    caregiver

    Jan 2013 - Jan 2013
    Private family
    Assisted a family with caring for their 81 year-old mother in her home. Responsibilities included developing a good rapport with a strong willed, independent-minded elder, anticipating her needs, providing company and conversation around her interests, keeping the house clean, preparing meals, assisting her with mobility, transporting her safely to the grocery store and other locations, doing some personal care like hair washing and styling, foot soaks, massage, and nail trimming, providing her physical activity such as chair yoga and strength exercises, and communicating with her family after each caregiving experience. I loved my work with her and was sorry when she transitioned into outside senior living. References available upon request.

    nursing assistant

    Dec 1982 - Dec 1982
    St. Anne's Home for the Elderly
    While this was from long ago, and frankly I do not recall the exact dates, in the early 80's I worked for a year in the skilled care men's wing of this nursing home as a nursing assistant. I was trained in house, and worked full time for about a year, as I was going to college. i cared for men, some of whom were able to complete activities of daily living with supervision only, and many who required assistance with mobility, transfering, bathing, eating etc.

    When I was a little girl, in kindergarten, we were asked to write down what we wanted to be when we grew up, my mother just gave me all of those old keepsakes. My little piece of paper said " when I grow up I want to be a social worker, a nurse, or a missionary. I have had the passion for caring for people since I was a little girl. I have spent my adult life doing this. I enjoy being a caregiver because I have been on the other end, the majority of my childhood. I was in the hospital a lot as a child with bad asthma, and my caregivers, always comforted me when my mother was unable to stay the night. I always said that I would pay back all of those caregivers who made me feel special by becoming one of them, and being there for someone who was alone or frightened. My greatest satisfaction is to make someone smile, it fills my heart with joy. My greatest achievement was being a part of the lives of so many different beautiful people, and hearing all of their stories. I was the granddaughter of an elderly man with dementia, I was the sister of a woman with Alzheimer's, I was the girlfriend of a boy who was struck by lightening, and I enjoyed every moment I shared in their moments.
