I've been a caregiver for 8 years. I love helping people do things they are no longer able to do on their own anymore. I love hearing stories from my clients about the good old days, their childhoods, about what made them into who they are now. It makes me feel good knowing that I can help make someone's day easier just by helping them out whether it's by cleaning, helping them dress or just listening to stories.

I am a very caring and giving person and have a very excited and happy demeanor. I enjoy being a home health aide for so many reasons but, most of all I love the individual stories, where they are from, what they have been through and survived, and listening to them talk about their lives. I have loved each of my patients as they were my own parents and i look forward to meeting new people and learning about their lives as well as helping them to achieve their daily goals.
I have been a caregiver for 25 years in various types of areas. I owned a state licensed adult familyhome for adults with disabilities for 15 years. Adults were referred to my home by Health and Human Services. I provided a home and all aspects of daily living, social interactions, doctor appointments, medications, meals, household tasks as well as promoting the independence of each individual. I have also provided care for an elderly woman at first in her house and then in my house when her needs began to increase and she couldn't stay alone anymore. In addition, I have provided in home care to 2 children with disabilities and complex medical needs. I enjoy what I do because I love the satisfaction of helping to improve others lives. I consider myself to be a very caring, empathetic, dedicated, self driven person. I would think that those I've worked with would say the same.
I think I'm a great caregiver because my clients and residents are like family to me, I love to listen to stories and just being able to be there and show them that people care I want to help them as much as I can. I wanted to become a caregiver as I was growing up because I like to help people no matter what the situation is. I love being a companion to others. I'm currently a CNA and have been going on 4 years can provide proof of certification.
