Why I Want To Be A Caregiver

I am dependable, mature, knowledgable, and I love people, all ages. I am confident in my abilities and always have my patients well-being at heart. I understand the importance of being dependable and stable for your patients, they must be able to depend on you. I enjoy taking care of others and feel they deserve the very best. I go the extra mile to make sure my patients are comfortable and feel secure. I don't consider being a CNA a job, it's work when you do not enjoy what you are doing, I totally enjoy my life! I am very lucky in that I have always had great patients. Many home health care workers do not understand that you are doing a very personal service; you are in the patients home and should always respect them, their families, and items. Everyone is bound to have a bad day on occasion, when it becomes too often there needs to be a change. At times you must be creative and try new and different things with your patients, perhaps a new card game, read an exciting book to them, take them for walks when possible. Help them with a flower garden. You can't be afraid to listen and respond to their needs, even if they don't realize what their needs are. Most accidents happen at night because your patient can not remember their legs no longer work and they need help, be there for encouragement, lovingly encourage them to be as independent as possible and suggest alternative methods until you find one they are comfortable with and is in accordance with their healthcare plan. Just because your patients are elderly or have a disability, they still think, perhaps it's not a normal thought pattern but you must be able to address them on a level they can understand and know you have their best interest at heart. Talk to them explain why you do things and how you are going to do them for their benefit. I realize every patient is different AD patients require repetition they do not tolerate change very well. I also speak fluent Spanish. I am actually in The Republic of Panama now assisting with the Asylo, an equivalent to assisted living in the U.S. I hope to be returning the end of January and will be looking for employment. Thank you for your time and patience. I look forwarding to hearing from you soon. Sincerely, Susie M. Hallman

Why You Should Hire Me

First of all I am dependable, I understand the importance of being where you say you will be! I am compassionate, understanding, mature, and flexible. There are sometimes issues you need to address when your shift ends at 7 and your patient has a need at 6:55, I go the extra mile and take care of their need, I wouldn't want to be without something because of 30 minutes or an hour. I always get to work 30 minutes early, I am never in a hurry and always patient. It's important your patients know you have time for them AND my opinion is if you can not make a little extra time for your patients when they need you, you have chosen the wrong career. We are dealing with people here not robots! Thank you for your consideration. Sincerely, Susie M. Hallman
