My personal caregiving goals have been incredible! I have been an experienced caregiver, a patient advocate, and a caregiving consultant from a very early age. First, my sister was born with a congenital disability. Secondly, my mother was always in poor health because her liver did not work correctly. Lastly, my father had a bleeding ulcer and a significant heart attack, and I had endometriosis most of my life. So yes, I am well aware of the healthcare system.
When I was 14, I became a candy striper at the local hospital. And continued working as a candy striper until I graduated high school. Then, I continued my education in healthcare. I was getting a medical/business administration degree from Nunez Community College in 1991.
Soon after graduation, I went to work at Humana Hospital. I worked in Utilization Review, Social Services, Infection Control, Quality Assurance, Nursing, and Administration. Then I worked as an Administrative Assistant at a Home Health Agency for seven years. I was gaining vast amounts of experience that would lead me to start my own company and the beginning of my caregiving goals.
In 2000 I opened up my Homemaker/Companion Service for 12 years to gain extensive experience for my caregiving goal. When I gave up my license in 2012. I had 32 excellent employees from Louisiana to Florida. I gained much knowledge and experience from working with over 1000 patients and dealing with ailments from Alzheimer’s to Thrombosis.
In 2001 I got very ill. My tonsils were swollen, and I had a high fever. I thought it was tonsillitis. But after weeks of antibiotics, the doctors diagnosed me with Lymphoma. I went into surgery to have my lymphoid removed. After surgery, they told me I did not have cancer and was fine. After that massive ordeal, I was so angry, but the system said it was medically necessary, and that was that. So you see, I have been in every healthcare problem there is to have. This has been a learning experience for my caregiving goals.
I gave up my business because of the growing problems in healthcare and the caregiving industry. The ridiculous rules and regulations will not allow me to give tender loving care. I did not want to give up without trying to do something to better the industry, so I wrote a book. I tried to teach everyone how to care for their loved ones; this was the second phase of my caregiving goals.
The Ultimate Compassionate Guide to Caregiving is a new and innovative book. It is here to assist with all aspects of daily living. It is designed to teach you to care for your family’s loved ones. I am keeping them at home independently in the 21st century. Implementing my mission involves listening closely to patients and taking the time to learn about their needs, and understanding their environment through my work with hundreds of patients. I have established a reputation for our capabilities in private and healthcare settings for my caregiving goals.
It will take the overwhelming focus on the unknown. And provide personalized attention to the most delicate detail. It will cover a great deal of information. Guiding everyone in everything, there is to know about caring for anyone anytime in a gratifying manner. The book’s intended audience will be everyone caring for a loved one. This book started as an educational tool for my employees. To care for others in the home as if I were providing the care myself. In creating this book, I have examined the obstacles of caregiving, such as working families not having the time or knowledge to care for their loved ones properly. And the rising cost of our health care system.
By establishing a connection, which is our flawed healthcare system. I relate to the problem. And am passionate and knowledgeable about fixing it. It is my morally obligated to share my experience and product with the world. As a caregiver, I dedicate my life to helping others in need. I would love to assist and educate everyone in the caregiving industry for the next endeavor of my caregiving goals. As well as those family members providing care to their aging loved ones at home. With attention to every detail, with the utmost care and compassion. As we know, when you are cared for properly, you look and feel better. My philosophy is to strive to teach others to fully appreciate and understand all aspects of caring for others.
I want to find a new niche in the caregiving industry. To help with the many problems facing today’s home caregiving services. As we grow older, caregiving gets more complex and complicated. But aging or illness does not have to result in giving up your home or your lifestyle. I have always been a leader. And being my boss will give me great satisfaction in helping many people and industries at once with my caregiving goals.
This is a long-term plan. I want to create a virtual company that will help everyone in the caregiving industry. I would love to educate and inspire caregivers, children of senior parents, and seniors to fulfill my caregiving goals.
I have a massive support system from every corner of caregiving. I have the support of social media, senior centers, churches, hospitals, case managers, gerontologists, hospices, home health agencies, homemaker/companion services, caregivers, and more.
I am not trying to prove anything to others or myself. Just trying to help fix today’s healthcare crisis. Furthermore, I will be a senior citizen one day. And it scares me to know how things will evolve for my healthcare and retirement. As of 2015, we are in crisis mode. We are heading for catastrophe between the Millennial, baby boomers, and sandwich generation. We need to educate ourselves and train caregivers properly. And fix our growing healthcare problems to have a proper caregiving goal in this country and beyond.
