Applicant's Story

Regarding your work experience, what's most appealing to you?

'The changes I can accomplish'

When do you know you've done a good job? 

'I feel it'

Why are you a caregiver... or want to become one?

'I have generations of older adults in my family that have lost members of their family over the years, alongside with battling mental illnesses that affects their everyday living ON TOP of the physical burdens of old age. I am provide stood by the sides of many members of my family, helping them do what many of us would consider simple, ordinary things--such as cooking, companionship, assistance with feeding, etc. We take for granted these simple things and often don't realize how many millions of older or disabled individuals would love to possess. This is why I wanted to become a caregiver professionally.'

Tell me of a time when you were there for someone who really needed you.

'I lived with my grandmother in Montana for almost a year when she was 96 years old. She had two arthritic hips, abdominal pain, and was suffering the grief of losing a friend she held dear for six decades. What started out as a simple two-week vacation to visit her soon became semi-permanent residency when I realized she was lonely for company and was having difficulty with simple everyday tasks. I cooked for her, took her shopping, visited friends with her that lived out of town, and read to her. She was traditional and quiet, but always reminded me that she appreciated what I did.'

Think of the person who was most meaningful to you growing up. What made them special to you?

'My grandma was the only person outside of my own parents whom I really have memories spending a lot of time with, since I was a baby to the time she died just shortly after my eighteenth birthday. Though she lived in a completely different state than me, she flew out many times a year to spend it with my family, which was more so than others had done residing in the same town as I have! Growing up a nervous child, I often suffered problems with anxiety, and would end up putting myself and others down because I would have a difficult time fulfilling what I had originally promised to others. My grandma always put her confidence in me and instead of putting me down, she always put her hope into me that I could face my fears and live a fulfilling life. If my grandma were more honest, I would have started calling her George Washington.'

Please share one or two memories that you had with that person.

'When I lived with my grandmother in Montana, at one point we were sitting at the table reminiscing over the wonderful meals she used to cook when she visited us in Portland. At one point I asked her what her favorite recipe was, she told me homemade raviolis, but she had not been able to make them due to arthritis in her hands. One day, when she was at a community church meeting, I hand cranked the meat in a century-old meat grinder (manual work), made the pasta dough from scratch, and hand squeeze tomatoes for the sauce. In three hours I made over 60 raviolis ready for baking, along with a side salad and some garlic buttered french bread (from a bakery my grandma loved down the street). By the time she came home, the wonderful scent of pasta and baguette was wafting through the air. She recognized the smell and at once came up to hug me, telling me she hadn't been able to eat them in almost a decade! It made me feel wonderful to know that I had done something truly special for her, and that even in her final years, she had somebody she could lean on for support without feeling like a burden.'

How can I help create a supportive and positive work experience for you?

'I appreciate open communication between an employer and employee. I appreciate how the company has made me valued and has been very accompanying to my constantly changing schedule. I also appreciate the friendships I have garnered with other coworkers and the training they have given me.'
