Care giving is a perfect fit for me. I am patient, kind, compassionate, honest, creative, outgoing, professional, self-motivated, organized, punctual, and respectful.
I very much enjoy interacting with seniors. As a young adult I cared for an elderly woman part time while she was bedridden. I kept her company, prepared her evening meal, cleaned her home, and assisted with any needs that arose. Her family said that I was a godsend. I also had the opportunity to assist with my grandfather's care when he was nearing the end of his life, a privilege that I will always treasure. Recently I was employed as a housekeeper, which afforded me the opportunity to clean for some who were seniors. They were my favorite to work for -- a joy to spend time with.
In my family experience I have seen firsthand how valuable it is to be able to remain in your home as you age, with the quality of life and peace of mind that it provides. Assisting seniors is a joy and a privilege.
