 years. I am a very compassionate and patient 47 year old woman. I enjoy being a companion of a patient. I can help with housekeeping, groceries and walks. I am passionate about healthy cooking. As a personal trainer, I enjoy working with the elderly to maintain or improve their quality of life.
I've always wanted to be in the health care field since I was a child. Being a caregiver for 21years has been a very rewarding line of work. I enjoy helping people and am very compassionate to those who can no longer care for themselves. A gentleman I worked with would never sleep in his room for some reason so a couple of us transformed his room. We painted it into a planetarium and he has slept in his room ever since.-- felt great to make him happy and comfortable, it was a great achievement for me because no one else could get him to rest in his room. The joy of making others happy lets me know im doing my job to the best of my ability. I do have a provider number with the state as a PSW and I'm First Aid CPR Certified.
I am a naturally caring person, who was raised by my grandparents, so I love and understand the elderly. I love hearing the stories of the past. I love getting to know the families and people involved in their lives. People are important and every person has value and a story to tell! I helped to take care of my grandmother as she was aging and I look back on that time w fond memories. Helping others stay in their home. Making someones life just a little bit easier can have great rewards. I took religion is college, of which I have 3 yrs. I have raised two children, and have been involved in my church over the years. I am now helping to raise two of my grandchildren which I adore! I am faithful and loyal, kind and gentle to others. I am honest and trustworthy.I love gardening, my grandchildren, and nature and all animals, especially cats and horses. In my younger years I was a CNA for about 10 years. Then helped my husband in the restaurant business for quite a few years, then went into janitorial at Hood River High Sch for awhile. I now have an additional 7 yrs (?) in caring for others. I love people! Now that I am a little older, I am enjoying taking care of the elderly and have a good understanding for what they need. I have been doing so for a number (10?) of years. I am a pretty easy going person to wk with.

I'm a very happy, energetic person!!! Always try to make the best better. Caregiving is something I love, because growing up I took care of my grandmother and It made me happy being able to be there for her. I've done caregiving for a little over 3 years now. I enjoy being a caregiver because It's an amazing feeling helping and knowing someone relies on you! Getting to know and create a bond and/or friendship with your clients is the best! In my free time I practice with my horses as I'm on a professional rodeo team, hangout with my friends/ family, and play with my puppy!
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 noticed 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

I feel passionate about making sure everyone gets the best care possible; it is important to me to always provide that to my fullest potential. I am applying to nursing school this fall as I look forward to becoming an RN and continuing my gift of giving physical and emotional support to others. Something that I feel is a strength of mine is my ability to provide uplifting, emotional support. I can provide a letter of recommendation from an individual whom I worked with (in home care) for nine months.
I have over 28 years of caregiving experience and a heart for others. Especially those that reach a place in life, where care becomes needed. Part of my overall caregiving experience includes: Handicapped care, dementia care & memory challenged clients. Medication assistance & reminders and helping with all sorts of mobility needs. I am also individually focused on monitoring clients needs, and/or changes, along with companionship. I can provide personal transportation and assistance to activities and appointments, including doctor appointments, as well as pre & post-op surgery care. I offer experienced caregiving in all aspects of life and I truly enjoy working alongside families and my clients for all the different reasons care becomes needed. I love to laugh and also help my clients laugh, smile and enjoy their lives, no matter what phase of life they may be in. Making others comfortable and at ease with every person and their families are of utmost importance to me, as each are very unique and special. I am organized, detail oriented, a multi-tasker, prompt, trustworthy, creative, dependable and also a non smoker. My goals will always be, seeing those I care for and their families quality of life improved, stress relieved and working with individuals and their family's to make that happen. Thank you for considering me, Blessings, Lysa
I believe Caregiving is a gift not just a job,I love working with the client as well as with the family so the person can get the best care possible and being in communication with the Doctor(s),I also want to know the person well enough to know if something is different and/or has changed in health and mind state.I love working with a person long term and using my gift of humor and compassion to help improve one's quality of life. I have been in health care for over 10 years and I still believe that EVERY PERSON is different no matter the health challenges,I have a Provider Number issued by the State of Oregon
I am a caregiver because I want to help others that aren't able to take care of themselves anymore. I want to make an impact in others's lives and be of assistance. I know that I would appreciate it if I was in the same position and I would care if it was my family member. It's important to have trust in others that care of you and your loved one.
