Part To Full-Time Caregiver Available

I began volunteering to care for in-home terminally ill through a local hospice and realized the great passion I had for the elderly. That lead me to pursue training to become a Certified Nurse Aide and Patient Care Technician. I have been working part-time at a senior care and rehab center for a year, especially the Memory Unit which houses the residents suffering from dementia, Alzheimer's and/or mental illness. I absolutely love caring for those who suffer in this way and desire to continue in this specific area as I further my career. My own father suffered with Alzheimer's Disease in his final years of life and it was through my personal experience that I learned so much about myself as well as the dynamics of Alzheimer' Disease and how it impacts the entire family unit. I love my job caring for the elderly who suffer in this capacity, but I desire to work in a one-to-one situation. If the right situation arises in a full time capacity I am willing to terminate my current work position to fulfill my desire to use my skills in one on one care. I have experience with Seniors in non-professional capacities where I invest time with them because it is a joy. Some of the ways I have invested my time have been to plan and organize activities for Seniors who are able to attend such as luncheons, fall tour travel, craft clubs, reading clubs, game clubs and Bible Studies, I also visited the shut-ins who are unable to leave their home unassisted, to read to them, play games with them or just chat, realizing that I may be the only person they converse with that day. It is my goal to improve the quality of their life and enhance the activities of daily living for them. In conclusion, I do what I do because I value the elder generation. I feel they are the forgotten and overlooked ones in our world today that deserve our best on their behalf. I have and will continue to work to bring quality of life to them in every way I can.
